Future of Work 2.0: What Trends Are on the Horizon?

If the future of work is now, what trends are on the horizon? We’re exploring FOW 2.0 with visionaries from leading global companies. Now that accelerated digitization, skills-based organizations and agile working are a reality, it’s time to consider what’s next and how to take advantage of future opportunities. With Mercer’s recently released 2022 Global Talent Trends report and the World Economic Forum’s Good Work Framework as a backdrop, we’ll engage in a robust conversation around trends, practice, and prediction.
