Advancing future thinking

FWCI is an independent, non-profit research think tank and training & advisory institute advancing futures thinking and helping our members build resilience and make the best of the challenges and opportunities in the shifting boundaries of the new era of workplace.

A deeper understanding of the evolution of work and the workplace

FWCI ’s mission is to offer HR practitioners and business leaders the opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of the evolution of work and the workplace, and provide actionable insights, and a quality Collaborative Engagement mechanism by which leaders, organisations, and communities aid decision making on critical management issues as to gain mastery over their actions.

The quality mechanism is defined by 3 key attributes

We work by challenging perceptions

We work by challenging perceptions in developing and promoting concepts and best practices for enterprise management & leadership that foster Collaborative Engagement and sustainable enterprise development. 

A far-reaching approach by tapping diverse internal and external networks of people and ideas – academics, researchers, and experts with insight into latest trends and developments, such as Acas, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and international institutions including the European Parliament, International Labour Organization (ILO) and the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (Eurofound).

We pool knowledge, contacts and resources, share information, insight, innovation, networking, and creativity to enhance long term competitiveness and growth.

And we would welcome would invite the widest possible participation and contributions to the reflection on the future of work.

The challenge is to emulate New Ways of Work best practice and adopt them more widely

We share business and organisational narratives in trying to identify major forces, anticipate future trends, innovations, transformative disruptions and disconnects that are shaping the landscape of the future.

We help our members develop deeper insights and make faster decisions to better position themselves for the future.

We empower our members with feasible initiatives on working and living that reshape the employment relationship and change the way how things get done.

We believe in people and their ability to create positive change in their organisations

The Institute gives a strong voice to the concerns and interests of employment services providers, their managers, and clients, by advocating policies that promote the concept of Collaborative Engagement, as an effective framework for more profitable outcomes.

We help their companies adopt employee-centered approaches to supporting health and wellbeing and succeed in the rapidly changing world of work. To createCollaborative Engagement capacity in order to focus on the collective ambition and create an Amazing Place to Work.

We design prototype operating platforms, work-life solutions and thinking-ahead strategies, to support a more productive and happy workforce and generate value for the next generation collaborative enterprise.
