Contemporary workplaces are, and will continue to be, disrupted by a multitude of factors, many of which are yet to be identified. The aims of this unit are to analyse three significant megatrends facing business today which include: firstly how the people¿s approach and attachments to their work will change in the future; the way technological advancements driven by computing power will shape future work; and finally the implication of globalisation on the future of work. While these three megatrends might provide unprecedented opportunities for business, this unit also debates the significant challenges these megatrends present for individuals, business and the society in which we live.
