The Future of Work – Emerging Generations

Leveraging opportunity and innovation amidst disruption, preparing teams for the future of work. Workers of the future will need to be lifelong learners, be agile and adaptive to changing job roles and tasks with increased automation, and be responsive to new markets. Emerging generations will not be thinking ‘job for life’ – they will be thinking about job mobility rather than job security as they will need to continue to adapt to the changing external environment. They will be looking to gain transferable skills that they can continue to build on as their career develops. In this session, Claire will unpack how you can position your organisation and teams for the future of work.
