A study carried out by industry analyst Gartner shows that organisations will need to plan for "increasingly chaotic environments" out of their direct control, as trends such as the 'de-routinisation of work' and 'work swarms' occur.
According to the organisation, work swarms occur when companies use every available person to focus on a task, and are likely to be far more prevalent in 2020 as firms look for cost-effective strategies.
Gartner added that the concept of 'my place' will also come to the fore in the workplace - which is the idea that the lines between personal, professional, social and family matters, along with organisation subjects, will disappear.
The research follows a study by Association of Professional Staffing Companies which showed that almost a third of recruiters intend to expand overseas in the next 12 months.
