How will the "lockdown generation" change our world?
Although the pandemic lasts only a year, most specialists today claim that it will permanently change our world. It is not only about health and medical issues, but mainly the perception of the world, especially by the young generations entering the labor market. The "lockdown generation" or "Covid-19 generation" that has been hit the hardest by the pandemic will prevent both the labor market and the economy from looking the way we are used to. Of course, all of this will be done with and through new technologies.
Such conclusions can be drawn after analyzing the report "Year of critical changes" prepared by the Association of Business Service Leaders (ABSL) in cooperation with Strategic Partners The Adecco Group and Colliers. Managers, economists and experts in the field of, inter alia, psychology and sociology break down into prime factors any changes caused by the coronavirus pandemic, and its impact on the psyche and behavior of young employees. The report is an attempt to answer the question of how this impact will translate into life after the pandemic, how much will it affect individual aspects of work and change the economy.
Responsibility for others
“According to a study by Delloitte, the pandemic has created a sense of responsibility for others among millennials and Gen Z, which from a business perspective can have a positive effect. In the long term, the “lockdown generation” may feel more responsible for the organization and its customers than older employees. The pandemic has also strengthened young people's need to support small and local businesses, 'reads the Report.
New work models
The current and probable future crises require both employees and employers to be very flexible in all areas of life and work. According to experts, this forces the creation of a new work ecosystem, which: "must move towards a network of connected places - adapted to the needs of individual and team work - including a traditional office, home and alternative spaces (public places such as libraries, cafes, etc., working spaces or other places to work available in the on-demand formula) ”.
The labor market after Covid 19
The pandemic accelerated the processes of digital transformation of the global economy. The result is an accelerated digitization course that both organizations and employees must undergo. According to the authors of the Report, the nearest future will be upskilling, i.e. raising qualifications, and reskilling, i.e. acquiring new competences. Only in this way will companies and organizations be able to adapt to the digital transformation. "Almost 40% of the skills that employees have today and are applicable in the current market conditions will become useless in the next three years," reads the ABSL Report.
