Job sharing in a digital world

Rethinking Work in the Collaborative Economy

The Power of Collective Intelligence and Interconnectivity

The digital leap observed over the past decade leads us to reinventing everything we do and know, work included! Job sharing was introduced 40 years ago and is now starting to regain a new momentum. People are more inclined to share their jobs, creating duos or even trios to have positions that making more of impact in a productive-resourceful way. All this is made possible thanks collaboration, digital interconnectivity and the collective intelligence.

The 2017 colloquium focuses on the opportunities and challenges presented from job&top Sharing, Work Smart Initiative as well as Slash Careers. Our 35 specially selected speakers and panellists will shed light on the implementation of alternative work models in an open discussion forum.

      NEWS REVIEW

      what the media said about our first edition

      Die Teilzeitarbeit gilt als Wundermittel, um Frauen und auch ältere Arbeitskräfte vermehrt in den Arbeitsmarkt zu integrieren. Doch für Arbeitnehmer zahlt sie sich nicht immer aus.
      NZZNeue Zürcher Zeitung
      As well as greater flexibility, the benefits of splitting a post include sharing knowledge, particularly between experienced and younger staff, and better management of absences due to illness and holidays.
      SWISwissinfo.ch
      Plus de 220 personnes étaient au rendez-vous. Sans doute le premier indicateur que ce sujet va prendre de l’ampleur à l’avenir. Car le jobsharing répond à une demande croissante pour des postes à responsabilité à temps partiel.
