Have we arrived at the 'future of work'?

Are we there yet? No, we're still some way off the 'future of work'. Just read a few job adverts to see 'old of ways of working' are still common practice:

❌ "5+ years of experience ..."

❌ Focus on a long list of tasks and responsibilities

❌ Limited view of flexibility - most search options are full-time, part-time, contract, or casual

The move to more forward-thinking talent practices will take a mix of top-down and bottom-up approaches.

One such bottom-up approach is better job briefs. Specifically questioning at the outset of hiring:

⭐ How can the role be looked at more flexibly? Internal mobility, job-share, term-time employment etc.

⭐ What outcomes will someone achieve if they are performing the role well?

⭐ Dig deeper and prioritise transferable skills. Instead of a long list of vague generic terms, hone in on the most important skills and explore further.

⭐ Focus on quality of experience not the quantity of experience.

The Role Canvas is a simple tool to help you conduct better job briefs. You can download it for free here:
