Strategic HR at Mt. Washington: Oct 24-26, 2021


The Future of Work, Part 1

Sunday, October 24th, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 4:45 pm

What’s it all about? So much of our lives has been consumed with the immediacy of Covid, which is why we want to end the conference first day with a broader perspective. Leading in the moment requires a sense of the future, and Don MacPherson joins us from Minneapolis to do just that. He is Executive Director of think2perform RESEARCH INSTITUTE and creator of the 12 Geniuses podcast. The great talents he has met along the way come from every corner of society, and they have helped him understand the churning technological, socio-economic, and cultural forces that will impact the workforce and the HR profession.   

Why you’ll want to participate in this session.

  • Part 1 of this discussion focuses on technology, referencing themes from augmented reality, cybersecurity, and carbon capture, and then concentrating in greater detail on the topics of AI, Quantum, and Biotech.
  • The goal is to help you understand how these technologies will disrupt work, the workforce, and your organization’s direction, and how you can advocate for the necessary changes in your organization’s strategy and behavior.
  • We’ll leave Part 1 with questions to ponder for the rest of the conference and that help set up the Part 2 discussion on social issues.
