Working habits have changed forever. Recent technological advances, changing attitudes on management and flexible working are all allowing for a more positive vision of work in the future.
Science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) skills are in demand across the world as companies strive to meet the needs of our increasingly technological society. But what will the future of work look like for young people entering the workplace today who are keen to ignite successful careers?
We are seeing a global shift towards increased use of contingent workforces, shorter job tenures and rapidly growing societal preferences towards working remotely from home or hybrid working arrangements.
More professionals, especially in STEM, are willing to work within the freelance economy as they have more choice on projects they work on. Samuel Durand's Work in Progress documentary looked at this freelance economy in Europe and the changing societal shift towards a more fulfilling working life.
