The Four Worlds of Work

the competing forces shaping 2030

Open your Facebook newsfeed and there is no escaping the heartfelt calls to ‘say no to single-use plastics’, tear jerking ‘save the orangutan’ petitions, awe-inspiring videos of cities of the future and mouthwatering meat-free Monday recipes. You’d be hard pressed to deny that, as a society, we yearn for a more sustainable lifestyle and a cleaner, kinder world. Partially born out of necessity, and partially out of idealism, concepts such as co-housing, zero-waste economy and vertical farming are becoming household terms rather than abstract notions exclusively reserved for new age hippies and idealistic millennials. But is a brand new world truly taking shape? Are we really going to make lasting changes, or will ‘corporate’ win out? And what about this Industry 4.0 stuff? PwC decided to investigate the competing forces that are shaping our world today for a snapshot view of our workforce of the future and arrived at four potential new worlds of work. We bring you an abridged version of the report.

Hotel Highlights

the movings and shakings of the hotel industry

2016 was without doubt a difficult year for the hotel industry, with Brussels most definitely taking the biggest knock and occupancy rates plummeting by more than 20%. This was largely attributed to terrorist actions and in a smaller part due to the rise of the likes of homestay networks such as AirBnB. Not being one to dwell on the past, ReLocate looks toward a bright and shiny  second half of 2017 which by all accounts will be an upturn kind of year for the hotel industry.  We bring you all the wonderful concepts of the future of hotels, how the hotel industry is going to reshape itself to keep up with the competition, and what we can expect in the year to come.

The Millennial Workplace

degree of importance to millennials

In most markets, work-life balance comes before career progression when evaluating job opportunities. Figure: relative degree of importance (excluding salary).

With millennials generally getting a bad rap and preconceptions abounding on how the “entitled generation” views both the workplace and the world at large, it would be easy to dismiss them offhand as serious prospects for employment.  Deloitte’s 2016 Millennial Survey tells us that 44% of millennials already have one foot out of the door and are planning on leaving their organisation in the next two years: a statistic that will surely have most employers close to tears with frustration. But what does being a millennial in the workplace actually mean?  What is it that we are doing so very differently than our parents before us that is making us the topic of the decade?

The Tech Shift

the changing face of relocation

changing face of relocation

Whatever the cause, there is a palpable shift in the nature of how we do business.  Blame it on the millennials if you wish, but when even our 98-year old grandfather can Skype us to his heart’s content, we have to wonder: is this dependence on technology exclusive to this generation or merely a sign of changing times? We asked several relocators about their experiences and how they are coping with the changing face of business.

The Future of Talent Mobility

Trends and Best Practices Based on Cross-Industry Survey Research
