Current and Future Workplace Trends
With all the changes and evolution in our society today, trends in workplaces have been changing as well.
Traditional work setup that we all used to know is being replaced by new ones which seemingly heightens the efficiency of the current employees.
So it would be safe to say that knowing those current trends would be beneficial not just for your employees but especially for your business.
REMOTE WORKING: THE HOTTEST TREND
We are so used to working at our own tables in the company but for the past few years, working in the comfort of our home is becoming one of the hottest trends. It has proven to give a lot of benefits and advantages for both the employee and the employer.
The recent COVID-19 pandemic also created vast changes in everyone’s life and boosted this remote working setup even more. People could only go out of their house limitedly to keep out from the danger of the virus. Due to that, matters about education and jobs need to be adjusted drastically. Everyone is now studying and working from their own home.
Thanks to the technological advancement that we now have, doing all these things are now possible. We could have computers or laptops at home that are connected to your internet connection and viola, you are now ready for a remote work arrangement.
MAKING WAY FOR THE MILLENIALS AND GEN Z
As the baby boomers are now retiring one by one, we could simply imagine that the millenials and the gen Z are starting to dominate the workforce population. They may have been given a stigma about their personality and stuff but in reality, they are one of the most efficient generations we could ever have.
Being born in the era of evolving technology leads them to being tech savvy which is a great advantage to this generation. They seek for integrity and are full of creative ideas that could drive a company’s success.
They are that generation that is up for any challenges. They would be working hard and stay for a long time in a company that could offer them integrity and respect for their hard work.
IT IS TIME TO REINVENT YOUR HR DEPARTMENT
The HR Department is the one who is directly responsible for seeing what every employee in the company needs and wants. So with the new trends you need to adapt to your workplace, your HR should also be reinventing their way too.
You and the HR should discuss being open with hiring outsourced talents. They can be freelancers or independent consultants that could greatly help the work loads without the need of long-term work commitment with them.
Your HR department should also be more flexible in finding potential candidates. Knowing the term “learn how to learn” is pretty important with this subject and could lead you to great talents for the company.
Having a different perspective could also help reinventing ways of hiring new employees and engaging with the existing ones. Work training programs and racing out to educational institutions are some new ideas the department could work on with their new perspective.
