The Future of Jobs, Work and Working
29 - 30 October 2018
Day One: 16:00 - 18:30/ Day Two: 08:30 - 15:00
IESE Business School
Day One: 16:00 – 18:30 (followed by dinner)
Day Two: 08:30 – 15:00
Who is it for?
Those involved in the development of organisation and people strategy, and likely to have concerns with availability and deployment of talent.
Largely driven by technology and demographics, the future of work is changing and there will be a major hollowing out of jobs in the coming years. But what does this mean in practice and how will it impact organisations and their current people? What do we need to be thinking about in terms of strategy and the key skills we will require, and how we might respond to an uncertain future.
Developing effective strategies in an ever-changing geopolitical, economic and social environment continues to be a challenge for all organisations, becoming evermore difficult as the landscape evolves speedily and often, incoherently. Mike Rosenberg from IESE Business School will set the scene before The Economist’s Tom Standage discusses technology and scenarios for the future.
Researcher Wendy Hirsh will discuss credible and robust, yet flexible, workforce planning systems and what can realistically be done.
Drawing on his experiences in high tech, long-lead time project management and manufacturing organisations, John Whelan from BAE Systems will share his views on how technology has changed jobs thus far, how organisations have responded and how he sees this playing out in the future.
First day of the workshop will be followed by dinner at El Principal del Eixample, Provença 286 - 288 08008 Barcelona.
