Which Way To The Future Of Work?

Established industry giants have a massive opportunity to digitize their businesses, and human capital holds the key.  Creating the workplace of the future is one of the few shots that old-world companies have to attract the best people in a talent market dominated by digitally native counterparts. It is also a route to increasing value from existing workforces and long- term relevance.  Whether it is working effectively alongside AI and augmented reality, adapting to new communication and social collaboration platforms, or addressing generational shifts in employee expectations – the canvas for change is wide.  Our CIO Summit this year will explore the CIO’s role in these macro shifts, and what they can do to prepare their organizations.
