Over the past year, the way we work has changed, and this transformation isn't slowing down. Across all industries, we see people embracing new ways of work — from working remotely, to starting new businesses.

In fact, on average Americans are working on average two and a half hours more per day—turning the 8-hour workday into a 10 or 14-hour workday. It’s these long hours that employees are experiencing a higher rate of burnout, great job resignation, and deterioration of mental health. Along with helping employees have a better work-life balance, Wade also believes that automation will enable people to start their own businesses, create jobs, and empower small companies to compete with large enterprises.
