TODAY’S WORK IS MORE COMPLEX
Over the past ten years, much of our structured and process-oriented work has been automated or outsourced. Our work today is unstructured, complex, and creative, requiring more intense periods of focus and collaboration.
GENERATIONS OF WORKERS ARE SHIFTING
As experienced and skilled baby boomers head to retirement, organizations must appeal to younger cohorts of workers (Gen X, Gen Y and Gen Z). By 2030, it is predicted that 75% of the workforce will be Millennials (also known as Gen Y). Millennials tend to seek work/life balance, seamless technology, and inspiring workspaces. Companies may also need to seek talent from a broader geographic area, creating a virtual and distributed workforce.
TECHNOLOGY CONTINUES TO SHAPE HOW WE WORK
Today’s powerful mobile devices, ubiquitous internet access, and cloud-based applications make working anywhere, anytime, possible. Companies must employ strategies, such as BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), to meet the expectations of a younger and more tech-savvy workforce.
