Here are some of the topics we'll be exploring at this forum:
- Offices of the future: we'll look at how leading flexible workspace operators in Shanghai are creating offices that allow workers to be more productive, healthier and happier than ever before.
- Skills & careers of the future: as automation and AI slowly seeps into everything we do, the skills we need and careers we can expect must change.
- Dark interactions & employee data: sensors, wearables and big data crunching make it easy to track employees' health statistics, productivity levels, but is it a good thing?
- Work-life balance: as the nature and requirements of work change, how will our workflows and tasks transform alongside our social lives (workday transformation, commuting, remote working, social interaction)
- Creative communities & meeting spaces: the percentage of 'digital nomads', 'gig workers' and freelancers in our workforce continues to grow, and careers are becoming increasingly modular and remote. As a result, the importance of work communities and meeting spaces has increased rapidly. We'll explore the successful ingredients for constructing these spaces in China.
