The Shift PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Shift free pdf An unhysterical look at the future of employment. We are now facing a revolution in the way we work. A substantial schism in the past which is so great that the work we do will change - possibly so that in two decades our working lives will have been so REWORKED that they are unrecognisable. This is not just about the impact that a low carbon enonomy will have on the way we work. It is also about how the nexus of technology and globalisation will work together with demographic and societal changes to fundamentally transform much of what we take for granted about work. Why will things change so quickly? What will these changes look like? Who will benefit and who will suffer? How do we navigate our career through these times? Lynda Gratton, Professor at London Business School, is the perfect person to answer these questions. For the past three years she has worked with companies around the world to draw up a picture of the Future of Work. In this book Professor Gratton looks at the forces which are changing how we work- explains the potential impact on our future working life- and gives us guidelines on how to thrive in a REWORKED world.
