What is the
FUTURE OF WORK?
The future of work is…

TRANSPARENT
No one is going to
just take your word for it.
In the past, productivity was di cult
(if not impossible) to measure.
Business wasted millions of dollars every year
paying for employee downtime.
Now, time and task tracking tools are
revolutionizing productivity measurement.
Each employee’s work can
be directly tied to
the bottom line.
The more productively you work,
the more money you’ll make.
The future of work is…

      FLAT
No one is going to complain
about their commute.
In real estate the mantra is
“Location. Location. Location.”
At work the mantra is
“Communication. Communication.
      Communication.”
“Work” used to be
     considered a place.
The only options for communication were
     landline phones or snail mail.
Today, project teams use amazing web tools
to work together from
  anywhere in the world.
Tools like Skype have made
long-distance calling
         virtually free.
The world is now flat.
o rganization
The world is now flat.
Call centers used to be massive o ces built in
rural areas or countries like India.
In 2004 JetBlue started a revolution, allowing
700 customer service reps to work from home
with no central o ce.
In the future,
location will not matter.
The future of work is…

COMPETITIVE

just for having a degree.
