The world is changing, and with it, our work, workforces and workplaces. This is the thesis that brought Epstein Becker Green and Deloitte Legal together to form an alliance that provides clients comprehensive and global employment law and workforce management services.

Growing market complexities, from legislative changes and compliance, to the technological and societal forces which are transforming the future of work, are putting tremendous pressure on clients. In this continuously evolving environment, organizations increasingly require an advisor who can address the combined business and legal issues related to its workforce.

The Changing Landscape

From high-profile workplace issues such as pay equity to skyrocketing health care costs, and the impact of digital transformation in the workplace, an organization’s approach to workforce management can have a significant impact on its culture, strategy, and, ultimately, market position and value.

Employees, customers and investors alike are paying closer attention to how organizations navigate these complex issues and, as a result, it has become more paramount than ever that organizations take a proactive and comprehensive approach to managing them.

According to Deloitte Global’s 2019 Human Capital Trends survey, 64 percent of respondents saw growth ahead in robotics, 80 percent predicted growth in cognitive technologies, and 81 percent predicted growth in AI. Addressing the legal risks and organizational implications as these technologies disrupt the workforce is more important than ever.
