Categories: News & Events Updates

Automation, digital platforms, and other innovations are changing the fundamental nature of work. Understanding these shifts are imperative for business leaders and professionals to move forward and successfully transcend this digital tsunami.

Digitization, Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI) and augmented reality are transforming production, distribution, consumption and innovation. These are allowing competitors to emerge unseen and change the rules of the game. Both companies and people are getting disrupted.

To remain ahead in the race of tech transformation, organizations require agility, velocity and a culture of learning & innovation. This makes it imperative for companies to invest in creating learning platforms for their talent pool so that a culture of continues learning (#LearnEveryday) can be created at a mass personalization level.

In its continued efforts from past 4 years of facilitating peer learning and creating a digital library of Workplace Insights on #FutureofWork in India, Corporate Shiksha organized its second edition of the Future Learning Conclave in India’s financial capital on December 1, 2017. The conclave was in partnership with SP Jain School of Global Management, one of the most premiere education institutes in the country, recently ranked among world’s top 20 by Forbes for 5th consecutive year.

Leaders from companies like Sony, HDFC, Vodafone, Credit Suisse, Piramal Group, DHFL, BIC – Cello, Ador Welding, TCS, Deloitte, Mahindra & Mahindra and Corporate Shiksha shared Workplace Insights on Technology, jobs, and the future of work

The full-day event was segmented into three sessions:
