The future is here. Be ready!

The world of work is changing and in 2020 our workforce’s will look much different than they do today. 2020 is less than 15 months away. Actually, make that 64 Mondays.

Dynamic Time

Join ITP and Lori Hand, Public Sector Leader, Global Business Services, IBM New Zealand where she’ll be sharing global research on the future of work and discussing the challenges and opportunities this dynamic time presents.

With the emergence of disrupting technologies, new jobs and skills will inevitably be required, affecting all of us. Historical events, globalisation and advances and challenges in technology will allow for cultural developments, as well as changes in the construction of our communities and our perspectives on technology.

Businesses must be vigilant to inevitable shifts in employee demands and adapt. In order to prosper and accelerate our businesses and inspire employees, we must understand these changes, or be disrupted by them.
