Session: The Future of Work: how trends, multiple generations, and a pandemic are redefining work itself
Before the pandemic, workplace transformation was already underway. In fact, many organizations were embracing a future that looked very different to what we called “work” even just 5 years ago. Four generations in the workforce required meeting different work styles. Casual and open workspaces became the norm. And implementing integrated workflows was critical to getting stuff done. Allowing people to work where, how, and when they wanted was the plan for more and more companies.
But now, in response to a global pandemic, we’ve gone through five years of transformation in five months. Employees are all mostly remote, we’ve adapted to this new way of working, and businesses are now asking what’s next. We must now look to the future… and discuss what work even is moving forward.
Leveraging her experience in managing a fully remote team at Cisco, and marketing Webex collaboration technology, Aruna brings unique insight on what is key to enabling businesses to keep thriving. In this talk, she will explore different workstyles and generational considerations as well as the three pillars necessary for a successful work in the future: technology, the concept of the workspace, and the culture change required.
