The Future of Work

Future research shows that while human skills remain in demand, long-term jobs are becoming scarcer, making flexibility and lifelong learning essential. The future workplace will be diverse, with remote work, freelancing, and new employment forms. Technology will become more intertwined with human creation, offering opportunities and challenges, including the risk of losing the benefits of direct human interactions and spontaneous discussions.
