In the 20th Century Humans were the Extension of the Machine – What about the 21st Century?

Join us this Thursday at 5pm ET for the Future-Proof Workplace show!

Robots are taking all the jobs… or are they? The automation economy both destroys and creates jobs, and most of us will be “working side-by-side with robots” in the future. The extension of “man and the machine” is well recognized as the hallmark of the 20th Century. What the 21st Century offers is the integration of humans and the machine.

What does this all mean for us as a race as we go forward? What will work mean, and what will it look like? What kind of jobs will we be doing, and how will be learning? All important questions that will drive this century, which will be the most advanced and profoundly impactful on humanity in history. Join us this week as we talk with J.P. Gownder, VP and Principal Analyst at Forrester Research. We will be discussing the 10 key predictions for the evolution of automation in 2018 that everyone should know and prepare for.

J. P. Gownder is a vice president and principal analyst with expertise in devices and platforms. His research covers the role that technology innovations play in the workforce, employee experience, and the adoption of emerging technologies. He leads Forrester’s research into the impact artificial intelligence, automation, and robotics have on the future of the economy and the workforce.

The Power of Fusing Brand and Culture

Join us this Thursday at 5pm ET for the Future-Proof Workplace show!

Independently, culture and brand are powerful, often unsung, business drivers. But when you fuse the two together—when you create an interdependent and mutually-reinforcing relationship between how your organization thinks and acts on the inside and how it is perceived and experienced on the outside—you create new growth that isn’t possible by simply cultivating one or the other alone.

If you or your organization is experiencing high turnover or low recruitment success, employee or customer surveys that show lots of room for improvement, or financial performance that is shaky or unpredictable, make sure to join us as we discuss with Denise Lee Yohn, author of FUSION. How integrating brand and culture powers the world’s greatest companies, and learn how Brand-culture fusion has the potential to improve the competitiveness and accelerate the growth of any organization, regardless of its size or type.

Denise Lee Yohn is the go-to expert on brand-building for national media outlets, an in-demand speaker and consultant, and an influential writer. Denise is the author of the bestselling book What Great Brands Do: The Seven Brand-Building Principles that Separate the Best from the Rest (Jossey-Bass), the e-book Extraordinary Experiences: What Great Retail and Restaurant Brands Do, and the highly anticipated new book FUSION: How Integrating Brand and Culture Powers the World’s Greatest Companies (Nicholas Brealey/Hachette Books).
