Future of Work in Scotland

Start date and time

Monday 3 September 2018


The Lighthouse, Mitchell Lane, Glasgow

This interactive workshop, targeted at senior HR professionals, examines the effect of key changes in society on the nature and meaning of work in Scotland. The Scottish labour market is undergoing extensive transformation as a result demographic change, digitisation, and the changing organisation of work. Increasing numbers of older workers remain in work. While technological change can deliver cost-savings to business, it potentially threatens job opportunities and raises questions about the appropriateness of current education systems as preparation for work. Increasing numbers of people are becoming trapped in precarious and poor quality jobs.

The event examined the implications of these changes for HR policy and practice, as well as skills requirements in the Scottish labour market. The event was co-led by a graphic facilitator who captured key discussion points in the form of a graphic illustration.
