Welcome back to the Business English Skills 360 podcast for today’s lesson on keeping your career on track.
Today’s workplace looks pretty different from the one your parents toiled away in. Walk into an average office and you’ll immediately be struck by the fact that it only seems half full. Remote work – in one form or another – has become the norm. And the people themselves may look different. The baby boomers are retiring, and younger generations are entering the workforce, often with different values and expectations.
So now might be a good time to think about how your expectations have changed. How has your approach to your work and career evolved? Do you see yourself in a position to benefit from the current situation?
With the Great Resignation causing staffing shortages the world over, this is a great time to take stock of your career.

Competition for talent is stiff, and companies around the world are working hard to retain what they have.Members: Lesson Module | Quiz & Vocab | PDF Transcript
