August 27-29, 2017 – 13th Annual Retreat
For 13 years the Future of Talent Institute has been predicting and discussing talent and development trends with some of the sharpest talent-related minds in the world. Most of the key expectations and trends we have predicted have or are coming to fruition.
At this year’s retreat we will investigate four major issues we see that will cause significant disruption to the talent landscape in the not too distant future.

Four Factors of Talent Disruption
2017 Retreat Agenda
Intelligent Process Automation & Digitization
Advances in analytics, automation, and the Internet of Things, along with innovations in areas such as machine learning and artificial intelligence are showing promise of reducing costs and speeding transactions thus improving the candidate and employee experience and productivity. These tools have the capacity to transform experiences in many ways, often by creating the potential for self-service. Digital can also reshape time-consuming transactional and manual tasks that are part of internal work streams, especially when multiple systems are involved.
Design Thinking & Process Redesign
Candidates and employees have more choices and expect more. Demand for skills has grown faster than the supply, which has made this even a larger issue than it was. There needs to be a shift from uncoordinated efforts within HR siloes to an integrated improvement program organized around candidate journeys. From being a candidate to an employee should be seamless, streamlined and integrated. Rather than continue to use individual, stand-alone technologies and operations in a piecemeal manner inside siloes, we need to transition using them in combination and in the right sequence to achieve impact. In the words of GE’s Jeff Immelt, put in place “a local capability inside a global footprint.”
A.I. and I.A. – The Intelligent Edge
Artificial Intelligence, along with machine learning and predictive analytics are playing larger and larger role in recruitment, learning, and in HR. We will discuss the future implications of these technologies and explore whether we should be concerned or not about their impact HR, talent management, recruitment and learning.
Intelligent Augmentation (I.A.) is also key to how humans will work and live with A.I.
We will have a surprise discussion leader for this session – someone key to the future of A.I. and a seminal figure in the development of A.I. enabled technologies. We will be able to share his name and bio with you soon.
The End of Jobs: Networks & Skills Become Key
Work has become collaborative, often virtual, interdependent, and requires a mix of skills and talent that is constantly changing, churning and evolving.
Jobs are atomizing – jobs that were highly specialized are beginning to be broken up into constituent parts. The gig economy, the shorter-term nature of many projects, and the constant churn of development will force a very different approach to how we look at work and who does what needs to be done. Searching for skills and finding expertise in networks will become a dominant trend over the next few years. Workforce composition – the mix of permanent, temporary, contractor, consultant, will also become a core requirement for HR to grapple with.

2014 USA Attendee
The location was perfect to disconnect and relax. The number of attendees was perfect so we could really get to know each other. The small group work was fantastic and exercise like Global Cafe were so engaging and effective.
What I liked most was the ability to have deeper and longer range discussions with my peers in the industry, and particularly getting a broader perspective from many different industries and geographies.
