The future of work

The past 12 months have seen major changes to how people are both working and consuming. Because of the pandemic and lockdowns, not only are we forced to rethink where we work, but also how to balance our personal life with our professional life.

Additionally, more than ever, consumers and employees are demanding companies take action on huge issues like climate change and racial justice.

To discuss these challenges and opportunities we're joined by leading experts Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic and Betsy Reed.
