Do you live in a world of business jargon, personality tests, and team-building exercises?
Welcome to work in the modern economy, where the climate is cultish and management fads rule. Silicon Valley workplace culture has filtered through to other industries, dehumanising our working practices and putting tech in the driving seat. In a rapidly transforming world where entire industries are collapsing, companies scrabble to reprogramme their workforce to adapt and survive, conducting large-scale experiments in organisational behaviour; in short, we’re all their lab rats.
Writer, technology analyst and Silicon Valley satirist Dan Lyons explores why and how the world of work is changing, and how we can recoup dignity and fairness for modern workers.
