Join RSM Discovery Live: the future of work

A series of three live events that bring you to the forefront of business and management knowledge; learning from experts, engaging in debate, and networking with the business community at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM).

Digitisation is underway. Company decisions are increasingly based on big data and employees can use technology to work anytime, anywhere. And at the same time, insights gathered from neurobiological research are changing how businesses assess and manage employees’ capabilities.

You’re invited to explore with us how this affects employees and employers, at RSM Discovery Live: the future of work. Our new series of three events will feature:

  • top researchers from RSM to provide the academic fuel for debate with evidence from research and case studies
  • executive speakers to engage RSM academics, giving insights into their company’s strategic responses
  • a networking reception to conclude.

RSM Discovery Live event: Who can beat the bots?

Artificial intelligence (AI) is poised to take over many tasks formerly performed by humans. While the benefits of bots are already making our daily lives more efficient, the underlying question remains: is my job threatened by AI? How will my organisation survive? How do I remain relevant in the digital workplace?

At ‘RSM Discovery Live: Who can beat the bots?’, presented on Wednesday 31 May 2017 at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM), those thorny questions were addressed by guest speakers comprising leaders in corporate L&D, HR and corporate learning architecture. They presented cases taken from their organisations’ current initiatives aimed at integrating humans and technology in the workplace. Their perspectives and experiences were discussed by an expert panel made up by RSM Professor Henk Volberda and Marlies Timmerman, CEO of Horizon Training & Development. What does it take to keep yourself - and your employees - relevant in the digital workplace? Read more about the event here.
