What we're about

Are you ready for the future of work?

Work is defined as an ‘activity involving mental or physical effort performed in order to achieve a specific purpose or result’. Work is also defined as ‘something a person or a thing has to do’. Whatever your definition of work may be, whether it be challenging, boring, eventful, interesting, or compelling… the reality is ‘work’ as we know it today is likely to change. It will change as a result of technologies, such as robotics, artificial intelligence and process automation. Work will look differently as the structure of work will be redefined with the rapid advancements of gig economies, and variable working models and philosophies. The facts are astounding: 47% of workers in America at high risk of jobs replaced by automation. 65% percent of children now entering primary school will hold jobs that currently don’t exist.
Think tanks, academics, government agencies and private institutions leverage the coined term ‘Future of Work’ to explain this phenomenon. We believe it is our duty and responsibility to ensure that we do not become disadvantaged as a result. As parents, guardians, coaches and mentors, it is important that we ensure that our most valued assets (you and your kids) are not affected, but instead are prepared to participate in a world where the future is secured. Otherwise, we become part of the unfavorable segment of the statistics.

To address this, we have created this group to foster better understanding of the use of technology in our environmental settings. Technology use and consumption is increasingly recognized by many organizations as their most valuable asset or resource. We need to understand the impact that technology will have in how we work, now and in the future.
