Let’s explore the 5 Biggest Future of Work Trends in 2024 that your team should know.

1. AI & The Workforce

The rise of artificial intelligence (AI) is both exciting and daunting for organizations. Due to misinformation, fear of AI has been generated among industries and employees. For example, according to a 2023 Gartner survey, 22% of employees worried that AI would replace their jobs within five years. How should employers react to employee worries about AI?

Our Change Management speakers & Artificial Intelligence (AI) speakers work with teams like yours to combat any stressors and develop logical solutions to encourage your employees to work with AI, not against it. When approached without fear, our speakers can teach your audiences that AI is a helpful tool.

AI Speakers to Consider: Jared Lindzon, Justice Faith Betty, Iliana Oris Valiente, Takara Small, Duncan Wardle, Lital Marom, Eric Termuende

2. Shorter Workweeks

Shorter workweeks are no longer controversial among CEOs and company executives; they are the future. In a 2022 Gartner survey, 63% of candidates responded that they would opt for a four-day workweek rather than a 10% raise.

These shortened workdays have a positive impact on your employees as they are proven to lower sick days, burnout and the likelihood of an employee quitting. With talent shortages, supply chain shortages and inflation, this is a great solution for organizations – and their employees alike. Our Workforce and HR speakers can help your team organize new ways to break traditional cycles and implement new work methods for the future.

Speakers to Consider: Mark DeVolder, Eric Termuende, Celina Caesar-Chavannes, Jennifer Moss, Dr. Jody Carrington, Andre Picard

3. Collaboration in the Workplace

Our keynote speakers encourage teams to work smarter, not harder. Talent Bureau’s motivational leadership speakers are the key to building teams that meaningfully work together and achieve phenomenal results.

In collaborative workplace environments, employees feel supported, leading to higher innovation and productivity! With increased productivity and innovation, leaders can expect over-of-this-world results in the workplace.

Speakers to Consider:  Dr. Jody Carrington, Earvin “Magic” Johnson, Suneel Gupta, Anthony Morgan, Julie Angus, Colin Angus, Ricky Forbes

4. Conflict Resolution in the Workplace

Leaders should harness the critical tools needed to resolve employee conflicts in the workplace. Workplace tensions can grow high in light of the 2024 US Presidential Elections, labour strikes, geopolitical crises, inflation, and other societal rifts. Differences in opinions can greatly impact teamwork and cause struggles in and outside the workplace.

Leaders across industries must adopt the must-have skills to approach and manage conflicts with meaning in the workplace. Our leadership and DEI speakers can provide relevant insight into becoming a better team leader and developing the best conflict resolution strategies.
