2021, Innovation and the workforce

2021 is well under way with optimism for local and global businesses regardless of the lingers of COVID-19 still in the air. Speaking of 2021, I have some great news if you are a coworking member, odds are that you will thrive in 2021 and beyond with shared working space at the center of the changes of COVID-19, according to Coworker.

During the COVID-19 crisis, one area that saw tremendous growth was digitization, meaning everything from online customer service to remote working to supply-chain reinvention to the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to improve operations, and healthcare also changed substantially according to Mckinsey and company

The McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) estimates that more than 20 percent of the global workforce (most of them in high-skilled jobs in sectors such as finance, insurance, and IT) could work the majority of its time away from the office and be just as effective, It’s happening not just because of the COVID-19, but this also partly because of the advances in automation and digitizations”.

Running a coworking space/innovation hub, we’ve noticed a few qualities that tend to define the typical member of this bubble: driven, flexible, entrepreneurial (even when not an entrepreneur per se), innovative, connected, resourceful and resilient according to coworker.
