The Future of Work: Developing productive, sustainable, and socially-inclusive work models in the face of rapid technological change and value shifts
7.30 - 9.30am, Thursday 13 June 2019, Stamford Plaza, Auckland
The world of work is changing beneath us. Widespread connectivity, increased automation, and emerging technologies, together with shifting demographics and changing values, are disrupting individual roles, moving work practice boundaries, blurring the nature of work and traditional models of employment and rewards, and challenging established business strategy.
Our speakers will discuss:
• How rapid technological change and disruption is changing the workforce and impacting strategic planning and risk management
• Embracing and adopting technology and the digital culture, building capability, and promoting employee voice – opportunities and benefits for businesses of all sizes
• The evolution of workforces and workplaces, organising for the future, and navigating the transition
• The reskilling imperative
• Enhancing productivity and engaging and empowering your workforce across flexible work arrangements and distributed workplaces
