Day 1 – 14 May 2024, Tuesday

12:30pm – 2pm

Prof. Dave Ulrich

Masterclass Title: Making Human Capability Happen: Trends and Actions 

This masterclass with enable each participant to have a playbook with innovative ideas and concrete actions to deliver human capability. We will start with the importance of human capability as an integrated framework for creating value. Then, we will discuss the latest trends in each of the four domains of human capability: 

Agenda

  1. Talent: Ensuring the right workforce, individual competence, and people
  2. Organisation: Building the right workplace, organisation capability, and culture
  3. Leadership: Identifying and preparing individual leaders and leadership capability
  4. HR function: Upgrading the HR function with a clear purpose, governance, analytics, competencies, and relationship

We will present the latest research in each of these four areas and participants will have a human capability playbook that they can readily apply in their organisation. 

Day 2 – 15 May 2024, Wednesday

12:30pm – 2pm

Prof. Daniel Susskind

Masterclass Title: Preparing HR for the Future of Work 

This masterclass explores the future of the professions, drawing on Daniel Susskind’s best-selling books, The Future of the Professions (2015; 2017) and A World Without Work (2020). Traditionally, many people have imagined that only blue-collar workers are challenged by automation; yet white collar-workers are now within reach as well. In the future, we will neither need nor want professionals – accountants, lawyers, doctors, teachers, architects, the clergy, consultants, and many others — to work as they did in the 20th century. In this pragmatic and optimistic masterclass, Daniel Susskind explains why, and sets out how HR leaders can prepare to flourish in the decades to come. 

Agenda

Part 1: Two Futures 

To open the masterclass, I set out two futures for the professions, both of which rest upon technology: the first is reassuringly familiar but the second is more challenging. Then, to open minds, I ask (and answer) why we have the professions at all, explore the people and institutions at the vanguard of the professions who are using technology to solve traditional problems in very different ways, and identify several critical trends that are unfolding in the professions. This part is in three sections: 

Futures 
Vanguard 
Trends 

Part 2: Technology and AI 

The cases and trends identified in Part 1 are predominantly driven by technology. To begin Part 2, I very briefly describe the key features of current technological progress in general. But then I turn to look at one technology in more detail: AI. I explain the shift that has taken place in the field over the last decade, how it is challenging our long-standing assumptions about what machines can and cannot do — and, most importantly, why these changes are so significant for thinking about the future of professionals. This part is in two sections: 

Technology 
AI 

Part 3: How HR Leaders Can Prepare 

In the final part, I turn to how HR leaders can best respond now to the challenges set out in Part 1 and 2. I explain how to think clearly about the impact of technology on work (i.e. individual ‘tasks’ not entire ‘jobs’), identity the skills that will be necessary to flourish in decades to come (i.e. a challenge of ‘’mass re-deployment’ not ‘mass unemployment’) and briefly describe how the Covid-19 pandemic interacts with these technological challenges and opportunities. I close with a set of tasks for further thought and action and suggest a productive mindset for thinking about the future (‘blank sheet thinking, outcome focused’). This part is in three sections:  

Work 
Covid-19 
Action

Dr. Anna Tavis

Masterclass Title: Humanising the Digital Workplace: Strategies for Next Generation HR Innovation. 

The workshop will focus on the overview of how HR can shape the role of technology in the workplace to enhance human values for all. 

Assess the current landscape and examine how technology could be a powerful tool in advancing inclusive and personalized practices ranging from recruitment to performance management, advanced total rewards practices, and an enhanced focus on well being and mental health at work. The workshop will conclude with considerations for ethical technology adoption focused on privacy, fairness and inclusivity.
