The GWI’s new report, “The Future of Wellness at Work,” forecasts the many profound ways that work will change in the future. Long-term, stable jobs (at set locations/hours) will give way to a virtual and “free agent” workforce that will be intensely multigenerational: By 2020, teens and employees over 70 will work side-by-side. The big shift comes from the fact that the Information Age will be succeeded by a “Wisdom” Age; as robots and Artificial Intelligence coopt many work tasks, human qualities not replicable by machines (collaboration, creativity, empathy, etc.) will be in high demand. And these are precisely the qualities that demand the highest level of mental and physical wellness.
