The Future of Work for the 50+Considerations for workers and employers.

Share This

People are living (and working) longer, and there are lasting effects. How will we respond to these 5 megatrends that are shaping the future of work?

The world and the way we live in it are changing. Many of us are living longer, healthier lives. Soon, living to 100 won't be an anomaly but a common milestone.

However, not all will benefit from the longevity increase. We'll see people work well into their 70s and 80s, because they want to, or must. How will employers, policymakers, and workers adapt?
