The Future of Work – Thematic Research

The world of work is in a state of flux. Technology is fundamentally transforming the way we work, fueling excitement but also anxiety. A prolonged decline in overall employment is unlikely, but society will have to adapt to significant structural changes.

Scope

This report provides an overview of the future of work, one of the most important themes impacting the world in which we live.

It includes a comprehensive thematic framework for looking at the future of work. This framework is made up of five categories: visualization, connectivity, automation, collaboration, and interpretation.

Key Highlights

Fundamental shifts in the structure of the labor market, such as the polarization of the labor force and the rise of the gig economy, were already well underway before the pandemic but, post-COVID-19, these changes are likely to gain fresh momentum, making the discourse around the future of work and its potential positive and negative effects more relevant than ever.

Reasons to buy

The future of work will reshape factories and offices, encouraging greater collaboration between humans and technology, and empowering workers with new digital skills. In the background, the increased use of technology is bringing about profound political, economic, and social change. This report helps you make sense of this vitally important theme, by providing you with a clear thematic framework.
