DIGITAL FORUM | United Kingdom | October 22, 2020

Due to the current global situation, IDC have taken the decision to make the Future of Work 2.0 Conference that is taking place on 22nd October a Digital Forum. This decision was taken as the safety of our sponsors, delegates and staff is paramount, and our communities health should be placed above all else.


No one could have predicted the state of the world today. Besides the death toll, the current pandemic has thrown the European continent into the deepest recession since World War II. This is an important inflexion point in history and there is no return. The world will never be the same post-crisis - like the virus, it has mutated in something stronger.

In the workplace, the current crisis has been a catalyst for profound workforce transformation. Companies that have succeeded with business continuity and resilience during the crisis, were led by an agile, engaged and highly skilled workforce. 

Whilst no one has a blueprint for the next normal, we can all consider the lessons of the recent past and re-imagine constructively our future. How would we like it to be? We believe the following elements will be shaping the next normal:


-        The hybrid workplace for employee productivity

-        Automation and intelligent technologies creating superior employee experience 

-        High performance teams that are adaptable to a volatile changing world

-        Employee empowerment and trust and new leadership models

-        Lifelong learning that fosters a culture of innovation  

-        Wellbeing in the workplace
