*Why center workers in technology innovation?*

»The “future of work” goes beyond AI, ChatGPT, and automation. It includes technologies that range from algorithmic management, hiring and recruitment, employee listening, and predictive risk management tools to the use of digitized processes of upskilling or providing benefits, gig economy workforce models, and more. Below are some of the risks to consider:



As AI and machine learning technologies improve, many jobs, particularly those involving routine tasks, are at risk of automation. This could result in significant job loss and the need for workers to retrain or upskill. Additionally, careful analysis is needed to ensure that workers benefit from the productivity gains that automation can afford.


Remote Work and Digital Nomadism

The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the trend of remote work, with many companies now offering flexible work-from-home options. This has implications for worker's mental health, work-life balance, and the need for digital literacy.


Gig and Temporary Worker Economy

The rise of apps and platforms that facilitate contigent workforce arrangments has contributed to the expansion of the gig and independent worker economies, where workers take on short-term contracts or freelance work instead of permanent jobs. This has led to concerns about job security, wages, benefits, and workers' rights.



Technology can exacerbate existing social and economic inequalities. High-skilled workers who can leverage technology may see their incomes rise, while low-skilled workers may find their jobs automated away.


Skills Gap

There is a growing mismatch between the skills that employers need and the skills that workers have. This is particularly evident in tech-related fields, where the pace of change is rapid.


Data Privacy and Security

As work becomes more digital, concerns about data privacy and security are increasing. This includes both company data and personal data of employees.


Surveillance / Right to Disconnect

In absence of federal consumer data privacy legislation, consumers and workers alike face ongoing potential risks due to the mass collection of their personal data (which in many cases includes the collection of sensitive biometric and psychometrics data.  In return, this data collection can increasingly be used to identify, monitor, and surveil individuals inside and outside of the workplace. 


AI Ethics

As artificial intelligence becomes more integrated into the workplace, ethical considerations become more pressing. These include bias in AI systems, decision transparency, and the dehumanization of work.


Health and Well-being

Technological advancements can lead to overwork and burnout, as the boundaries between work and home life blur. Workers might also face physical health issues due to sedentary work style, and mental health issues due to isolation or stress.


Environmental Impact

Technology often requires significant energy use, contributing to climate change. The tech industry's environmental footprint and its efforts to reduce it are important considerations.


Workforce Demographics

The workforce is becoming more diverse and multi-generational. This means workplaces must be inclusive and adaptable to different working styles and needs.


Stakeholders must be proactive in balancing sustainable and inclusive innovation, alongside the protection of the workforce.
