Our way of working finds itself in a state of flux. This change is not entirely new or uncommon. New technologies are influencing tomorrow’s working environment and even if, at present, a few workers and companies are still fighting against changes, they will in the future be forced to acclimatise to certain developments.
These days, modern employees must be involved in lifelong learning because work processes are changing faster than in the past century and are partly digitised and automated.
However, companies are increasingly becoming more transparent and the modern human resource policy relies on open communication, trust and flexibility. Websites, such as Great Place To Work or the muse, offer direct insight into the work climate of firms. Whoever wants to attract talent, and keep it long term, has to present itself as a more attractive employer and implement concepts like life and workplace flexibility. Management personnel who ignore the modern form of working run the risk of losing talent and damaging the employee satisfaction and productivity with their work climate.
The following developments and trends will have a say in the working world of tomorrow.

We have received the following question from a reader and thought that the topic would be interesting for mums and dads that have taken time off from their careers to stay home with their kids and are now trying to re-enter the workforce.
“I used to work for a telecommunications company; I started in the early ninety’s, when mobile communication was just beginning to become more available to the public. It was an exciting time and everything was changing. I was good at my job and one of the few women on the team.

Recruiters look at my CV and then wonder what I’ve been doing for the past 16 years. Do I tell recruiters I decided to become a stay-at-home mom, turning down my chance to make it up the corporate ladder? How do I get back out there?”
