The way in which employees view work, experience work and manage work is changing, moving away from traditional manufacturing into knowledge and gig work, where industries are dependent on the knowledge, commitment and motivation of employees to succeed. The global pandemic changed workplaces, ways of working not always for the better, and employees experienced challenges such as managing work life balance, home and work boundaries blurring as they juggled work and home responsibilities.  Societies have also changed though at times social roles impact negatively creating barriers for some groups such as men and women entering what are perceived to be gender work roles.


CHOOSE ONE challengein ONE country in ONE industry based on the broad categories below.


  1. Barriers to entry or progression in an industry
  2. Managing work life balance from a leader and follower perspective.
  3. Work life boundaries blurring when working remotely.
  4. Lifelong learning and development in the face of changing technologies.
