In today’s world, where managers and workers are globally connected and maintain communication with each other at all times, workplace trends have changed drastically. As government regulations are putting greater emphasis on employee welfare and competition is squeezing margins, executives are exploring less expensive and viable methods to get work down within deadlines. In a connected world, employers are competing on a global scale for skilled employees and retaining them through incentive measures that were unheard of a few decades ago. 

While internet and smart mobiles have made a major impact on the way global companies carry out their operations, employees are also more willing to travel to move ahead on the corporate ladder.

Here are a few emerging workplace trends that are likely to continue for a few more years before the next technical revolution hits the workplace.

Career growth impacted by economy

In a global economy, wars and financial upheavals in different parts of the world have an impact on all other nations that are connected to each other. This was harshly evident during the 2008 financial crisis which had a cascading effect on economies of most nations though in a delayed manner. In today’s economy, career growth is no longer predictable as even a top executive can face stagnation if the organization is hit by economic crisis.

Mobile workforce

Today 30 percent of the global workforce is mobile or in other words do not use a physical office and work on piecemeal projects from multiple locations. These workers are not bound be office regulations and work at their own pace within certain guidelines. This mobile workforce is connected to the employer by internet based applications and deliver work within time bound schedules. The best part about this practice is that workers are given assignments based on performance and will lose further assignments if they do not perform so both employer and employee can make their experienced choices.

Gender pay gap reduces as freelancing becomes the norm

The concept of full time workers is reducing rapidly in most sectors except manufacturing and service industry as people have to be physically present to carry out those operations. Professionals are working from home and visit traditional offices occasionally to explain essential projects or make presentations before clients. These freelancers are also reducing the remuneration gender gap as employers have standard pay slabs for different projects that are paid out irrespective of an individual’s gender.
