Will leaders slow automation to allow their human workers to catch up? That choice is something HR has the opportunity to help articulate for leaders
In its Future of Jobs Report 2018, the World Economic Forum estimated that by 2022 75 million current job roles may be displaced by automation, while in parallel 133 million new job roles may emerge.
It is perhaps not surprising therefore that the most oft quoted challenge I hear from HR and People Analytics Leaders is that of skills and workforce planning. When it comes to tackling these challenges not many have their finger as much on the pulse as John Boudreau.
I caught up recently with John at the Global Executive Retreat co-hosted by Insight222 and TI People for a group of over 60 forward thinking HR leaders.
John and I also found time to record an episode of the Digital HR Leaders Podcast, where we explored some of the themes from the Think Tank as well as the ideas presented in his recent Reinventing Jobs book, co-authored with Ravin Jesuthasan.

In our conversation, John and I discuss:
- The reorganisation of work and the far-reaching implications for HR
- Examples of companies and leaders who are successfully embracing the future of work such as Siemens and IBM
