Why wait for inspiration to strike when you can ignite the spark?

Today, organizations must find new ways to inspire their employees if they are to produce topline results tomorrow.

EY helps companies create that inspiration.

Introducing Future Work Now

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.

New technology is driving fundamental changes in how we work, where we work, who does the work and what work they do.

So it’s no surprise that the workforce of today looks very different to that of yesteryear. And we can expect tomorrow’s workforce — its demographic spread and its range of backgrounds, habits, demands and expectations — to be likewise very different.

Similarly, the business environment is changing rapidly, with continual disruption becoming the norm across many sectors. This means organizations need a more flexible, more digitally literate and more innovative workforce than ever before.

And they need managers with the new skills and behaviors it takes to lead and inspire more diverse — and often more greatly dispersed — teams in a digital age.

To help organizations get the right people with the right skills doing the right work in the right environment, and to make sure teams are inspired to innovate, EY has developed Future Work Now (FWN), a transformational program built around an interconnected set of seven levers.
