State of Organizations with Dr. Patrick Simon, McKinsey & Company
Show Notes

Today's guest is Patrick Simon, Senior Partner at McKinsey, the global management consulting firm.

Listen as Patrick shares his experiences of working with CEOs and how today's business leaders can tackle the big challenges head-on.

Earlier in 2023, McKinsey released a report called State of Organizations and we discuss some of the findings as part of HRchat episode 370.

Questions for Patrick include:

  • McKinsey’s State of Organizations report breaks down ten shifts organizations are facing today and includes participation from business leaders around the world. Please briefly mention some of those 10 shifts and explain what motivated you and your team to conduct this particular research.
  • The report says only half of survey respondents feel their organization is well prepared to anticipate and react to external disruption. Why do you think that's the case? Does that surprise you? 
  • How can companies be more prepared to react to future shocks and disruptions?
  • What are your predictions for the role of AI in the workplace over the next few years? To what extent would you guess will AI be augmenting and replacing traditional roles and what are some of the new roles that are being created to keep ahead of the huge tech-enabled changes hitting organizations today?
  • There’s been a steady increase in companies enforcing stronger mandates to bring workers back to the office. Given your findings from this study, how do you believe this shift will play out over the short term and what happens when the job market swings back to candidates?
