How do you envision your future of work? Will the workplace change due to digital technology and your need for great work-life integration? Will the notion of full-time and secure employment be squashed? Will you lose your job to a robot? Will your employer deploy a style of self-management? Will your next boss be 15 years younger than you?
In a business environment where new digital technologies are reshaping work like we’ve never seen before; where work continually “follows the sun,” and where workplaces are becoming dominated by a game-changing generation of millennial workers, we are struggling to understand how these will impact the future of work and it’s prompting us to rethink and reinvent the workplace, if not for others, at least for ourselves.
Rather than fight the transforming world of work, individuals are looking for ways to future proof their career and their employer’s relevance, and adapt to it as quickly and effectively as possible.
