Ravin Jesuthasan, Managing Director, Willis Towers Watson’s Talent Management Practice

Today, executives have to cut through a lot of hype around automation. Leaders need a clear way to think about how technologies like AI and robotics will specifically affect their organizations. The right question isn’t which jobs are going to be replaced, but rather, what work will be redefined, and how? The challenges of the future require a framework that integrates automation, work and organizations that is freed from typical assumptions about how work gets done.

AI will significantly disrupt and potentially empower the global workforce. It won’t happen all at once or in every job, but it will happen, and leaders will need a work automation strategy that transforms their business models and rests on a more nuanced understanding of work. Recognizing how automation can transform the performance and value equation provides a significant competitive advantage. Successful leaders will translate the evolving pivot points in their business models into specific implications for work, looking beyond jobs, and understand the transformative role AI can play in redefining the performance curve for the work of the future.

During the session, hear the latest research, best-practice company experiences, and emerging future trends affecting the future of work. Hear about the different types of automation and the specific types of work they can affect.  Learn how companies should rethink the value of a job, in terms of increased performance through automation. What skillsets should companies invest in? Which work should remain within the company, and what should be accessed via the new ecosystem of work that includes talent platforms and AI vendors?

Learning Objectives: 

  • Understand the value of different work automation opportunities.
  • Learn how to manage the decoupling of work from the organization.
  • Understand how to re-envision the organization.
