the future of work demands cognitive & socio-behavioural skills, as well as a diverse workforce


The future of work requires less job-specific and more cognitive and socio-behavioral skills that can’t be replaced by robots. FutureThink focuses on building mindsets and skills that will drive future success through innovation, productivity and a culture of collaboration.


Furthermore, it’s been repeatedly proven that diversity is one of the most important factors when it comes to boosting workplace culture & performance. A culture of equality has been discovered to be a powerful multiplier of creativity and development - the most equal cultures have a six-fold higher innovation mindset than the least equal cultures.


"Respect for diversity doesn’t just make a happier workplace, it improves productivity and is good for the business.” - Jeanette Purkis

“We here at FutureThink transform organizations all around the world. To create an innovative and future-proof work culture, organizations need to invest in diverse teams & ideas, and 'T-Shaped people' with less job-specific and more cognitive and socio-behavioral skills. We are proud to partner with the female factor to empower the next generation of female leaders to get their seat at the table by building mindsets and power skills that will drive future success.” says Marie Burell, VP of Growth Strategy of FutureThink.


“At the female factor, we're on a quest to change the way people perceive and think about leadership. Women possess some of the critical future-of-work skills required to bring about the necessary change in our global economy, and increasing their role in key roles is more important than ever. We want to make personalized leadership preparation more available to the next generation of decision-makers by working with FutureThink." explains Mahdis Gharaei, CEO at the female factor.


Together, FutureThink and the female factor are actively working to build women's skills and mindsets, supporting working women to expand their leadership capabilities to claim their seat at the table and thus driving diversity in leading organisations everywhere.
