Program: The Future of Work
In the November 2010 T&D Journal, Eileen McKeown states, “The world of work has changed drastically during the last 20 to 40 years. The next generation of workers can no longer expect to obtain or even find jobs that their parents have traditionally held, and the boundary between work and nonwork life has become blurred.”
American workers have been through decades of downsizing and most recently high unemployment. Jobs (as we know them) may not be coming back any time soon. Even people with jobs are wondering what the future holds for them. “Research by The Human Capital Institute indicates that one-third of the U.S. workforce comprises non-traditional ‘contract’ workers, sometimes referred to as freelancers, free agents, contingent workers or temps.” Meet an expert who has studied the current state and the future state of work. She will be your tour guide as you plan your next career steps.
