Workfast – Check out the latest tech aiding businesses on their temp staff needs

workfast-logoIn the early days, technological advancements were mainly associated with efficiency. It meant that human intervention was taken out of the equation and replaced with automation, thereby changing the very foundations of how work was carried out. As most would initially imagine, digital is all about emotionless efficiency and taking out the distinct human touch, yes? Actually, no.

These days, thanks to the ever-evolving advancements in social media and collaboration, digital tech has once again transformed work – drastically augmenting brain and brawn to improve both the collaborative and cognitive aspects of work and also pushing the physical possibilities of humans, highly supporting the reorganization of the workforce into open environments to enable greater collaboration, democratizing how work is conducted, breaking down conventional boundaries, and thus forever changing our ideas and perspectives on how an organization must be run from every level — from the bottom all the way to the top.

Simply put, this new tech is quite far from dehumanizing. It is actually the future of work. It is more democratic, networked, and humane. It is exactly what shall make work become radically more human in many ways: more collaborative, more flexible, more tailored to individual strengths, and more meaningful to both employers and employees within the organization.

Before the digital age, companies usually are content getting by with underestimating the role of workforce planning, and as a result, their businesses suffer tremendously due to unexpected skilled manpower shortages.

  2. Wow, this is a really interesting idea “you can then start bidding for work. It is up to you to choose where, when, and for whom you want to work”. I wonder if it works out good for the workers who use the service?

    The ability to choose between being a contractor or an employee seems like a good benefit for certain people who prefer to be self employed.
