Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream. A dream that seemed almost impossible at the time. Bit by bit, his dream is becoming a reality. It take a lot of work, people and fortitude to make these kinds of monumental shifts happen.
These are the dreams I have for tomorrow’s workforce. Perhaps one day, we’ll see some of these happen too!
- Healthcare is owned by the individual, not the employer.
- CEO salaries are only a tad bit higher than the average worker’s.
- All companies will be “searchable” and findable in a public database.
- Salaries are no-longer a secret. They are public information to all.
- Advertized jobs will specify more accurately and clearly what the job requires and will include salary information.
- US Companies wanting to “off-shore” production and services will be penalized.
- Unions will be eliminated to create a freer economy.
- Teacher’s will be required to take a sebbatical to gain “real world” experience.
- Self employment and entrepreneurship are encouraged.
- The cost of a college education is attainable by any or all who wish to pursue and complete.
- Mentorship, training and development will be accessible to all employees who ask and take ownership of their developmental needs.
- Those who break moral or ethical laws will be publicly punished.
I believe in survival of the fittest. I do not believe anyone is entitled to anything. I also believe that many of the systems we’ve created are of benefit to some, not many. My hope and dream is that we can live and work in a world that is fair, moral and looks at the long-term outcomes and consequences. How that happens exactly, requires a major shift.
What would you dream for in tomorrow’s workforce?
