8:00-9:30am.  Did you know?  The internet of things, rapid shift to cloud and social media, will shape our future behaviors to work in a boundary-less global setting.
The world is changing and changing fast, the competitive landscape is becoming increasingly intense. The rapid digitization of business and the unnerving statistic that four out of ten Fortune 500 companies will fail as they miss this transition means the pressure placed on the workforce are changing exponentially. Traditional physical barriers of work are breaking down, and we are adapting to new ways of working and engaging with a multi-generational and virtual workforce, requiring a high 'DQ".
To compete and excel, this prompts us to rethink and restructure how work is done; reshape work environment that engages, enables and energizes; think more broadly and creatively where and how talent is sourced; Invest more heavily in retraining and reskilling; and embrace the virtual workplace and maximize mobility and flexibility.
The future of work begins now.  Embrace the paradigm shift with open-mindedness and receptivity to position HR as a trusted advisor to help the business to navigate through this change. Matthew Smith , Global Head Market Development for Internet of Things at Cisco, and Jonathan Lo , Director and Regional Practice Leader – HR Service Delivery, Towers Watson, will share with you insights on:
