A call for shorter workweeks and condensed hours has been gaining traction around the globe, with companies and entire governments alike already exploring this alternative.
It’s necessary to shake up the structure of when we work. The 9-to-5, 40-hour workweek that emerged during the Industrial Revolution – the last time work changed so dramatically – is no longer sustainable due to the increasing pace of work necessitated by video conferencing software and continued online presence.
Job personalisation could be the key to worker satisfaction – and retention – this year. In 2022, we will see employers catering more to employees’ needs and desires in order to engage their current workers and attract top performers from other firms. It’s not only good business sense – flexibility and accommodation is becoming a perk workers expect from their employers. This imbalance in worker demand and supply means employees and job seekers have elevated power to ask for more.
Another important personalisation could be prioritising a worker’s individual mental health. After all, amid burnout, more workers are saying enough is enough, and quitting their jobs ([or at least thinking about quitting). Even bastions of hustle culture such as Wall Street are getting in on the act and introducing sabbaticals.
Even as rent stays sky-high in practically deserted city centres, companies still want workers utilising those buildings, especially as hybrid work will likely dominate 2022. It’s impossible to shrink the office footprint even after all the ways our working lives have been destabilised the past two years.
Despite all our best predictions, we don’t know what we don’t know.
Many analysts were predicting a return-to-office movement by summer 2021, as vaccines became more widely available – but that target continued to move. Variants like delta protracted public health concerns and remote work didn’t end. Zoom meetings remained the daily standard for millions of workers around the globe.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
