NEW YORK, May 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- This provocative point of view examines work in the current context of automation (47% of jobs will be automated within the next 25 years, per Oxford University, 2013; and 6% of those jobs will be gone by 2021) and begins to offer solutions for how people, companies and cultures can adapt to the new reality of work.
Condensing thinking from some of the world's all-time best economists and thinkers (from Adam Smith to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to Peter Drucker), the paper acknowledges that a heavily automated future has been a forgone conclusion for centuries now, and that the very fathers of capitalism felt—with near unanimity—that machines would ultimately force us to alter our relationship with the institution of work.
This has major implications for how companies need to organize and manage their businesses and brands.
