On the 16th June 2020, Bridgeall facilitated a Virtual Roundtable covering ‘The Future of Work in a Post-COVID-19 Digital World’.


With 145 senior leaders from a very broad range of sectors registered to attend, the highly interactive session included a short Panel Discussion and Guest Speakers, supported by a very active Meeting Chat Forum for participants to share their own thoughts and experiences.


The event provided high level insight into the issues and challenges facing organisations in a VUCAD world – Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous and DIGITAL.


We hope that this short paper, summarising the main themes and outcomes from the Roundtable, contributes to the on-going debate regarding the Future of Work in the new economy.


Four key themes emerged from the discussion:


  • The Agile Dilemma – Sustaining the Momentum for Change
  • Modern Workplace Technologies Critical to Successful Transformation
  • People and Culture
  • Leadership in a VUCAD World


The final section of the paper, ‘The Way Forward’, provides a framework for building the Modern Intelligent Workplaces critical to survival and growth in a world where ‘business as usual’ no longer exists.


A massive thank you to everyone who contributed to a highly interactive session. We hope the paper does justice to your thoughts and experiences.
