About The Workback

The Workback is a magazine that offers reporting, essays, interviews, and news on the future of leadership. 

The evolution of work is accelerating rapidly, credited to changing cultural attitudes, macroeconomic forces, and business leaders proactively reshaping the workday. In lockstep, employee expectations about productivity, communication, teamwork, and goals are changing.

The how, where, when, and why of work—new ideas, production, distribution, and marketing projects—are dramatically transforming. The mission of The Workback is to chronicle and forecast those metamorphoses for leaders.


Our view

The Workback was created by business, technology, science, and culture writers and thinkers who are fascinated by how work is changing.  

We aim to explore the ideas that inspire the world’s most innovative businesses and the people that lead them.
