Welcoming the announcement, Robert Mac Giolla Phádraig, Sigmar CCO and founder of Talent Summit (pictured above with last year;s keynote Monica Lewinsky) commented: “We are delighted to announce Sir Bob Geldof as our keynote speaker for Talent Summit 2020. Widely recognised as one of the leading global humanitarians of our time, Bob has always looked to promote sustainability and wellbeing of those less fortunate through his activism.

 

“In an era of digitisation, shifting demographics and corporate citizenship, aligning what truly matters to people in their working world and the world at large matters more than ever before. Sustaining the impact of people and their wellbeing in the workplace and our impact on the world requires a resurgence of humanity in all we do. We look forward to hearing insights from Bob’s activism and humanitarianism to gain a deeper understanding of how we can lead with more compassion and empathy. Now, more than ever before, it is crucial for talent leaders to gather to debate and share strategies for how we can adapt, transform and lead as global/corporate humanitarians with more compassion, kindness and empathy. We are the first generation of talent leaders to experience this rate of change and the last to affect that change for the better.”

SURVEY: Just one third of Workers to Return to the Office Full-time Post-Covid

SURVEY: Just one third of Workers to Return to the Office Full-time Post-Covid

According to the Sigmar/AON Pulse Report on the future of work post-Covid, just 34% of workers will be returning to the office on a full-time basis once Covid restrictions are permanently lifted. 22% of employees are expected to work full-time remotely with the remaining 44% to work hybrid between home and the office. Of this hybrid cohort, 92% will spend three days or less in the office. The Sigmar/AON survey  polled 253 companies in Ireland to get insight into the future of work practices post-Covid. Commenting on the findings Talent Summit founder and Sigmar chief commercial officer Robert Mac Giolla Phádraig says:  “Recent speculation about the future of work has seen a division in thought between commentators and experts regarding the role the office will play in working practices post-Covid. With this poll, we have real insight into how employers are planning for the world of work once restrictions are lifted. The reality is that two thirds of Ireland’s workforce will see permanent changes in their work practices. That is a massive shift that affects the majority of us.”   Remote Working to Spark a Global War for Talent The Sigmar/ AON survey finds that 22% of employees will work full-time remotely. Says Mac Giolla Phádraig:  “Remote work is the emerging front of a world war for talent, being fought virtually and our remote workers the spoils of this war. “Ireland is globally recognised as an epicentre of highly skilled and educated workers, making this cohort of employees an attractive proposition for employers from around the world. “There is now global competition for local talent, requiring an arsenal of new methods and systems to compete, as it’s more about hearts and minds than before. “International competition of this cohort of workers will be fierce, effectively opening up a whole world in which 22% of our workforce can work.” The Future is Hybrid 44% of Ireland’s workforce will work hybrid between office and home.  92% will work three or less days in the office. The reality is that many of us will work hybrid between the office and home. Last year we were challenged by the forced dislocation of the workforce from the workplace. This year, however, we will choose how, by whom and where work gets done, which requires deep consideration as we re-architect work over the coming months. This is a critical moment in time for the next generation of work. Says Mac Giolla Phádraig: “ “According to this survey the future is hybrid.”

The BCIBC is seen as the EU chapter of Boston College’s CEO Club, the second largest CEO forum in the world, next to WEF in Davos.
