Workshop Objectives

More than half of the babies born in the west in the last eight years will have a life expectancy of over 100 years. The difference between living to 70, and living to 100, nearly doubles the amount of productive years in a career.

This fundamental shift in human existence will radically change how we live and work – rivalling the impact of globalisation and technology. The traditional three-stage model of education, employment, retirement will be swept away; replaced by a more complex multi-stage, multi-career life. This megatrend poses transformational questions to all organisations; because the answers will radically change the relationship with their employees:

  • How will people navigate careers which span over 60 years?
  • Knowledge and expertise are increasingly perishable – so what does this mean for learning interventions and talent management?
  • Which of the current norms will be consigned to history, which will become more prominent… the 5-day working week? Fixed employee contracts? The ‘work-life balance’? Office-based staff? Flexible working? Corporate universities?

Some ground-breaking research has emerged from a collaboration between London Business School’s Professor of Economics Andrew Scott and the school’s leading business thinker Professor Lynda Gratton. This workshop will provide a unique opportunity to get a sneak preview of its insights before they are published.

How you’ll benefit. This interactive day-long experience will challenge you to prepare for a seismic workplace paradigm-shift. It will then equip you with key insights to allow you to take action to future-proof your business.

What you’ll experience. This is a combination of cutting edge content, team and individual work and an experiential journey across London – a new type of learning pioneered by London Business School.

At LBS:
You will begin the day at the School hearing from Professor Andrew Scott. His presentation will be followed by facilitated group work to focus upon the concrete takeaways for your business.

In Central London:

After lunch participants will re-form into their morning discussion groups and embark upon a discovery journey across London. This is an innovative, live learning experience in which you'll visit a forward-looking companies that are thinking and working on this crucial topic.

The host companies are: global technology giant Google, the UK’s largest insurance broker AON, the UK’s most creative agency AMVBBDO, global law firm Linklaters and branding and design agency Wolff Olins.

During the 90 minute visit the groups will hear from the senior executives in that company responsible for people development around their point of view on the best policies for dealing with demographic change. We’ll use the approach to engaging with 20-something ‘millennial’ employees as a jumping off point - in particular how you use learning and development to engage, retain and support a demographic that will have many more career and functional changes than in the past. Participants will break into discussion groups with a couple of the organisation’s millennials (as proxy for the 100 year lifers) about career transitions, their view on their L&D needs, importance of keeping ‘options’ open and intangible assets, flexible sense of self.

There will follow a tour the host’s office environment, in particular looking at how home/work is blurred, how the environment facilitates informal learning, networks and different relationships: the ‘posse’, the regenerative relationships, new role models. Of course, this could be at the beginning of the visit too. (If appropriate)

In Kensington Roof Gardens:
At the end of the day, all groups will rendezvous with Andrew Scott to share what they learned and discuss how they intend to implement their learning. The day is bought to a conclusion with a sharing of action points from the day.
