The Swedish Work Lab is a platform to explore what the rapid pace of change in society mean(s) for employees and employers in both the near and distant future. What does tomorrow’s work life actually look like? What previously unknown challenges may we be facing? What or who is required for our work lives to thrive?
Our 21st century work lives are constantly evolving. They’re shaped by technological breakthroughs, new economic models, and evolving educational formats. Legislation catches up to ideas and re-frames how businesses can be run. There’s an increased expectancy on companies’ moral compass, and matters of ethics and sustainability may determine both where individuals choose to work as well as where customers choose to take their business. It’s up to us to shape the future we want to work in.
Our first step towards the future…
On September 5th 2019 we will bring perspectives from multiple disciplines together for a one day hackathon, to explore and solve challenges facing the future workplace. We will bring together bright minds with first-hand experience of facilitating a smooth work life for others with experts from industries and areas either affecting or being affected by the changes we see throughout society.
Half of the participants will be future-work experts from within TRR, and the other half will be thinkers, knowers, and doers from outside of TRR. We’re looking for people with curiosity and ideas about what the future of work could, or should, look like.
The ideas and prototypes will be communicated and shared with the public after the hackathon, and winning ideas will be awarded the opportunity to be part of TRR Labs’ Pilot program.
