On Oct. 20, a group of HR professionals gathered to discuss the future of work and the significant implications for HR with David Creelman, co-author of Lead The Work, and co-authors John Boudreau, a professor at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, and Ravin Jesuthasan, global talent practice leader at Towers Watson in Chicago.

Future leaders need to “lead the work” versus leading employees, according to Creelman, and HR needs to focus on a broader “human capital community” that may include free agents, contractors and employees.
