The way in which people work is changing and one company at the forefront of innovations leading us into the future is HCL Technologies.

HCL knows that technology is changing work as we know it and, as a partner of IDC's Future of Work event in Leuven, the company helps drive the tech conversation.

Sounds exciting, right? As HCL helps bring workplaces forward into the future, there really is no better time than now to join the company.

HCL is ready for the ‘new normal’

It is estimated by IDC that by 2024, 50% of structured repeatable tasks will be automated and 20% of workers in knowledge-intensive tasks will have AI-infused software or other digitally connected technology as a "co-worker”.

IDC's Future of Work event is designed to support the technology revolution, by putting cultural and organizational transformation into the spotlight with ‘employees’ at its heart.

HCL recognises that can be difficult for companies to implement Future of Work strategies and it that can requires great collaboration for people to work with multi-sourced online communities, working across ecosystems, artificial intelligence, augmented humans, and machines on a daily basis.

The Future of Work conference provides a framework to drive transformation across companies’ work spaces, work cultures and workforces.

HCL engages in the event's cobversations around aspects including:

  • How Technology is Changing Work-Space, Force and Culture
  • Driving Work Transformation whilst Advancing Forward in your FoW Journey
  • Securing Flexible Work Styles in the Borderless Enterprise
  • How to Break Silos and Drive Collaboration Across Teams
  • Augmenting your Workforce with Intelligent Technologies

A future where human intelligence takes the helm

Some workers may have some fears about automation having increasing presence in the workplaces of the future. Rahul Singh, President, Financial Services Sales, HCL Technologies, explains that there are many positives to be seen.

“Modern data sciences, machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI), natural-language processing (NLP) and cognitive computing can eliminate the drudgery involved in executing hundreds of tiresome financial processes. With 'finnovation' advancing, soon work may not seem like work anymore. Instead, technology will take over jobs in fields such as compliance, trade settlements and cross border payments.” explains Rahul.

“Employees will once more be able to use their intelligence, intellect and intuition - characteristics that are critical to business, and that machines do not possess - to become innovators and explorers. More importantly, they can use the available time to improve customer experience, which is more art than science,” he suggests.

Future of work

Demand for certain skills in the workplace is changing

In order to improve the velocity of business transformation, the workplace must undergo even more change to make jobs feel less like jobs, suggests HCL's Rahul.

"The physical workplace must use an ‘agile’ working and ergonomic philosophy. This means seeing work as an activity and not a place. Performance is emphasized over attendance. Team work is valued over individual contributions. Relationships matter, not hierarchies. Sustainability wins over aesthetics," he says.

Certain skills are becoming more important for future workplaces as processes and environments change and develop.
