The Future of Work: Frontline Challenges in an Era of Digital Transformation


August 2018 | Research Report

Based on the insights of more than 250 C-suite and senior level executives who attended The Future of Work: The Strategic HR Joint Council Meeting in May 2018, this report outlines the future of work and the evolutionary impact digital transformation is having, and will have, on business organizations from the perspective of HR executives. Among the insights: HR must learn to disrupt itself before it is disrupted, otherwise past success may become our failure. Many HR organizations are framing questions, challenges, and opportunities based on current paradigms and outdated business models instead of future paradigms and new ways of doing business.
