101 Building a Workforce for the Future

8:15 AM - 9:30 AM Wednesday, July 17

Technology is transforming old industries and creating new job categories that didn't exist as recently as five years ago. Artificial intelligence, machine learning, genetic engineering, and the Internet of Things are forces that will change the future nature of work. Which jobs will be replaced by machines, or end all together? Just how important is digital literacy to future success? The shape of the future workforce will be the result of complex, changing, and competing forces. Some of these forces are certain, but the speed at which they will unfold is hard to predict.

In this session, you will learn how organizations must prepare for a future we can't necessarily predict. How will your talent needs change, and what do you need to do to stay ahead? How do you build skills that not only allow your business to grow today, but assure that it is well-poised for tomorrow?
