In the runup to the ILO's 100th anniversary in 2019, the ILO asked the Nordic countries to contribute to the debate about how the future of work can be shaped. the Stockholm conference gathered more than 120 participants, and was number three out of four annual Nordic conferences.
The debate was divided into four main themes:
1) How will the technological developments affect the Labour market?
2) How are the Nordic countries preparing for a more digitised and automated labour market?
3) How are companies and industries affected by the technological development?
4) How to deal with the need for skills?
The programme included perspectives from all of the Nordic countries, from multinational organisations such as the OECD and the ILO, international companies such as McKinsey and Google, Nordic labour market authorities, social partners and companies undergoing changes.
