One of the key challenges that decision-makers, have to grapple with is predicting the future. While we rely on data and analytics as well as the support of experts, a certain level of uncertainty lies at the heart of some of the most critical decisions we make in the workplace, especially around upskilling the workforce for the future. You might be surprised to know that, only 20% of the CEOs are thinking about a strategy to address this.

The IET’s Engineering the Future of Work is a neutral credible and inclusive platform to address one of the largest and most complex workforces in the world – India.

To kick start this movement we are creating a one-day confluence of the work ecosystem of India on October 22, 2019, in Mumbai, called Engineering the Future of Work. The event aims to create expert think tanks that will work with industry, academia and the Government to build sustainable road maps for the future. Divided initially into four buckets, this platform will try to solve the biggest jigsaw in the future of work.

The buckets are:

– Future of Education will focus on how our education systems will have to reinvent themselves to provide skills for the future as well as get ready to reskill the current workforce to make them future-ready

– Future of Organisations will focus on how organisations have to prepare for the future that automation, AI and other technologies bring and the impact on talent and their ability to deliver the goals that organisations set for themselves in the next decade

– Future of the Professional will focus on how individuals have to reset their calibrations to become neo generalists with multiple deep specialisation versus the current trends of a single deep specialisation

– Future Frameworks will focus on future skills frameworks for the industry as well as regulatory and legal frameworks that will support the growth of micro-entrepreneurs and the players of the gig economy

Come, join us as we create the roadmap for India in the Future of Work.

Let's solve the biggest #JigsawofWork
