The Future of Work @ ACT-IAC Evolving the Workforce COI
Featured Topic: What’s The Future, Workwise?
The Future of Work is one of the hottest business topics of our day. Over the next decade, technology and automation will continue to drive changes in the American economy and workforce. Some occupations will shrink, others will grow, and the tasks, time allocation, and required skills associated with almost every job will change. Companies and Government agencies are automating tedious tasks, augmenting workers with artificial-intelligence technologies, reskilling and upskilling their workforces, focusing on employee wellness, and hungrily recruiting talent. Government agencies are increasingly called upon to address society’s most complex challenges using workforce approaches rooted in the distant past. The good news: Change is possible—and beginning to happen.
This session will be comprised of two industry leaders discussing their research into the future of work. They will explore the coming changes in the workplace and how these changes will vary significantly across types of jobs, people and places. Afterwards, they will discuss questions about how best for communities, corporations, and governments to respond.
This session supports Presidential Management Agenda Goal 6, Shifting from Low-Value to High-Value Work. We believe you will find this session valuable as you work to optimize your agency’s workforce performance.
