Episode 2: Future of Work Predictions & The Gig Economy
In this episode, we discuss social protection for gig workers, the importance of trust-as-a-service in building successful gig platforms and predictions for the future workforce. Speakers included: 1. Akshay Shah- Executive Director, Silafrica. 2. Joan Kamau- Head of Sales, African Management Institute. 3. Paul Kasimu- Chief Human Resources Officer, Safaricom 4. Cezanne Maherali- Head of Policy, Uber East Africa The conversation was moderated by Doris Muigei who is the Country Director at Shortlist. Soundbites: "Working and learning will blend completely. I don’t think it will be sequential, where you first learn then you work then you go back to learn. Who takes the responsibility to provide that learning will most likely shift from educational institutions to workplaces. Because they are the only ones who can provide Just-In-Time learning whereas education systems will typically tend to lag a little bit behind." “The problem is not so much about finding that talent. It’s about trusting the talent. An app or a sharing platform isn’t really able to tell us who you can trust." "There should be more platforms developing trust-as-a-service such as UTU trust that have a database of gig workers who can be trusted with the work given."

Episode 1: Future of Work- Talent Development
In this episode, we hear from Paul Kasimu, Chief Human Resource Officer at Safaricom and Joan Kamau, Head of Sales at African Management Institute where they talked about talent development in light of the Future of Work. Soundbites: "Digital transformation is not about technology, it is about people. And what we’re missing for starters, is that even the way we view work, work is still seen as a place, not a space. "Out of the 73 universities we have, only 5 have fully functioning career offices." "The day we lost it was when we inverted the pyramid of how we develop our talent so every parent wanted each child to become a graduate. So it was more of supply led than demand-led and nobody asked what we need as an economy."
