Panel discussion: Good work and the future of jobs in a changing economic landscape
As socio-political and economic shifts affect the way we do business and technology changes the way we work, uncertainty about the future can only be tackled by a joint and strong commitment to creating a better society for the benefit of all – a future of work that is not only human but that also works for people, organisations and societies.
Understanding how jobs are likely to change, how the economic and political context will affect organisations, and taking action to champion good work are all key to get ready for what’s to come and to ensure a sustainable future where people and organisations can thrive.
Are we heading to a less secure economic landscape and a more precarious future of work? What’s the role of organisations and governments in ensuring a balance between disappearing jobs, new roles and reskilling? What are the key principles of good work and people empowerment that will enable organisations to thrive? Join this panel of prominent experts to find out how to make the future of work human and successful for all.
