Future of work

What does good work look like in the future- and how can we get there?

2035 feels like a long way from today. But there is plenty to gain and little to lose from preparing tomorrow's workplace.

Work matters. More than just a way to make a living, work is the crucible from which our identities are formed and the place we build relationships.

However, the emergence of new technologies presents new challenges and is shifting the work landscape. While some foresee the mass automation of jobs, workforce restructuring influenced by increasing use of AI and robotics and other efficiencies, and excessive surveillance in the workplace, others believe a new machine age will usher in work that is more humane, productive and purposeful.
