It doesn’t really matter if you think that the rise of on-demand technology will make a positive or negative impact on the workforce – regardless of where you fall on that issue, it’s becoming hard to deny that it will have some kind of major effect.
We live in a world where customers want more and more value out of their products and services – and can you blame them? We’ve become so used to our needs being fulfilled at the touch of a button. We can call a ride, order food and even sign up for subscription services that deliver everyday necessities on a personalized schedule. For that reason, companies need to be able to constantly adapt to the next elevated expectation.
We’re of the opinion that on demand-technology will only push organizations to become more flexible and adaptive – and in our book, that’s a positive.
Organizations and companies that are willing to create new ways to deliver the kind of experience that both customers and stakeholders expect will continue to thrive, while those that refuse to change the way they do business will undoubtedly be left behind.
It’s also important to remember that this kind of change isn’t new.
Sure, the technology powering it is, but the concept isn’t.
Lots of people are worried that an increase in on-demand technology will totally eliminate the need for human workers in the not-too-distant future. However, if we look at the kinds of technological advancements that have impacted the way we work in the past, it wasn’t the kinds of tasks that people enjoy that were eliminated.
Our assembly lines are safer, our products get to us faster, and the influence of the internet has only expanded our global conversation when it comes to what customers expect out of the companies and organizations they interact with.
None of that sounds bad, right?
