FoW to Hit 100!
One of the things we’re most looking forward to in 2016 is welcoming our 100th member organisation into the Future of Work Research Consortium. We’re currently at 97 members, and we expect Q1 2016 will see us welcoming our 98th, 99th and 100th members in time for our Masterclass on Time and Performance in February.
It’s great to see the number of organisations taking an active interest in the future of work growing so steadily – and we’re looking forward to exploring our new themes with them.
Would you like to be our 100th FoW member? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how to get involved.
