Workplaces have drastically evolved over the past five years with flexible working driving a big chunk of the transformation. This has led to advanced expectations of the workplace, more digital nomads, and an increase of companies adopting flexible options overall.
Flexible schedules are one of the biggest changes seen in work atmospheres. Now, the traditional 9-to-5 has been revolutionized as technology allows us to log on from anywhere in the world. This has birthed a 24-hour culture, where employees can work at any point in the day.
Communication in the workplace has also changed dramatically. Email is the biggest method of communication over phone or face-to-face interactions.
With such technological advancements, being present in the work environment has a different meaning aside from physically being in the space. It’s more about efficiently communicating with colleagues, the flow of information, and successfully operating everyday tasks.
Companies will have to inevitably adapt to the changing technology and communication methods that are weaving into the workplace. Businesses who do not adopt these practices risk losing talent.
