The Future Worker

It’s estimated that 75% of the US workforce will be made up of millennials by 2030. This generational shift will transform both the demographic and mindset of the workforce into one that is truly diverse. Organisations and their leaders need to prepare for this shift – physically and psychologically – whilst also providing for the needs of their current people. WORKTECH will address emerging trends such as designing for an aging workforce, omni-learning, neurodiversity, work/life blur, purpose and wellbeing.

Smart Environments and Their Impact on a Bionic Company

To make the most of the abundant opportunities in the digital age, companies must become bionic—they must weave together new technologies with human capabilities to power growth, innovation, efficiency, resilience, and advantage. These bionic companies will be purpose driven institutions of continuous learning. Attracting, retaining, and empowering the curious minds required to thrive in this environment will require a new approach to creating an effective workplace environment.
