Conversations for Tomorrow #6

Nurturing the future of work – how organizations empower talent

Through our quarterly journal, Conversations for Tomorrow, the Capgemini Research Institute enables leaders to identify the strategic imperatives for the future of business and the society in which it operates.

Over the past few years, organizations have had to adapt at an unprecedented pace to a constantly changing and highly uncertain business environment. And they have made fundamental changes across various dimensions as a result.

Perhaps one of the biggest areas of change has concerned the way in which organizations approach their most important asset – their employees – as well as the nature of work as a whole.

In the sixth edition of our quarterly journal, Conversations for Tomorrow, we look at how organizations can successfully implement the transformations necessary to thrive in the future of work. We evaluate strategies such as refining and strengthening purpose, empowering talent, nurturing future skills, and instilling a trust-based culture.

There are many questions spinning around the future of work, and, as we seek to provide answers, we are grateful to all the leaders and experts who contributed their thoughts to this journal. Our contributors come from the worlds of economics, business, academia, and sports, and include:

  • A Nobel laureate in Economics
  • The CEOs of Schneider Electric and Capgemini
  • The European Commissioner for Jobs and Social Rights
  • CHROs and senior executives from HSBC, Ericsson, Stellantis, ANZ, Microsoft, LinkedIn, and Girls Who Code
  • Academics and experts from the Harvard Business School and the OECD
  • A Rugby World Cup winner
  • Plus, an array of Capgemini’s own subject-matter experts.

By bringing together key insights from leaders in their respective fields, we aim to help chart a clear course to the future of work that we can all follow. Download our report to learn more.

The Capgemini Research Institute spoke with Jean-Pascal Tricoire, CEO of Schneider Electric, and Aiman Ezzat, CEO of Capgemini, to understand their views on the future of hybrid work.

Labor markets have been under stress in recent years. The growth of automation technology, the pandemic, and the rise of remote work are all impacting the world of work in many ways. The Capgemini Research Institute spoke to Prof. Christopher Pissarides, winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics to understand how work is changing.

Being an effective, inspiring leader requires learning from the best. And no better set of people to learn from than world-class athletes. The Capgemini Research Institute spoke to Stacey Fluhler, champion rugby player from New Zealand.
