“The majority of workers no longer relate to work with a singular focus; instead, work is just one critical priority that competes with others for attention…They have dependent children, dependent elders, or both. Their career patterns are more varied than their predecessors’; they change or interrupt their careers, work on a contingent basis, or work well past retirement age.”
