Reimagining the Future of Work in the Enterprise

May 8, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

  • This event has passed.

This free event for the tech community is hosted by Ascent Venture Partners and is being held on May 8.

The world of work as we know it is in a state of flux – automation, robotics and other digital innovations are altering the fundamental nature of work. These developments bring the promise of higher productivity, safety, convenience and overall increased efficiencies, but also raise questions about the larger impact of technology on jobs, skills, recruiting and dozens of other workplace fundamentals. Workers are challenging the conventional ideas of work and driving companies to adapt how they’re identifying and recruiting talent. Understanding these shifts will help business leaders, employees and policy makers prepare as best they can for what the future holds.

Discussion topics include:

  • Trends driving the changing nature of work
  • How to identify and source the best talent in a competitive market
  • Using recruiting technology to market to and track candidates
  • Optimizing for a bias-free recruiting process
  • How robotics and automation affect daily work
  • A shift towards remote, flexible, part-time, freelancing, and consulting
  • Measuring employee happiness and productivity via people analytics
  • The impact of onboarding, training, and communicating on your employees
  • How to maintain company culture while scaling
