Rethinking Work

In the twenty-first century, working culture has been heavily influenced by technological innovation. The computing boom of the 1990s created a wealth of new occupations and modes of productivity, while simultaneously making a host of once common occupations rare or obsolete. There has also been a shift in priorities in the United States since the 2000s, with an emergent focus on well-being and fulfillment in the workplace and a simultaneous surge of interest in ways to make the workplace more creative and innovative. The 2000s have also seen a vast expansion of many industries thanks to the opening of international markets through the Internet and thus, many formerly isolated companies now have the potential to compete in global markets. While the advent of the Digital Age has seen numerous world-changing innovations that have modernized the working world, arguably for the better, persistent economic and social inequities remain and present a challenge for those looking to create better, more egalitarian, or more harmonious futures.
