Catch your business up on trends that are shaping the new workforce.
The workplace isn’t what it used to be. Globalization, politics, technology, and cultural changes are changing not only what workers do, but also where they do it. When the times change, your business needs to change, too. Savvy employers who want to retain their top talent should adopt policies and redesign their workplaces to embrace the following trends.
Flexible Work Schedule
Gone are the days of 9 to 5. Employees are looking for businesses that can offer them more than just a few strict hours in the office. Implementing flexible office hours is now easier than ever, and more employers are offering employees the option to work from home. Making it clear that employees must complete their workload, employees and employers share power. Working outside of the standard 9-5 tag has the capability to revolutionize your office through a high standard of work and life.
Today, there are more and more employees not only looking for a job, but also looking for a role in which they can learn from a mentor. Especially among new graduates, mentorship is becoming increasingly important. Allowing for growth under a senior employee, mentorship is rising. What’s great about it is that both parties grow and are satisfied.
Open Floor Plan
Fostering creativity, teamwork, and workplace camaraderie, open floor plans make for a positive workplace. Easily adding to the working culture, these floor plans allow the employee and business growth. The open floor plan encourages communication and breaks down hierarchies that can be hindering growth. In a comfortable environment, we’re more likely to enjoy work more and create a higher level of employee engagement.
