The world of work has changed more this year than any of us could have ever imagined back in January. However in the all the discussion around working from home the future of flexible working we are often not taking into account the radical changes that technology and Artificial Intelligence will bring to jobs and the workplace over the next few years.

The implications for talent acquisition and talent management are enormous as companies will need to continuously find and develop new skills as well as managing the evolving relationship between humans and ever more intelligent machines.
