Why the future of work is flexible

Why the future of work is flexible | Free Agent Worklife | Scoop.it

If the future of work is flexible, some Australian businesses are already there. Kids at the office, working while travelling the globe and three hours face time – it’s all coming soon to a workplace near you. 

 

Imagine spending three hours at work a week. Far from being a dream, for the employees at Hive Legal in Melbourne this is reality. From the perspective of this office, the 9 to 5 model isn’t archaic. It’s dead.

“We love the work you do. How you do it is up to you,” Hive Legal managing director Jodie Baker tells her staff. The Hive Legal team of lawyers is only required to be in the office for two 90 minute meetings a week. At all other times they are free to work as they please, as long as the work gets done.

 

They are not alone. A 2013 survey conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers found that employees of all ages were willing to forgo pay rises and delay promotions in exchange for reduced working hours.

In an increasingly digital world, having people turn up to an office will become less necessary for some types of work. Many white-collar jobs, like consultants or writers, can work from somewhere other than the business premises and not lose touch with their workmates or clients.

4 Tips To Find Meaningful Work | Free Agent Worklife | Scoop.it
“There is no clear way ‘up’ anymore, it’s just a series of projects or jobs, one after another. You can move in any direction, the only question is how you’re devising your strategy of where to move and where you can ‘land,’ i.e., what you’re competitive for.”

The era of big work is over

The era of big work is over | Free Agent Worklife | Scoop.it
The economy is changing. It’s in the way we’re spending our money, the way we’re working, the gigs we’re taking, and the values by which we’re living our lives. People are choosing independence — it’s the new normal. Once they go independent, they’re choosing to stay independent — 9 out of 10 freelancers have told us they’d never go back to the 9-to-5.
