Work and qualified workers in France in 2050 [Scenario] by Sylvia Marie d'Albertas, Sarah de Barthès de Montfort, Guillaume Angué, Fabien Azoulay, Ronan de Pins

2009-12-10

The authors were part of the “Alternative Management” third year program in HEC in 2009.

They are always consistent, logical and enlightening if we look for a sharper analysis of the current work market and modern capitalism. The scenarios play with the three main dimension of work (economic, social and spiritual) and show how important the value we give to work can be for skilled workers.
