Jacob Morgan, Futurist, Author, & Keynote Speaker on the Future of Work and Employee Experience

After graduating with honors in business management economics and psychology from the University of California Santa Cruz, Jacob Morgan was excited to join the corporate world. At his first job he was told that he’d be traveling the country, meeting with executives and entrepreneurs, and doing all sorts of exciting work. A few months in, he was stuck doing data entry, cold calling, and PowerPoint presentations. One day the CEO came out of his nice corner office, handed Jacob a $10 bill and said, “I’m late for a meeting, go grab me a cup of coffee, and get something for yourself as well.” That was the last corporate job he ever had.

Today, Jacob Morgan is a trained futurist and one of the world’s leading authorities on the future of work, employee experience, and leadership. He speaks in front of tens of thousands of people each year and his content is seen over a million times a year. Jacob is the best-selling author of three books: The Employee Experience Advantage (2017), The Future of Work (2014), The Collaborative Organization (2012), and his forthcoming book on the future of leadership will be released towards the end of 2019. He speaks at over 50 conferences a year including TED Academy which is one of the largest TED events in the world. His topics range from AI and automation, management and leadership, the future of work, the 4th industrial revolution, employee experience, the internet of things, and many others. In addition, Jacob provides advisory and thought leadership services to various organizations around the world.

He is the founder of The Future of Work University at FutureOfWorkUniversity.com, an online education and training platform that helps individuals and organizations thrive in the rapidly changing world of work. Courses explore topics such as employee experience, the future of work, and leadership skills. Jacob also created “The Future If,” a global community of business leaders, authors and futurists who explore what our future can look like IF certain technologies, ideas, approaches and trends actually happen. The community looks at everything from AI and automation to leadership and management practices to augmented reality and virtual reality, the 4th industrial revolution and everything in between.

His work has been endorsed by the CEOs of Nestle, Best Buy, Cisco, SAP, KPMG, Schneider Electric, T-Mobile, Whirlpool, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Zappos, Atari, and many others.

In addition, Jacob hosts The Future of Work Podcast a weekly show where he speaks with senior executives, authors, and business leaders about how the world of work is changing. His Youtube series, The Future in 5, explores the latest concepts and ideas around the future of work with inspiring and educational 2-3 minute snippets which are all professionally shot and edited.

He has also contributed to and been cited in publications such as Cosmopolitan, The Wall Street Journal, NPR, CNN, Glamour, the MIT Sloan Management Review, USA Today, and The Harvard Business Review.

The Experiential Organization: How The Best Organizations Are Winning the War for Talent and Crushing the Competition

Investment in employee engagement has never been higher yet scores have never been lower, how can that be the case? For decades we have been investing in short-term “adrenaline shot” programs such free food or work from home Friday’s with no impact for employees or the organization. Instead of forcing people into outdated workplace practices the world’s top companies are redesigning work around their people by focusing on three environments: culture, technology, and the physical workspace. Based on Jacob’s ongoing research of 252 organizations, he will share why employee experience is the next big area of investment, what the top companies are doing, and how you can go about creating an Experiential Organization. The future of work is all about the employee experience.

  • Why and how the workplace is changing
  • The three employee experience environments: culture, physical space, and technology
  • Employee experience vs employee engagement
  • How to design and create employee experiences

  • What employees care about most in the workplace

The outcome of this research reveals the most crucial skills and mindsets that individuals must possess if they want to be effective leaders in the future of work.

Us or Them? The Role of Robots, Automation, and Humans in the Future of Work

The concept of Ai and automation isn’t new, for thousands of years humans have been obsessed with trying to create “things” that are better, faster, and stronger than us. Author Pamela McCorduck said that AI is “our wish to forge the gods,” but what happens when that wish finally comes true? As the speed of technology progress continues to accelerate and as AI becomes more capable, what does that mean for humans and for jobs? Research shows that millions of jobs around the world are at risk of being automated but the business leaders that Jacob works with and interviews are saying the exact opposite, so who do we believe? In this exciting talk Jacob will explore the history of AI, the current research and trends fueling the AI debate, and the most crucial skills and jobs that we as humans can possess to thrive in a technology and AI driven world.

Key points discussed

  • How AI has evolved over the years and where we are today
  • Recent AI research
  • Multiple perspectives of the AI debate (job creation and destruction)
  • Real-life examples and stories of companies using AI Leadership in a technology driven world
  • Skills for the future
