As expectations on how we work and the workplace are changing how can employers attract the new generation workforce back to the workplace?
- Gen Z and millennials now make up 46% of the full-time U.S. workforce
- Gen X and Baby Boomers prioritize their desire for ethical leadership
- Diversity and inclusion are very important to younger generations
According to Gallup, Gen Z and millennials now make up nearly half (46%) of the full-time workforce in the U.S.
To develop the next generation of organizational leaders, every employer needs to be asking: What do our younger workers want from the workplace?
In 2018, Gallup asked Gen Z and millennials what they look for most in an employer — and their answers were surprisingly similar. In fact, these themes have only been amplified over the past year.
As employees get ready to return to their workplace offices must change to accommodate them in a post-pandemic environment.
We share this article which explores the design requirements of the post-pandemic workplace for the hybrid workforce.
COVID-19 created a paradigm shift for the future of work. We may never return to “normal,” but the crisis taught us to be more mindful of health and safety, and that the workforce can successfully adapt as we navigate an uncertain future. To get to a “new normal,” the traditional office must be redesigned. In a hybrid workforce world, it’s not only about the plexiglass. It’s about the person.
Just as the advent of tech revolutionized the workplace, so too will our work environments adapt to a world in which some people return to the conventional office, but many more will continue to work from remote locations. This will include co-located workers, whose face-to-face office interactions are supported by virtual communication, remote workers who conduct all activities through tech platforms, and hybrid workers whose productivity is supported by a mix of in-person contact and virtual collaboration.
