Jobs, and nature of work as we know it, are changing rapidly. As companies become more "digital," employees need to be empowered to become more innovative. Disruptive changes to work behaviors and business models will have a profound impact on the nature of work and worker.

In many industries and countries, the most in-demand occupations, specialties, and skills did not exist ten or even five years ago, and the pace of change is set to accelerate. This will have a tremendous impact on how the workforce of the future acquires and applies new skills, and how companies organize work to stay nimble and competitive.

In this book, experts from industry and academia explore these trends and discuss how innovative companies are leveraging Artificial Intelligence and intelligent tools to make the workforce more inclusive, and enhance and augment the human worker rather than replace it.
