Using new technology to increase efficiency makes sense, but it’s only one side of the coin – the future of work is the future of man and machine. That’s why more and more companies see upskilling their workforce as a priority.
While 66% of senior execs* said it’s vital to deploy new technology, more saw Emotional Intelligence (EI) and people skills as key success factors specifically Adaptability (76%), Problem solving (72%), Risk management (72%), Digital skills in general (75%)*
So how do you build this ‘new’ workforce remotely? How do you help them cope with the challenges of remote working? How do you fulfil employee expectations of a flexible work model and still be able to address the need for face‐to‐face interaction and creative dialogue between colleagues?
In this session, we’ll be discussing:
• How to build the skills of your workforce
• Enable employees to maintain a good work/life balance
• How to encourage them to leverage their empathy, compassion and emotional intelligence in their decision making
