What Leni Rivera can say in an interview about
The 2020s Workplace:
- The pandemic has shaken up many aspects of our lives, among them are the ways in which we’ve re-evaluated our lives, our priorities, and how we value ourselves and others. This invaluable, albeit unexpected, new insight has also impacted the things we’ve come to expect from our workplace.
- Earlier this year, very shortly after companies began announcing their plans for their workers to return to the office, the Great Resignation began. And it’s not a coincidence. After the year of working from home allowed us to recognize what is truly important to us, being faced with the reality that we would have to return to a workplace environment that didn’t share our values, drove us to simply leave.
- Today, working from home has officially shifted from being a trend to becoming the expected norm. And as the pandemic slowly starts to loosen its grip on society, so will working on trains, at airports, in coffee shops, and in hotel rooms. In this new age of such a “scattered” workplace, how then, do we define a Workplace Experience of the 2020s?
- The answer is simple. The shift in focus of a Workplace Experience is from where you work, to how you work, and instead of emphasizing a physical environment in corporate offices that enables you to be productive and engaged, the emphasis is now on making sure that you, the worker, have everything you need to be productive, engaged, and feel valued. Period. Regardless of where you work from.
- This is what I’m calling the Workplace of You. It redefines the workplace as one that is truly centered on people and recognizes that in order to be the best possible worker, people need to be their best possible selves. If that means that they need to be working from home right now, then the question becomes “what do you need to be more productive at home?” Perhaps that means new ergonomic furniture or better lighting, or perhaps that means flexible work hours, or virtual yoga and wellness classes. The workplace experience is now your workplace experience, empowering you to thrive in the way that works for you.
- After all, if there’s anything that the pandemic and the Great Resignation that followed have reinforced for us, it’s that the key to any company’s success is – and has always been – its people.
