Future of Work: No one future of work for all jobs?

The head of the Working Life unit at Eurofound, the EU’s labour relations and social policy research institute, has written a fascinating blog on some of the key issues that will impact the future of work

Why it matters: Gerstenberger contends, “it is not change that people don't like: it is the uncertainty that it brings.” And she notes, there is plenty of uncertainty in the rapidly changing world of work, “which is leading us to ask ourselves”:

  • Will remote work fundamentally alter how we work together? 
  • Will AI-powered robots manage us? 
  • Will the 'platformisation' of work lead to a deterioration in working conditions?
  • Will all 'green' jobs be good jobs?

The bottom line: She deduces: “that there is no one future of work for all jobs – policymakers will have their work cut out to ensure that remote and platform working, artificial intelligence and climate change policies will benefit, not disadvantage, workers.”
