Future of Work
Thu 6 October 2016, 18:00 – 21:00 BST
Technology and innovation continue to flip every industry on its head. Leading organisations have embraced a new model of operating that rewards productivity over presence. The number of creative independents steadily increases while corporates flexing tired post-industrial organising models are on the decline.
In previous Future of Work editions, we've explored a range of themes including hollywood models, burst working, automation, inequality, collaboration, creativity and more. Join Social Fabric for our 6th and biggest edition yet, as we gather together at WeWork Old Street.
In an inclusive and intimate evening you will get engrossed in debate and rub shoulders with leaders to design a future where you wake up every day doing your best work.
