Contemporary Challenges to the People of Intellectual Labour
AbstractThe article deals with the problems connected with the result from the labour of intellectuals. In the countries with developed economies one can notice tendencies towards a strong decrease of manual labour participation and intensive increase of the share of those employed in services and intellectual labour. On this background a number of important and complex by character problems are already outlined. They are valid not only for the developed economies but also for our country, which for more than a decade is in a difficult transition. They include: new requirements towards the people of intellectual labour (employees and managers); difficulties in measuring the results from this labour; need of special care for creating skills and motivation for increased innovation activity of the people of knowledge. The discussed problems are valid in an equal degree for economists researchers and managers, technologists, sociologists, IT specialists, people from the sphere of education, health care, administrative servicing and politicians.
