It’s a new morning in the way people work. Today, the workday starts connected.  Why we connect is as important as how we connect. Home, social and work-life flow together. Flexibility and resiliency are the new normal. It’s a life in motion.

The new workplace is a seamless integration of technology, nature and design and is intended to inspire an innovative workforce.  The workplace is now part of a larger employee experience, where health, well-being and a culture of openness are central. Work is no longer about just “checking into” a job…it is about making a difference.

Now more than ever, teams are more diverse, collaborative, and global. Teams perform best when the members have strong alignment, clear roles and tools to advance communication.

Today’s leaders connect ideas while ensuring every person contributes. Leading with empathy allows each member’s style, experience and perspective to be considered. More voices for more value.

The fast pace of the digital economy generates disruptions almost daily. To lead more effectively, leaders are supported with new systems and tools. Support can come in many forms; from in-person mentors to digital coaches or technology systems that provide real-time feedback. These ensure leaders are best positioned to truly inspire the workforce.

With so much time online, time offline is essential. Time to reflect, to breathe and to recharge gives employees the clarity they need to thrive at work and to lead more fulfilling lives.

Organizations are becoming flatter and more responsive. Hierarchy has given way to networks, where workers are empowered to connect freely, to solve and to innovate.

Executives realize that attracting the right talent requires more than just good compensation. Being appreciated for a job well done, access to inspirational leaders and, most importantly, alignment of personal and corporate purpose are central to the employee experience.

At the end of the day, feeling inspired is fundamental for the new workforce. Inspired employees create inspired customers, who in turn, deliver inspired business results.

As work and life become more intertwined, people don’t just work, they work to feel fulfilled.

The largest generation of our time, the millennials, expect the office to offer the same digital experience they have at home and on their personal devices. And all ages have cause for concern as white-collar and creative jobs — long considered immune to technological displacement — are being disrupted by technology, like bots and artificial intelligence and the increasing pace of digitalization.

This is the new normal. Many companies are working aggressively to adapt to future trends. Is yours one of them?
