Workforce Management & Circular Economy Transitions: A Systematic Approach
In our quest towards circularity, transition turbulence cannot be avoided. The closure of the coal mines within the Ruhr area in Germany is one example where the final closure date was a compromise due to the fatal consequences of their current workforce. This leaves a bitter aftertaste and doesn't have to be this way.
Imagine the ability to come up with a prognosis well in advance to prepare individuals for the new types of employment circularity will bring?
This will be the subject of this program, where we perform a deeper dive into the possible ramifications tied to changes generated by the transition to a circular supply chain. Andrea Bassi, Founder and CEO, KnowlEdge Srl and Senior Associate at IISD, will present a model and simulate scenarios to show what effect circular economy strategies can cause for employment. This type of exploratory scenario is an invaluable asset for us in our circularity pursuits.
