FOW21: FROM CONFUSION TO CLARITY AND THE "GREAT RESIGNATION"

Thank you to our key sponsor, IBM, our Center of Excellence Leadership team, and you, our members, for making this event a success!
 

With climbing attrition rates, increasing salaries, the pandemic drastically propelled us into a present that not many were prepared for and while the “flex space” movement isn’t new, we are experiencing a new normal that even the forecasters couldn’t have predicted.

Today’s technology means working from home has become the standard M.O. for companies across the board, but what will happen next? Advances in Artificial intelligence (AI) and automation are leading to complex digital transformations, are you prepared?

We’ll explore what this uncertainty and complexity mean for your workplace, your teams, your partnerships and your bottom line as well as arm you with the tools and knowledge you need to not just survive, but thrive in these volatile times.

THE FUTURE IS FLUID: DESIGNING A WORKFORCE STRATEGY FOR THE NEXT NORMAL

               

 

Tammy Browning, President, KellyOCG

Despite the doomscrolling and dire headlines about empty offices and unfilled jobs, Tammy Browning is optimistic that companies can emerge healthier in the post-COVID era. Her work with some of the world’s largest, most complex corporations—along with in-depth research on how global leaders are adapting their workforce strategies—reveals an eagerness to re-imagine where, when, how, and by whom (or what) work is done. This dynamic session covers fresh insights and action plans that equip today’s talent buyers and suppliers to step into the next normal with confidence.

The data is in. COVID-19 accelerated a shift to remote work and virtual meetings and it looks like some WFH or a hybrid model is here to stay. Face-to-face business may be permanently replaced by virtual meetings. Digital transactions have become more convenient and efficient. Inclusion and diversity have become major initiatives for many organizations. Companies are using Automation and AI to adapt to the new realities and planning to implement even more technologies. This panel of experts will walk you through the data and what it means for future workforce strategies.
