Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this article is to assess the future of work, focusing on careers, stress and well-being. Design/methodology/approach – Assesses the future of work, which will focus on small to medium-sized enterprises, self-employed portfolio careers and outsourced workers in virtual organisations. Findings – The future of flexible working does not have to be a “doom and gloom” scenario; it can prove to be a liberating experience, giving choice and control to the individual – but individuals have to arm themselves with the right skills and attitudes, and engage in a constant programme of personal development. Originality/value – This paper outlines how individuals in the future will have to take responsibility for their own personal development in regard to their work towards balancing work and the family, and better utilising disposable personal time.
