Employment is changing dramatically. The rise of the platform economy has introduced a convenient way to match those in need of services to those who can offer them, and all with a click of a button. The number of so called 'gig workers' or 'platform workers' is rising. Therefore, we wonder, what will the future of work look like?              

          The 19th and 20th of October, academics, policymakers, business leaders and platform workers will come together to experience the future of work and find ways to shape it.

             ShareNL together with the University of Amsterdam, will convene this group of people during a two-day interactive conference held in Amsterdam. This is the first international, multidisciplinary and thought leadership event in Europe to redesign work in the platform economy. Participants will get the latest insights from policy, academia and business, and they will also get to experience the platform economy first-hand.



Future of Work Manifesto


As well as an empowered and  inspired audience, the outcome of the conference will be a Future of Work Manifesto encapsulating the main topics discussed and conclusions reached during debates and creative sessions.  


There is a need to bring different disciplines together and map the current situation. 

Studies point to the power of new technologies to bring enormous changes to the labor market, which has landed the topic “future of work” to the agenda of many organizations and regulatory institutions.



Themes to discuss include, but are not restricted to: 


The current state of the labour market in Europe and changes brought about with the platform economy

Policy: How can we create certainty in an increasingly flexible labor market?


Key research topics in the coming years

New/emerging platform business models and organizational forms (e.g. cooperatives)

Online reputation  and the labour market controlled by algorithms
