The future of work

Building resiliency in operations, employees, and culture

So much is changing about the way people work—how, when, where, and sometimes even why they work. But one thing is certain. There is no going back to the way things were.

Forces shaping the future of work

As we continue going forward into the future of work, we need to understand the forces creating it:

The Great Realignment 

People are reprioritizing and resetting their jobs and careers—on their own terms.

Technology transformation

Employees need upskilling and reskilling in the face of new technology and workflow automation. 

A sea of talent models 

It’s not easy to navigate all the talent pools and staffing options that are available.

Company culture impacts

New ways of working can create cultures of “haves” and “have nots.”

Purpose & meaningful work

Employees want more from their work experience and companies that focus on the things that matter.

Rise of remote work

Remote and hybrid work raises questions that haven’t been asked before.

Hybrid work and the employee experience

The hybrid workplace is here to stay as many organizations have made varying degrees of remote work permanent. More employees are demanding flexible work arrangements, so maximizing flexibility is critical to attract and retain top talent. 

Yet having a hybrid workforce creates new challenges and raises tough questions, especially when it comes to the employee experience:

1

How do you help employees feel connected to each other and to the company?

2

How do leaders create a positive team environment for a hybrid workforce?

3

What’s the best way to introduce technology tools for remote collaboration?
