    The future of work & HRM

    More and more repetitive work and basic tasks are being automated. It’s important that we rethink our roles and learn new skills.

    How do we get the employee of the future on board and how do we change people and organisations?

    What will our jobs and work in general look like in the future?

    New working models will emerge, the quantified workplace will precisely measure our performance, and existing hierarchies will start disappearing.

    21st-century skills will be indispensable in the future and we’ll increasingly transition from permanent contracts to the gig economy.

    Thanks to VR and hologram technology, we will be able to work remotely with people from all over the globe.
