The Future of Work: How will higher education be impacted?

Unless you’ve turned off all your devices, you know that demographic shifts, increased competition and cost pressures are affecting employers in all industries. What does this mean for you, as HR professionals, in higher education?

Mercer’s recently conducted 3 separate global research studies –

Future of Work, Talent Trends and Thriving in an Age of Disruption – which provide interesting and compelling data and insights into how work and workplaces will change:

What are the biggest disrupters on the horizon?

 What are executives planning for the next few years?

 What skills will be most in demand?

 What do employees want from their workplace and employer?

Colleges and universities have traditionally been curious about what their peers and aspirants are doing, but institutions can no longer ignore or dismiss what is happening in the broader work environment. They must prepare for theses seismic shifts or risk becoming a less-than-desirable employer.

This session will combine presentation of research results, coupled with focused discussions in breakout sessions. We will also share findings from a pulse survey of almost 100 institutions to provide insights into how higher education compares to general industry on some key topics.

Part 1 - Presentation:

Mercer’s cross industry research findings from three global research studies: Future of Work, Talent Trends, and Thriving in an Age of Disruption

Findings from a recent pulse survey of colleges and universities to understand how their priorities compare and contrast to general industry.

Part 2 - Breakout sessions: (sample topics for sessions)

Strategic total rewards – 61% of study respondents indicate that health is more important than wealth or career. How can institutions be design and implement strategic total rewards programs to appeal to a broad demographic of faculty and staff?

Career growth and development – Career growth is a top priority for millennials. Can institutions adapt best practices from other industries to build a compelling employee value proposition for shifting demographics?

Recruitment and retention – Mercer’s studies indicate a significant jump in interest in using contingent, contract or freelancers – the Gig is Big – but concerns continue to exist regarding the impact on career progression. How can institutions adapt to changing expectations of the workforce while respecting the academic culture and a cohesive work environment?
