Albert Einstein




IDC Future of Work Summit 2021 is an exclusive platform for exchange of experience and communication between senior managers.
We will talk about changes in the usual work patterns associated with the acceleration and expansion of digital transformation initiatives, digital workers and in-demand competencies, completely new working conditions, organizational structures, corporate culture, success metrics and technological solutions that contribute to business success and allow to make the company a better employer and attract the best talent.

Key Topics

IDC believes these six areas are profoundly transforming the way we work and are integral for the success of a company’s digital journey.



The hybrid workplace


The augmented workforce


Lifelong learning


Organizational agility


Leading with empathy


Effective management with Data Analytics


It is important that in this discussion about the future — of the organization, economy, and education — all stakeholders should speak up. All those who have an influence on the future of the labor market are welcome to participate in the Future of Work Summit.

Technology is just a tool – a human being decides how or where it will be implemented. The future of work will not be determined by humans or technology alone, but by the two working together. Let's join forces and plan the future of our organizations.

Why Attend

To succeed in the Future of Work, or the new paradigm of work, companies need to effectively address the following questions:

  • How to manage and secure a distributed workforce in a hybrid working environment? How to increase efficiency of collaboration with internal and external partners in a hybrid world? How to manage hybrid teams with the new analytics tools?
  • How automation and intelligent technologies will augment employees and create new business value? What will be the role of augmented reality, robotics, cobots, digital assistants and other biometric technologies?
  • How to effectively recruit and onboard new hires in a hybrid environment? How to support and monitor the efficiency of hybrid teams?  How new work regulations must be reflected in HCM tools supporting workforce and workplace?
  • How can organizations quickly adapt and respond to change? How automation and machine learning will influence the world of work? How can organizations quickly adapt and respond to change? What will be the role of IT in organizational culture on the road to resiliency?
  • What are the traits of a good leader? How does the new management style should look like?

These and other questions will be addressed at our IDC Future of Work Summit 2021.
