If companies currently think they have a problem filling the skills gap and as a result vacancies, research at Cordant Recruitment suggests it will reach critical mass by 2020 without careful consideration. 

Research at Cordant Recruitment indicates that the workplace of the future will be the most diverse the world has ever seen. In 2020, multiple generations working together will have different skills, experiences, habits, and motivations also more workers will be freelancers and contractors.

Globalisation and a rapidly evolving workforce are redefining how we think about competence, creativity, productivity, and the structuring of organizations. Ongoing globalization and macroeconomic shifts mean the 2020 workforce will be made up of a wider group of ages and nationalities than ever before.

In order to succeed, companies will need to have a broader understanding of their people and the markets in which they operate.
