Metaverses will change jobs and the way you work

Developing metaverses can significantly transform jobs and the work process, experts say. According to a study commissioned by Lenovo from YouGov, nearly half of respondents (44%) would like to work in the Metaverse because they believe it can increase productivity. The study involved approximately 7,500 working adults in the US, UK, Brazil, Singapore, China and Japan.

15% of the study participants still had no opinion about working in the metaverse, 21% reported indifference towards the topic and only 20% opposed working under the new conditions.

China (54%), Brazil (53%) and Singapore (51%) are the most optimistic about using the Metaverse in the workplace, where respondents believe their companies already have ample opportunities to implement new technologies. The UK (30%) and Japan (18%) are less optimistic about the new approach.

It’s worth noting that more than half of respondents (59%) believe their employers are either new to the Metaverses or haven’t started implementing them in the workplace.

The researchers believe that the introduction of metaverse technologies into work processes will accelerate the fundamental changes in the job market initiated by the COVID-19 pandemic. According to a study by the American consulting firm Bain & Company, “the COVID-19 pandemic has become a catalyst for long-overdue changes.”

According to Ken Wong, president of Lenovo Solutions and Services Group, the metaverse not only offers new opportunities, but also poses new technological challenges, including the development of computer networks, their integration with other work devices, the introduction of affordable and flexible IT solutions.

At the same time, demand for services from companies developing virtual offices within the Metaverse is growing. Microsoft is already planning to integrate virtual and augmented reality platform Mesh into Teams’ online conferencing program, Meta (owner of Facebook) has developed virtual work service Horizon Workrooms, and startups like Gather and TeamFlow have received significant investments to To develop technologies for the metaverse.
