Humanity is at a crossroads with technology, which promises an unprecedented quantum leap in productivity. Increasingly intelligent machines have been automating blue-collar jobs for the past 30 years. Now we’re seeing white-collar professions, which were thought to be safe, such as legal assistants, architects and financial advisors begin to be supplanted and jobs rapidly being ‘destroyed’.
90% of organizations anticipate their businesses will be disrupted by technology, only 11% feel like they’re ready to adapt to the digital age. What jobs will disappear? What skills will be needed by the workforce of the future? What will drive the economy in 2030, without leaving millions behind without the means to earn a living?
At the same time, we are currently living a paradox where a “war for talent” is raging and chronic shortages in many areas and professions mean that organisations must explore new dynamics and ways of working. Yet some of these models appear to put their very own human capital and intellectual property at risk. These new economy organisations are frequently distributed across the planet and don’t subscribe to the traditional concept of turning up at an office and spending the working day alongside colleagues. The need for flexible and intelligent workforce management has never been greater.
This event is a think future partner event.
