Profound technological, economic, social and demographic changes are reshaping work - is governance ready to meet the challenge of the Fourth Industrial Revolution?
Our expert panel will discuss key factors driving the shift towards the unknown ‘future of work’ and explore the role governance has to play in preparing organisations for a very different future.
Important issues will be addressed such as; how can we create robust yet flexible workforce planning processes, how has technology changed jobs so far, what are the skills that will be required for the future, and how do we prepare for a future not yet defined?
