The workplace transformation, we are certain, will be an amalgamation of complex, changing and competing forces. Some of these forces may be certain but the speed at which some can unfold may be hard to predict. A McKinsey survey has found that the post-pandemic era has speeded the adoption of digital technologies by several years & many of these changes could be there for the long haul. Another interesting find by PWC talks about how 60% surveyed across India, UK, US, China & Germany think ‘few people will have stable, long-term employment in the future’. With the world and organizations changing rapidly than ever, let’s hear from our Keynote speaker on areas such as the changing dynamics of work, culture, leadership in this post-pandemic era or the hybrid world.
Embracing Hybrid with Head, Heart and Soul
Once in a generation, Leaders may have the opportunity to redesign work the way we can. Our leaders are putting their Head, Heart & Soul into designing Hybrid models, while employees are still re-evaluating their relationship with work, what will the end result look like ?A recent report by McKinsey shows that Majority of the Workforce (62%) pre-pandemic preferred Fully On Site work model, whereas Majority of the Workforce (52%) post-pandemic prefer Hybrid work model. The report also highlights the fact that a hybrid model is more complicated than a fully remote one and at scale, using it will be an unprecedented event in which all kinds of norms will be put to the test. Join us for a session on designing the next Hybrid Operating Model, Empathizing with the Workforce, Embracing the test of agility and learning culture & more!

Call it an aftermath of a widespread pandemic or an opportunity to look at the way Talent is attracted, developed and retained. Reskilling of Talent and shift towards GIG culture are the two key aspects that would feature into the vision of every organization. Welcome to the most demanding ‘Reskilling phase’ of the century! Whether it is due to demographic shifts or gradually increasing demand along with decreasing supply of talent; talent management practices through reskilling have evolved over the years to cater to organization-specific trends. The World Economic Forum estimates that over half of all employees (54%) will require ‘significant’ reskilling by 2022.

Organizations such as Airbnb, Grofers, Ola cabs and likes have meaning fully implemented agile Talent management techniques through reskilling and made the most of GIG culture. Owing to On-demand platforms based on the digital economy and ease of work based on convenience, in the economy created a new labor force characterized by independent and contractual labor and thus the GIG culture popped up in the last few decades, and this trend accelerated during the 2020 economic crisis.

There is a lot of research to see how learning is evolving and the factors influencing how we learn. These factors include new discoveries in brain science on how people learn, trends such as human and machine interaction, and advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Mental Wellness how we Institutionalize in Our Organizations
At a time when we bring so much of ourselves to work, mental health is still something we don’t like talking about at the office. What if we objectively create a work environment where employees feel comfortable expressing mental health conditions – Would it improve the workplace experience? Reduce absenteeism and increase productivity? An article from Harvard business review stated that nearly 200 million workdays are lost due to mental health conditions each year ($16.8 billion in employee productivity) yet, almost 60% of employees have never spoken to anyone at work about their mental health status. The study also found that less than half of the respondents felt that mental health was prioritized at their organization – What can we do more to change this around? Find out more in the session!

Finding Mindfulness Amidst Digital Madness
To say it was an unprecedented year would be an understatement. So many of the pillars keeping us sane have been toppled: we’re confined to our homes, unable to see many of the people we love; money and health worries abound; the news is like a disaster movie; our sleep is disrupted. Not only is the pandemic beyond our control, but there is no clear, identifiable end point. Against a constant stream of distractions, a moment of presence helps us make a conscious choice about what to focus on next—and to be less reactive when our emotions get triggered. Mindfulness can give us some calm as we embrace using technology more to make the best of our circumstances. Perhaps more than anything, though, our mindfulness practice reminds us to stay curious toward all that we meet in our experience whilst living innumerable parallel lives through glass screens. Join this practical session on Mindfulness!
