World of Work Conference: Enlightening the Dark Side

Enlightening the dark side of the future of work

As robots, artificial intelligence and machine learning are becoming more common in the world of work, what needs to happen in policy and practice in universities and businesses to keep ahead?

Join us at this year’s World of Work (WOW) conference as we explore the dark side of the future of work and shine a light on what needs to happen in policy and practice both in universities and businesses.

We will focus on what is needed in career development alongside what’s needed in recruitment and talent acquisition against a backdrop of the ever-changing workplace. We’ve developed a community of likeminded people, with partners within universities and industry – as we want to work in partnership to create the future of work, rather than be told it.

We started the conversation last September. This time, the conference will go deeper into the world of robots, artificial intelligence and machine learning to discuss and debate their predicted effects on the future of work. We are building on the conversation that we started last September, undertaking more analysis to get a better understanding of what’s really going on. The focus of this conference is to enlighten the seemingly dark side of the future of work.

The conference will be hosted by Naeema Pasha, Director of Henley Careers.
