The nature of work is changing. Work during the pandemic has shed new light on the opportunities of remote work and more and more organizations are introducing new and more flexible working conditions. In addition, the digital transformation is still replacing and redefining jobs and influencing career architecture, roles, and responsibilities in the organizations. At this NOCA event we look at what we need to know about the future of work.
What do we need to consider about new ways of working?
At this NOCA event we take a glance at new ways of working on both a tactical and a strategic level. We will hear two practical cases from Kromann Reumert and Chr Hansen on how they have introduced their new ways of working following the pandemic. We will get insight into concrete examples of how to change work structures and hear their approach to handling potential future challenges for organizing work.
In addition, Associate Professor from CBS Michael Pedersen will, based on research within the area of self-management, give us an introduction to what we need to consider when we change how we work. What are the red flags? And what does it really take to change work habits?
Lastly, we have invited Ravin Jesuthasan, Global thought leader, futurist, and author on the Future of Work topic to talk about how we on a strategic level can identify and create roles of the future. The overall question is how can we enable our workforce and organization to be future ready?
