[Excerpt] In this Instagram age of texts and tweets, it should come as no surprise that the most important and complex workplace challenge facing CEOs and CHROs is neatly summarized by the acronym ‘FoW’. Forget YOLO, FOMO or even VUCA, the Future of Work (FoW) is top of mind for global leaders as they wrestle with exactly what it means and how to best prepare their organizations for a future that is increasingly hard to predict. The good news? An April 2018 study by Catalant found that 63% of surveyed companies had a FoW plan in place1. The bad news? By the time the proverbial ink is dry, those plans may be woefully out of date or misaligned to the changing dynamics of the FoW.
