LIFEST

explores the changing way in which we WORK and LIVE, focusing on the impact for:

individuals
the workplace
society
the world

The INDIVIDUAL:

As the lines between work & life are increasingly blurred we face greater challenges to our quest to lead a balanced lifestyle.  At the same, it presents us with great opportunities.  Increased freedom to work from where and when we want (known as location independence), increases our ability to be the designer of our own lifestyles.

The WORKPLACE:

Companies of all sizes are grappling with the idea of workplace flexibility.  Technology enables greater freedom for remote work - but what are the pro’s and con’s? To what extent should managers allow employees to work outside the confines of the office walls?

SOCIETY:

Workplace flexibility has enormous potential to impact upon society in a variety of ways. Relationships and families have the capacity to redefine structures and roles. Remote work enables access to jobs for parents to work from home, those living in rural areas, and for the disadvantaged with limited mobility.

The WORLD:

Companies are opening their eyes (and minds) to recruit remote workers. Some motivated by cost reductions, others to tap into a global talent pool.  Consequently, developing countries can benefit.

The FUTURE OF WORK, the FUTURE OF LIFE

These are just some of the ways in which location independence is impacting the Future of Work and, ultimately, the future of LIFE. We will be digging deep and exploring other ways in which this movement, this revolution, is impacting upon all areas of life.
