This June, the CIPD Festival of Work (12-13 June 2019, Olympia London) promises to be a landmark event for both people professionals and business leaders. But what’s the story behind it, and why is this conference needed?
The world of work is being revolutionised by technology and innovation. Artificial intelligence is now capable of learning autonomously perform tasks that were once the sole dominion of humans. In the future, people won’t be needed to perform the same tasks as today – the role of humans at work will inevitably and drastically change.
We believe that it is time to stop agonising about AI and robots taking over people’s jobs. For every job that will be made redundant by machines, a new one will be created for humans to work more closely with technology. Human-machine integration now offers the opportunity to augment human potential and turn our grandest dreams into reality. Humans will still be central in the future of work!
This future, however, comes with a fresh set of challenges for people and organisations. We need to be able to reskill ourselves and our employees to be able to step up and work alongside technology. We need to rethink how we lead organisations, manage people and how we embrace technology and innovation to increase business success while also creating a better society for all.
These are the pillars of the CIPD Festival Work – bringing together three shows and six content streams under the same roof to tackle the biggest issues in the world of work. A conference pass gives you access to all the shows and content streams, over 50 sessions and 160+ top speakers from all industries and sectors, to guide you through the challenges and opportunities of the new and disrupted world of work. By focusing on the most innovative strategies in management, technology and learning, the festival will help you to harness the latest transformations and drive a human future of work.
