Sociopolitical Influence Effects on the Workplace Evolution in the Past, Present, & Future
by Persons, David, M.S., Charter Oak State College, 2020, 82; 28154568
Abstract (Summary)

The workplace is currently experiencing an evolution that stems from a series of sociopolitical influences. The trends and drivers leading this evolution are well-defined through this research. This study aims to determine how driving change factors can provide the insight that leaders need to manage imminent changes in organizations. Specifically, it investigates leadership, markets, and trends while addressing politics, generational factors, amenities, and the current multigenerational workplace.

A 13-question survey administered to industry professionals provided a basis for the research and insight into specific leadership challenges in the workplace. Responses were evaluated using a percentage model. The results showed the drivers and trends identified by the respondents.

Many factors such as diversity, equity, inclusion; home office; work-life, work, live and play; and modified work regimes were discovered as workplace evolution drivers. Strategic approaches were explored to address current challenges and to mitigate future ones. The conclusions and recommendations identify strategies leaders may employ that may lead to a more satisfied, engaged, and productive workforce as the workplace continues to evolve in the present and future.
