The ABU is the Dutch branch organization for flexible work. The ABU helps temporary employment agencies and payroll companies to make temporary work and payroll of value to society. The organization’s mission is driven by four main pillars – social involvement, good employership, quality, and reliability.
Can you predict the future of work? How can we identify the main developments that affect work today? What are possible scenarios and their implications on the economy, labor participation and well-being?
We analyzed more than a thousand editorial and scientific sources; interviewed multiple thought-leaders on the future of work; held a series of roundtables with employers, scientists, and experts; and, eventually, outlined four possible outcomes for work in 2030.
The ABU and its members redefined their vision, ambition and strategy based on our ‘work in 2030’ research and scenarios (https://www.abu.nl/over-abu/). The book with twenty biggest changes of work in 2030 and four scenarios is also used in a variety of other organizations and the ministry of Social Affairs and Employment.
We use AI and other technology as instruments to create additional insights.
We combine left-side brains with right-side brains in teams that consist of analysts, tech developers, and concept makers.
We actively work together with the customer, and at the same time, we have the perseverance to control the project and realize it.
