Future of Work
Technology and automation are rapidly reshaping industries, economies, and the world of work, and transatlantic exchange on the future of work is key to ensuring a sustainable future for all. We have generated national and international dialogue on how the U.S. and Europe can learn from each other, before shifting to focus on how cities, counties, and states can pioneer future of work policy. Using stakeholder engagement, video, and multimedia tools, we make the case for why local leaders should be thinking about — and planning for — the future of work.
An investigation by the Bertelsmann Foundation, in partnership with the National Association of Workforce Boards (NAWB), attempts to answer how the future of work will impact workers in America and Europe.
Recent technological advances are changing the way we do business, govern, and interact with each other. This shift is causing some concern over the future of work as technological innovations such as artificial intelligence and automation affect work. This challenge requires all members of the society to take action that will ensure technology creates a future that works and benefits everyone.
Mounting concern over the impact of technology and automation on economic, social, and political systems has induced slow-moving panic in Europe and the United States. As transatlantic policymakers race to lock in gains from rapid advances in technology and automation, they are also coming to grips with how new technologies such as artificial intelligence and robotics will affect work, tasks, and jobs.
