Tips & advice to help you improve your performance
According to a white paper launched jointly by commercial real estate services and investment firm CBRE and Genesis, a leading real estate innovator, we are facing a revolution in the workplace.
The paper—Fast Forward 2030: The Future of Work and the Workplace—is based on interviews with experts, business leaders and people from Asia Pacific, Europe and North America, and covers a broad range of topics including how workplaces will change and how employees themselves are changing.
The biggest determinant of whether change will be correctly and successfully implemented is effective teamwork.
Managers have to understand that although they may decide on a specific change, they must involve their employees in the entire process, as they will be the actual people to implement the tasks.
Change can bring about a stressful and difficult time for members of any organisation.
However, the situation can be greatly exacerbated if employees feel like they are being kept in the dark about matters affecting them.
Not preparing for change at the workplace is similar to going out in the rain without an umbrella.
You know you will be wet and uncomfortable, and not prepping for the upcoming changes in weather is not smart.
Imagine coming to work one day to find that you have been transitioned to work in an entirely new team, have to learn a completely different system to work on or answer to a new boss.
This would be incredibly nerve wracking and would likely prevent you from fully accepting the changes and trying your best to get used to them.
