The Future of Work and the Workforce, rewind and replay

 

During my presentation on the future of work I discussed the productivity conundrum that the world faces at the moment where global productivity is stagnating, in spite of technological advances. I also discussed the reasoning for several four day week experiments as companies try to dispense with old work norms and find new ways to boost productivity.

Then I moved onto the discuss the differences – for better and worse – between the automated, autonomous, and augmented technologies that are helping re-write and disrupt the world of work, and showed how even the most demanding and skilled jobs, such as construction and neurosurgery, are being decentralised as technology convergence helps people work in new ways from anywhere – even home. All for starters.
