With the big changes that happened on the labor market – ranging from the working models, all the way to how companies approach talent – many of the employers are facing new challenges which can be crucial to whether their companies will stay relevant on the market – it’s a case of adjusting to the “new normal”, or risk losing step with industry trends.

This was just some of the questions and potential scenarios that were part of the panel discussion titled ’Developing the Workplace of the Future which was held on 22.11.2022, at the Faculty of Philosophy in Skopje. The panel discussion was organized by the Faculty of Philosophy – Skopje, together with IT Labs as part of the Re:Imagine People Management sessions, which will contain experts and leaders in the HR industry. 

This panel discussion was opened by the dean of the Faculty of Philosophy, Prof. Ratko Duev, PhD, and it was the first in a series of sessions – and at it we had the following experts:
