The world of work is changing at a rapid pace, demanding people to continually learn new skills to stay relevant in the future of work. According to a new report on workforce re-skilling by the World Economic Forum, one in four adults reported a mismatch between the skills they have and the skills they need for their current job. Lewis and Aldo give us an insight on how to reshape your career and the skills needed for the future.
The future is about breaking down stigma and overcoming stereotypes that stifle the creation of equality-driven organisational cultures. It is about developing an environment that works for all and requires the belief that change is not only possible but necessary. Lewis, Aldo and guest Jason Smith, Senior Consultant at ASLAN Training and Development, share their insights on what could we do in order to reshape what's important in company cultures, breaking the stigma barriers and mindset in order to thrive in a disruptive future workplace.
One mistake people often make is chasing career opportunities based on the company’s brand. But a company is a group of people, and It’s the people that will determine your experience, learning and enjoyment. With the right people you can do incredible things, with the wrong people you can quickly hate going to work. The perks of free food, unlimited holidays and roof top yoga are nice, but if the people and culture aren't right for you, it won't be much fun.
The future of work is one of the most interesting topics of the next few years. It will be fascinating to see how many new opportunities and jobs are created.
