Overview

Navigating the Next Normal with a Human First and Purpose-Driven FoW Strategy

 

We are at an inflexion point in history. Uncertainty, rapid change and disruption are becoming patterns of our new reality, and the models and assumptions of the past are no longer valid to build our future (quoting Einstein: “don’t use old maps to explore the new world”). Whilst digital transformation is positioned as the panacea for success, this approach leaves out two fundamental core components: on the one hand, that “humans” are the engine behind any digital change; on the other hand, that a “purpose-driven organization” is the vision and ultimate goal of everything, a company’s North Star. They’re vital for business resiliency and growth, and they’re the anchor of a Future of Work Strategy.

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 automation and intelligent technologies will augment employees and create new business value? How can organizations quickly adapt and respond to change? And, finally, and most importantly, what are the traits of a good leader?

During the IDC European Future of Work Digital Summit 2021, we will address these questions and the concept of Navigating the Next Normal with a Human First and Purpose-Driven FoW Strategy, we can all consider the lessons of the recent past and re-imagine constructively our future.

Join us our IDC Analyst and expert Speakers and your Peers for this exclusive Digital Event Experience.

We look forward to connecting with you soon!

Roberta, Angela, Jan and Mick

While all organizations have been impacted by the global pandemic, some have successfully leveraged the disruption to their advantage.

Platinum Partner Keynote: Ushering a new era of Experiential Hybrid workplace – From Strategy to Action

Rakshit Ghura

VP & Global Head – Digital Workplace Services, HCL Technologies

 

The post-pandemic era is marred with uncertainties. Rapid changes in the workplace have forced enterprises to go beyond the short-term measures and redefine their vision for the workplace they want to provision for their employees.

Although enterprises have begun to plan for their employees' safe return to the workplace; the remote working is there to stay for a foreseeable future, supporting and securing this remote workforce and at the same time safeguarding the employees returning to the workspaces poses challenges that calls for a novel workplace strategy.

It is imperative for the companies to think strategically with a long-term vision of delivering a holistic and intelligent user experience that extends beyond the boundaries office as we enter the next era of hybrid work.
