WORK ANYWHERE AT ANY TIME
“Technological innovation has caused a shuffling of work time and play time. People are using a variety of personal devices to keep up with their work wherever they are. The Institute for the Future argues that rather than being ‘always on’, workers can use evolving technology to work more productively and achieve better results in a shorter time. The Future of Work report highlights how technology can set people free “from many of the fixed time, location, and work flow constraints that typify a traditional job.” (New Ways of Working, p. 11)
PURPOSE DRIVEN WORK
“If organizations are to be seen as ‘Purpose-driven’ they will no longer be able to rely on limited Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives. This view of Purpose in the world requires a radical shift in business strategy and leadership-from a culture of competition to a culture of collaboration, where ‘hybrid leaders’ can work across sectors.” (New Ways of Working, p. 20)
THE END OF FIXED ABILITIES
“Employers and workers need a lifelong growth mentality about skills, instead of fixed ability, qualifications-based concepts.” (New Ways of Working, p. 27)
“Traditional wellbeing initiatives have been seen as crisis-management tools designed to stop people burning out or succumbing to issues like stress. Yet, increasingly companies are viewing stress management, resilience and mindfulness as resources every bit as essential to productivity as a smartphone or a computer.” (New Ways of Working, p. 45).
THE END OF THE OFFICE
“The traditional office is built around an assumption that people are most productive at their desks. And yet, the rise of remote working and Bring Your Own Device schemes means having access to a desk is no longer essential.” (New Ways of Working, p. 57)
