Until recently our understanding of “work” remained largely unchanged since the industrial revolution. Many of the standards and conventions that were established over 100 years ago faced their first real challenge in the wake of the pandemic. Now, as organizations continue to play catch up, even more disruption is on its way. That’s because artificial intelligence is poised to have an even more dramatic impact on how, where, when and why we work. As a freelance journalist who reports on the “Future of Work” for some of the biggest news outlets in Canada and around the world, Jared Lindzon is well positioned to provide clarity on how the workplace has evolved in recent years, and where it’s most likely headed next. He believes that as we enter the next chapter in its evolution, we can learn much about what will come next by exploring what came before.
Jared Lindzon is a freelance journalist and public speaker based in Toronto. Though he covers a wide range of subject areas — including tech, entertainment, and business — Lindzon has emerged as one of the country’s leading voices on the “Future of Work.” Beyond his regular columns in Fast Company, The Globe & Mail, BetaKit and TIME Magazine Lindzon’s reporting has also been featured in The New York Times, the Guardian, Fortune Magazine, Rolling Stone and The BBC, among others.
