PREPARING FOR JOBS OF THE FUTURE

As part of our research into the future of work, we try to understand what workplaces and working habits will look like in the near future. In her books, Lynda Gratton has written extensively about the kinds of jobs that are dying out – but what sort of careers are about to emerge?

We were fascinated by a recent BBC Radio 5 Live programme which addressed this – and highlighted the importance of keeping a close eye on developing trends. More

LYNDA GRATTON ON ABC RADIO

As part of the Australian launch of The 100-Year Life: Living and Work in an Age of Longevity, Lynda talked to ABC’s Richard Aedy about just how drastically we need to change our approach to life - including saving more money for retirement, investing in ongoing training and abandoning traditional career models.

You can still listen to the interview online – catch it while you can on the ABC website.


WHO’S IN OUR NETWORK – RHONDA BRIGHTON-HALL

This week’s friend is Rhonda Brighton-Hall – a Sydney-based former FoW member and long-time Hot Spots friend. Rhonda is a great HR thinker with a focus on transformation – she has helped a number of financial institutions and large global organisations transform their approach to workplace culture and diversity. She is also known for her ability to concentrate on the human side of human resources - which unfortunately is often not the case with HR professionals. HR specialists like Rhonda are at the heart of what we do, and we have really enjoyed learning from her and learning with her over the years.

AUSTRALIA’S DISCRIMINATION COMMISSIONER MAKES LONGEVITY A PRIORITY

It’s always interesting to see who else has lengthening life spans and careers on their agenda - and the latest one we’ve come across is Susan Ryan, Australia’s Age and Disability Discrimination Commissioner.

In a recent report, Susan highlighted that people in their 50s who lose their jobs could remain unemployed for decades – and that with life expectancy continuing to lengthen, changes need to be made to ensure that employees don’t find themselves shut out of work. More

WELCOMING NEW TEAM MEMBERS

We’re delighted to announce the appointment of a new team member here at The Hot Spot Movement. Atem Mbeboh is our new Head of Business Development. Atem has over 10 years’ experience supporting senior decision makers with data driven advice and insight – most recently at political pollster, YouGov – and is excited about the opportunity to get to grips with qualitative data. We’re inspired by his diversity of interests – as well as studying International Relations and Politics at Nottingham Trent University, Atem fundraises for ATE Ghana, a charity committed to poverty reduction through helping small, sustainable businesses thrive and takes a keen interest in current affairs and sports. Make sure you say hello at our next Hot Spots event.
