The old employment system of secure, lifelong jobs with predictable advancement and stable pay is dead. It’s time for Work 2.0
The changes in the world of work don’t just influence job seekers – they will, in fact, become the bread and butter of everyone who creates value in the economy – every single one of us!
Individual people will be asking themselves – how do I stay relevant on the job market? How do I succeed? How can I create my own job? Companies need to completely re-formulate the way they do business. How can I retain my top talent? How can I thrive in the era of intense cross-border competition? – these should be the questions crossing the mind of a successful executive. Governments need to ask themselves – how can we shape our country to become a better platform of doing business? How can we help people in this changing economy? How can we stay relevant and popular?

“Today work is being updated to its version 2.0. Changes are so profound that we can say we’re entering a new era of work – Work 2.0. It’s a new social contract between employers and employees, where purposeful human activity of independent knowledge, creation, and conversion using digital tools, together with adapting this new knowledge to market needs, takes place without direct contact (or with very little direct contact) with the person or organisation who commission this activity“. S.Prokurat, “Work 2.0: Nowhere to hide”, 2013, p.37.

Information is a stronger weapon than many conventional arms, knowledge is becoming the main source of competitive advantage
In Work 2.0 we express our individuality as we like, and not according to a set of defined rules
