Living longer – working longer; living better – working better. What does the future have in store? Find out in our video interview with Ian Khan.

Ian Khan is the creator and inventor of the Future Readiness Score, a methodology that helps organisations be “future ready” and address the impact of disruption before it occurs. Khan is a futurist and his new film “What Is The Future of Work?” will be out shortly on Amazon Prime.

Longevity.Technology: When it comes to disruption, increasing life expectancy is about as disruptive as it gets. Living longer will mean working longer, so we were keen to talk to Ian Khan and find out what The Future of Work will look like, what the impact of technology will be and how quality of life will be affected.

Check out my fascinating interview with Ian:

Ian Kahn on…

Future workers:

“Companies, organisations and governments need to look at the future of work with questions in mind. “How do we keep our employees engaged? Who is going to be our future worker? How do we keep them happy?” There are different elements to the future of work … We’ve seen so much of that change in the past year and a half because of COVID-19, but there’s already a change underway because of technology, because of migration of people and urbanisation.”

Farewell to 9 to 5:

“I don’t believe the nine to five will remain as a rock solid foundation – work is becoming much more blended across locations, time zones… Now the older generation has the flexibility of time, choosing hours, services and what to do for a living.”

Debunking the future:

Technology is not going to dictate everything we do; the idea that certain economies might be doing well, because they’re technologically forward needs debunking.”

Defining work:

“The definition of work is changing; I really believe that technology may help us understand ourselves better, help us prioritise what our needs are and what we want to do and how we want to contribute to the world in a different way. But we have to broaden our horizons, and we’ve got to think beyond just performing an action, a task, going to a location, going to a workplace, or even work from home, and earning a living through that so that we can support a quality of life, but also consider happiness and satisfaction.”

Jobs for Millennials:

“I think on there’s two sides to it: one is specialisation, going back to the principles of ego for those who really want to figure out what they want to do, and then there is this explosion of technology that opens up so many different options … It is predicted that the younger generations will see 10-20 different careers in their in their lifetime.”
