Future of Work (October 17, 2020)
THIS MONTH’S MEETING
(Meeting logon info below) The Future of Work is a popular topic that tends to include related terms such as: digital disruption, gig economy, job automation, artificial intelligence and reskilling the workforce. But what exactly is the “Future of Work”? Is it the latest industry fad? Is it a “singular thing?” Should it be considered a fait accompli? The reality is that the future state of the “Future of Work” continues to evolve … seemingly daily … which is one reason why there are so many questions about it.
As the potential disruption is so great, some companies have started formal efforts to establish their own “Future of Work” strategies to gain insights on potential organizational changes. But the challenge is even GREATER for the individual worker, who needs to figure out how to “Keep Pace” with the “Future of Work” on their own, due in large part to a lack of specific or tangible guidance. Until now.
In this brand-new presentation for 2020, George Pace will share his research and insights to date on the “Future of Work”, where he will cover:
- The newly developed “Keep Pace” Future of Work Ecosystem
- Core Players of the “Future of Work” Ecosystem which include: the individual, society of business, and technology
- The SKILLS intersection (there are 8) where we will discuss: future of work skills and recommended activities to obtain those skills
There will also be a video “surprise” in the weeks prior to the presentation. So that you are alerted as to when those video’s appear, you are encouraged to subscribe to George’s Youtube channel at www.youtube.com/keeppace.
