WIRED wants to know how YOU want to work

The dream of so many people is this: deciding when, where, and how you work. It used to be something unrealistic, but as the world becomes more connected, people want to create a work setup that gives them freedom.

A shift in power

“Talented people need organizations less than organizations need talented people.” -Dan Pink

In the past companies had control, offering job security, however in recent years the tables have turned. To attract and keep top talent, organisations are having to rethink what they can offer potential talent aside from a job and a paycheck.

Conversations are taking place around the world on how to revolutionise work and stay relevant to today’s top talent. The future of work is something that is being discussed by everyone from economists to HR professionals, but what about you, the actual talent?

The ForeWork Initiative

To add your voice to the conversation, jovoto founded the ForeWork Initiative in partnership with adidas, Cisco, and Vitra. ForeWork was created to connect the desires and concerns of creatives, innovators, entrepreneurs, and young professionals with organizational changemakers. ForeWork is a platform to support young talent as they shape their own future.

To spotlight how you want to work, ForeWork has teamed-up with WIRED. Inspired by WIRED’s commitment to “the people and ideas changing our world,” ForeWork is excited to offer up-and-coming talent the space to “think big” and have their voices heard by organizational management, thought leaders, and changemakers from around the world.
