What Your AWS Team will Look Like in 2022 and Beyond
The work environment has been disrupted for good in the last two years. The effects of a remote workforce have accelerated the pace at which change is occurring in the workplace.
What’s the future for your tech team? How can we adjust to the new normal now that social distancing restrictions are lifted? It may be safe to go back to work, but the desire for flexible working isn’t going away.
Employers will need to adapt to these changing attitudes and landscapes to retain and recruit top talent. While tech was already ahead of the curve in home working, it has become an essential part of the employee package.
Employers can keep their competitive edge by staying on top of developments and trends in AWS.
The future is remote and hybrid work. According to the Jefferson Frank Careers and Hiring Guide AWS Edition, 85% said that company benefits were more important than salary when deciding whether they will accept a job. It’s safe to say that your hybrid or remote working policy will play a significant role in this.

This isn’t just about remote work. It’s about helping employees achieve a better work-life balance. This could be the ability to manage their work hours, work schedules, or being able to seamlessly combine home and work obligations.
