With modern careers is the past prologue?: What has changed and how to lead the "new" worker.

When it comes to the "new career" there is always a new one around the corner. We're still not there yet. Since the turn of the century different terms have been offered such as "free agent", protean careers, boundaryless careers, etc. More recently the "great resignation" and "quiet quitting" have been added to our nomenclature. The terms of the new career seem starkly clear, but they are not. The psychological contract shifts from pole to pole between the organization and the worker. It seems the worker had declared independence during the height of the Covid pandemic but now the organization is trying to reclaim lost ground. This presentation will explore how well we can understand what today's employees want, whether they are close to getting it, what they want from their leaders and organizations.
