What does the future of work hold? Will AI and robots take over? Is on-demand labor the future? These are all questions that Jeff Wald has been researching for years, and today he's on the Leverage Podcast to discuss his findings with Nick. Jeff shows us how we can use data and trends from the past to predict what the future of work will look like and how we can best prepare. For entrepreneurs, this knowledge will help you allocate resources in the right places and get set up for the 4th Industrial Revolution, or as Jeff calls it, the 1st Service Revolution.
Nick and Jeff get into the nuts and bolts of labor, discussing everything from how COVID will change work trends to the proper allocation of on-demand and full-time labor, all backed by data and historical trends. But it's not all about the future of work—Nick and Jeff also discuss what it means to leave a legacy as a business owner, how Jeff and his team felt about being acquired by ADP, and a $10 million contest Jeff is running with fellow labor experts.
