Is This A Job Revolution?

Hyper work is a new term that is coming out recently due to the changes took place during the recent years when workers recognized the importance of self-care, mental health, and enjoying life. Some workers are back to the offices and do not mind to spend all the working hours at the office away from the home. Meanwhile, the other half of the workers are looking for a balanced life style, where they would have the freedom to work remotely (whatever that remotely means to them). Some of these workers are willing to quit their jobs even if they are making 6 figures salary. They just prefer to have a better mental health, and enjoy life more with less stress.

All these changes,  in addition to the explosion of the technology (including social media platforms) that created other income streams; require a new working environment and protocol for working, and seek different setting for different types of jobs.

I believe we need to look at the type of the job, keep improving the work environment including the schedule flexibility, the skills of the workers and consider to adapt a completely new approach to the carrier and job market.

Is this period about the job revolution? Could be. However, we do need more research, more experts and more leaders who care about evolving both human beings and economic system.
