The FOW Community Future of Work Forum covers all the latest trends that compete for your attention. Twice a year, we bring together participants representing a variety of roles within their organizations to discuss cutting edge strategies that work, and to find inspiration and practical takeaways from the best in the business.

Embarking on our our third event, the Spring 2016 Future of Work Forum, Presented by Aon, will attract an esteemed group of subject-matter experts, practitioners and academicians leading others into the future of work.

The agenda includes thought-provoking speaker presentations, interactive Q&A discussions, insightful offsite tours from experts, and networking activities, all designed to help participants learn new strategies, problem solve and share their experiences with others.

The two themes we will be covering are:

Empowering HR and Employees with Digital – Creating a “Connected Company”
and Winning the War for Talent.

For two days, we'll cover key issues, from disrupting the traditional workplace environment to increasing employee engagement.
