Overview

The world is changing and so is the very notion of 'work'. For years we have been told that our aging workforce will mean a shortage of workers in many industries. More recently, the narrative has changed to one where robots do everyone's work and there are not enough jobs to go around. Which view of the future is correct? More important, how will our lives and organizations change as we navigate the changing realities? In Work Is Not a Place: Our Lives and Our Organizations in the Post-Jobs Economy, Linda Nazareth casts an economist's eye to the way the big trends are changing what used to be our reliable touchstones and writes an engaging story about our future. From looking at the way global change, demographics and technology are coming together to re-shape the work world, through to examining the challenges for individuals, businesses and governments, she sketches a reality that is both un-settling and exciting.
