Digital Workplaces

85% of employees currently working from home in the UK want a hybrid approach of both home and office working in future. The popularity of the trend is growing, and people are now looking at those companies that provide such freedom.

A good example of it can be Airbnb. Recently, the company released the most flexible working scheme called Live and work anywhere.’ It allows its employees to work from any place they wish with no changes to their compensation rate. Surprisingly, when the news went live, almost 1 million users across the globe visited Airbnb’s ‘Career’ page in hopes of finding a suitable position for themselves.

AI-generated Content

With automation, companies can predict trends and drill into data insights in a matter of seconds. Currently, it might not be widespread throughout all industries, however, in the next eight years, AI will be a part of our daily lives. Simply because it helps to speed up tedious tasks and also provides eye-opening results.

The Metaverse

Although this trend is only evolving, big companies have already started to work in this direction. The first step is a creation of a digital economy, where users can create, buy, and sell goods. Therefore, in a nutshell, Metaverse is virtual reality that combines aspects of the digital and physical worlds. What does it mean to us? Probably, in the next few years, various companies will focus on building the infrastructure to create better virtual worlds that more closely mimic our physical life. No one is sure where this trend is going, but we will surely see it in the next 15 years!
