Preparing Your Company For The Immediate & Long-Term Future Of Work
Did you know that the convergence of emerging technologies will soon lead to one of the most disruptive times in human history? Have you thought through how this will change the talent your company needs over the next 5 to 10 year?
More immediately, do you have a strategy for bringing your company back to the office? What if they don’t want to come back, or if we can’t come back?
This course will help you explore these emerging technologies and how they will affect your workforce in the short-term and the long-term. We will discuss how technology affects recruitment and retention, productivity, and how to prepare now for the future changes in your company’s talent needs.
This masterclass is aimed at business executives and board members working in the knowledge economy as well as anyone looking to learn about the effects of technology on their workforce.

I believe that those of us who are privileged enough to be educated, healthy, and part of powerful networks should not be doing easy things. The only way to justify our privilege is to do the hard things that society demands of us — to solve tough problems and create opportunities for others. I launched The Room to bring the most ambitious ‘doers’ together to do these hard things that will change the world. I welcome you to be a part of our story and join this global community as we make history together.Fred Swaniker
