The future of work offers unparalleled opportunities, but also significant challenges. Globalisation, technological progress and demographic change are having a profound impact on society and labour markets. It is crucial that policies help workers and society at large to manage the transition with the least possible disruption, while maximising the potential benefits.
The future of work is being shaped by two powerful forces: The growing adoption of artificial intelligence in the workplace, and the expansion of the workforce to include both on- and off-balance-sheet talent.
What changes could be in store for the workplace, the workforce, and the nature of work itself?
PENNY HASLAM – BBC JOURNALIST, PRESENTER & MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER
Former BBC journalist, presenter and motivational speaker Penny Haslam will teach you how to develop a stable of brand ambassadors, who are able to go out in the world and talk about your brand – in order to attract customers and candidates. So work isn’t just confined to your building or the role, there’s more to it.
With Glassdoor reviewing in place, and a noisy marketplace for brands, the work isn’t just about the er…work. How do you engender that? How can you trust people to say the right thing? What are the benefits?
You will learn and use Penny’s FACE model for concise, compelling and confident sounding communication.
We achieve so much more when we work together. Yet our obsession with ever- shortening financial goals is making us lose-sight of what is really important – the employees. Leaders are creating a caustic environment that is killing co-operation.
We need to move to a place that supports team work. We need to encourage trust and respect in each other. Thus, a supportive and well-managed workplace is better for one’s health. Autonomy and self determination breeds health and happiness.
True leadership is all about putting the lower employees first. Real leaders take care of team members and focus on their well-being.
From a converted garage in Stockport to the world’s first organisation to reach 5 million positive feedbacks on ebay, Steve Oliver will share his meteoric rise to where he is today, employing over 1,000 people.
We’re currently living in one of the most rapidly changing and disruptive periods for HR. With a multigenerational workforce, expectations of millennials, trust in leadership and popularity of new work trends, it’s difficult to keep up with it all. We need to stop refining concepts for HR that were designed for the world of today and yesterday. The world of tomorrow is going to be so much different, that current concepts (that very often are not even effective today) will be misaligned in the world of tomorrow.
Every organisation and the HR profession will be impacted; the speed and magnitude of this impact will largely be driven by an appetite for change: do you want to be ‘ahead of the curve’, maybe you want to ‘go with the flow’ or will you rather be ‘late to the party’ and learn from others or, possibly the least attractive option; do you want change to be done to you?
