What are the most important shifts we’ll be seeing for young professionals all over the world?
Flexible hours: the most valuable employee benefit
Flexible work hours are no longer some exotic privilege for Google employees. It’s a general demand first instigated by Millennials and slowly redefining the “office life”. Actually, studies show that the number of work hours does not affect productivity (if anything, it enhances it).
Mental Health in the workplace: an open conversation
Job-induced anxiety is on the rise; especially in technology related jobs, where modern lifestyle has made it difficult to separate work from private life. This is starting to affect productivity and talent retention, so ignoring the subject is no longer an option.
The new professional skill you need to work on
Chronic procrastinators may want to review their skill set this year and work on their ability to focus. Your ability to stay focused and undistracted while you’re working might be the difference in finding, keeping and excelling at – your job.
