What: Joyce Maroney, executive director of The Workforce Institute at Kronos Incorporated, welcomes Julia Hobsbawm, OBE, fellow board member, and a leading commentator on modern connectedness and the future of work, to discuss her new research, “The APPlied Human at Work,” which examines the impact of technology in the workplace and suggests ideas for how employers can realize the benefits of technology while caring for the human beings who work there.

Among the topics discussed include:

  • How technology contributes to employee stress and burnout – and what organizations could be doing to mitigate those impacts;
  • How leaders can balance technological advances and workplace productivity with a person’s ability to absorb them;
  • Education and training strategies that will best prepare workers for collaboration with AI and automation; and
  • Complications that may arise when technology blurs the boundaries between an employee’s professional and personal life.
