How can we begin to shape a positive future of work, for all?
The future of work is the future of us, as individuals and communities, and as economies and societies. Nineteenth-century concepts of “work” have been in our lexicon since the last industrial revolution. The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed the future of work into hyperdrive, requiring us to look closely at how the definitions of these terms fit into the world today.
We are working with a community of leaders from academia, business, policy and civil society who share a commitment to a better work future for all. Together, we will focus on five opportunities, sharing transatlantic insights and formulating actionable recommendations.
Verizon and Xynteo have engaged with a diverse set of thought leaders and practitioners from across Europe and the United States. Findings so far are based on a structured review of available data and literature. To broaden our understanding, we conducted more than 30 interviews across academia, corporations, start-ups, governments and nongovernmental organizations, as well as conversations with Verizon leaders and insights from Europe Delivers contributors.
