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.
