The Future of Work data (also being described as workplace or workforce transformation) is similar to Digital Transformation but aligned more to the human nature, attitudes, and trends of today’s workforce including the effect of automation on jobs, the Gig Economy, RPA, etc. Several HR SaaS and HCM platforms try and align themselves with the term.

For more context, here are two excellent resources from McKinsey and Accenture that explain the concept in more detail.

Future of Work Data

When analyzing the future of work data, it’s important to understand who exactly the audience is, and which future of work influencers are really driving the conversation forward. Social data can tell us who is the most influential by several data points to include reach, relevant, residence, and reference. Most of this data comes from the 1-9-90 model of influence.

The topics that are resonating with the media is an effective way for PR measurement. The graph above is what called a conversation analysis, which in this case is more of a media coverage analysis and represent the topics that the media are writing about the most.
