Remote Work Is The Future Of Work
Workers are changing jobs twice as often as older generations as they become less satisfied with their current jobs. Over 60% would switch jobs for the opportunity to work from home and over 90% are happier with the option to work remotely and flexible hours. Knowledge workers, such as software developers and writers, are leaving their jobs because they aren’t allowed to work remotely. It’s no wonder that employees want to work from home as its flexibility allows for more time with family, increased overall morale, and increased overall savings.
With AI taking over many smaller, more routine parts of work, skills that are important in human relationships and creativity will become more central to how businesses operate. Nap rooms or other activities and areas may seem silly now, but with a future so reliant on employee wellness and ability to stay creative, steps like these might not be so ridiculous. Work will be based more around collaboration, with teams not divided by a hierarchy, rather working together to achieve their goals. Work is changing and jobs of the future will need to adapt to the needs of employees to stay ahead of the competition.
