MIT SMR and Deloitte continue their research on the future of workforce for a third consecutive year in 2022.

In 2020, the research team focused on opportunity marketplaces: internal platforms that help organizations develop, engage, and retain talent. In 2021, the team published on workforce ecosystems: structures that consist of interdependent actors, from within the organization and beyond, working to pursue both individual and collective goals. In 2022, the team further explores how management practices must evolve to oversee a workforce comprised of a varied set of actors.
