London, UK, 11 May 2011: The Shift by Professor Lynda Gratton, professor of management practice at London Business School and founder of The Hot Spots Movement, is published today (12 May). Grattons new book, The Shift, examines what work will look like in 2025, both from a corporate and individual perspective.
 
The Shift takes as its lead the idea of what work will look like in 2025, and how we need to adapt to meet this radically different environment. Gratton says that there are five forces that will fundamentally change the way we work: globalisation society demography technology and energy.
 
She explains: The forces of globalisation and technology can lead to fragmentation, loneliness, isolation and a feeling of exclusion from the global talent pool. So, how do we turn this change into a positive, in order to lead great lives, filled with creativity, productivity and excitement?
 
Gratton is quick to remind us that, if we do not adapt our working ways, the workplace of the future could be a very lonely place. She explains: Work is a defining, all-consuming part of our lives. The book details key shifts that we, as individuals, can make to prepare ourselves for this fast-moving world of work.
 The findings in The Shift are based on the findings of two Research Consortiums on the Future of Work, organised and led by The Hot Spots Movement, Grattons team that examine innovation and team work in the workplace. The second consortium, which has just ended, brought together companies and executives from 44 companies from around the world.
