Preparing For The Future of Work
We’ve all heard about how technology is encroaching on jobs us humans depend on. And according to a recent Oxford University study, as many as 47 percent of all jobs are likely to be eliminated by automation within the next 20 years.
Because we’re all about solutions here at SFW, Liz and Rico are chatting today with Art Bilger and Jane Oates of WorkingNation, a campaign to prepare workers for changes tech may bring to their industry, and what the jobs of the future will be. Their first suggestion? Don’t panic.
But first, Liz and Rico are doling out advice to listener Sophie, who wants to know if she should stay at a less-than-satisfying job that she thinks is quote: “good for her.”
Later, listener Indok is calling to get some tips for surviving the night shift (cue The Commodores).
As always, if you've got a burning workplace question and need some advice, don't hesitate to send us an email (that email, unsurprisingly, is also Safe@Wondery.com). You can also find us on Twitter, we’re @SafeFor Work. Don't forget to follow our sage hosts on Twitter, too; they're @SSLiz and @RicoGagliano. And if you want to check out Liz’s other show, Satellite Sisters, you can find it on Apple Podcasts or Art19.
