2025 workforce to be human and bot led, CIOs agree


A new study reports that the workforce, workplace, and the technologies that support them will be so different by 2025 that enterprises need to begin preparing now

San Francisco headquartered OneLogin conducted a study of 100 CIOs of companies with at least 5,000 employees reports that the majority of CIOs surveyed, across the U.S., EMEA, and Asia-Pacific, agreed that the volume, complexity, and pace of business change is accelerating much faster today than at the beginning of this decade.

It also found that 97 per cent of the CIOs surveyed believe technology will grow in sophistication and complexity in the next six years and that workforces will be dispersed across various geographies and time zones.

The CIOs recognised that work now occurs anywhere at any time, with 58 per cent agreeing that remote working will increase significantly over the next six years.

43 per cent of employees said they work remotely at least part-time, and 69 per cent of professionals say workplace flexibility is a critical issue when evaluating potential employers.

Shams Mansoor, Manager of IT at Evernote, who has a partnership with OneLogin, said: “Here at Evernote, our workforce, workplace, and technologies are constantly evolving to keep up with the demand of our 225 million users. We believe that with OneLogin’s access management platform, we will continue to succeed for years to come through simple and secure access.”
