The future of work is here. Over the past decade, the way in which we think about our jobs and our time has changed immensely. The beginning of a new decade is the perfect time to reflect critically at how far we’ve come and how far we have to go to make the ‘future’ of work a reality for all of us.
Last week we held our latest #SaaSChats, a one-hour Twitter chat, where we dissected workplace trends, old and new, and discussed how they will evolve and have an impact on our work in the years to come.
