The future of work and business is undergoing rapid transformation, driven by dynamic shifts in technology, the economy, climate, and demographics. Scholars emphasise the necessity for proactive adaptation to these changes to ensure the thriving of both individuals and organisations in future business landscapes. Recent research has increasingly underscored the crucial role of knowledge in fostering both individual growth and organisational innovation. Particularly, innovative knowledge is deemed essential for future success, as it can enable individuals and organisations to navigate complex environments effectively. However, gaps persist in understanding how knowledge, especially innovative knowledge, can be harnessed effectively to benefit stakeholders. This raises the need for deeper insights into its implications for individual and organisational thriving in the future of work. In this piece of writing, we showcase a series of studies that aim to theoretically and empirically address the intersection of knowledge, innovation, technology, thriving, and careers. By doing so, our intention is to ignite continued scholarly interest in enriching our understanding of how to facilitate thriving and effective individuals and organisations through a knowledge-driven approach, and consequently to spark new ways of thinking to tackle future challenges.
