Future of work is happening now
With new ways of working accelerated by the pandemic in 2020, there have been lots of question in society about the future of work. Lots of employee started questioning their relationship to work, purpose, how do they add value to the society, the balance between their private and professional time… Today in Belgium, we see an increase of people choosing to become freelancers as an answer to some of those questions. And at the same time, we see more and more companies adapting by offering hybrid work, full remote work, workation, homeworking, slashing opportunities, and this is partly possible thanks to technology changes/adaptations and adoptions that have been made during the pandemic.
