The ‘now of work’ and reframing the fourth industrial revolution

Main Stage

Faethm is on a mission to reframe the Fourth Industrial Revolution as a ‘Renaissance’ and drive economic value and social equality in the global workforce. Faethm provides future modelling and insights via an analytics platform to educate, inform and prepare leaders globally.

Michael Priddis will share why it is integral that we as a society understand and prepare for this shift. Faethm is helping to break down the technological impacts and workforce opportunities to navigate the current landscape and evolution of work. The future is not impending, it is ‘now’.

With the right infrastructure, education and intent, organisations and governments have the opportunity to flourish as automating and augmenting technologies are introduced to the workforce. Faethm is built for this purpose. Now, it is up to us as thought leaders to leverage insight and enact change.

Following his keynote presentation, Michael will be in conversation with Maria MacNamara and questions will also be taken from the audience.

“Today's problems, yesterday's toolkit, the creeping crisis for effectiveness”

MAIN STAGE

With so much changing, do workers, particularly those in the Australian Public Service have the toolkit and training needed?

Australian public servants are eager to join the world’s most informed and effective public administrations and adopt new ways of developing policy and services, according to a world-first survey of nearly 400 public servants, conducted by the Monash Sustainable Development Institute and the NYU Governance Lab on behalf of ANZSOG.

Johanna Pitman will be in conversation with Professor Rod Glover on the findings of the survey and the report.

9.50am | Keynote

“The Bionic Future – Powered by AI, Enabled by humans

Main Stage

What is the appetite for embracing new skills and tools across the wider economy?

A recent Harvard Business School and BCG study across 11 countries, found that business leaders feel anxious as they struggle to marshal and mobilise the workforce of tomorrow, but workers seem to be more adaptive and optimistic about the future than their leaders recognise.

The conventional wisdom, of course, is that workers fear that technology will make their jobs obsolete. However, our survey revealed that a majority of the workers felt that advances such as automation and artificial intelligence would have a positive impact on their future, but they want more support and guidance to prepare themselves for future employment than management are currently providing.

The question is, what can employers really do to help?

10.10am | KEYNOTE “

Deconstructing the future of work – distilling the hype to create meaningful impact for your organisation”

Main Stage

There’s a practical element to all of this. How do you separate the fact from the fiction and avoid getting caught up in the hype to avoid misplacing effort and investing in the wrong workforce initiatives? How can organisations successfully apply the principles of Strategic Workforce Planning (SWP) to align your workforce to meet the needs of future of work, including:

  • How to determine the skills and capabilities your organisation needs for the future

  • How technology such as AI, Robotics and ML are enablers for the workforce, not replacements

  • How the ability to model workforce needs is critical for executive alignment and accelerates action around the workforce

  • Why planning is required to address trends like the gig economy and freelancers 

  • What happens when organisations are not proactively planning around their workforce

  • Why it is the social responsibility of employers to undertake SWP

Future work, beyond fear to the realities

MAIN STAGE

Recent writing on the future of work is cultivating a psychology of fear. This presentation will remove the hyperbole from the now very noisy future work discussion and emphasise what research and evidence confirm as fact.

At the risk of slaying some popular misconceptions, Marcus will provide some robust foundations that will equip individuals and businesses to plan, prepare and prioritise with less anxiety and uncertainty.

11.10am | Panel Powered by DeakinCo. “The Future of Work is happening now - live case studies from the market”

MAIN STAGE

Case studies provide us with a practical and clear context in which decisions have been made and the lessons learned. Hear the DeakinCo. panel of experts expand on the current research in human centred (soft) skills and share insights on the increase of soft skills intensive jobs, the demand and supply of soft skills and the importance of soft skills in comparison to technical skills.

The panel will also discuss the trends emerging in work 4.0, how organisations and individuals can ensure they have the right skills, the emerging technologies or tools to effectively enable people to reskill and how we can build a skills currency to help individuals navigate their career, with practical examples from the market.

Facilitator Glenn Campbell, Executive Director & CEO at DeakinCo. will be joined by

Citrix.jpg

12.40pm | Keynote “The Evolution of Employee Computing”

Main Stage

Citrix has been helping employees work from anywhere for over 30 years and it leverages this knowledge and experience to create workspaces that deliver engaging employee experiences that enable people to work from anywhere and any device.  Why is this more important in the new economy?

From punch cards to green screens, desktops and now digital workspaces. The technology used by employees continues to evolve. While new technology provides benefits to IT departments and businesses, allowing them to adapt to changing markets and drive greater efficiencies, often the impact to employees is not considered. With unemployment rates at record lows there is a war on talent. 

Attracting and retaining employees is critical and this can only be done by delivering an exceptional employee experience. 

In this session, hear about the evolution of employee computing, the increased complexity in today’s IT environments and how Citrix is focusing on simplifying the way technology is used in the workplace boosting productivity and empowering employees.

2.35pm | Keynote “Navigating Careers in the Future of Work”

Main stage

In the debate around the skills for the future of work there is one skill set that rarely gets a mention and yet it will be essential to all of us - career management in a constantly changing world of work. 

It is likely that each of us we will have multiple careers in our working lives and the way we engage with organisations for work and the way organisations engage with us will be radically different. 

So, what are the skills that you need to survive in an unknown future? Why should managing your career become a practised skill that everyone learns? And why should smart organisations teach their employees to manage their careers

The conversation will be facilitated by Maria MacNamara

3.20 | Keynote “The future of the worker: the untapped talent of cognitive diversity

Main Stage

At a time of acute global shortages in technology talent projected to reach 3 million by 2022, businesses are in search of creative solutions. On the other hand, autistic people face huge employment barriers despite many having highly sought after skills. The UN estimates that 80% of the 125 million people with autism globally are unemployed or underemployed. 

Xceptional has developed a technology platform that enables autistic job seekers to demonstrate rather than articulate their strengths and matches them to employer partners. Practical case studies will be shared from this unique work which has been recognised through $1million from Google.

3.35pm | Panel “Focus on You, Agile working and work from anywhere.”

Work now needs to work for everyone. Whether we are parents with young children, or we find ourselves at the other end of the spectrum, caring for older members of the family. It also needs to work if we are in rural and remote areas of the country or overseas. 

What models are effective? What lessons have been learned? How can upskilling open up new opportunities for us?

Facilitator Johanna Pitman will be joined by

4.10pm | Keynote “Finding your purpose - and helping others find theirs”

Main Stage

We’ve heard about the changes in work that has arrived and presented us with opportunities and threats. 

We’ve heard about the robots that we value and the skills we need to develop. We now understand the jobs that are open to us and the wages that will rise when we develop and apply them. We’ve also heard about the diversity and the opportunity for everyone to become involved. 

So how do we, in framing the new world of work, give it meaning? Give it purpose? Make our efforts deliver impact and how do we work on the world’s to do list?
