Changing Workers Changing Workplaces


The work industry is changing, an undeniable fact. Lower wage and lower skill jobs are constantly in demand, and the standards for higher wage jobs continue to rise. Workers today are no longer satisfied just taking over the family business. Remote work, for example, is highly desired by the modern worker. 

32% of knowledge workers have quit their jobs because they couldn’t work remotely. 61% of those same workers would gladly switch their job to work remotely. Workers at large are happier with flexible jobs that they work remotely, at least in part. What does this mean for the future though?

Change number one is flexible workspaces, remote work is now a prominent option desired by many workers. Another big change is the bounce back of smaller businesses. Remote work allows the overhead of business to be dropped and smaller more specialized businesses to flourish. The final big change is in culture, people want more cooperation, more wellness measures, and less hierarchy.

This is just a few ways that the changing workers of today are changing their workspaces. It’s important to mention that many of these changes are far more prominent in higher-wage industries. Although the effects do slowly move down culturally. This is the future of the work world.
