As we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, the three-part PBS series Future of Work explores the accelerated pace of change in the workplace and the potential for long-term impact on workers, employers, educators and communities across our country.

Prior to the start of the pandemic, a team of award-winning filmmakers at public media powerhouse GBH had begun exploring the experiences of American workers across industries, generations, geographies and pay levels. The resulting multi-platform series, Future of Work, debuted this summer on streaming and broadcast platforms.

Future of Work raises critical questions and explores compelling diverse individual experiences,” said GBH executive producer and series creator Denise Dilanni. “We provide expert perspectives to help us understand what the future holds for the U.S. workforce and why that matters in today’s world.”

Is the right to work a human right? Is the future of work about entrenched haves and have-nots? What are the merits of college versus training programs in preparing for the jobs of tomorrow? How do we protect and preserve employment opportunities that sustain families, communities and the nation – fundamental aspects of the American Dream?

Future of Work explores these and other questions with profiles of millennial, single-parent and other workers, in addition to leading economic, employment, training and technology experts.

The three-part broadcast series is now available to stream on the PBS App on your phone, tablet, Roku, Apple TV, other digital TV devices and many Smart TVs. Viewers can also stream the Future of Work digital series on PBS Digital Studios and PBS Voices YouTube Channel.
