The Future of Work isn't Next: It's NOW

An unprecedented reinvention of work is happening. Technology is drastically changing how workforces and workplaces function. Simultaneously, organizations are going from silos to team-based. Robotics processes are freeing people up to spend more time on more human elements. Employees and leadership must adapt to these changes through profound transformation. As companies will increasingly be serving multiple talent groups (permanent employees, contingent workers, robotic process automation and artificial intelligence), effective integrated talent management programs will be critical. 

In this session, George Brooks, Americas Leader for EY People Advisory Services (PAS), will explore current talent challenges and depict how organizational leadership, the workplace, and the workforce of the future will look. They will explain the future impact on the economics of employees and business, as well as strategies for workforce planning within these talent groups (permanent employees, contingent workers, and robots) and the main attributes of the digital leader of the future. Finally, they will discuss the importance of getting back to human. 

1. Learn Strategies for workforce planning within key talent groups.

2. Learn about main attributes of the digital leader of the future.

3. Learn about team ability, integration, adaptability and empathy.
