Knowledge Workers (http://en.wikipedia.o...) are the primary drivers of business activity, with knowledge workers outnumbering non-knowledge workers 4 to 1. The term, defined as one who works primarily with information or one who develops and uses knowledge in the workplace, was coined by Peter Drucker in 1959.
Knowledge workers are faced with high levels of autonomy in their day-to-day work roles yet are expected to pull together en-masse with the rest of the workforce. To thrive in today's society Knowledge Workers need to be both information and technologically literate.
Our talk events, Knowledge Workers Toronto, aim at the practices and management to benefit the needs of the knowledge worker, such that the knowledge worker, and consequently the organizations that hire them, can make sustained and best of their talents. Our aim is to bridge the insights of the knowledge worker, corporations, and academics in a practical, lighthearted and informative way.
