C-Suite Forum: Reinventing work as we know it

That was the central theme discussed during the C-Suite Forum at HeadFrist Hoofddorp. Top executives are not finding the right people at the right time with the right skillset and talents are looking for organizations with a strong purpose, values and brand reputation. The Great Reset as a result of  COVID-19 allows for a reorientation from growth, efficiency and ROI, to resilience, flexibility and agility. To support both workers and companies in times of disruption and rapid change, a new work operating system is needed. Ravin Jesuthasan, co-author of the book Work without Jobs.

Four principles

  • ️ Start with the work (current and future tasks) and not the existing jobs
  • ️ Achieve the optimal combination of humans and automation
  • Consider the full array of human work engagements
  • Allow talent to “flow” to work versus being limited to fixed, traditional jobs
