The future of work and the evolution of skills in the energy sector

Date: 13 February 2020
Time: 09:00 – 18:00h
Location: The Atrium, Strawinskylaan 3051, 1077 ZX Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Companies are constantly challenged to adapt to socioeconomic developments, rapidly emerging technologies and the growing importance of data. These innovations lead to new industries and business models, yet at the same time create an enormous impact on how people communicate and work together.

A disruptive transformation of the workforce and work processes is a direct consequence of evolving corporate strategies. Many traditional roles need to be altered or even eliminated, and new ones will come to surface.

What does this mean for the energy sector and how can organisational structures become future-proof? With this one-day programme we will focus on the transformation of HR in energy and the evolution of skills. With a deep-dive into new forms of work, preferred skill-sets of the workforce and future focused strategies for HR leaders.
