As we approach the end of the year, here are significant trends witnessed in the workplace. From an individual perspective, understanding these trends will give you an advantage. From an employer perspective, it will make for more informed business decisions.
Collaboration. With social networks, crowdfunding and crowdsourcing becoming the norm, there is a renewed emphasis and enthusiasm for collaboration in the workplace. Collaboration gains importance as companies encourage connected networks to share ideas and solve problems. This is evidenced in workplace designs which decrease worker isolation by providing more open layouts with shared spaces.
