BridgingTheGap Executive Forum

21 Aug 2019
3:00pm - 5:30pm PDT

Is your workplace future ready?

With the theme of being future ready, the BridgingTheGap Executive Forum, organized by Lovell Corporation, is an industry training and networking event best suited for business owners, HR and management professionals, innovation firms and local investors. Programming focuses on helping attendees bridge opportunity gaps in the workplace to reduce inequalities, adapt to digital transformation, and recruit and retain the next generation of talent.

The forum is part of a cross-country tour for a national research and development project to create BridgingTheGap’s Future-Ready Employer Index—a tool to analyze workplace gaps and opportunities for Canadian businesses to adapt and thrive in the future of work. Participants will be invited to complete a workplace assessment about their current workplace culture and challenges, and this feedback will help to inform the index.

BridgingTheGap Forums are curated events that empower future talent and businesses to thrive in the changing marketplace.

  • Learn the latest requirements and challenges of the digital workspace, and how digital transformation is changing Millennial and Generation Z employee mentality.
  • Explore the role of frontier technologies like AI, blockchain, VR/AR in the workplace and the challenges and opportunities for businesses that adopt them.
  • Gain new strategies to tap into the motivational drivers and high-impact retention factors of young employees to build a thriving team that lasts.
  • Put principles into practice with data-driven examples of how successful brands are adapting their recruitment, employee engagement and retention practices in response to digitalization.
