The biggest job shift in modern history - are you ready?


job transfer

These are busy days for managers and leaders. You face challenges ranging from digitalisation journeys to employee development and skills shortages. How will you find the time to drive all the change required? At the same time, the biggest job shift in modern history is happening. Here, we tell you why it's time to take action and move into new times - because the old ones are never coming back.


How did we get here?

For many years we talked about digitalisation and a transformation of the labour market, but frankly not much happened. But then overnight the offices closed and we started working from home. The pandemic was a fact and many people started working remotely, with digitalisation journeys taking off at breakneck speed as a result. With that came new challenges and many managers are now wondering how to create participation and engagement when we are not seen in the same way.


From change management to continuous change

As a manager today, you must be a master of change management. Change in companies, organisations and society at large is no longer something that happens every now and then. Instead, change happens all the time. Despite this, many managers today find it difficult to lead change. And that needs to change - because your people will demand it.

People will change jobs like never before

Perhaps you've already noticed that it's harder to recruit - and retain - your best people? It's clearly the main consequence of the biggest job shift in modern history. In the near future, your employees won't stay at work in the same way and the battle for skills will begin in earnest.

One of the reasons for the large shift in work is that people today, especially the younger generation, demand meaningfulness. They are not satisfied with a bad boss and do not go to work just to make money. As a leader, you have a big challenge in not risking that the best talents go to an employer where they feel more meaningful.


The old will not return

"The new normal" - a phrase we've all heard ad nauseam. But the new normal is here to stay, and change is happening whether we like it or not. That's why you can't wait. Trends and research suggest that we managers need to get better at creating meaning, driving self-leadership, getting a feedback culture and implementing learning into everyday life. Your employees want to see this change, and it needs to start with you. And soon, because the old days are not coming back.


But, where to start?

It can be really difficult and hard to get to grips with all this. That's why Rolf is inviting you to a webinar where you will get some thoughts and analysis on what you need to do as a manager to drive change.

In this webinar, you'll get tips on how to adapt to develop, inspire, give feedback and make quick decisions in a world of change. Among other things, you will learn about:


  • Research and trends on job mobility and new challenges for managers
  • How to prepare your leadership and employees for change
  • The importance of reflection, feedback and learning in everyday life
  • Why the main resistance to change is among middle managers


The webinar will take place Thursday 27 October at 10.00 a.m..
