The year 2021 has ended and new habits have formed. What is certain is that there were many trends at work that stood out in the year just ended. And many of them will continue into 2022.
Therefore, and according to a reflection made by Microsoft, we have chosen three trends that will remain in this year that now begins with regard to work.
Most workers point to the desire to have freedom from remote work, but at the same time, they are the same ones who want more face-to-face collaboration after the pandemic. What is envisioned for the future is the freedom that each employee can have to choose the best work schedule for themselves. Having the flexibility to choose a work schedule that meets the life you lead.
On the site you will find a shared space management and a modality created with hybrid work in mind, the product Hybrid Office, which allows the company to choose a location (13 available locations) and the days it wants to occupy it.
According to the same document, in the last year there has been an increase in so-called “asynchronous collaboration”. Basically it is a way of working together, but it does not require people to be working at the same time. And why is that? Because of digital collaboration tools that allow this to happen. No employee is required to be present at a particular meeting to stay on top of the issues.
Investing in share capital
According to with Microsoft experts, the spontaneous, informal interactions that allow employees to connect and that underpin productivity and innovation are increasingly important. Therefore, investing more time in building a culture of empathy and active listening by those leading is imperative in 2022.
There are more ways in which the labor market can draw inspiration for an even more lasting relationship between employees and leaders, employees and companies. One of them is the renewed importance of employee well-being. It is not enough what was done the year before, it will not be enough what will be done in the labor market of 2022, but the important thing is not to stop looking for the best of solutions for the perfect working world.
