Future of Jobs in India Summit 2016 - FactorDaily

About the event

FactorDaily in association with CareerNet presents, The Future of Jobs in India Summit: Make sense of technology disrupting the workplace.

The summit will bring together leaders and disruptors under one roof to debate ideas and share learnings on what the workplace of the future is going to be like. Technology is either disrupting or transforming jobs and work in India, just like it is in the rest of the world. But, as with everything, there is a unique India cut to this transition. After all, India is home to the world’s youngest people among large nations — our median age is around 27, two out of three Indians are 35 or younger, and a million Indians celebrate their 18th birthday every month, ready to join the workforce. .

In this context, the takeover, if you will, of existing jobs in software services, back-office, and low-end manufacturing by self-learning software, robots or other forms of automation will have huge implications for the economy and the society. That will just be the beginning as automation spreads to other sectors of the economy. On the other hand, there is a trend of jobs being created thanks to technology disruptions in banking and financial services, retail, transportation, and services in general — jobs that never existed before.

The Future of Jobs in India Summit aims to make sense of this change in the workplace by bringing together the finest minds shaping the future. .
