Shifting Perspectives About the Modern Workplace

 

Once upon a time there was this concept called the “9-5” job in which people woke up at the same time every morning, got in their cars to commute to work, and stayed in a building all day – except for that 1 hour when they went out for lunch.

As time went on and technological advances became part of modern-day reality, how people work and where they work began to change. Communication between people transformed the way they did business, and businesses started to realize that it could be more cost-effective for their employees to work remotely. They no longer have to keep up with high overhead or build big buildings for their business.

Now we are in a time where companies are not hiring based on geography. Instead of searching locally for a new employee or asking someone to relocate, companies are just focusing on finding just the right person for the job and allowing them to work from home. Some companies are even ditching the traditional workplace to set up shop in coworking facilities hoping to spark creativity, collaboration, and innovation.

A shift is brewing in the minds of business people around the world. They’re realizing that the way one person works is different from how other people may work. Putting someone in a cubicle for eight hours a day just may not be the best way to inspire productivity. Seeing and talking to the same people everyday may not be the best way to get ideas on how the business can improve. These preconceived notions of what makes a motivated and productive employee are changing…for the better.
