Mark Beaston - Chief Economist at CIPD states:
"The CIPD's strategic purpose is to champion better work and working lives and this report highlights some intriguing possibilities for the future of work that could potentially make work more productive and more meaningful. No doubt some of the trends will take off, some will not, because they depend on the interplay of many different factors as well as on the choices made by employers and employees themselves. But they provide the basis for a dialogue about how we build the workplace of the future."
So there it is
How do we build the workplace of the future?
There are many things to consider and the report breaks in to 4 different areas that highlights things to be aware of and the impact these trends are having on our employees and in our organisations.
The four areas are
- The Ageless Workforce
- The Mindful Workforce
- The Collaborative Workforce
- The Intuitive Workforce
As HR and L&D professionals we have a huge responsibility to drive and support the change needed to make our working lives better and more meaningful.
