After reading about how some failed and incomplete scientific research led to shunning of 'fat' in food products, I came across this post. 

"Fat is back". Yes, it is. When we can eat a lot of fried stuff, why do we create such a fuss about fat? Not all kinds of fat are bad for our health and weight loss goals.

Trends at Work: An Overview of Tomorrow’s Employment Ecosystem

Trends at Work: An Overview of Tomorrow’s Employment Ecosystem | T.I.P.S. Tracking | Scoop.it

Where will work be in the future? And where will workers be? The economic, social, and technological landscape is shifting rapidly. Here are some of the major trends altering the future workplace.


Via Kenneth Mikkelsen

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, February 11, 5:39 PM

Among the many broad trends affecting the future workplace and workers are:


  • More workplace flexibility will be demanded by new highly skilled workers, but most workers will also accept the need to work longer total hours.
  • The “workplace” for any given job is likely to continue to spread over multiple time zones or continents, with workers connecting through a growing range of media channels.
  • There will be a greater premium placed on knowledge workers who ask constructive questions concerning an employer’s mission, as well as their customers, market values, desired results, and evolving marketing and business plans.
  • Workers and managers will focus more on simplifying workloads versus just getting it all done, which reduces the risk of missing critical innovation opportunities.
  • Managers will promote health and wellness programs that focus on helping workers quit smoking, lose weight, or deal with depression, because healthy employees are more productive and miss fewer days because of poor health.
  • Employers will embrace less-expensive employee recruiting through social networks (this reached 94% of employers this last year, reports Jobvite.com). And hirers are relying more on critical thinking skills tests like the Collegiate Learning Assessment, rather than on just college grades and degrees to assess candidates.
  • More than 75% of U.S. employees are almost continuously looking for work while employed, and they hold nearly a dozen different jobs on average before age 35.
  • Employers are using personal reputation (strong track records) to make hiring decisions and 75% of jobseekers are using company “brand” in the same way, even accepting a lower salary to work with a desired firm.
  • Approximately one-third of Americans in the workforce (17 million workers) are freelance contractors and consultants. This means more people working from home without employer-sponsored health-care benefits.
  • And 30% of U.S. workers are on flextime when working from home (or other locations) two to three days a week. As well, some studies have found increased productivity of as much as 15%–20% for these flextime workers.
Deb Nystrom, REVELN's curator insight, February 12, 4:06 PM

Read Mikkelsen's summary by clicking on the red "Reactions" below.  There's a lot there.   A good deal of it reminds me of 20th century industrial age corporatism.

An alternative is this: 


Change in the Nature of Work: The Case For "Antiwork" and the 20 hour Work Week 


 for these reasons:    

"...we see the persistent belief that we can achieve 'full employment.' Rifkin showed empirically that this is nonsense, unless we create a lot of make-work, i.e., work for the sake of working. And that’s what, as a society, we seem to be doing. Everywhere you look there are stupid, pointless (and probably environmentally destructive) jobs."
