The Fourth Industrial Revolution
Young talent brings fresh minds and fresh ideas to take advantage of technological advances. Employees entering the workforce for the first time bring enthusiasm and new energy to the business.
It is vital that businesses look to free up some capacity in their more experienced team members to train the younger generation and share intellectual capital before they come to the end of their careers and retire. Such long-term thinking and succession planning will assure the future of organisations in the property industry.
Our youth is so in tune with and attached to the application of new technologies. They just need the opportunity to be part of this “Fourth Industrial Revolution”, and we’ll all reap the benefits.
Generally, young people demonstrate a high degree of technical competency and will champion and stand out in the real estate industry.
Advanced technological application will cut down significantly on unnecessary costs incurred through manual and physical connections. Already, our focus on technology has not only benefited our employees, but it also has made our industry more accessible and helps our clients interact with us easily in innovative ways.
It’s much easier to adapt flexible young talent to suit our industry needs through great communication and mind-blowing ideas. Their enthusiasm is contagious, and our clients are looking to interact with such individuals.
Our organisations need to be flexible and agile to stay relevant and youthful anticipation of future needs offers further insight and problem-solving we can build on.
As the Greek philosopher, Heraclitus said, “The Only Constant in Life Is Change”. The future is bleak for property brands that are resistant to change.
