Some time ago, we have dealt with the modern workplace and the future of work. The workplace has a great impact on the productivity, creativity and well-being of employees. But what do people feel as important in their workplace? How do they imagine their perfect workstation and what should not be missing under any circumstances?

Jobsharing – how technology supports the working model

Working Models of the Future and New Work are the new buzzwords par excellence and cannot be overlooked in HR media. And since it is known that the younger generations have changed views on the work-life balance, flexible working-time models are on everyone’s lips and virtually unimaginable. While home office opportunities and sabbaticals are common to many companies, there is a model that is not so often spoken about – although it is actually quite obvious: jobsharing.

Our first article of our series on jobsharing was about what jobsharing is, for whom the model is suitable and which advantages and disadvantages the division of a workplace can offer.… Continue

Jobsharing – when the career doesn’t suffer despite flexibility

Working Models of the Future and New Work are the new buzzwords par excellence and cannot be overlooked in HR media.

Work Wherever You Want To! New Work and The Reinvented Space.

In our last blog article, we discussed the term “new work” in general. We have seen that new work reunites many different phenomena which determine the work of the future. The workplace is one of them. In the workplace of the future, spaces are being reinvented, and within this context, the need for workers to actually work inside the company’s walls is questioned.

Individual workplaces belong to the past. Work zones are currently trending. Innovative companies focus increasingly on a wide range of working environments that adapt to the work activities of the employees. In addition to workspaces which are suitable for teamwork and cross-departmental encounters, there is a need for quiet retreats if one needs to concentrate.… Continue

New work – the work of the future

Globalization, work migration and technologisation – topics which substantially shape todays job market and raise significant questions: How does tomorrow’s job market look like? Where and, in particular, when will we work? How will we communicate? And what hierarchies will be in place? How much importance will work play in a person’s life, and above all, why and what do we work for?
