What To Expect From The Future Of Work

Research from the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) revealed that 65% of employers said that maintaining morale in the midst of the pandemic has been challenging. The adjustment to remote working has not been an easy one for some. However, this new way of working has opened a door of possibilities in changing how we work now and in the future.

It is clear that remote working will become more readily adopted even after lockdowns have been lifted. While some companies may opt for a totally remote workforce, those who keep centralized offices will be forced to make some major changes. This includes pivoting away from popular open floor plans and shared workspaces, the return of private offices and cubicles to implement physical distancing, temperature checks, potential telemedicine opportunities and more.

Redesigning offices won’t be the only major change we see post-pandemic. Companies will also have stricter guidelines for workwear as well, such as General Motors, which is requiring employees return to work in certain plants wearing PPE.

Additionally, the emotional impact of this new way of living has led many people to experience periods of depression. SHRM research found that one in four employees reported feeling down, depressed or hopeless often. That is why mental health practitioners will likely become a more vital part of a company’s staff.

Chief human resource officers will also be essential for companies moving forward as a strong CHRO can help guide employees through unprecedented circumstances such as this one.
