TEDxBarcelonaSalon - The future of work

About this event :

What is the future of work? We will undoubtedly work from home much more than before the pandemic. But other aspects of work have also changed, are changing and will change. What are these aspects and what skills do we need to be able to work on what we like? And if we like to work from home, what advantages does it have and what are its challenges? To discuss all this we have invited two experts in the field: Pablo Hernandez is partner at McKinsey, where he has led multiple studies on the future of work and the necessary retraining in society. He has also been CEO of “Generation Spain”, a foundation in charge of retraining young people for employment. Pablo talked to us about the latest study that he has led on the challenges of work in the future, that can be seen here.

We have also invited Virginia Cabrera. Virgina has worked over 20 year at Telefónica as a Digital Transformation specialist, she is the founder of the company Cultivando Mentes Digitales and author of the book Disfruta teletrabajando. She worked for twenty years from home and gave us her recommendations on how to work from home successfully. Pablo Hernandez - Virginia Cabrera
