COVID-19 - Work of the Future Perspectives

MIT's Task Force on the Work of the Future has been providing perspectives, responding to media inquiries, and participating in virtual events to share viewpoints on the economy, government response, worker voice, and technological advancements. As the Task Force examines its current research and initiatives with a new lens, one thing that is increasingly clear is the importance of understanding and shaping the relationship between work and technology. The Task Force will continue to assess how institutions can play a role in shaping policies that will foster a future of shared prosperity.
