New ways of working: Being a manager in 2025

March, 27

We always tell you the same: Change is the only constant. Even more in the recent years, where technologies are evolving at a so fast rhythm. And the only and one solution we have to handle changes is getting adapted to them: the sooner, the better.

Therefore, we bring you the foresights for the upcoming years regarding new ways of working and new ways of management.

  • Gamification, a constant in the work-life.

Gamification will be a very present tool in the work-life. In fact, many companies have already some kind of gamification system that helps them recruiting, find hidden talent, or innovate. Discovering the talent and potential of your workforce, innovate and communicate are actually the key points of Nextinit.

The manager of 2025 will embrace new ways of working

  • Bots, the new colleagues

Working with an artificial intelligence may improve and make easier everyday tasks. We are already seeing some tools based on AI helping us: in Japan, un algorithm (developed by the startup Amareos) tells the brokers the stock markets trends on real time. In France, the insurance company Crédit Mutuel has bots to classify mails and answer the most frequent questions.

  • Welcome back, meetings!

Meetings have been longtime considered as a waste of time; however, they have demonstrated to have benefits, as enhancing collaboration among teams, developing creative thinking, and, in conclusion, allowing the exchange of different points of view.

We bring you the foresights for the upcoming years regarding new ways of working and new ways of management.

  • Bye bye, hierarchies

In a few years, there won’t be “bosses” anymore, but leaders, managers helping his/hers collaborators to progress.

  • Manager, we love you!

Following this line, managers will take care as well of a holistic “feeling good” at the team. They will complete their skills and knowledge with cognitive sciences or dietetics, for instance. The well being and a good shape will be, very soon, part of the manager’s tasks.

  • Manager, democratically elected

Teams will chose their managers. This selection will be based not only on titles and expertise, but also on the savoir-être and charisma.

  • … And democratically elected

Teams will chose their managers. This selection will be based not only on titles and expertise, but also on the savoir-être and charisma.

  • Continuous (and mutual!) evaluation

There won’t be annual evaluation meetings, but feedback will be almost continuous. But also mutual, and it will flow in both directions; managers will also receive constant feedback from the rest of the company.
