Workplace Application:
Attendees will review the external world forces shaping the global workforce over the next decade and what you need to do to get your workforce ready for that future. 

Most people are inclined to put their energy into dealing with what's right in front of them-that is, what needs to be done today. But when it comes to your future workforce, prioritizing the here and now is not the optimal strategy. To keep pace with the anticipated demands and priority shifts of the next decade, you must start actively engaging in developing your workforce today.

More so than any group before it, the workforce of the next decade will be shaped by technological innovation, demographic shifts, and the long-term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. In this inspiring session, Val will review critical employment data, unpack looming technology trends, and examine employee sentiment and other issues that will shape our future workforces. Going beyond the numbers, she maps out how leaders can combine this information with key leadership skills in order to engage their current workforce and motivate them to up their game.

Learning Objectives:

  • The changing landscape of customer expectations and where your current employee base stands in readiness to meet their needs.
  • Key factors that will shape the workforce over the next decade.
  • How to respond proactively to the growing influence of AI, digitization technology, and connectivity tools within your organization.
  • Using critical data analytics and metrics to predict performance and foster agility in HR and other management processes.
  • Reimagining how work is accomplished in a gig economy.

In-person session offerings are on a first-come, first-served basis.
