Future-proof digitization with a human centered strategy

Attractive industry - Future-proof digitalisation with a human focus

Does your company have a challenge in skill supply?

Do you want to attract the right people to create innovation and productivity?

Then this is the two-day course for you.

Digitization with a human focus highlights research and industry examples where new technology is combined with humanities. An attractive industrial workplace is created by shaping a culture that promotes health and creativity as well as gender equality and diversity. Today, there are major challenges linked to digitization and sustainability. One of these challenges is skills development. There is a lack of knowledge in new technologies such as AI and machine learning, and at the same time, few are applying to industrial careers. For many, this is already a problem and it is difficult to both get and retain skills.

In this two-day course, you will get concrete tips and examples as well as a deep understanding of capturing and managing people for your company's future.

  • A work environment for commitment and productivity - Introduction and tools for creating an equal and inclusive work environment
  • Optimize Meetings - Method for analyzing existing meetings and which technical aids may be relevant
  • Get to know a robot - Quick course in running a UR robot and the use of machine learning.

To create an attractive workplace, you need the following: You understand your current situation, know where you want to reach, that you have the staff with you and that you can work to get there. Your home assignment helps you design a strategy for an attractive workplace by applying digitalization and equality in your company's reality.

The course is arranged as two-course sessions with approximately two weeks in between, April 1 and April 15. A home assignment is given between the course days.
