Concordia and Postmates, the leading on-demand marketplace delivery service, announce a 2018 Programming Sponsorship to establish cross-sector solutions and discussions to address the future of our workforce.
With internet platforms and online technology creating new workforce opportunities in labor markets around the world, and with the rapid transition towards artificial intelligence and automation, traditional employment models, and the social compacts that support workers, are begging new configurations. As this evolution continues, the need for labor laws, worker protections, and flexible work opportunities to keep pace with technological revolutions is more crucial than ever before. The programming sponsorship between Concordia and Postmates will provide a robust examination of today’s ever-changing employment models and establish cross-sector solutions towards stackable and portable benefits in order to address urgent needs in the future of work.
Through the international platform of the Concordia Annual Summit, the partnership will amplify the thought leadership of Postmates, and its peers, along with the sector’s technological & policy work in the technological innovation space. By exchanging the insights of industry actors with both domestic and international regulatory officials, the partnership will highlight key recommendations for the evolution of employment and establish an industry-wide baseline consensus regarding benefit mechanisms that occur as a result of future of work developments around the world.
