Presentation by Perry Timms at Textkernel's conference Intelligent Machines and the Future of Recruitment on 2 June 2016 in Amsterdam.
With a spotlight on AI; VR/AR; robotics, automation, machine learning and quantum computing, what does this mean for the world of work, jobs and human endeavour?
More so, what does it mean to the technophobia often present in HR? There’s a thought that HR doesn’t even really get the technology that’s being used now and is having a profound effect on where, when and how people are working. And no, self-service cloud-based HR systems doesn’t mean the profession is anywhere near to being tech savvy. That’s low level labour realignment and marginal process improvement.
My fear - as an HR professional aware of and experimenting with technology constantly - is that my profession is already WAY BEHIND the curve so how will HR practitioners cope with the latest array of digital disruption?
Join me in finding out how I believe we can upgrade HR’s thinking and doing for the digital age of work.

TEDx Speaker - The Future of Work
A new era
“I think we need an ideological revolution in business. The ideology for the last 100
years has been ‘controlism’, and the tangible form of that ideology was
bureaucracy. As we move from the industrial economy through the service economy
to the knowledge economy, and now the creative economy, the relative value of
control as a source of competitive advantage is going down.”
