PREPARING FOR THE FUTURE OF WORK
The nature of work is changing at lightning speed.
Full-time positions are giving way to gig work. Humans often shift careers 4 or 5 times over their working lives. The ease of remote access, increasing service automation, and relentless tech advances mean that the pace of change can only accelerate.
This means that our approach to education and job training must adapt even faster. The studies below explore how humans, especially the young, can develop competence, confidence, and flexibility to thrive in an uncertain future.
We’re constantly adding to this archive and in 2021 will begin adding original Hoodiebooks titles that explore this critical subject.
Here are the studies. Let us know what books they inspire you to read first!
FUTURE OF WORK COMMISSION
Work, and our experience of work, shapes our society and our nation. Work is at the centre of people’s lives, communities and the economy. When it changes, we change too. Only together can we build a fair, dynamic economy for the common good – creating good, fairly paid work through the technological revolution for the many, not the few.
INCLUSIVE FUTURE OF WORK: A CALL TO ACTION

THE FUTURE OF WORK: OECD EMPLOYMENT OUTLOOK 2019

created. A better world of work is not guaranteed – much will depend on having the right policies and institutions in place.

THE FUTURE OF WORK CONFERENCE
Whilst we are clearly witnessing major changes in technology and the workplace, the ‘revolution’ consists of many strains, and not all are moving at the same pace or even in the same direction. Certain jobs will be replaced, possibly many. But it’s also true that new jobs will be created.
WORKFORCE FUTURES: THE ROLE OF PEOPLE IN THE FUTURE OF WORK
Technology advancements, distributed workforces, and an overhaul in the way people think about work are driving a fundamental shift in the way that today’s businesses must operate. At the heart of this shift is a wave of new technologies that many businesses – and workers – do not yet fully understand.

THE FUTURE OF WORK AND LEARNING IN THE AGE OF THE 4TH INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION
This paper will highlight the changing nature of work and how societies must embrace new or hybrid learning models to allow individuals and economies to thrive going forward. Without a fundamental transformation in how we think about lifelong learning and skill development, individuals, communities, and whole economies will be left behind.
THE FUTURE OF WORK IS STILL BEING WRITTEN. BUT WHO IS HOLDING THE PEN?
On one hand, continuous progress promises higher productivity, economic growth, and greater efficiency. On the other hand, automation raises concerns and questions about the broader impact it could have on jobs, skills, wages, and even the nature of work itself.

WHAT IS THE FUTURE OF WORK? REDEFINING WORK, WORKFORCES AND WORKPLACES
Forces of change are affecting three major dimensions of work: the work itself, who does the work, and where work is done. To create value from these changes, organizations should take a broader perspective.
