Since the Industrial Revolution, the Future of Work has been a topic which has consumed many thinkers; latterly, since the mid-late 2000s, this subject has intensified, as the world moves to an increasingly global, digital economy.
Some recurring themes include employment versus contracting – the Gig Economy – as exemplified by companies like Uber; flexible working hours; and Working From Home (WFH), a concept which gathered pace rapidly during the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic of 2020 and beyond.
Such topics are broadly described as “Future of Work”.
