Slack’s Stuart Templeton outlines the key to success for the workplace of the future.

What’s the most important thing when it comes to the future of work? According to Stuart Templeton, head of Slack UK, it is agility.

As systems change and repetitive work tasks are replaced by bots and Excel spreadsheets, Templeton posits that we need to keep up with the ever-changing workplace or we will lose out.

“According to IDC, 40pc of the Fortune 500 companies will be extinct in the next 10 years because they will have failed to build the innovation into their organisation. They will have failed to build the resilience and agility to move at the pace of changing market conditions,” he told the Inspirefest 2019 audience.
