The Future of Workers – implementing learning and development solutions

Simon Tindall presenting

The Future of Workers – implementing learning and development solutions is the focus of a recent presentation by The Open University, delivered by Head of Skills and Innovation, Simon Tindall, and the Business School's Senior Lecturer in Management, Dr Jamie Woodcock.

The OU had a virtual stand at the CIPD’s Festival of Work, a two-day event looking at what is happening in the L&D and HR space, which took place virtually this year. On the webinar, Simon and Jamie discussed the benefits and challenges of the gig economy, the ‘new normal’ and the future of work.

Jamie says a mass experiment is currently underway, in terms of people working from home who would normally work from an office. He thinks it is really important that organisations think about how to build a future of work that is equitable for all, for people who work in the gig economy and in more traditional work environments.
