Prolonging working life through ICT: the role of crowdsourcing

3 Mar 2016, Warwick

Prolonging working life through ICT: the role of crowdsourcing This one day seminar explored how crowdsourcing is enabling people, especially older workers, to remain part of the labour force. The development of a fast and reliable internet, new technologies, new online payment systems and changes in work structure have driven a shift to new forms of labour exchange such as the outsourcing of work online or ‘crowdsourcing’. The one day seminar discussed how crowdsourcing has changed the boundary between work and home, enabling older people to remain part of the labour force and perhaps achieve a new work-life balance. It provided a valuable opportunity for knowledge exchange between academics, policy-makers and key stakeholders in the industry around evaluating and supporting this opportunity to extend working lives through ICT.
