How are today’s technological advances shaping the workplace of the future? What kind of workplace will tomorrow’s workers expect and demand? Will globalisation continue apace or will localisation be key? How will businesses need to change and adapt their models to survive and thrive? What will HR Management look like in the future? What will the legal challenges be?
With many staff being able to work as effectively away from the office as in it, information security and technology become increasingly important and businesses which retain a traditional approach to working and HR management and which don’t build these issues and challenges into their planning today risk failing to attract tomorrow’s talent and losing productivity and competitiveness in the future.
Together with our guest speakers, we hope to answer some of these questions and perhaps pose some others, to help you to think about the future of work, strategic and legal considerations and the impact of technological change.
Mark Skilton – Global Director in Strategy, Global Infrastructure Services at CapGemini will discuss how technology is changing the way we work.
Matthew Thorogood and Christian Murray, HR Services Partners at PwC will talk about people management for the future and the results of PwC’s global survey of 3,000 “millennials” from the US, China and the UK who have just joined the workforce, discovering their views and expectations of the future of work.
David Williams – Partner and Kathryn Dooks – Employment Associate at Kemp Little will then talk about the legal challenges for HR Managers and practitioners in the future.
