The way we work is changing and companies are adapting. Fast. Leading companies will become ‘Anywhere Organizations’, enabling seamless workspaces where location is no longer a factor – capitalizing on the global transition. Technology, not location, is the glue holding the distributed organization together.

The pandemic has brought unprecedented human and humanitarian challenges to people and organizations. Worldwide – companies are safeguarding employees and migrating to new ways of working, utilizing the lessons learned from working-from-home to reinvent how work is best organized in the future to create safe, productive, and enjoyable jobs and lives for employees.

Your people/employees are your most critical asset, and to keep the business going, we must make them successful. Employee experience is now a board level conversation.  Companies that do not focus enough on employee experience in 2021 are at a disadvantage.

09.35 – 10.20: Knowledge exchange – group discussion: The Future of Work

Christine Dahl, VP, EUC EMEA from VM Ware will initiate the group discussion on the future of work.

This is an opportunity to debate the stimulus question with your virtual CHRO peers across the Nordics. Participants will be divided into three groups with three different moderators. Each Breakout group brings together peers from across brands and/or industries, creating an open environment for honest discussion and sharing real world experiences from the following questions.

The Future of Work is a major force for positive change at many levels. What does the future of work mean to me? Driving a human employee experience that creates a sense of belonging and meaning at work; supporting new business models for the digital economy and fostering a culture of corporate social responsibility.

The conventional wisdom has always been that offices and location are critical to productivity, culture, and winning the war for talent.

  • But could it be that the satisfaction and productivity people experience working from home is the product of the social capital built up through various social interactions and engagement at work before the pandemic?


  • Can corporate cultures and communities survive without physical interaction?


  • Will collaboration, mentorship and talent development be impaired without physical interaction?


  • Are people happy with working from home only because they believe it is temporary and not permanent?


  • Employee experience is a journey comprised of moments that matter – where do we start and how do we execute on a strategy by placing our employees at the center?


10.20 – 10.30: Follow-up on Group Discussion.

10.30: Thank you
