What if companies had no employees? @TheEconomists proposes a hypothetical scenario for what *may* be in the year 2030

This change sounds scarier than it really is. It holds great benefits both for you and for IIM. The company will be able to respond more nimbly to a rapidly changing marketplace.

If you have any questions, please ask Irma, our human-resources chatbot.
