The Four Worlds of Work in 2030

Digitization, the rise of automation, and shifting demographics are disrupting the way we work, and the way companies relate to workers. The dizzying pace of change makes it difficult to plan for the long-term. With so many complex forces at play, making linear predictions based on recent trends is too simplistic.

We at PwC envision four alternative future worlds of work, each named with a color. These admittedly extreme examples of how work could look in 2030 are shaped by the ways people and organizations respond to the forces of collectivism and individualism, on one axis, and integration and fragmentation on the other.

  1. The “Workforce of the future” report draws on research begun in 2007 by a team from PwC and the James Martin Institute for Science and Civilisation at the Said Business School in Oxford, and a specially commissioned survey of 10,000 people in China, India, Germany, the UK and the US. This has given insights into how people think the workplace will evolve and how this will affect their employment prospects and future working lives. Includes sections on the “four worlds of work.”
