Millennials and Gen Z’ers are entering the work force in droves and they are changing the face of the culture of work. Many have a strong desire to be recognized for all of their talents and interests rather than one job title or the college they attended. A single title does not define them, they contend, and they have adopted work habits that reflect this. Read about Why polywork is the New Way to Achieve Personal Success.
Many of these young workers have decided to shed a single work title and have opted for several jobs to keep themselves employed. These jobs are often part time and many can be done almost in tandem. The polywork trend can be seen in many areas of work. I’ll bet you know someone who may be an engineer by day and a musician by night or weekend. Throw in a few hours a week doing promotions and social media shout outs and you have a polyworker. These jobs do not all require a 9 to 5 presence but they can help the worker feel enriched, productive and creative. Polyworkers contend that a single label can be arbitrary and limiting. I know that many jobs require good writing skills and a person who has a passion for that may be just the creative part time worker you need and it fulfills their desire to write creatively. Employers should be open minded to part timers who bring them certain talents on an as needed basis as well.

Coworking Office Space and Polyworkers
Individuals who pursue polywork need a place to work that allows them the freedom to achieve success by doing many different jobs. A Coworking space is ideal for this. A worker can devote a number of hours each day to each of their interests/jobs and never have to waste time traveling from one office to another or to try to do it from home after a regular 40 hour a week job. A coworking office offers workers lots of support from other like-minded individuals and has all the office and business support that is required to do the job. Coworking offices that offer flexible leasing and month to moth terms can be just the thing to help a polyworker to be successful. 75% of young professionals now polywork or want to and many feel that they can be more successful with their duties and passions as activists, speakers or mentors to name just a few chosen interests.
