Welcome to Future Workplace Network meeting hosted by Microsoft! In this opening session, participants will be engaged in an interactive opening exercise related to the overall theme of Prepare for the Future of Work: Mastering Disruptions in Learning, Career Development, and Performance Management. Our opening session will leverage a suite of Microsoft technologies to engage, inspire, and challenge you to navigate a path toward the workplace and workforce of the future where understanding the future of work is a business issue, and not just an HR issue. We need to be prepared to answer questions such as: how do we attract and develop and talent we need, while adapting our strategies to a blended workforce of full time employees, gig workers, and bots, and securing the funding so the organization can navigate the disruptions happening in the workplace.
Learning enables companies to embrace their Digital Transformation journey. Learn how Microsoft is leveraging Learning as a growth lever.

In 1990 the three biggest companies in Detroit had a market capitalization of $36bn, revenues of $250bn and 1.2 million employees. In 2014, the three biggest companies in Silicon Valley had a considerably higher market capitalization ($1.09tn) generated roughly the same revenues ($247bn) but with about 10 times fewer employees (137,000). More broadly, smarter machines are beginning to replace all types of workers, from accountants to delivery drivers and from real estate agents to people handling routine motor insurance claims. On one estimate, 47% of US jobs are at risk from automation. Can Learning and Development help our society transform without leaving anyone behind?

In the simplest of terms, Bots are software that you chat with to get things done.

In a fast paced discussion, three members will share what they are working on and use this as a discussion starter for the rest of our session. The topics range from re-inventing performance management, to using people analytics to drive better decisions in HR. Participating members will be announced shortly.

A panel of experts will discuss this and invite the members of the Future Workplace Network to share their successes.
