Emerging technologies such as robotics, additive manufacturing, machine learning/AI, IOT, and augmented reality are changing our economies in profound ways. While these developments offer exciting new opportunities for product, process, and business model innovation, they also require a fresh approach to finding and managing the people that power the digital economy.
What changes will the advent of these technologies bring in conceptions of work, work-life integration, and economic models? How are firms acquiring and retaining talent today, and how will their strategies need to change for these evolving conditions?
Central to these discussions is the impact on the labor market, both in the U.S. and around the world. How might firms best leverage the gig economy and increasing freelance market? How will changes in technology deployment impact recruiting strategies? What role should firms play in broader workforce development? What do these shifts mean for long-term strategic partnerships between multinational corporations and academic institutions, local governments, and non-profit entities?
The Mack Institute’s Fall Conference 2018 will explore these themes from a cross-industry and multifaceted perspective, with the goal of preparing firms for the fundamental changes brought on by technology in strategic human resource management.
Key elements to be discussed will include:
The conference will also include an interactive exercise to help you work through these management approaches, providing key insights you can take back to your own firm.
