Description
According to Charles Darwin, "In the struggle for survival, the fittest win out at the expense of their rivals because they succeed in adapting themselves best to their environment."
In the world today, we are facing major changes that will reshape the workplace of tomorrow. Over the next few decades, the most successful companies will be the ones who adapt well to these changes. Human Resource professionals can help their organizations embrace these changes and prepare for the future.
We anticipate the future workplace to be a very exciting one! The internet has empowered us in so many ways. We can connect with people from all over the globe through social media, we can absorb knowledge through wikis and we can use the web to stay informed and entertained. We can take the internet wherever we go, and access our work anytime, anywhere from our smart devices. Governments are supporting technological advancements through R&D funding and are protecting our privacy through new legislation.
As the baby boomers retire and the next generation of tech-savvy children become the new leaders of the workforce, a whole new set of dynamics will take over. Having grown up with computers and video games, this new generation will take advantage of technology as second nature. They are natural communicators and collaborators with years of practice.
Many HR professionals today see these changes as challenges, but they also present us with incredible opportunities. Technology is rooted in these changes and utilizing it effectively can help companies adapt to new workplace demands.
In this workshop, Linda and Marla will review some of the changes you may be experiencing in your workplace. You will learn how to step up to these opportunities and maximize the potential for your organization’s success. You will also get a glimpse into how leveraging technology will help you and your company adapt and thrive.

This speaker was clearly not prepared to discuss the topic. She read from a script and frequently did not speak into the microphone. 2 / 5
