Overview

With a vast majority of the population fully vaccinated in the developed world, many business leaders are falling into the trap that work can be resumed just like the "good old days", and expect that concerns around cybersecurity, employee engagement and innovation, to name a few, will be resolved. Regrettably, their efforts will be in vain, i.e. their employees will leave. Like the virus, the world of work has mutated and changed for ever.

"Adapt or die" says the old adage, with its roots in Darwinism. We are entering a New Era that is fluid, moving rapidly and highly disruptive. Many established enterprises will die, unable to be transformed, but many others will emerge and set the pace to competitors.

What will differentiate high performing companies from those that aren't? High-performers function as a living organism, by being agile, adaptable to a fast-paced environment; they are highly connected internally and externally with a rich ecosystem and constantly mutating (innovating) to be ahead of the game. Moreover, their most basic cell, their employees, are empowered to excel in full orchestration with the whole.

Join IDC's Future of Work digital event on October 25th 2022 to be inspired and learn more about:

  • What hybrid working means and how to make it a success
  • How to provide technology experience parity across home, office and other work environments
  • How to enhance employee engagement
  • How to create an "Experience Office" and make commuting worthwhile
  • How to build better teams in a distributed workforce
  • How to make the workplace intelligent, personal and highly connected

New rules for a new era of work: Technological, procedural and cultural considerations for success in a hybrid world

Spencer Pitts

Digital Workspace Chief Technologist, EMEA, VMware

Hybrid work is here, and it’s here to stay. 

We’re witnessing the birth of an entirely new way of organizing the workforce: the “virtual floorplan,” where colleagues collaborate and form connections primarily over digital channels. It’s causing leaders to re-evaluate how they build and manage teams; it’s allowing colleagues to connect in new and fruitful ways; and it’s solidifying the importance of trust, transparency, and communication in the workplace. 

As businesses grow more and more comfortable with the virtual floorplan, the question is not whether it will work — it’s how to use it to maximize productivity, morale, performance, and team cohesion. In this keynote, we will explore these topics:

  • How does remote work impact performance? 
  • Can workers and managers still feel connected despite being geographically distant? 
  • And how do your IT teams need to work and skill up differently, not least to ensure that sensitive information is secure across ever-multiplying endpoints?

The great re-attraction - What makes (hybrid) work places attractive in 2022?

Tue Krabbe Juelsbo

Vice President | Head of People and Organizational Development, Alm. Brand A/S

We've all heard about the Great Resignation and read the stories: Tech workers are resigning, changing careers, or jumping ship to our competitors in record numbers. Pay demands are spiraling and most workplaces find it increasingly difficult to attract new talent while retaining key personel.

This presentation focuses on what you as leaders can actually do to retain your top talent and how better pay is not the top reason why employees jump ship. Building on both own experience and recent studies of the European and Danish workforce this presentation will equip you to answer two key questions:

What motivates top talent to stay in your organization? What are the key drivers when talent decides to quit?
