The End of Jobs: Rise of On-Demand Labor and Agile Corporations

We stand on the precipice of the fourth industrial revolution driven by Robots and Artificial Intelligence (AI). What can we learn from the history of the first three industrial revolutions about how workers, company and society have adjusted to a step function in technological change. Will history offer any guidance? Are we facing technological unemployment and the end of jobs as we know it?

Jeff Wald, co-founder of WorkMarket, will tackle these issues and report on the rise of On-Demand Labor. He will provide insights on how Corporations have had to think differently about the way in which they are structured to handle the change in workforce. In doing this, HR and Business leaders will be prepared to meet their business objectives and strategies in new and innovative ways to sustain their future growth.

In this session, you will learn:

    • About the history of work and how the supply and demand dynamics between workers and companies drive the power balance between the parties
    • About the current state of the labor market including long term trends that help drive the world of work as we know it today
    • How the on-demand labor market is driving the current labor market and implications for the future of work
    • How the robots and AI are going to impact the near and long term future of work and what that will mean for workers, companies and society.
