The future of work is here.

Reality gets amplified through social media. Technology allows for transparency and openness. Changes are accelerated. New ecosystems appear. Old services and devices reappear. The workforce is more diverse. Women are more and more prepared and present in the workplace. And robotization is changing the playfield in which works develops.

All these trends are affecting our societies and the way we work and how we manage our career path. We need to be ready to develop our people accordingly and make career decisions that lead to successful outcomes. Digital identity is one of the keys to being ready for what the future brings, and this requires long-term strategy.

In this session, participants will be able to consider these issues and put together plans for their own career development.
