Out of Office

BBC Radio 4

A new three part series for BBC Radio 4.

At a time when the world of work is rapidly changing, Ruth Barnes – who runs a small company and is herself an escapee from a traditional career – surveys the landscape. What do we now want from work? Is the corporate model broken? What will replace it? Why have 5 million of us now decided to go freelance? Can an algorithm recruit staff and why we are waving goodbye to the old grey boring office of the past?

The programmes are crammed with stories from people across the UK who are redefining their working lives

Produced by Elizabeth Burke, Susan Marling and Kim Normanton.

Broadcast Date: 5th, 12th and 19th April 2019
