Although the pandemic is still upon us there is much speculation about how we will 'work' after it eventually leaves us. There have been huge changes to the way that organisations communicate, moving to online chat, video conferencing, emails and such like.
For many flexible working has been accelerated, the current situation has showed that employees can work from home and businesses can function without a physical office space. So what does this mean for the future of work? Will the typical working day still exist?
There are many views about what will be important in work and what this will mean for people professionals. Things such as having more choice at work, the importance of values and behaviours in strategic decision making, supporting wellbeing, a clear focus on purpose and the importance of inclusivity will all become important factors in how businesses work within the new landscape.
The ‘typical’ workday will no longer exist. Employees will have friendlier relationships with colleagues and will feel more comfortable participating in 1-2-1 video conferences.
