This symposium covers key issues associated with the “future of work,” including globalization and culture change, workplace technology (e.g., machine learning and artificial intelligence), employee withdrawal/turnover, and virtual and remote work arrangements. Discussions focus on the (observed and anticipated) effects of these trends on individual and collective outcomes such as well-being and performance along with identifying areas where more research is needed.

Ernst Fehr shows that individuals cluster around three global, fundamentally distinct, preference types characterized as altruistic, inequality averse, and predominantly selfish—with the selfish type typically comprising a minority of individuals.
Noam Sobel describes his findings on mechanisms of human chemosignaling in both health and disease. Based on these findings, he argues that, in contrast to common notions, humans are highly olfactory animals, and body-odors dominate our social behavior.
