Jul 10, 2020

Inventions have always been a part of human life, be it the spread of the world wide web or the use of cloud storage systems. Tackling long cumbersome procedures to send a piece of information across, mankind today had enhanced it to a 'click of a button'. The thirst to invent and innovate assisted the curious minds to quench the need for intricate machines that made lives simpler. The necessity of ease.

Man, acknowledging the proverb, 'Necessity is the mother of invention', successfully claimed and patented to himself a variety of inventions that have evolved beings, making it simplistic and empowering.

With the latest digital contraption of Chat-Bots in the field of AI and Machine Learning, workplaces are trending with efficient levels of communication and assistance, 24/7. This change showed increased trust on brands, given the quick response and mentoring as and when it is needed. With world leaders pursuing to reach the zenith and emerge as the best, inventors are now racing with the answer to 'what more for tomorrow?'

'Blended Workforce'

An idea that is on the edge of conceptualization, is the talk now for progressing digital workplaces and the answer to what offices and institutions would soon have.

Blended workforce would simply mean a team inclusive of well-equipped robots, powered by AI & machine learning, working along with humans, on a common organizational goal with clear forms of inter-dependency and combined growth.

In a nutshell, machines that earlier simplified human task, would work along with them, pre-designed to perform a particular task in the office; majorly transforming workplaces into digitally trending at all times, with higher levels of competence and productivity.

The idea to a better tomorrow

The idea can often be misinterpreted as the death or elimination of human employment, which is false. Blended workforce mean that robots would be employed for low-value skilled jobs. These involve entering data, storing, retrieving, sorting and organizing it as needed for complex activities. Automation will be tuned right and will have great impact on the workplace.

Apart from this, the major advantage of having a blended workforce is 'deciphering of data'. With continuous access to data, an AI machine will be an asset in understanding, analyzing, evaluating huge bases of data and user experience choices, possible patterns of consumers, making business harness productivity, significant and preferable over the rest, in the coming years.

Combined growth with Blended Workforce

With robots handling such jobs, man is empowered to expand the single skill set, collaborate and learn to do more, than before. With multi-tasking capabilities fueled with multi-skill set, man makes himself eligible for high-value tasks, comprising of decision making, budgeting, creative & critical thinking, chalking complex strategies, developing human bonds and emotional connections.

The latest advancement on the notion of a 'Blended Workforce', is the digital trend foreseen in the coming eras, enhancing the collaboration of multi-skilled man and robot, for the best; making human employment not obsolete but more empowering. With the global work economy embracing the idea of 'Blended Workforce', the future is now reshaping with progressions for man and life, simultaneously.
