Work, the Future of Employment Speakers

Keynote, specialist and conference speakers on the future of work.

The world of work has been changing rapidly ever since the Industrial Revolution. And now it continues to change very rapidly indeed. In 2019 we would have been expecting to ask speakers to explain how automation would change the workplace; how the gender balance would change in the future; or perhaps how quickly artificial intelligence might threaten even the jobs of relatively highly paid knowledge workers. Then Covid-19 happened.

This sudden explosion of remote working and WFH was unexpected and it’s gone one longer than expected too. As Rory Sutherland explains – ‘everyone did it at the same time’ – network effects meant that adaptation and technology take-up was swift. Now after almost a year of remote there are so many questions for experts to speculate upon:

How much WFH will continue adter Covid-19
How much work will be offshored and what are the risks?
How many will return to the office and what is its future?
How do we keep work teams together?
How is the shape of HR and recruitment?
Will people commute less? – but perhaps greater distances.

Change has been swift and dramatic. We can offer people with knowledge and expertise who can help employers understand the likely futures, and help business to navigate some of the likely scenarios that business will face very soon..
