Content from our partner McKinsey & Company

How can employers match the right talent to jobs
and improve workforce engagement, retention, and attraction in the age of generative AI? In a recent McKinsey Quarterly article, McKinsey’s Aaron De Smet, Sandra Durth, Bryan Hancock, and coauthors suggest ways that organizations can craft jobs that not only enhance productivity through gen AI but also humanize work by freeing employees up from routine tasks to do more creative, collaborative, and innovative thinking.

LIVE STREAMING AND ON-DEMAND VIDEOS All festival sessions are live-streamed, with the on-demand video placed online immediately after the end of each session. The only sessions which are not live-streamed are the one-to-one clinics (on the topics of both safety and management&culture), the early morning film walks and sessions where at least one of the speakers has specifically requested no live streaming. Live streaming and on-demand videos will be embedded at the top of each session page in the festival programme and at the bottom of each speaker profile on the festival speakers page. You can also follow all sessions on the festival YouTube channel.

FREE WI-FI Free Wi-Fi will be provided to all festival attendees in all festival venues, with Wi-Fi name journalismfestival and Wi-Fi password journalismfestival.

SIMULTANEOUS TRANSLATION An AI-generated real-time translation service will be provided for all sessions in all venues. All you need is your mobile phone and your earphones. The translation options are from English to Italian, and from Italian to English. Details on how to use the translation service will be provided in the festival brochure.

We look forward to welcoming the festival community back to Perugia.
