The Future of Employment: Assessing the Impact of Digitalisation on Work

While most of the effects of digitalisation are unforeseeable, a rise in productivity which would lead to job reductions, at least for a time, is likely. On the other hand, many opportunities will arise for enterprises, employees and the society as a whole. This symposium will address practical and theoretical issues to ensure economic growth in the age of digitalisation. Delegates will have the opportunity to exchange views on the future of workers’ conditions and the necessity to develop digital skills. Furthermore, innovative solutions to prevent negative effects and avoid unemployment will be presented and discussed.

Delegates will:
• Discuss the scope of the current policy framework on digitalisation, its benefits and limits
• Identify the latest measures to unlock the full potential of the digital advances while considering the human aspect
• Explore ways to overcome the lack of data and present innovative ways to gather it
• Consider the evolution of an on-demand economy and its repercussions on the labour market

Date: 25 April 2019
