Many believe that remote work is here to stay, and while it may be a part of the future of work, the real future of work is more about flexibility than remote work in and out of itself.
The real future of work will be about empowering workers to accomplish goals by allowing them to have more flexibility and control over their work days. Remote work is part of this reality, and some believe that in the near future, the majority of the world’s workforce could be permanent remote workers.
As a result, the world of work needs to change and adapt to changing work models and preferences. Rather than having rigid work hours, employees will demand flexibility in the hopes of better integrating our personal lives with our work.
Already, we are seeing a shift towards being more accepting of how work wraps around our personal schedules, rather than the other way around. For this reasons, employee output and performance will be less dependent on the amount of hours worked and rather focus on performance, deliverables, and accomplished goals.
