A host of technological, sociodemographic, and economic shifts are shaping the future of work.  For example, technological advancement presents crucial implications for work and workers, and sociodemographic and economic changes have the potential to radically alter the social contract between employers and employees. These changes will have a significant impact on the way work is done in the future, the skills and capabilities required in the future workforce to meet these changing needs, and critical ways in which organizations must be redesigned to prepare for a new future.

In this CAHRScast, CAHRS research assistants Brianna Le, Dimitra Mourikes, and Sudip Roy will summarize key trends that companies should be aware of when thinking about and preparing for the future of work. These trends emerged from a review of CAHRS research, research-based consulting reports, and findings from organizations such as the International Labor Organization and World Economic Forum. More specifically, they will propose a new framework that combines macro-level themes (i.e. external factors that will shape the nature of work in the future) and micro-level trends (i.e. changes expected at work at an organizational level).

Brad Bell, Academic Director of CAHRS and Professor of Human Resource Studies at the ILR School, Cornell University, will serve as the moderator. As with all of our webcasts, the CAHRS RAs will take time to address questions and comments submitted by attendees.
