What is the Working World Podcast?

The Working World podcast, focuses on the evolution of the global workforce and mobility trends, highlighting how technological advancements, policy changes, and digital transformation are reshaping the landscape of work, and the way professionals engage in the world.

We delve into the transformation of traditional global mobility programs and explore future predictions, emphasising diversity, inclusion, and the impact of a growing remote workforce enabled by technological advances that foster remote and distributed teams.

Our aim is to provide insights into the strategies for navigating these changes, fostering a more flexible, adaptive, and inclusive working environment.
