Serial careers. Microwork. Custom employment. These are just some of the new ways of redefining work in the 21st-century. As technology advances and social structures shift, the global marketplace becomes a rapidly evolving workplace that requires new forms of collaboration and productivity. In this webinar, Apollo Research Institute convenes experts in future forecasting along with visionaries from diverse industries to shed light on the changing nature of work.
