Peter Cheese - 1 February 2017
Peter Cheese, Chief Executive of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), delivered a lecture entitled "Future of work and organisations".
Addressing a packed audience, Peter Cheese explained the forces shaping the future of our work and how he thought the world was changing at a rapid pace. He explains the changing nature of jobs and why putting your people first is still important even in the face of technological advances in the workplace.
Peter discusses the ‘people’ agenda, the important of mental health awareness and the growing skills mismatch within the economy. Peter poses the question of who is responsible for the skills landscape, and the changing landscape of sourcing, attracting and retaining talent.
In conclusion Peter suggested businesses should “unpick the rules, burn the policies and look at what you really want to do”.
