This month’s content on the future of work was made possible by my friends at Work Market. Work Market is a freelance management system that brings freelancers and organizations together. As the freelancer economy continues to grow organizations are going to have to think differently about how they service, innovate, and compete in the future of work.

What this episode is about and why you should care

This episode of the Future of Work podcast I have the pleasure of speaking with Adam Warby, CEO of Avanade. Avanade is a global technology solutions/cloud management service with over 20,000 employees worldwide. Our focus is exploring why the future of work is all about digital transformation. While there is a lot of discussion happening around digital transformation, there is still not that much clarity around what it actually is, how to do it, what it is going to look like, etc. Adam and I go in-depth around digital transformation, and he shares Avanade’s recent report that identifies four trends that they see as driving digital transformation going forward. We also look at how the workplace is evolving, trends that are shaping the future of work, Millennials, wearables and more. Adam also shares valuable insights for organizations and employees interested in embarking on this digital transformation journey. So, tune in to hear Adam Warby on digital transformation!
