This is a question I get asked quite frequently and it’s been written about and explored for many decades. However, recently this topic is gaining even more momentum as start to explore things such as freelancers, automation, robots, and workplace flexibility. There’s an interesting debate going on around this and in the latest episode of the #futurein5 I explore both sides and share where I think we are headed and why. Keep in mind that we are already starting to see robots and automation entering our workplace and personal lives and we are also starting to see the emergence “smart software” (think IBM Watson) entering our organizations. Personally, I would like and hope to see a world where we indeed work fewer hours but as you will see in the video there’s a big difference between the legal definition of a work-week versus the one that we choose to create for ourselves. Just because we can work fewer hours, will we?
