To attain a high-level productivity within their role, employees must feel empowered and inspired by their surroundings. The Commission for Conciliation Mediation & Arbitration (CCMA) believes that the future of work is not just about artificial intelligence and automation or the impact of work on the workplace but also about everyone in the workplace.

The Honourable Minister of Labour, Ms Mildred Oliphant will deliver the Keynote address at the 2nd  Annual CCMA Shop Stewards and Union Officials Conference under the theme “The Future of Work” will focus on the necessity of developing a pipeline of globally aware and empathetic professionals. In an increasingly connected world where mutual understanding and harmony are more important than ever, successful leaders need to collaborate across organizational and cultural boundaries and to build consensus and commitment among groups with different perspectives and values. In short, understanding the world and being empathetic to different perspectives is a fundamental element of leadership.
