Innovation that's good for the world extends to our people, workplaces and employment models. More and more people are no longer satisfied sitting in a company office for 40 hours each week, working for someone else's bottom line, doing something they don’t enjoy. What does this mean for our happiness at work, and for companies wanting to attract the next generation of talent?
Many people, particularly millennials, are turning away from traditional employment in businesses and seeking more purpose-driven work. The motivators of this generation include the desire to have a positive impact on the world, environmental and social responsibility, and a demand for flexibility, autonomy and continual growth. New ways of working like freelancing, contracting or remote working offers the opportunity to achieve these things and live a fulfilling life which includes working, not a life driven by a job. Digital platforms can enable this change and open a wider conversation about the nature of work.
At the SYNC Collective we recognise that the 'work-life balance' is no longer a dichotomy, and want to empower people to create a meaningful work life for themselves. We believe in challenging what it means to be a 'professional' as we co-create the future of work.
Join us for a discussion of how these changing preferences are shaping workplaces present and future, and what this means for job-seekers, employees and employers alike in the age of purpose-driven work.
