Why You Should Attend

Workforce Optimisation 2017

Trends in digital platforms and intelligent automation are transforming the way we do business. Ongoing disruption is placing some of Australia’s most iconic business brands under threat.

Accenture found that "37% of Australian executives believe that in three years the proportion of workers in their organisation will shift towards significantly more flexible, multi-skilled employees - more than their global peers (29%), China (21%) and Japan (15%).”

Technology is transforming the skill set demands across all departments. The strongest demand will be for flexible, multi-skilled candidates with technical proficiency and the ability to adapt quickly to change – what Accenture calls ‘chameleon workers’, one that is able to adapt to change, learn new skills in a short space of time and seamlessly move from assignment to assignment – a contribution to a new trend that Accenture refers to as the ‘liquid workforce’.

The impact of technology to the workforce is massive. This is a game-changer to any traditional workforce we’ve come to know. Companies failing to adapt to this workforce revolution will find themselves losing competitive advantage and left behind and may be difficult to play catch up. More so than ever, companies have to find effective ways to engage, motivate, retain, retrain and attract talent to support the continued survivability of the company.

By attending marcus evans Workforce Optimisation 2017 conference, you will gain insights to how workforce is being changed internally and externally. This conference will be about tailoring workforce to be more agile to be able to rapidly adapt and change – this is especially important to prepare for the incoming digital workforce age. Not forgetting all previous challenges with workforce engagement, talent management and how companies are able to increase productivity by right-sizing workforce and explore cost reduction strategies.
