“What does the future of work look like?”

This is the first of two key questions asked at the First World Congress on the Future of Work last week:

The answers from a group of thought leaders on the future workplace:

one: Work is becoming less place-based, with more mobile workers and informal teleworking in a less structured system. The anyplace workplace.

two: There is a growing need for community building as business systems become more complex and individuals are vastly more information-sophisticated. We’ll be working as teams more than ever – primarily because we can, more than ever.

three: We’ll have more work-live choices, challenging us to determine which combinations provide our highest work-life balance. In other words, many will soon say goodbye to the terms “9 to 5” and “commute”, but how?

Tomorrow: Implementation.
