We hope you enjoyed the Wharton Future of Work Conference!

 

Watch sessions you missed (or watch your favorite speakers again!) by viewing
recordings from the event on the Wharton Future of Work Playlist.

Wharton People Analytics proudly hosted the inaugural
Wharton Future of Work Conference
on April 7, 2022.

 

As the world of work evolves, it’s more important than ever to seek
evidence rather than opinion when considering the questions
of how, where, and when we work.

 

Which is why we brought together a slate of speakers that included
Microsoft Chairman and CEO Satya Nadella talking with Adam Grant,
growth mindset pioneer Carol Dweck in conversation with Angela Duckworth,
and Organizational psychologist and Founder of APS Intelligence John Amaechi.

 

We discussed everything from burnout, to hybrid work, and the 4-day work week,
along with the great resignation, fair pay, and the surprising power of regrets.
