The Future of Work

Gabrielle Frieda Loh

Global Account Manager

Jobbatical

Technological and social forces are transforming the world of work. How work gets done, who does it, where and even what work looks like are being negotiated across the world over.

The growth of freelancing and the ease of mobility have unleashed the global workforce, freeing it from many traditional bounds and constraints. No longer do teams need to work in the same location or at the same time. No longer are companies constrained to talents in a limited geographical region. Talents globally are open to opportunities beyond their city or country of origin.

The future of work can seem all too exciting, frightening and complex at the same time.

How can we prepare ourselves for the future of work?
