The workforce of the future will run on data, ML, and empathetic leaders

Post-pandemic, savvy companies are applying the lessons they learned from it—especially vis-à-vis their workforce. In this podcast, David Linthicum talks with Workday’s Greg Pryor about how companies can use data and machine learning technology to improve their employees' experience. They also discuss the future of work. The upshot? Employees will need to ramp up their social agility and build strong connections, and leaders will need to develop empathy as a primary management skill.

One of the new personal and organizational capabilities that we need to build is this topic of social agility, our ability to produce productive connections more quickly in a more agile world.

Greg Pryor is senior vice president, people and performance evangelist at Workday. He is responsible for applying Workday’s technology to optimize the company’s internal talent management programs, including leadership and manager effectiveness, learning management, career engagement, and performance enablement.
