Work Culture Trends and Changes 2019

The work culture thought productive by companies has always been objective-oriented. Companies focused their workplace on finishing tasks and finishing them fast. However, without much-taking empathy for the workers into account, these types of cultures are failing. While slowly, the typical work cultures around the world begin to change, 2020 is an important year to start taking this change into consideration. This is due to the fact that by 2020, around 50% of the workforce will be comprised of millennials. And to help you cope with it, this article will aim to bring you the latest workplace trends and analyze what makes them work.

Diversity Initiatives/Inclusions

Diversity is an important aspect in a company, especially in this age where people are becoming more accepting towards each other and is furthering demands of equal rights. Be it from racial, religious or gender diversity, when more differing minds and variety are put into work, the range of creativity and problem solving expands.

A 2016 Harvard study found that a blind hiring method served to increase female acceptance by up to 46%, noting a clear gender bias in most companies. However, Gartner stated that over three-quarters of large enterprises have raised goals for their DI for 2020 onwards. The trends spreading include:

  • Blind hiring
  • Targeted diverse hiring
  • AI use for assessments

Employee Wellbeing

A quickly growing trend among companies is the consideration of employee wellbeing, be it physical, mental or even financial. This is due to the fact that employees feel burnouts and accumulated stress that has a tremendous impact on their productivity. Something that, despite being decreased over the years, recently 44% of employees still claim to be exhausted from their work and experience terrible burnouts.

So now, be it to help add in-conveniences among the office, flexible working time, or even remote working, companies are doing whatever they can to ensure employees’ sustainability.

On-site Clinics/Health Centers

On-site clinics are an investment that may not seem well worth it at first glance, however, it is starting to become a trending initiative to implement such facilities in the workplace.

With plenty over 85% of employers claiming on-site clinics have been a major success; helping with employees’ chronic conditions and drastically reducing lost work days. On-site clinics not only help with workers’ wellbeing but also serve as a rising perk to one-up the competition. Soon, with the speed of the rise of this trend, may even become something expected of a good company.

Maintaining the Knowledge Economy

As the years go by, workplaces are demanding more and more technical capabilities from their workers. This is becoming a dire situation as these expectations and requirements are pushed unto the millennials which have greater challenges upon getting ahead in life. A millennial is not guaranteed a job upon college education and have to work twice harder than when their grandparents are their age.

It is due to this fact that many companies are seeking out better ways to help support and train their junior employees to cope with work life and close the substantial skill gap. It is also through this line of thinking that more and more companies are hiring based on personality than by capability and experience.

Personality Driven Workforce

While work knowledge and skill sets are being shared amongst workers and taught by the companies, many employers are now looking more towards the personality of a recruit than their initial skill set. With trends to help ease training such as gamification, game-based learning, simulated learning, etc, it is becoming easier to help employees learn on the job. And by looking beyond their initial capabilities, companies have been able to pick out recruits that are more fitting personality-wise with the company’s core values and drive.

It is with this type of targeted hiring that a company can create a better synergy among the workplace and help push passion other important aspects further. And this is important because; while knowledge can be learned, the ideal work behavior cannot.
