According to Pew Research Center, by 2025, 83 percent of experts say that wearable tech will have a “widespread and beneficial effect” on the consumers. It can be expected that in the next five years, wearables which are a novelty now, will become the norm. People will be able to feel “augmented reality through the use of portable, wearable, implantable technologies.” As per the experts at Pew, “we’ll either fall victim to or benefit from tagging, databasing, and intelligent analytical mapping of the physical and social realms.” Or we may face both. This will be amazing for the workforce of 2020.
WorkPlace Wearables will be Common in 5 Years
As per predictions by Forrester Research, wearable enterprise is on the verge of enhancing many areas of business. The services which wearable devices provide will cause a change in the way our lives are managed and in the process, change the way we work.
Here are some trends of wearable devices which will cause an effect on the workplace in 2020.
- Improvement in Accuracy
In the coming years, our personal experiences will be stored in cloud memory. This will enhance productivity and accuracy. Employees will be able to record their experiences while training immediately into the cloud and use it for later. This will make the performance of the employees faster and better.
- Improved Communication
With wearables, the power to communicate as well as its reach will be improved. If our co-workers are stressed out, we might even be prompted to help them out. A bracelet named TACTILU, is already being developed which will allow tactile communication between two people at a distance.
- Different Measurement of Job Satisfaction and Productivity
“Emotional state” will be included while measuring success in work performance. This will be done through data from wearable sensors. There will be access to lifestyle and behavioral profile of employees which will help in determining the ways to get optimal performance in workplace. With better insights, better employee management will be possible.
- Wearables will Analyze Candidates for a Job
Wearables will analyze a candidate for probable jobs. Advanced versions of apps like Moodies will help in conducting voice analysis during interviews. This app provides emotion analytics to detect how a candidate is feeling. With other wearables, it will be possible to find out the character and personality traits of the candidate.
- Better Work
With wearables, it will be easier to work than even before. You will be able to manage your tasks better and accomplish them. You will also be able to set the device so that your boss will be in the loop and there will be accountability.
In the next five years, we will be more connected using wearables, we will remember more and be more intuitive. All these insights can hopefully lead us to understand each other better and collaborate in a better way.
