As we may or may not notice, technology already changes the way we work nowadays. Technology builds an easier way for us to interact with people in the business such as coworkers and clients. It also makes us able to measure the preference of our consumers better. The process is still happening. In the future, we will see another major differences in the workplace. To understand this situation, we need to see what’s affected. Not only the system, but the expectations from employees will also shift, creating a distinct work culture from the previous periods.
First thing that is different from the past is how employees look for a job. Today, it is much easier to find out about any company and the job they are offering. This condition also applies for the company — they can easily search for the background of candidates that have applied to their organisation. We already have a certain mental image and expectation even before getting the job.
At work, how we use communicate with each other is now more direct. In our personal life, the stream of information now flows very quickly and easily. This makes us expect the same thing happened in our professional environment. The relationship between all people involved should no longer be distant and everyone should have an equal right and platform to deliver their voice and let others know their thoughts and opinions. When this kind of openness and transparency is available, everyone in the company will have the same sense of belonging and will become more responsible.
The high of penetration of mobile gives its prominent impact to the habit of working. With people grow more and more attached to their smartphone, work can be done everywhere. The development of current mobile applications make remote work far more possible and effective than ever. It is very common to use productivity and collaboration tools as well. These tools help maintaining transparency and collaboration between coworkers and everyone is able to monitor the work progress.
We can see that in the forthcoming days, work will have less boundaries and become more transparent.
