Cognizant’s Center for the Future of Work (CFoW) released its latest whitepaper: After the Virus: A Special Report Looking Back on the Next Five Years, which considers what the world will look like in 2023.
The report examines how education, health, shopping and entertainment will become more virtual. How houses will be retrofitted with dedicated home office spaces as working at home becomes the norm, not the exception. It suggests that travel will become a last, not first, resort. It argues that the environmental agenda will gather momentum as we realize the virus is a scream for help from a planet that has added 6 billion people in under 100 years. And it outlines how the virus will force a reckoning of how we treat aging, and how we regard privacy.
Written as if in the year 2025, the authors look back on the changes that occurred in the days, months, and years following the great crisis of 2020. This perspective charts a path forward and provides lead indicators of what is to come. And argues that there is a future of work.
