The Shape of Work to Come: 42 Things to Know About the Future of Your Work

2019-07-23


We’ve compiled a field guide that maps out where we are and where we’re going in the very near future when it comes to the new world of work.

There’s no escaping the vast technological, societal and cultural shifts reverberating through our lives — even, or particularly, at work. From where we work (couch or cubicle), to what we wear (hoodie or suit), to the issues we face while there (human or cyborg), the office of tomorrow is already in development today.

At the Cognizant Center for the Future of Work, we’ve been covering the developments driving these changes, from the rise of robots and machine learning, to the emergence of quantum physics and the unexaggerated death of privacy.

Now, we’ve compiled a field guide that we believe represents a state of the union for the future of work. The title of our guide — From/To — represents our belief that the best way to understand the future is to take a hard look at our (quickly changing) present. Across five categories and 42 trends, we describe where we are now and where we’re going, starting with “From Hierarchy to Wirearchy” and ending with “From Diversity to Belonging.”

Why 42? Because as author Douglas Adams points out, it’s the answer to life, the universe and everything. So that surely must include work.

We invite you to peruse our From/To ebook, categorized by The Way We Work, The Tools of Work, The Aesthetics of Work, The Issues with Work and The Meaning of Work. But don’t wait too long — by the time you get to work tomorrow, things may already be on their way to the future. Learn more by visiting our Center for The Future of Work website.
