I Want a Say in My Life

I Want a Say in My Life

by Michael Feeley September 5, 2023


ON LABOR DAY I Learned that 9% of office workers in New York City go to their offices 5 days a week. That’s a significant change.

These days, people have more choices than ever before in what kind of work they do and from where. The internet, AI, and the pandemic have helped create this shift. People now want more learning, development, and support. They want a say in their welfare – a voice in their life. They have more bargaining power with work.

Many people no longer go into a city and office building. They want flexibility. They work remotely from home. They produce well, often better in the comfort and security of their home, where they can also care for their families – children and maturing parents.

A greater variety of jobs are appearing now, as well as happiness, creativity, opportunity, skills, and training available.

There are more independent workers, consultants, and freelancers in what is now called an “Open Talent Economy”
a workforce where companies have access to a global talent pool, and workers can work from anywhere – with teams all over. They can secure long-term, well-paid projects lasting several years compared to “Gig Economy Workers.”

Core assumptions about how people enter the workforce, work together, and develop their potential are being challenged and dissolving.

Forced retirement is changing as mature workers are seen as valuable because they fit a specific culture. They are useful and highly skilled, and their life experience surpasses a degree and GPA.

Unfortunately, some people may be unable to choose their work. They might be stuck, burned out, bored, and afraid to look for better work because they may lose their jobs.

Please choose wisely the work you do.

Be smart about working where you’re valued and paid what you deserve.
