'CEO' now less sought after title than 'entrepreneur'

   May 30, 2:50 pm

Washington, May 30 (ANI): It seems that people no more aspire to be corporate executives.

Of the 1,075 people responding to Intelligent Office's Work IQ survey, not a single one expressed any desire of spending his or her career as an office leader.

Nearly 65 percent said that they preferred to be an entrepreneur or independent worker instead.

Tom Camplese, chief operating officer of Intelligent Office, said that the study points to an evolution driven by the desire for mobility and flexibility .

"We believe there is a paradigm shift happening in our culture as it relates to work style," Live Science quoted Camplese as saying.

People are no longer looking for a traditional workday.

More than 60 percent of those surveyed wanted more-flexible work hours than the customary 9 to 5.

Additionally, the research found that people overwhelmingly aspire to have more mobility in their daily life rather than be tied to working eight hours in an office.

More than 65 percent are looking for a job where they have a laptop computer or tablet that affords them the freedom to work anywhere they choose.

The survey participants were asked about four different work styles: corporate executive, professional, entrepreneur and independent. (ANI)
