The COVID-19 crisis has created huge disruption for business; and as restrictions ease, fresh challenges will emerge. Yet to focus solely on the current pandemic-related disruption is to miss the longer-term trends, and greater opportunities, around the world of work.
How will businesses adapt in the face of advancing automation and the challenges and possibilities created by the nexus of 5G telephony, artificial intelligence, quantum computing and the internet of things? What will change for workers and the employment “contract” as well as how and where work gets done? What will organizations do to build a performance culture in a distributed, tech-driven environment?
By attending this webcast, viewers will be able to answer the following questions:
- Will automation, and the need for workers capable of managing automated systems, become so critical to the success of companies that having tech-trained CEOs and other senior leaders will be the norm?
- How can companies create environments in which workers can thrive and be increasingly productive? What are the risks of failing to create such environments?
- Employee health and safety, post-COVID-19, ranges far beyond accidents at work to include workers’ mental health and broader wellbeing. What can companies do to help individuals avoid anxiety, depression and burnout? Are such policies key to recruiting and retaining the right staff?
- Will corporate purpose be a casualty of the COVID-19 crisis, or - more likely - will the need for companies to find their purpose and link that to strategy become essential? How will they build a culture to support this?
