Technology For People | People For Technology

The Economic Times Workforce of the Future Summit


A plethora of young populace, an aging workforce, an ongoing labour shortage, lack of understanding or skill sets and a reluctance to adopt new technology are all major factors contributing to the change in workforce dynamics ofthe future. There is a substantial need to understand the challenges and chalk out adoptable solutions. With this in purview, The Economic Times is pleased to announce the next edition of The Economic Times Workforce of the Future Summit 2019 centered on the theme: Technology For People | People For Technology



The Blended Workforce: Employee + Technology

The Future of Work has already arrived with HR leaders joining hands with Technology Leaders to reinvent their workforce by efficiently matching the supply and demand of people and skills in a highly personalized way. Their partnership is all about designing technology that works for people and not because of them. Thus, technology isn't just changing workplace tools but radically reinventing the way businesses are designed, built, and run.

Performance metrics evolves exponentially, wherein measuring human performance will be in a mechanical way. Key Performance Indicators (KPI) such as efficiency, speed, accuracy, lead generation and sales performance which are widely used to measure success will be replaced with the wave of workplace game-changers such as: big data, the cloud, the Internet of Things (IoT), cognitive computing, intelligent assistants and so-called artificial intelligence (AI). These are the things that are propelling us towards a new era of automation, virtualisation and robotization.



Global Workforce Trends

According to a recent study by Gartner, HR leaders have to counter the growing trends and support corporate business ambitions, with the need to focus on key levers of improvement. Let's have a look the trends that are driving the Global Workforce.


Paris
The Hot Labour Market
The Global unemployment rates continue to decline, with the market opening critical roles driven with digital capabilities. According to Gartner TalentNeuronTM, 47% of S&P 100 job postings in 2017 were for the same 37 roles, and 90% of S&P 100 companies recruited for those same roles. With this, the strategic workforce planning is taking on a new urgency as the complexion of the workforce changes and different skill sets emerge, evolve and expire.
Paris
Digital Disruption
In this globally competitive work environment, CEOs are pursuing digital initiatives in order to capture both opportunity and to avoid being "Amazoned" away. In Gartner Digital Enterprise recent survey, 67% of business leaders agreed that if their company did not become significantly more digitalized by 2020, it would no longer be competitive. HR is under extreme pressure to lead the digital transformation of their company.
Paris

Social and Political Change
For a continuous growth of the business, HR needs a productive workforce. With structural and social challenges such as pay inequity and the #MeToo movement are directly affecting employee retention and morale. HR are now looking at reshaping executives' employment contracts.
Paris

Declining Discretionary Effort
Today, employee engagement is of extreme importance as the workforce is restless and disengaged, and few companies can claim high levels of discretionary effort or intent to stay among their employees.
