In 2019, connected cars are already a $20 billion industry, with seven billion of that total originating in the United States. Three-quarters of all new passenger cars sold globally in 2019 included connected services. And connected car functionality is the central building block of the self-driving car—an auto industry future many have already placed heavy bets on being what will drive growth.
A FUTURE THAT WORKS: WINNING WORKPLACES
The world of work is changing and our latest global research reveals 53% of employees and leaders believe the pace of this change and inability to adapt is the number one threat to business growth and success in the future. With only 43% of employees rating their current employer as future-ready, the great news is that both front-line employees and leaders are willing to take collective responsibility to ensure the necessary changes are made to succeed in the future.
Despite this, many leaders are missing the opportunity to harness their employees’ enthusiasm for change and collective action. Only one third (35%) of front-line employees have the opportunity to share ideas on how change is implemented. This is a missed opportunity for leaders to achieve truly sustainable change and a more agile and adaptable workforce.
Our Future That Works report shares findings from research with over 6,000 leaders and employees, including the latest thinking from experts within Engine, industry and academia. The report kicks off a series of blogs, podcasts and meet-ups about how to transform your workplace and workforce to be fit for the future. We held an exclusive breakfast event on the 10th September at the Hyatt Regency in Sydney. Our panelists, Elly Dalziel (Manager Workplace Experiences, Office and Industrial, Mirvac), Matt Henderson (Digital Transformation Business Lead, Greater Bank) & Gavin Heaton (Founder, Disruptor’s Handbook) discussed how they have created successful digital experiences for people by aligning strategy, technology and processes.
