Can Humans Thrive in the Workplace of 2030?

Extraordinary forces are transforming the modern workforce. Technology and automation are rewriting and even eliminating some jobs, while thousands of as-yet-unknown jobs (IFTF study, 2017) will be created in the coming decade. And with the influx of Gen Z, four very different generations – each with its unique preferences and work styles –will be working together...and in close partnership with machines...for the first time. So what skills are required to thrive in the workplace of 2030? How can employers harness the strengths of each generation to drive collaboration and innovation? Can AI eliminate bias and create a more fair and equitable work environment for all? The voices of all four generations will engage in a lively discussion about the not-so-dystopian future of work.
