This session will look at where work, the workforce, and the workplace have been in the past, and where current research is pointing for the future... Work 4.0! 

When cavemen went to work each day, the impact and rewards were quick and clear. Today, that’s not always the case... and it continues to change. We’ll do a quick review of the history of work, the workplace and the workforce. Using current research, we will examine where work and workers are going, how work is changing and where work is likely to be by 2050...very likely in its 4th evolution. Richards will share the implications of a future workplace and workforce on HR today. Think about what changes we need to make in our HR practices today, to be ready for the future. Work won’t be anchored around skyscrapers; it’ll be anchored around Skype. Office will be cemented as something you do, not a place you go. And the Gen Z’s who are in grade school today? They’ll be running the show! Join an HR futurist and global presenter on workforce strategy and evolution as we get a glimpse into the future of work.
