Embracing Disruption in the Workplace

Even before COVID-19, the digital workplace was rapidly changing. COVID-19 accelerated this trend, rapidly shifting our value systems, priorities, investments, processes, access, and understanding of what is and is not possible.

Canadian organizations are redefining their operating model to allow for more flexibility for their employees. IDC research shows that 79% of Canadian companies changed their remote work / telecommunication policies, and a further 68% made investments in remote working tools early in the pandemic.

On December 10, IDC Canada Research Director - Future of Work, Evan Hardie, Director – Workspace Technology Engineering, BMO, Ryan Coleman and Rakshit Ghura, Vice President & Global Business Head – Digital Workplace Business, HCL Technologies will get together for “Embracing Disruption in the Workplace: People, Technology and Culture.” Hardie, Ghura will provide guidance on how Canadian organizations can create the digital workplace of the future.

Key topics include:

  • How COVID-19 accelerated digital workplace trends in Canada.
  • The investments and actions Canadian organizations have prioritized
  • The future work force and skills gap
  • The technical and cultural implications of the digital workplace of the future
  • Critical success factors for building a seamless, connected, hyper-contextualized, digital resilient workplace model for the future

Our discussion will include IDC Canada’s most recent research and real-world examples of how organizations are embracing disruption in the workplace.
