Solving for the Future of Work with David Timis, Outgoing Curator at Brussels Global Shapers Hub
In this episode of SolveCast, we speak to David Timis, Author, Keynote Speaker, and Outgoing Curator at Brussels Global Shapers Hub. The Global Shapers Community is a collective of young people aimed at finding solutions and creating policies to change the world for the better.
There’s no mistaking that stereotypical office life has been turned on its head in these past months. Due to both the pandemic and tech developments, work and education are now "gravitating around technology" more than ever.
David offers his analysis of how the coronavirus has accelerated work life into an entirely new landscape - one that might be here to stay even after the virus is long gone. Whether the greatest changes look like “hybrid-mode” office and home schedules, increased “digital skilling initiatives,” or simply heightened attention to employee mental health, David believes that they reveal something authentic about modern life.
He gives a prognosis of what kind of companies will have changed the most from the pandemic, and which companies were already equipped to make the digital transition. .
Before signing off, David leaves some down-to-earth advice for students who will soon enter a working world that is far different from those we are used to seeing on television.
