MANIFESTO & SPEAKERS

"I can't wait for the end of the day, I can't wait for the weekend, I can't wait for the holidays, I can't wait for retirement ... " STOP

Why should work be a burden that we should get rid of as soon as possible? Can't we enjoy working, find meaning and fulfillment in it? 

 

No matter how old you are, sooner or later you will reflect on the meaning of your work and wonder about the options available to you. Fortunately, work has evolved considerably since the last century and its very definition has expanded! Individuals now have the choice to reject linear careers in order to develop their own path and consider work from a positive perspective. These transformations are not the exclusive privilege of the younger generation but reflect a major paradigm shift that concerns society as a whole. 

 

Recent technological progress, new managerial practices and new attitudes towards work now make it possible to create several options for those who want to give meaning to what they do. 

 

Work for a company that gives you trust, become a digital nomad, start freelancing, earn a living from your passion, join a community ...

 

These different ways of giving meaning to work are far from being unique and others will soon be invented. This is the principle of the Future of Work, nothing is set in stone! 

We use the expression Future of Work to describe the best practices, methods, and trends of a minority of individuals who are “ahead of their time” and whom we consider “in the future”. The Future Of Work is already a reality for some people and we will talk about their work as “ the future” until it is adopted by a majority of people.

 

Work in Progress offers a positive vision of work. A work that is not alienating, but on the contrary, a source of fulfillment. Today, it is up to each person to create his or her own work environment according to his or her personal aspirations, within the Future of Work.

 

Work in Progress opens the scope of possibilities.
