The Rackspace Technology Trends Viewpoint – The Future of Work

The view of what work can (and should) look like has changed. Are you ready to capitalize on it?

Over the last five years, we’ve been teetering at the threshold of a major shift in the way we approach work. Without a doubt, COVID-19 pushed us over that threshold and now we’ve emerged with a very different view of what work could look like.

So what does that mean for you? It’s clear that employees don’t need to be in the office in order to be productive. It’s also clear that today’s worker desires flexible work accommodations (both in terms of location and schedule). But as with anything in business, there are some factors you’ll need to take into consideration.

Download this whitepaper today and learn the three questions you need to ask.

  • Where: While many have been quick to announce the rise of hybrid workplace models as a way to get the best of both worlds, the idea of the hybrid workplace may be more comforting than it is realistic. We explore why employers must carefully consider the pros and cons as they move forward.
  • When: The pandemic has made it clear that it’s time to move away from looking at the clock. The future of work demands a shift in how employee performance is measured, with far less scrutiny on how employees spend their time on the clock and more on what they contribute.
  • (Any)where: The focus on working from “anywhere” gives employees not only the opportunity to work from home, but also for “home” to be wherever they want. But employers need to prepare for the logistics of this shift.
