Designing a New ‘World of Work’?

Designing a New ‘World of Work’?

Disruptive changes brought about by digital technology, changing workforce demographics and a new employer-employee contract are driving organizations to design a new world of work that is more flexible, less hierarchical and more focused on employee needs.

“Our research shows powerful technology and business disruptions around the world are driving dramatic change both for HR functions and the organizations they serve,” says Josh Bersin, principal, Bersin by Deloitte, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “Built around highly empowered teams, driven by a new model of management and led by a breed of younger, more globally-diverse leaders, the emerging new organization reflects the critical importance placed on organizational structure. In fact, 92 percent of the executives surveyed for the ‘Deloitte Global Human Capital Trends 2016’ study identified organizational redesign as a critical priority in the year ahead.”

David Mallon adds: “To survive and thrive in today’s always-on environment, companies likely need to redesign the way they build leaders, develop people, and measure and drive culture.” Mallon is Bersin by Deloitte’s head of research.

Those are among the sweeping shifts that executives and research analysts will explore in presentations and working sessions at Bersin by Deloitte’s “Impact 2016 Different by Design: The New Organization,” which takes place April 25-28 at the Diplomat Resort & Spa in Hollywood, Fla.

Executives and senior leaders from AbbVie, Cisco, Halliburton, Intel Corporation, Lyft, and PayPal, will be among the more than 30 senior-level presenters at the conference. They will describe leading talent and HR solutions to address the sweeping global forces that are reshaping the workplace, the workforce and work itself. Josh Bersin, principal, Bersin by Deloitte, Deloitte Consulting LLP, will focus his keynote on the need to fundamentally change the way organizations are structured.

Bersin by Deloitte also will recognize the five finalists in its WhatWorks award program, which recognizes outstanding talent-related innovations that drive business impact.
