Like-minded influencers from across Scotland discussed the challenges and opportunities in developing new skills in the current workforce for the changing roles of tomorrow. It was a stimulating and lively discussion, guided by chair, Linda Steedman, CEO, eCom Scotland.
A strong theme from the discussion was the impact of automation as a result of digital transformation and how business models will need to change as a result.
The impact of industry 4.0; the drive for enhanced employee engagement and productivity; and the need to retain a positive working culture were also central to the discussion.
Linda Steedman, eCom CEO, said: “The roundtable was a great platform to discuss the issues that are currently front-of-mind for Scottish business leaders on the future of work and we were delighted to be able to facilitate this discussion. It was also great to see the enthusiasm for learning technologies and the positive impact they can have on improving productivity in organisations’.
