Work is rapidly changing and jobs of the future will look very different from what we’re used to. Many workers aren’t satisfied with their traditional jobs and are looking for remote alternatives. Many knowledge workers, such as writers and software developers, have quit their jobs because they weren’t allowed to work remotely. Over 60% of workers would switch jobs for the opportunity to work from home. Remote workers have also reported being much more happy than their traditional work counterparts. Flexible work also lets employees have more savings, more time for family, and better overall morale.
This points to a future of work much more centered on employee wellness and collaboration. As more menial tasks are taken over by AI, teamwork and skills that are important for human relationships and creativity will become vital for a business to thrive. People management, negotiation, emotional intelligence, and complex problem solving are all skills that are becoming more and more important to maintain successful careers. Workspaces of the future will need to cultivate these skills if they want to stay ahead of the competition.
