Society is constantly evolving into the next stage and the workplace must keep up with the ever-changing ways to maintain success and diversity in all aspects. Get ready to embrace these new approaches or you may be left standing in the dirt. Society can only progress as fast as its slowest member.

Technology

Technology is perhaps the most influential trend that is creating a new and innovative movement in culture, which is being brought into the workplace productivity. Technology was once considered a burden with very little foresight as to the impact it would have. It is now a huge benefit to companies allowing its leaders and employees to stay in communication any time, anywhere. With such a dramatic increase in collaboration there is much more flexibility and teamwork is taken to a new level without the feeling of being tied down to a desk.

Health

Although physical fitness should always be a priority to people, it sometimes takes a back seat to work. In the past decade, there has been an increase in companies incorporating staying healthy and fit into everyday work life. From having standing desks to company participation events at 5K’s, health has become a priority and that trend is definitely here to stay. Healthy employees lead to better attention spans and less sick time.

Flexible Job

Flexibility is becoming more important to workers than compensation. Whether this trend is here to stay or not, it’s definitely made companies open their eyes in the recruitment process. Workers want more flexibility but are not willing to do what it takes to keep up with their daily work. In the years to come, employers will have to focus on compensation to keep the seasoned employees happy while focusing on flexibility for potential employees coming into play. This is putting corporations between a rock and hard place when it comes to new qualified workers and loyal employees who already know the work.

Trends typically last for a substantial amount of time while fads die out. Follow the trends that will put you ahead of the game and maximize your potential or start your own trend to surpass them all. Are you a trendsetter?
