The Future of our Workforce
The World Economic Forum says we are now entering the fourth Industrial Revolution, one where we no longer are taking steps, but leaps forward. Considering exponential integration of technology and accessibility of information being greater now than ever before, what stories are we telling to attract the right candidates to the workforce? More so, how are we finding purpose in the work we do and happiness in the lives we live? In his presentation, Eric talks about the importance of community and belonging at work. The conversation about the future of work is bigger than Millennials and generations, and spans wider than technology and workplace aesthetic- it is about people and creating a life each of us can enjoy living through the work we do.
The Cost of Connection
Over 90% of the information on the internet today was put there in the past two years. With 40% of corporate America feeling an unprecedented sense of loneliness, and the average person spending over 3.5 hours on our phones a day, the way we connect is changing. The ‘Honeymoon Phase’ of technology is here, and we’re in the eye of the storm. How do we balance the increasing dependency of technology while still getting the most out of the people and relationships around us on a daily basis? What do we need to do to build a modern team that leverages technology, but still gets to know people for who they are. In this presentation, Eric provides tips and tricks that wow the audience and leaves them with tangible takeaways to live a more connected life.
We used to strive to live ‘The Dream’, which typically included a nice house with a white picket fence, two kids, a dog, and maybe even a cat. The ‘American Dream’ though, is outdated; the world around us is moving too quickly and the definition of what it means to be successful is changing- fast. The American Dream is really now an American’s Dream – one where each person can have their own view of what it means to be successful. Each requires a different plan and the ability to not conform to what society tells us we need to do to be successful. In this presentation, Eric talks about the evolution of the world we live in today and how technology, changing times, and an continental appetite to break the norm enables us to live a life that makes us all a little happier.
