How the work-life evolved

  • In the 1700s and 1800s, workdays were long, and conditions were rough and sometimes dangerous. Older adults worked 12-hour days well past the last quarter of their lives.
  • In the late 1800s, the age of mass production caused improved working conditions as businesses scaled, and the idea of working and retiring emerged. Now, you worked for 8 to 10 hours a day and could spend the rest of your time with family and friends.
  • With the digital revolution, these worlds started to merge out of choice.

Work post-pandemic

Work post-pandemic

Some people want to work for high performing teams and be great leaders and teammates. But others don't want their lives defined by their work.

They prefer to pursue careers that provide more autonomy and freedom, even if it means getting paid less or letting go of their job titles. They realise that they don't need to be in an office five or six days per week to be effective - they are far more effective working half as much from home.

Rethinking work

Businesses will need to rethink how they engage, motivate and support their employees.

  • Companies will need to explore different employment contracts, such as the 11-month contract of the 4-day workweek. Maybe even focus on effectiveness based on quality, not time.
  • The future office space might be local pop-ups and offsite venues where employees meet periodically.
  • Or maybe it still includes office life and regular working hours.

In the end, the future of work may be about having a choice.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
