“Slashers” - Future of Work?

With the social unrest and ongoing COVID-19 situation in Hong Kong, more companies have jump-started flexible workplace practices, an obvious one would be work-from-home arrangements. Flexible work culture is known to enhance employee’s productivity and wellbeing, offering a better work-life balance. Spending more time at home not only causes some to study online courses for upskilling, but also gives rise to the idea of becoming a slasher - a person who owns multiple career projects and demonstrates varied talents.


Parallel careers.. is that possible?

Hong Kong’s internet penetration in households have reached 94.1%, internet can be easily accessed for searching opportunities and performing the actual work. Sacrificing some leisure time is made easy without fixed working hours or location. So what is it that holds back these people of becoming a slasher? Perhaps it is the fear of not being able to multitask and perform well in the existing day job and this new job.


Multitasking or juggling jobs may seem scary at first, but in essence it is about focusing one task at a time. It requires good time management. Set the project milestones and timetable; let your mind focus at the present task.


Realise your personal growth

You could benefit financially from an increased income which is particularly important in this world of turmoil. But what about your personal growth? Here are just a few additional benefits that could fuel your passion:

1. Actualise potential

You can discover potential skills and hone them over time, helping you to stay competitive and safe from the increasingly automated roles. Experience greater satisfaction and integrate your new skills across jobs to achieve better outcomes.


2. Cultivate open-mindedness

New experiences help you to understand and accept differing views. Staying curious and open-minded are known to lead to happiness and improve our work effectiveness and relationships.

3. Land your dream job

You may start off with a passion project, but by expanding your social network around this passion, you may be one step closer to landing your dream job.
