It’s news to no one that work today looks a lot different than it used to, from how days are structured to how long people stay—and expect to stay—at a company.
The motivating forces behind those ongoing changes were the focus of a survey of 800 employers, developed by the Aspen Institute’s Future of Work Initiative along with the Markle Foundation, Burson-Marsteller and Time Magazine, and conducted by research firm Penn Schoen Berland. The survey builds on a November 2015 survey of 3,000 Americans to understand the on-demand economy.
