During this Breakfast Briefing on 19 June 2018, Dr Peter Bloom, Senior Lecturer in Organisational Studies and Head of the Department for People and Organisations at The Open University Business School, gave his thoughts on the Future of Work in relation to the widely-predicted 'fourth industrial revolution'.

Peter asked asked how can the rapid technological advances in computing, robotics and communications that are revolutionising work and life, be empowering, rather than dis-empowering, for people and organisations? He explored the ways in which practitioners can use technology for social empowerment and how we can create a smarter workforce.
