There is a shift that has been happening over the last five years in the way we work, the way we think about work and the skill sets that are required of the workforce. This shift has been accelerated by the impact of Covid-19 but is driven by the emerging technologies of the future – think A1, Quantum Computing, IoT and Blockchain – as well as forward thinkers who are looking for new and better ways of working. The questions we are looking to answer in this talk will be addressing both of these factors.

On the one hand we want to explore what the future holds for required skills vs. required roles and titles in a company? And how will this impact of perception of ‘careers’? How does well-being and the feeling of belonging impact the workforce in a company and how can companies impact their employees if they focus on these areas? What will the War of Talent look like in the future?

On the other hand, we will look at new and upcoming business models that will impact the way we work, and the way companies view their employees. For example

What will be the impact of ‘Outsourced Workforce’? How will AI vs. People pan out and will we all be replaced by robots in 2023?

Topic: Creating a 100% human future of work

In March of this year many elements of the future of work arrived overnight, with changes we have been inching towards for years arriving overnight. Amongst all the challenges, we have seen companies showing extraordinary levels of adaptability, innovation, resilience and compassion. We now have an opportunity to reimagine work for the future. To rethink the role of leaders. To discard some of the old ways of doing things and outdated systems in which we function.

Within the span of a few weeks, our work environment has drastically changed. Working from home, connecting with your teams and clients via video conference platforms, and not enjoying the ‘real world’ face to face interaction has become a new reality. And this is just the beginning!

COVID-19 has catapulted companies, organizations, and governments into the digital age at a pace that nobody could have ever imagined. The future which the world was anticipating pre-COVID-19 doesn’t exist anymore. We are marching towards a new future. In this new future, technology will play a more critical role than we have ever imagined. While video conferences and meetings were something, we would rather shy away, it is today a new normal that won’t go away.

How will we communicate at work? What technologies will be introduced in the near future? Are artificial intelligence, blockchain, and 5g still some of the most important tech trends that will shape the way we work in the future? Will wearables be the solution of the future or do we need to have computer chips in our bodies to stay relevant in this new future.
