[Slideshare]: The Future of Finding Work (TEDxBedminster 2015)


The Future of Finding Work lies in a state of multi-work, or working in multiple roles at the same time. The idea of a single full-time jobs causes up to 20-25% productivity loss during our tenure (3.5-4.5 years on average). The reality is that we spend up to 8 months just learning our job environments, so why not split your time at multiple different work environments? In addition, we are starting to see new technologies that turn work into platforms that can manage work assignment and logistics for us.

[Facebook]: Take Aways from the Innovation for Jobs Summit, 2015


Nilofer Merchant (Martin Prosperity Institute fellow) shared her Takeaways from the recent Innovation for Jobs summit.

“My father had one job in his life,” noted Robin Chase [Founder & former CEO Zipcar]
“I’ll have six jobs in my life.
My children will have six jobs at the same time.”

[I like Robin’s point above. Nilofer also included a nice shout out for my Forbes piece:]

“In a talk at BCG, Rainer Strack’s says we have a $10 Trillion talent shortage.
David Nordfors notes a $140 trillion untapped market for jobs.
The key in taking advantage of this shift is the role of the individual, not the organization.

Sandeep Sander [Vivaldi Partners Group] suggested the key is to have individuals take responsibility for their own ability to create value; the question is, how to enable this?

One ongoing conversation has been about the role of “multiployment”—where one
can work for multiple organizations at a time, globally. Note the shift though in frames:

Organization centric ==> Customer Centric ==> Individual Centric.
