Spurred by technology and a new generation of creative talent, work is in the midst of a rapid transformation. We are connecting brands, innovators, experts, and a global crowd to shape the future of work.
Discussions about the future of work often leave out one key stakeholder: the talent of the future.
The ForeWork initiative is leveraging open innovation methods to change the dynamics and give this new generation a voice. What do they want from the future of work? What can we learn from early adopters of New Work concepts?
After challenging a global crowd of young professionals to share their ideas and visions, we will bring the brightest young minds together in person with corporate executives and international thought leaders to co-create scenarios about the future of work.
This large-scale mass-collaboration session will:
Connect brands with innovators, entrepreneurs, and creative professionals all over the world to rethink work
Give them a stage to share their visions, ideas, and experiences about the future of work
Bring top creatives, thought leaders, and corporate delegates together to distill key insights & build futuristic scenarios
The ForeWork Initiative will host a series of crowdstorms – brainstorms at internet scale with 80k creative professionals.
The “Looking ForeWork” crowdstorm kicked off the initiative together with WIRED to produce content featuring the next generation’s vision for the future of work. 153 ideas were submitted, providing a lot of insights and inspiration to build on.
In the initiative’s second crowdstorm, “Design ForeWork”, participants travel into the year 2025 to take “Future Snapshots” that show how the physical and digitally-connected workspace has evolved and how teams will work together in the future.
Submissions will showcase the tools and techniques of the future for improving the physical/virtual work environment and team collaboration.
