With remote working, digitisation and mindfulness on the increase, workplaces have changed a lot in the last few years, and they look set to evolve even more during 2018.
The average full-time employee spends around 37 hours per week working, so it’s important to do it in a nice atmosphere. It seems that these extra perks are becoming more and more important to professionals when choosing a job. Gone are the days when employees just slaved through the week, waiting for payday – now there usually has to be something more.
Going into 2018, the most important perk by a significant amount is flexible working, which almost half of all those polled by CV Library desired. This is something that remote working solutions like GoCloud effectively enable, allowing employers to give staff the capability without any productivity problems.
This has been one of those hidden truths for as long as we can remember. Everybody knows that an upbeat workforce will react positively to customers, encouraging sales and boosting profits. However, many large companies don’t want to investigate or admit the fact because doing so empowers the workforce more than upper management will accept.
It’s often useful to take a different approach, considering customers and employees so that the business benefits everybody inside and out, rather than just a few people at the top of the pecking order. This can make the business as a whole much more successful.
With regularly disrupted public transport, overcrowded roads and a nice, cosy home behind them, it’s unsurprising that more and more professionals choose working remotely over commuting.
In a recent poll, a greater proportion of respondents said they were more productive working from home compared to those working at the office, with the majority opting for equally productive in both settings. This could never have been the case twenty or even ten years ago and demonstrates the rate of change in workplace norms. This is something that GoCloud can once again help end users offer to their workforce.
“Profits? What profits?” So goes the old adage during economic bad times. But the cliché can also be used as a sign of positivity in quite a different area, as companies around the world become less focused on their balance sheets and pay more attention to the finances and psyches of those who work for them.
Because workplace morale levels affect customer behaviour for the better or worse, the time seems right to build up positivity. More organisations are starting classes, groups and programmes to help their employees excel in areas not usually covered in the workplace. With people spending more time on average at work than at any time in the past few decades, this seems sensible and should create another rung on the ladder to success for many of the companies that implement it.
