Employers are invited to attend this conference for a fresh take on the future of work and how to redesign your workplace.
Attendees will hear from two dynamic speakers: Dr. Neil Carlson and Dr. Peter Boumgarden.
Dr. Neil Carlson, Director of the Center for Social Research will present us with visualizations of data from a project on “The Future of Work” conducted on behalf of Talent 2025. The study results shed light on the pace of net job losses to automation and computerization and offer an actionable path forward through shared attention to rising demand for “soft skills.”
Dr. Peter Boumgarden is the Director of the Koch Center for Family Business and the Faculty Director for the Center for Experiential Learning at Washington University in St. Louis (Olin Business School). He will share his insights on employee preferences around work, and how such preferences do or do not effectively map onto the kind of innovation required in the new economy. He will also provide innovative methods for restructuring the workplace to be prepared for the coming disruptions we are likely to see over the next 5-10 years.
The registration deadline has passed.
