The definition of work—and what work means to us—is changing.

In this new digital age, we’re more connected than ever. Our work is more flexible, and yet also more demanding. We collaborate with colleagues from all over the globe, bringing a range of experiences, perspectives and expectations. We’re becoming an economy of gig workers, as the remote and distributed workforce has become the norm.

Although we have seen these trends emerging over the last few years, the pace of change has never been more urgent; especially during these unprecedented times.

As the line between our professional and personal lives blur, and we are forever ‘logged on’, finding balance and stamina is increasingly difficult for some of us. Finding purpose, increasingly important.

Amid all this rapid change and global disruptionhow can organizations take a truly human approach to work while keeping a focus on the bottom line?

Our reliance on a digitally connected world, one where remote working is the new norm, brings significant opportunities and implicationsto the skills we need, the way we learn, and our relationship with the technologies that fuel our new reality at work.
