Staying Ahead of the Curve with a Purpose-Led Organization

IDC Future of Work

In 2023, work is going to be redefined - and we know how.

Where, how and most importantly why work happens is changing. Join this session to learn how to move to the model which fosters human-machine collaboration and new workers' experiences.
At IDC, we believe in data-driven decisions, which is why we employ more than 1300 analysts across the world. Join our Future of Work Conference on 15th March to hear their insights about how to cope with the Great Resignation, and how to help employees find purpose through their work.

So how to keep your employees happy, engaged and productive? We believe that being a purpose-led organization is the key to success. Purpose-led organizations are inspiring and successfully engaging their people towards a higher set of goals, which then translates to a better customer experience. However, purpose does not compromise profit and purpose-led organizations aim to outperform.
Why Attend?
IDC UK Future of Work Conference 2023 is an event that connects senior IT and business professionals across industries. We aim to create the best-in-class independent content based on insights from our analysts, external speakers, as well as industry thought leaders.

The event will provide you with industry trends, actionable recommendations, hands-on experience from external speakers and last but not least - a chance to connect and network with your peers from the leading companies.

IDC data context

Based on an IDC survey, 32% of European employees are looking for a new job now. Of the 32%, 7% are employees who have been forced to look for new employment due to a change of residence or because they are on time-limited contracts. This leaves 25% of European employees who are looking for new opportunities simply because they are unsatisfied with their current employment. Studies estimate that the cost of replacing an individual employee can range from a half to two times the employee’s annual salary. The most talented employees often leave first.
