Can we have ‘work without jobs’?
Agility has never been more important to the world of work. But, organizations cannot be truly agile until they revisit their underlying operating system—one that likely is based on antiquated notions of what work truly is.
That’s the hypothesis of Ravin Jesuthasan, global leader of Mercer’s Workforce Transformation Practice, and Dr. John Boudreau, a frequent author and researcher on the future of work. The pair recently wrote “Work Without Jobs” in the MIT Sloan Management Review and discussed the concept on a webinar this week hosted by Gloat, an internal talent marketplace provider.
