The job for life disappeared as we proceeded into a world where organisations constantly restructure to drive costs down and productivity up. “Work/life balance” blurred the lines. Now the rapid evolution of technology and adoption of social media is making another profound impact on workplace interaction.
Innovation is key – baby boomer or digital native! Your workplace relationships are becoming increasingly more collaborative leveraging new technologies plus social media. We are constantly accessible through mobile devices – we now must manage “work/life integration”.
This new collaborative, innovative employee is measured on outcomes and value-add. Our labour has evolved into a consumable - “People as a Service” which must remain relevant. How will you be relevant in the future? Use all the techniques and tools at your disposal to manage your own career and personal brand. Be the service that continues to innovate, be relevant and in demand!
