Author Aaron Hurst is redefining the workplace of the future around the idea that people need purpose in their lives.
Hurst, the New York-based author of “The Purpose Economy: How Your Desire for Impact, Personal Growth and Community Is Changing the World,” theorizes that the Information Technology age is giving way to a purpose-driven one as young and middle-aged workers shift away from conventional career paths toward more meaningful ones. They’re starting businesses at a breathtaking pace, and Portland is a potential hub.
Hurst will visit Portland’s Hatch Center for Innovation from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, July 9. Tickets are $12.
Portland Business Journal readers can learn more about Hurst’s views on how Portland is poised to lead the economy of the future in Friday’s weekly edition.
