The Future of Work: South Africa’s Shift to Remote Work and the Role of Tech Retailers

The landscape of work in South Africa is rapidly transforming as remote work gains momentum across industries. The rise of remote work in South Africa has been fuelled by advancements in technology, the desire for work-life balance and cost-saving opportunities for businesses and organizations.

As remote work becomes a preferred option, tech retailers in South Africa are stepping up to provide the necessary tools and solutions for success.

In this era of digital transformation, disruption has become a constant phenomenon in the world of work, resulting to a mass migration to remote and then hybrid work, causing talent shortages across many industries, as some jobs, according to the latest report from the World Economic Forum, are fast declining in demand while the advent of new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Internet of Things as well as Cloud Computing are creating new jobs.

Also more than 75% of organizations are already considering the adoption of these technologies in the next five years from 2023.

Ready for the future
While about 23% of jobs are expected to change by 2027, with 69 million new jobs created and 83 million eliminated, tech retailers in South Africa are expected to play a pivotal role in preparing South Africans for the future of work and heralding the shift to remote work for businesses and individuals.

Lack access to resources
The World Economic Forum’s 2023 Future of Jobs Reports that 44 percent of worker skills will be disrupted over the next five years with Analytical Skills, Creative Thinking and Technological Literacy among those in the greatest demand. The WEF also predicts that six in ten employees will require further skills training, but many will lack access to the resources they need.

As affirmed by the South Africa Economic Outlook 2023 carried out by the PWC, job landscape and technological change in South Africa are part of challenges being faced by the local companies, businesses and organizations, making it imperative for tech retailers like PC International to provide a comprehensive range of hardware, software, collaborative tools and support services tailored to the needs of remote workers.
