The Future of Work (Adobe Think Tank Video)
In December 2017, IBRS joined eight globally recognised thought leaders to discuss the Future of Work as part of Adobe's Think Tank series.
IBRS advisor, Dr Joseph Sweeney, not only presented a view of how technology is impacting the workforce during the live panel discussion but also moderated the pre-event brainstorm session and assisted with pre-event briefings.
The discussion examined the long-term ramifications of the changing workplace, including:
technology's impact on traditional jobs
which jobs are under threat
opportunities for new roles
changing hiring and work practices
the disruption caused by the gig economy
the role of governments
how education must change
