Winning the 20's: The Organization of the Future

It’s a bad time to be average or ordinary as a company, with less growth, lower returns, and diminished organisational longevity increasingly common. We are seeing a polarisation of performance, and the profitability gap between winners and losers is widening. Technology is driving change at multiple levels, bringing us new processes and efficiency standards, new offerings and business models, new ways of organising within and across companies, and new ways of leading and managing. Given this context, there is no time for complacency. So, as the next decade approaches, business leaders must look beyond near-term pressures and understand at a more fundamental level what will separate the winners from the losers in the 2020s. To prepare for new competitive imperatives, leaders will need to go beyond simply adopting artificial intelligence (AI) or other technologies—instead, as Martin discussed in his session, they must fundamentally reinvent the enterprise through the lens of technology. Martin discussed several imperatives for designing the organisations of the future.

KPMG - Talent Management for the Future

KPMG’s masterclass explored how organisations can better meet employee and business expectations around workforce in the turbulent world of Industry 4.0 – amidst a shortage of top talent. In the interactive workshop, delegates looked at the use of simple but defined geometric shapes to develop free-flowing, colourful artwork – focussing on how this applies to HR building blocks to deliver brilliant employee experience. Delegates then looked at the effect of Industry 4.0 on the future of work and total workforce management, particularly the changing needs of all types of ‘workers’ and the needs of the business.

CRFCast - HR Insights from the Corporate Research Forum: Digital Culture: How Technology is Changing the Way we Communicate, Work & Behave with Rahaf Harfoush

Technology is fundamentally changing how we connect with each other, leading to new behaviours, belief systems and social norms. However, the ethical and moral standards that determine how to behave are not keeping pace. In conversation with Digital Anthropologist Rahaf Harfoush, we discuss what the evolving digital culture means for relationships at work and beyond, how organisations need to adapt to an age of information overload, and the implications for HR.
