"Strategies for an Unknown Future: How to Prepare your Workforce for Jobs that Don’t Exist Yet"

Technology gets more sophisticated every day – what are the implications for the workforce?  How will smart technologies change the way work gets done?  Virtual or augmented reality, machine thinking and learning, voice-response tools, drones, robotics and more change the nature of the jobs themselves and the ways in which they might be accomplished. This session reviews some of the HR/IT issues needed to keep pace for the future.
Our topics for discussion include:
• Who moved my…….typewriter?  How tech has changed work in the recent past.
• How different types of automated intelligence will affect how we work
• Disintermediation of human-provided services
• The HRIT journey: key themes to prepare for tomorrow
