Although the term, ‘the future of work’, suggests something that is to come, what is happening in today’s workplace is shaping that future. In this our final exploration of the topic, the future of work, for 2020, Dr Maurice McNaughton, of the University of the West Indies, shares his thoughts on among other things,

  • how tertiary-level institutions can better prepare students for the future of work;
  • how Caribbean countries can prevent the skills gap from widening;
  • the changing focus on work-life balance and quality of life; and
  • what should be the priorities of developing states as it relates to the future of work.
