Encouraged by the mainstreaming of remote schedules, individuals are demanding control over the how, where and why of their professional and educational lives. As a result, future workplaces must provide services that support employees holistically, both in and out of the ‘office’. Meanwhile, next-gen schools are empowering student-led learning from nursery through to university.

Constructing Future Careers

Modernised Qualifications

Evolved Youth Education

Debates around where and how we work have accelerated a massive restructuring of employment culture. Knowledge workers now demand fluid boundaries between personal and professional responsibilities, while Gen Zers are organising their careers into ‘experience chapters’. Holistic benefits are essential (see Enlightened Employers), but long-term success requires businesses to fundamentally rethink office engagement.

Constructing Future Careers

Debates around where and how we work have accelerated a massive restructuring of employment culture. Knowledge workers now demand fluid boundaries between personal and professional responsibilities, while Gen Zers are organising their careers into ‘experience chapters’. Holistic benefits are essential (see Enlightened Employers), but long-term success requires businesses to fundamentally rethink office engagement.

Modernised Qualifications

Young people are questioning the value of higher education: in January, only 51% of US Gen Zers wanted to attend university, compared with 71% in May 2020 (ECMC, 2022). Enter a new era for qualifications, where institutes make careers – not degrees – the end goal, and companies entice ambitious hires with hands-on skill-building apprenticeships.

Evolved Youth Education

With the professional landscape shifting rapidly, educational institutions must keep pace to prepare the youth for tomorrow’s work culture. Savvy schools are pairing student-led education with environments for active play, engaging with nature and inclusive learning (see Kid-Centric Spaces) – all linked to competencies needed for next-gen careers.
