After COVID-19, the world around us will be changed forever. In a matter of weeks, working from home has become the norm, not the exception. The virus has forced a reckoning of how we view work, travel, engagement with others and the technologies that make these possible.
Before the pandemic, digital transformation was optional for many organizations. When COVID-19 took hold, necessity dictated that all organizations ‘become digital’. Virtually all work that can be done online has gone online, with new ways to collaborate and innovate. With work-from-home quickly becoming the norm, it is unlikely that the corporate office will be the only place to ‘get things done’ in the future.
Our guest is Benjamin Pring, head of Cognizant’s Center for the Future of Work. Ben is a co-author of the best-selling books, 'What To Do When Machines Do Everything' and 'Code Halos; How the Digital Lives of People, Things, and Organizations are Changing the Rules of Business'. In this episode, Ben provides a glimpse into the future of work and the impact on education, lifestyle, commerce and even the environmental agenda.
