Abstract

Essay: We live in a society that is constantly changing and evolving based on the influence of the environment and technological progress. Living in a capitalist society, companies pay more and more attention to profit and try to find the ultimate operating system to work with the most efficient capabilities. The use of technology and robots in certain departments of the company is also a result because they replace part of the labor force. In addition, geography no longer works, and the new challenge is to find and retain talent, which makes emotional intelligence more and more important. The recent Covid-19 pandemic has caused most companies to adjust their operating government local restrictions to protect their employees from potential infections. Therefore, when possible, most employees will enter the home office and complete their work at home. Not only their work, but also meetings and business trips are conducted through different platforms. The system seems to work relatively well and can be seen as a test of what we may need to look forward to in the future. By providing online access to company software and platforms on laptops at home, companies are introducing a more effective way of working. Access from anywhere. It shows that employees spend less energy and time on typical office practices, which makes 87% of employees believe that they are more efficient in their home workspace. This not only provides more flexibility for the company, but also more flexibility for the employees themselves. The company needs a smaller infrastructure because the desk can be used by multiple people at the same time when entering at different times. This not only saves space and money, but as the impact on the environment decreases, it also has a positive impact on the environment. At home, employees can allocate their work more flexibly because the panoramic view is omitted. However, working from home requires a lot of self-discipline, because employees must motivate themselves to complete the work without supervision, which certainly does not apply to all occupations. Business trips require a lot of time and energy, and the cost is high for the company to send employees around the world to provide funds. The Covid-19 pandemic has imposed restrictions and travel bans on these generally common trips, and companies conduct these meetings online via video chat. In terms of time consumption and environmental impact, foreign conferences may only continue when absolutely necessary, because society has realized that it also operates in this way. In order for the company to accept this new flexibility, the company must be thorough when looking for new candidates to fill vacant positions. Not long ago, employees’ IQ and detectable skills were the most important factors in employment. However, at present, society and companies are gradually realizing the importance of emotional intelligence for job success and corporate success. Emotional intelligence is based on the ability of employees to understand, manage, recognize, and reason about emotions (Cherry, 2020), and use this understanding to solve problems, communicate with others, and make decisions. It also plays a role in how employees manage conflict and stress and their overall performance at work. Therefore, when looking for new potential employees, the factors that determine whether a person is suitable will change, because emotional intelligence will become an increasingly important selection factor. Because there is more flexibility, there will be more responsibilities and the ability of employees to self-regulate. Not only in the home, flexibility increases, but also in the physical work space. This trend tends towards lean companies with a flat hierarchical structure, allowing employees to grow as employees and individuals. With more emphasis on creativity, society is shifting from large offices with cubicles to open spaces with large tables and innovative designs, and freedom as a motivating factor. A friendly and calm atmosphere promotes emotional intelligence. The boring and gray office is a thing of the past, and millennials are thriving for experiencing all aspects of life in a valuable way. Finally, in manufacturing, the workspace will feel the impact of automated processes and robot participation. Almost everything that used to require manual labor can now be completed with the help of robots, which helps companies run at full capacity and generate more output. On the downside, this development will leave millions of people unemployed, because low-skilled and entry-level jobs are a thing of the past. However, the proportion of societies choosing academic pathways is increasing every year, which leads to more potential candidates every year. When making changes within the company, some company-specific recommendations should be considered. For the first time in history, four generations of people work side by side, all of whom have different experiences and backgrounds. Not only age, gender and race are now treated equally, which will become the driving force for a fully inclusive work environment. Finally, as society is now aware of the personality differences of different people, such as extroverted and introverted personalities, it is necessary to ensure that there is a working space that accepts both. This is where EQ is more important than ever. Read Less
