New Work – The digitalized and flexible workplace

New Work

The world is in constant flux. The way we live is constantly changing due to the ever advancing globalization and digitalization. But not only how we live is changing, but also the way we work has changed drastically in the last decade. Especially due to the Corona pandemic, companies were forced to position New Work principles in their daily work routine.

New Work – What is that?

The New Work concept, developed by philosopher Frithjof Bergmann, combines professional development and personal growth. Flexible approaches are taken that give employees decision-making options, flexibility in their daily work and opportunities to develop their personalities. Concepts such as home offices, coworking spaces and flextime allow employees to organize their lives as flexibly as possible.

For many companies, the New Work aspect means a completely new mindset. Old structures are broken and completely rebuilt. Consequently, this is also connected with a change for employees.

Since 2019, it is impossible to imagine German companies without the home office. The workplace is becoming more flexible, mobile and ubiquitous. The smartphone has become one of the most important work tools. According to Statista, more than 70% of German employees are in favor of the possibility of home office – a development that you should not miss.
