What will the future of work look like

Many of today’s workers are not satisfied with their current jobs. Many of them have been jumping from employer to employer to find the perfect workplace for them. 

According to a study by the jobs search website Executive Placements, young professionals — or workers aged 18 to 24 — change jobs 5.7 times on average compared to the older generations’ 2-3 job changes. 

Many of them are also still seeking remote work opportunities. More than three in 10 knowledge workers quit their jobs because they cannot work remotely. At the same time, 61% said that they would switch their jobs for the opportunity to work from home. 

A staggering 91% said they would be happier with flexible hours and remote working opportunities.

As many workplaces continue to change, Executive Placements laid out what the jobs of tomorrow would look like. Here are their predictions:

  • Flexible workspaces will offer a variety of options so employees can choose where to work.
  • Smaller organizations will flourish and collaborate without the cost of bigger businesses.
  • People will be drawn to organizations with less hierarchy, where work will be based on teams and collaboration, and everyone can be a leader.
  • There will be an emphasis on wellness in workspaces so employees can remain comfortable at work.
  • Workers at all levels will use digital assistants — like Siri or Alexa — to sort and prioritize tasks. 
  • A new executive role called the Chief of Work could be created to help maintain company culture.
  • Smarter brainstorming will be critical for people working across different groups and locations. 
  • Informal get-togethers will take place online through VR and AR headsets. 

Executive Placements’ report also emphasized that as AI and technology take over more aspects of work, creativity and human relationship will become key to successful careers. 

So, is your organization ready for the future of work?
