The Future of Work: Planning for Tomorrow’s Workforce
Speaker: Bernard Salt AM, Managing Director, The Demographics Group
The way we work in the future will look vastly different to today's landscape. Globally, it's predicted that the workplaces of tomorrow will be much more mobile, agile and connected as technology changes how and where work is done. In fact, this trend is underway with increasing numbers of people working in the ‘gig economy’ where portfolio careers feature, people work more flexibly, and many work virtually or remotely. The workforce and workplace as we know it is dramatically shifting and it's clear we are entering a time of significant change. Join Bernard as he discusses the new growth areas and what opportunities will arise from this shift.
