DECONSTRUCTING THE FUTURE OF WORK: DISTILLING THE HYPE TO CREATE MEANINGFUL IMPACT FOR YOUR ORGANIZATION

Every day we see something around the Future of Work, the 4th Industrial Revolution or “The Robots are coming!” Whilst understanding external trends and the emergence of technology as a driver for both organisational strategy and workforce change is critical, organizations often get caught in the hype. Without looking at these trends within their own context, organisations have a high risk of misplaced effort and investment in the wrong workforce initiatives.

We will share insights into how organizations can successfully apply the principles of Strategic Workforce Planning (SWP) to align your workforce to meet the needs of future of work, and why SWP is the way for HR to truly drive the path to transformation and organisational effectiveness. In this session we will cover:

  • How the ability to model workforce needs is critical for executive alignment and accelerates action around the workforce
  • Why planning is required to address trends like the gig economy and freelancers
  • Why it is the social responsibility of employers to undertake SWP
