An Interview with Phil La Duke
Benefits will go mobile — We may see benefits that you can take with you throughout your career. For example, in the future benefits could be provided through a service or vendor that you take with you from job to job. These benefits would not be managed by your current employer, but you get credits toward the benefits provider of your choice.
There have been major disruptions in recent years that promise to change the very nature of work. From the ongoing shifts caused by the COVID19 pandemic, the impacts caused by automation, and other possible disruptions to the status quo, many wonder what the future holds in terms of employment. For example, a report by the McKinsey Global Institute that estimated automation will eliminate 73 million jobs by 2030.
To address this open question, we reached out to successful leaders in business, government, and labor, as well as thought leaders about the future of work to glean their insights and predictions on the future of work and the workplace.
