    About the Presentation
    One of the most intriguing outcomes of the current coronavirus crisis is a visible increase in so-called "fluid work" around the world. Some experts argue that work within an organization becomes more fluid, as jobs are deconstructed and reinvented, permanent employees are offered inside gigs, and work is highly automated. In addition to that, organizational work boundaries become more fluid as well, since there are other types of workers – fluid workers representing an outside workforce – that some organizations are now using more than ever before. In his talk "The Rise of Fluid Work: Latest Developments and Implications for Talent Management" Dr. Vlad Vaiman will focus on fluid workers, discuss the latest rapid developments in this area on a global scale, present practitioners' view on the phenomenon, offer theoretical and managerial implications, and introduce a few areas for research in both global and country-level talent management related to the topic.
