Chatham House was founded in 1920 with a vision ‘to help governments and societies build a sustainably secure, prosperous and just world’. In the institute’s centenary year, the annual Future of Work conference will examine the megatrends reshaping the global economy and labour markets to assess how economies can sustainably transition to new patterns of skills and employment, demographic changes, and technological developments.
This conference will be held virtually and will address the organizational, policy and regulatory challenges posed by technological change across different sectors, focusing on the best ways to enhance productivity while protecting individual workers and equipping them with the necessary skills for the future. Discussions will explore key questions including:
What have remote working measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic revealed about the 21st century workplace and its ability to evolve and adapt?
What is the best way to create sustainable, rewarding career pathways in the face of digitisation?
What does work look like from place to place and for different groups of people?
What is the scope for shaping career paths for an ageing demography of workers, and for workers facing untraditional first jobs?
How should the transition to a system of lifelong learning be managed?
