Event description

Description

Digitalisation is removing or changing the shape of entry-level and development roles for engineering and other technical talent.

Industry has an aging workforce. It has skills and knowledge which must be transferred to the younger generations if these skills are to be retained.

The ‘Gig’ economy is emerging in other sectors and is forecast to extend to the process industry as technology and platforms develop.

  • How will the process industry attract and develop the technical talent it needs for the future?
  • How can its current managers motivate this talent to remain in the industry?

This conference will present research findings and opinions from industry, professional organisations, local authorities and from the youngest ‘Connected’ generation. It will consider future workplace scenarios, their risks and opportunities for the process industry. Participants will be encouraged to give their own feedback on the research and opinion presented through online interaction throughout the event.

Join up to 100 participants, mainly practicing industry managers, but also students (incl engineering students), industrial and employment policy-makers and representatives of industry associations – industry stakeholders currently building their knowledge base on this imminent workplace challenge.

Please fill in the 10-minute Survey - Managing Talent in an Increasingly Freelance (or 'Gig') Economy

This survey will help us to collect views from practicing managers on how companies in our industry sector currently engage with professionals on a short-term, possibly freelance, basis; the drivers and obstacles to this, and related views on attracting, developing and retaining talent.A report distilled from this survey and follow-up questions will be presented in the #EIILResearchConference Series in September-October 2018. Participants at these conferences will be asked to complete a similar survey during the conference, but this time projecting their thoughts to respond for their view of their company in 5 to 10 years time.A final report from the two surveys and conference inputs will be presented at the EIIL Members' day on November 29th in Brussels.
