From rapid adoption of automation and AI technologies to demographic shifts and different consumer pulls, the world is changing at a rapid pace and with it the workplace, the workforce and the nature of work itself. We speak of the 4th industrial revolution or the 3rd cognitive revolution; a new era that has fundamentally altered the way we live, work and relate to one another. Yet, as billions of people connect around the world, social inequality is on the rise with the widening gap between rich and poor. Today, we face a future of unlimited possibilities and gruelling uncertainties. New modes of employment are on the rise, with gig, sharing, or platform economies; Progressive models of organising are gaining in popularity with the move from hierarchy to wirearchy and a marked emphasis on horizontalism, self-management and agility. What’s more, the traditional boundaries between home and office, night and day, work and leisure are blurring…
What does the future hold?
In this dynamic landscape, this conference will be the space to engage around the various facets of work through a critical and reflective lens. Together, we will re-imagine the future of work, how it will be organised, and our very own current approaches.
We will tackle the following questions:
- How will work be organised in the future and how will that shape our organisations?
- What is the meaning of work, and can we imagine it beyond success, recognition and personal achievement?
- How can people be better equipped for that future? What are their most relevant assets and skills and how can we grow them?
- How will these futures affect the practice of leadership and change agency?
- What can we do today to re-imagine and reshape our organisations, our societies and our own work?
We are very fortunate to have academics, researchers and practitioners passionate about reshaping work, organisations and our societies, joining us to facilitate diverse and interactive sessions.
