Future of Work

How HR can prepare for tomorrow’s workforce

HR faces changing work and employee expectations

Industry disruptions are driving more agile work. Companies are undertaking digital business transformations that are changing their products and services, operations and internal capabilities. Automation is rapidly putting large labor market segments at risk of redundancy or profound change. These trends are radically changing work and employment expectations.

The No. 1 challenge we are facing within our organization is understanding how we can bolster the workforce with new digital technologies. It is a modernizing time for manufacturing, and we are looking to our partnership with Gartner to really get there.
