Work that we don't fully understand yet…that is weird, strange, unsettling, trivial and extremely stretching…that is not fit for our parents and will seem ridiculous to our kids.



All around us a new world is being created.

Work is the foundation of modern society; everything else that we value, treasure, dream of, take for granted, worry about is based on work. Without work things fall apart. Look around and you see that work is changing radically and rapidly in all corners of the globe. Case in point is the recently implemented GDPR regulation.

To examine how work is changing, Cognizant has established the Center for the Future of Work to provide original research and analysis of work trends. The team collaborates with a wide range of business and technology thinkers and academics about what the future will look as technology changes so many aspects of our working lives.
