The future of work



People are people, it turns out, and much of what we are told “divides” millennials from other generations really comes down to differing approaches to work itself and the ever-faster adoption of new technology and media.

That, at least, is the key finding of our comparative survey of 502 Canadian professionals and their perspectives on working life. Separated by years – even decades – in age, millennials and non-millennials share what some may consider surprisingly similar attitudes toward work. Where they differ is in how they work and get things done – and this dynamic has the potential to profoundly change the workplace, leading to a future that is more social, more flexible, more technological and less hierarchical.

The big questions we need to start asking, then, are these: How do these differences play out when it comes to workplace culture and recruiting? Can we be more flexible in allowing people to work in ways that make them productive and engaged, even if they’re not conventional? Are we committed to building innovative workplaces that allow today’s leaders to thrive and prepare the leaders of tomorrow?


Also we thought it would be good to share this great insight as to the Future of work from from John Brenman, a great thought leader on the power of presentations.
