The Future Company: Culture, Diversity, and Identity Crisis

2–2:15 P.M.

Q&A With Heather McGowan

 

SPONSORED BY

The future of work—for both individuals and organizations—relies on rapid learning, unlearning, and adaptation. Future of work strategist Heather McGowan opens Staffing World with a powerful presentation about what we must do to successfully learn and adapt. We must be willing to let go of “the way we have always done it,” McGowan says, as well as “who we think we are”—which can be even more challenging. Navigating this world of rapid learning, unlearning, and adaptation requires that we become comfortable with ambiguity and vulnerability, allowing us to become champions of human potential in learning tours filled with unknowns. In 2017, LinkedIn ranked McGowan as its No. 1 global voice for education. Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman frequently quotes her in his books and columns and describes McGowan as “the oasis” when it comes to insights into the future of work. McGowan’s insights, analysis, and forecasts help employees and leaders alike prepare for and adapt to jobs that do not yet exist and business environments that continue to evolve.

Let’s face it, training your team often takes a back seat to the chaos that is staffing. Typical training strategy in staffing is “jump in” and make it happen. While learning through osmosis is a fast way to see if your recruiters have what it takes, it can also land your company in legal and financial trouble if bad placements are made. Not to mention the evergreen issue of retention. Change your training strategy, and your time to productivity could be reduced from six months to 30 days. This panel will focus on how any size staffing company can create an onboarding program that addresses these issues and gets the best possible results from its new recruits in the shortest possible time.
