Digital technology is having a profound effect on the 21st century workplace. It is changing the way we work, the way we manage, where we work, how we organize, and how we communicate. Fundamentally, how we work in the future will be more networked, more mobile, more team- based, more project-based, and more flexible. The test will be to ensure it is not more complex or unmanageable.


Hear our Industry speakers discuss the drivers and challenges for the workforce of the future.
