The Future of Work -- 01/17/18 Daypass -- Human Thriving in the New World of Work
Speaker’s Synopsis: Today the experience of work is radically changing. Almost 40% of workers are in nonstandard jobs such as freelance or contract work. People are working remotely, connecting to each other through text, email, and collaboration technology. Work can seemingly be accomplished anytime, anywhere. In this interactive talk we will explore these changing dynamics and how they impact thriving at work. Speaker: Professor Gretchen Spreitzer Gretchen M. Spreitzer is the Keith E. and Valerie J. Alessi Professor of Business Administration in the U. of M. Ross School of Business. Her research focuses on employee empowerment and leadership development, particularly within a context of organizational change and decline. Her recent work looks at positive deviance and how organizations enable employees to thrive. This work fits within a larger effort at Ross to develop a Scholarship of Positive Organizing. She has co-authored several books, including How to be a Positive Leader, and The Handbook of Positive Organizational Scholarship.
