The Changing World Of Work

There is no doubt that the world of work is constantly changing. Of course, this will always happen at varying degrees at different times, as industries adapt to changing circumstances in the wider world. The events of the past twelve months, in particular, have shown us some of the most prevalent changes that are taking place in the world of work right now, while also speeding some of those changes up.

Knowing about these changes, and how to respond to them, is an important part of keeping a business running effectively. It’s also something that you need to know as an individual employee, to ensure that you are keeping up with things in general. So how exactly is the world of work changing right now?

The main thing we are seeing is a sharp increase in how many people work remotely. If you were to take a guess at how many Brits are working a traditional 9-5, you probably wouldn’t suppose it was as low as 6% – but that’s the figure we are seeing. Much of this is down to the fact that we have the technical means to make it happen – but it’s also a fact of desire, with three-quarters of British workers saying that remote working makes a job more attractive, and a third prefer flexible working to a pay rise.

As a business owner or as an employee, you need to be aware of what you should do to keep up with the changes. Take a look at the infographic below for more information.
