  • Boston, MA-NH (1888PressRelease) July 10, 2021 - Miles Everson, the CEO of MBO Partners, will be conducting an event titled, “How A Global CEO Reinvents the Workforce” on July 16, 2021, Friday from 1:00pm to 2:30pm ET. This will happen at the President’s Room in the Harvard Club of Boston in Massachusetts.

    After spending a career of nearly 30 years at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), the largest professional services organization in the world, Everson left as the Global Advisory and Consulting CEO. Everson helped the firm become one of the world’s top employers, which now has over 280,000 personnel.

    Why did Everson step down from his role as the global head of the biggest of the Big Four consulting firms?

    It’s because of this reason: He would like to take part in “a total reinvention of the global workforce.”

    In a PwC report during the T20 summit meeting in May 2019, data showed that workforce transformation is closely linked to the productivity gains needed in both business and the public sector. Research stated that GDP (Gross Domestic Product) could be up by 14% as a result of AI (Artificial Intelligence) allowing organizations and individuals to work at “a more efficient, effective, and precise rate.”

    Additionally, PwC’s study showed that today’s corporate leaders are increasingly talking about “purpose” and their organization’s place in society. In fact, 56% of CEOs agree that they should focus on purpose to balance the right level of productivity with the need to build trust with society in the long run.

    Everson believes these things will impact the profitability and even the sustainability of firms for the next several decades―in Corporate America and around the world.

    Long before the pandemic, Everson saw a gross incompatibility between the modern approach to staffing and the global future of work. He said companies still focus too much on knowledge as an asset to be trapped versus capturing the importance of knowledge flows.

    This was similar to American engineer W. Edwards Deming and Austrian-American educator Peter Drucker’s philosophy on how to view “the firm,” in which they said organizations still treat employees as “us” and contractors and vendors “as them.” As the rate of change in the business landscape accelerates, companies find it harder to keep up with innovation. One reason for this difficulty is management's reluctance to build or embrace its “external workforce.”

    For instance: Few firms build a “virtual bench” of experts who can be called when needed. As neither the expert nor the business requires full-time employment, fractional arrangements have been created at firms that are preparing for the world of rapid innovation.

    This is why Everson believes there’s a need to reinvent the workforce that will impact the overall performance of various firms around the world.

    Join Miles Everson as he shares his personal stories from both his career as a management consultant expert and his new role as CEO of MBO Partners at the “How a Global CEO Reinvents the Workforce” event. His examples will show how organizations survive and thrive in a world where firms with antiquated business models and traditional workforce models will be buried by their competition.

    There will be no charge to attend this event. Seating at the venue is very limited and registration is required to save your seat. Those who are interested to attend may register here:
