Introducing WorkPlace, a podcast on where and how we work, with host Sydney Allen-Ash, Lane Founders, Clinton Robinson and Kofi Gyekye and special guests. In each episode, listeners are immersed in a possible future of work, followed by a discussion exploring alternative visions of how things might unfold.
Is there such a thing as work-life balance? And to what extent can work and life be integrated into a dignified and meaningful existence? Radha Mistry joins Sydney Allen-Ash and Lane founders, Clinton Robinson and Kofi Gyekye for a conversation about a future workplace called “The Substrate” – a membership network of interdependent support spaces.
How do organizations remember, think, decide, and act? How can we design and plot time to rearrange organizational rhythms and enable new ways of coordinating across scales, cycles, and tempos? Shaun Stewart joins Sydney Allen-Ash and Lane founders, Clinton Robinson and Kofi Gyekye as we listen in on a new employee’s first day using Quartz – an all-sensing company clock that time-tunes tasks according to employees’ wellbeing.
How will the workforce shift towards climate adaptation? Is the future of work all about climate resilience and/or carbon mitigation projects? Edward Burtynsky joins Sydney Allen-Ash and Lane founders, Clinton Robinson and Kofi Gyekye for a conversation on possibilities for future roles in light of global climate crises, environmental degradation, and resource depletion.
What happens to the ways we work when we have digital-physical hybrid spaces, hybrid-companies governed by automation, and hybrid people – virtual characters, interacting as though they’re real? Rahaf Harfoush joins Sydney Allen-Ash and Lane founders, Clinton Robinson and Kofi Gyekye for a conversation on mixed-realities in the workplace as we listen to a futures true crime podcast questioning who’s at fault when an automated organizational system goes rogue.
