Some of these changes may spell out as challenging for workers and employers but are essential for the growth of the modern workplace.
Less Meetings –
Recent research has suggested that meetings may be becoming less important in the post pandemic world.
They were essential during work from home era of the pandemic, however, now research suggests we should only be having meetings got issues that need them.
Doing this is said to increase productivity in the workplace.
More Artificial Intelligence –
As technology progresses, the increase in AI in the workforce is more than expected.
Programs such as ChatGP3 can prepare papers based on a handful of key words and have forced organizations to consider whether AI could be beneficial to their business.
Although it may look good on paper, workplaces are still warned to examine the possible negative implications of using AI before fully incorporating it.
No More Work From Home –
As the world moves further away from the pandemic, more people have returned to the office and left the work from home set up alone.
Employers are also losing their appetite for the practice preferring employees to return to the office for face-to-face contact.
Business experts expect work from home to be only used for those who cannot get to the office, not for those who chose not to go to the office.
More Sustainability Initiatives –
With more and more employees becoming eco and socially conscious outside of work, it is expected that workplaces follow suit with more measures to keep employees happy.
It is expected that we will see more corporate programs that benefit First Nations people, the LGBTQI+ community, people with disabilities and people from migrant backgrounds.
Climate Change Job Loss –
As workplaces become more sustainable, traditional industries will be forced to re-evaluate their operations as governments more towards sustainability.
Mining and forestry will be the biggest sectors at risk of job losses due to government-led changes to lower greenhouse gas emissions.
It will be the job of governments to reskill and train these communities in areas where skilled workers are needed if job loss occurs.
