THE FUTURE WORKFORCE – SUPPORTING THE OBLIGATED WORKER

-

Presentation H4

Unum’s 2018 Future workforce report highlighted the rise of four workforce cultures, one of which is the obligated worker. Driven by the twin responsibilities of eldercare and childcare, and high financial demands, this workplace culture sees flexibility not as a luxury, but a necessity. With 77% of employees already saying that flexibility is important to them, the need for employers to embrace an increasingly ‘elastic’ workplace culture will gain ever more significance. This huddle will explore what motivates and influences the obligated worker, what can bring them to leave, and discuss how the right support can benefit both the business and the employee.
