As one of eight segment features of the ITN Business film, Mark sits down with Duncan Golestani (freelance presenter at BBC World News & ITV, Journalism trainer for ITV News), to talk about the importance of shaping a connected and future-facing employment environment and our role at Matrix in facilitating that.

Mark touches on the importance of shaping a connected and future facing employment environment, touching on ‘Squiggly’ careers – a concept that is gaining fast traction across the globe, from the fantastic Helen Tupper and Sarah Ellis, and why this new style of career path is so important for organisations to nurture for the future workforce. His insights highlight the necessity of integrating innovative technologies and fostering connectivity within organisations to stay competitive.

Matrix on Connectivity and Technology Integration

Mark discusses the necessity of integrating innovative technologies and ensuring seamless connectivity within organisations. He argues that businesses must embrace digital change to stay relevant and competitive. This includes equipping employees with the necessary tools and skills to adapt to new technological advancements. By fostering a culture of continuous learning and innovation, organisations can harness the full potential of technology to drive productivity and efficiency.

Employee Engagement and Culture

A key part of Mark’s vision is the importance of employee engagement and cultivating a positive, inclusive culture. He emphasises that creating an environment where employees feel valued and motivated is essential for an organisation to be successful – which starts with reframing how we look at who works, when they work and how they work. By looking at these three questions, HR professionals can start to build a future facing foundation for developing policies and practices that truly promote employee well-being and workforce engagement. By prioritising a supportive and inclusive culture, businesses can enhance employee satisfaction and retention, leading to better overall performance.

Strategic Leadership 

Advocating for strategic leadership that is adaptable and progressive, Mark highlights the need for leaders to steer their organisations through this period of change across the workplace ecosystem. Referring to the rapid evolution of work-life structures, Marks advice to leaders is to not bury their heads in the sand when it comes to the changes required in the workplace for our current and future talent to thrive. He adds how bringing HR into the boardroom and empowering the function to exist as part of the key decision making structure of an organisation is just one of the impactful ways that effective leaders can strengthen their future of work strategy.  

The Importance of Adaptation and Innovation 

Mark’s core message is clear: people are at the heart of all innovation, and that’s especially true as we navigate the future of work. Understanding and preparing for the future of work is crucial for both businesses and individuals. Our success depends on ensuring that our businesses can adapt to the changing needs of our people, empowering them to be their best in any role and at any stage of life.
