[Partner Event] COVID’s impact on Reshaping Jobs and Automation

  • 12 May 2021
  • Zoom event

The notion that you must be together in an office to do your best work has been tested. Post COVID – we will not know for a while. We do know that remote work is feasible and at least part time – preferable by many.

How does the COVID impact the degree of automating portions of jobs? We have asked two very qualified thought leaders to share their perspective. John Boudreau is a leading authority and best-selling author on the future of jobs and automation. Forrest Whyte has led the implementation of automation in HR at Automation Anywhere – the world’s leading RPA supplier.

John Boudreau, Senior Research Scientist and Professor Emeritus at University of Southern California.

Topic: COVID’s impact on Reshaping Jobs and Automation

John will discuss how automation was accelerated due to COVID and transition into automation requiring choices between "replacing-augmenting-reinventing" human work, and work deconstruction and reinvention as the currency. He plans to touch on the idea that COVID has revealed and accelerated the idea that work design is the next grand experiment in agile innovation.

Forrest Whyte, VP, Total Rewards and HR/TA Technology at Automation Anywhere;
