Race Ready Workplace

5 ways work culture will change by 2030, Fast Company, February 4th 2019 Gwen Moran

Now And The Future

Recent years have seen an exceptional awareness and prioritization of workplace culture by both employers and employees. Culture is a company’s “personality,” including the behavioral expectations, practices, and other norms that influence how people interact both internally and on its behalf. Ignore it at your own risk.

At the same time, workplace culture is being influenced by disparate factors in significant ways. Demographic shifts, diversity and inclusion initiatives, talent shortages, automation, evolving technology, and an onslaught of data are converging to create both immediate and long-term changes.

Through the WI Lens

This article is billed as a predictive ‘catch’ on workplace change over the next decade but the aspects of inclusion, trust and investment are being actively discussed and actioned now. Agile, forward thinking companies are creating their own formulas for workplace success or plugging into frameworks such as the London Healthy Workplace Awards. Don’t imagine that success relies on financial investment – a culture of kindness and humility will ace a sleep pod every time.

Says the author: “If technology develops as expected and is used properly, inclusion, trust, and investment in employees will drive workplace culture in a decade. Employers will need to embrace transparency and build long-term relationships with employees to create cultures employees seek out and don’t want to leave.”

The five identified culture shifts;

1. Teams will be more diverse and inclusive than ever
2. Finding effective communicators is going to be tougher
3. The trust factor will be trickier
4. Workers will always be upskilling
5. Effective work spaces may make offices popular again

Do you agree? What are the changes you see in your own business?
