Skills Marketplace – A Future of Work Trend
Badges and visual cues are helping to call out proven talent and skills to help distinguish capable individuals.
As we examine the trends in PSFK’s Future of Work report, we see that companies are changing their internal structure to allow for the rapid assembly of interdisciplinary teams that are tailor-made to solve specific problems. This style of project-oriented workflow requires a new type of relationship between employers and employees including the ability to quickly match workers to projects by skill set. Social tools are emerging that allow workers to paint a more accurate picture of their professional skill sets and personal interests, allowing employers and likeminded collaborators to identify and partner with them more quickly.
