Does your career framework fit the new shape of work?

 

As businesses grapple with change and uncertainty, an added complexity is the challenge to develop an employee value proposition that resonates across five generations; men and women; white- and bluecollar employees; and employees working at the office, on the sales (or factory) floor or from home. 

It’s easier for employees in many companies to look for new career opportunities outside the organization than within it, and this needs to change. Executives are also focused on achieving organizational growth by transformation and redesign, which has implications for the future of jobs. Recent Mercer research revealed that 50% of companies globally plan to change their job evaluation methods in the year ahead in response to the changing workplace.
