ELA Annual Conference 2021 Season

This event is free-of-charge, please book to receive the link to join.

The challenges of the past year have seen arguably the fastest pace of change in the workplace experienced within most of our lifetimes.  This has led  to a number of challenges and differences of opinion amongst employment lawyers in various areas. However the pace of change is unlikely to slow – between the gig economy, digital transformation, the increased adoption of AI and 'big data' in the workplace, as well as a shift away from office-based working to greater flexibility within some sectors, the workplaces of 2025 and 2035 are likely to be substantively different to those of 2019 and 2020. 

These changes bring great opportunity for some businesses – for example in increasing diversity and for recruiting and the best talent, regardless of location. However they will also bring challenges for both employers and, particularly employees. 

The Future World of Work is our keynote panel session, which sits at the centre of the ELA Annual Conference season.

It explores the themes of:

  • the workplace of the future: automation, use of tech, re-skilling workers, shift to ‘globalised’ working;
  • the employment relationship of the future: where the workforce of the future will come from, what the employer will expect from that workforce, and how the two will, or should, work together; and
  • the future of diversity and inclusion: how technology can both assist, but also act as a detriment to, diversity and social mobility.
