As often happens, this discussion has moved away from reality and into speculation.
The original question was "What will work life look like when we leave the ego at home?" The question itself is speculative, plus it includes the erroneous idea that ego is an object that can be left somewhere.
The question would have been more accurate if asked "what will the world of work look like when self-centered thinking is absent?". Yet this is still speculative, and invites guesswork.
My initial posting in this thread still stands as a general pointer. But it requires that egoic thinking cease before each of us is able to approach the topic genuinely.

It is this type of thinking that has created the problems in the world that we see today.
