Job satisfaction depends on more than salary, bonuses and vacation. Today’s employees want to feel they are a part of something important. When employees feel engaged, productivity improves and companies benefit. New working models like knowmads, freelancers and social networkers are disruptive forces that target a work-life balance. Social and digital tools are also helping shape a labor force that is “working for a living instead of living to work.”
