Guest Speaker, Kevin Empey - the future of work

The 'Future of Work' discussed by Executives and Board Members at No. 25 Kildare Street, Dublin 2

On Friday January 24th, CEO's, Senior Executives and Board Leaders alike gathered at No.25 Kildare Street, Dublin 2. Part of our ongoing CEO Lunch Series in association with global consulting firm, Mercer and Irish law firm, Byrne Wallace, a full house listened to the fascinating insights of Kevin Empey, Managing Director of WorkMatters.


This session focused on how the world of work has dramatically changed and will continue to do so at an aggressive pace.

Business leaders agreed that the message has been clear for some time. Major converging forces such as emerging technology, rapid change, globalisation, shifting demographics, gig working and so on are all combining to herald in what is becoming the biggest disruption to the world of work since the industrial revolution.

Declining engagement levels, increasing levels of precarious work, workplace stress and widening pay gaps are just some of the current warning signals that suggest we have some tough choices ahead to create broad-based prosperity and sustainable work models for the future.

But according to Kevin Empey it is a journey for which we need to prepare ourselves and others, and to take with purpose, so that we establish a route for future generations that is characterised by good work and opportunity, where people can thrive and not just survive at work. A future where organisations build the capacity to adapt and change with confidence and skill over time, and don’t just exist to deliver on short-term priorities.
