Hello – how are you?

Blimey, modern life is full-on! Everything is changing so fast and it will get faster.

We have been reading lots of research about career success, employability, future skills and careers and the changing world of work so we can add even more value to our clients through these changing times.  This blog shares some of these insights.

  3. World is increasingly virtual
  4. Increasingly complex working and business environment
  5. Accelerated change

  8. Peace, quiet and reflection time under threat
  9. Growth in innovation and creativity and solutions from diverse networks
  10. Working for companies more flexible and looser
  11. Need to create a trusted brand – make it authentic, create reputation and manage it
