The 2019 Pandemic drastically changed many aspects of work including where and how the work gets done. Many individuals and organizations modified their work location and how they accomplish various tasks relying a lot more on information and communication technologies than ever before. As the pandemic eased, organizations and individuals revisited the nature and location of work. Based on what we have seen so far and the published literature, it is likely that the future of work for many workers is different than before the pandemic. Rapid technological innovations and adoption of Generative Artificial Intelligence (GAI) types of platforms are also having major impacts on how some tasks will be performed. In this editorial, based on our literature review, personal experience and observations, we will describe what we expect to see for the foreseeable future. We will also address implications of our findings for institutions of higher education.
