Leading with empathy


We are at a turning point in history. Uncertainty about what tomorrow will bring, rapid change and unpredictable events are becoming the patterns of our new reality, and the safe models of the past are no longer valid in the new world.

The degree to which organisations are flexible and adaptable to change - in terms of business processes, technology and, most importantly, employees - will determine their chances of survival and growth in the future. Agile collaboration, employee empowerment, lifelong learning and trust must be built into the culture of any organisation that wants to succeed in the digital race.

The Future of Work concept is a key driver of positive change on three levels:

  • creating a positive employee experience that creates a sense of belonging and meaning at work,
  • supporting new business models for the digital economy,
  • promoting a culture of corporate social responsibility.


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 conference.

We invite CEOs, COOs, CFOs, CIOs, and CHROs to engage collectively and beyond their departmental silos, contributing to a dialogue that benefits from all perspectives. 

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.
