The landscape of work is changing rapidly, and staying ahead means understanding the professional profiles of the future. Ivan Leider, L+R's director of engineering and manager of the Barcelona office, recently participated in a thought-provoking round table discussion on this very topic. The event, moderated by Benja Orts, was part of the #HACK4TALENT presentation day—a gathering dedicated to learning, inspiration, and collaboration among leaders in the innovation sector.

During the round table, Ivan shared valuable insights into the operational ethos of L+R, emphasizing the importance of T-shaped profiles within the company. These are individuals who possess a broad range of skills (the horizontal stroke of the 'T') along with deep expertise in a specific area (the vertical stroke). This approach not only fosters versatility and adaptability but also encourages a culture of continuous learning and development.

Looking to the future, Ivan highlighted the trends that L+R is not just observing but actively engaging with. The rise of remote work, augmented by technologies like AR and VR, is reshaping the workplace, allowing for a more immersive and flexible work environment. Continuous education, another key trend, is vital in an era where the half-life of skills is rapidly shrinking.

For clients, Ivan underscored the significance of employee experience enhancement—a service that L+R excels in. By prioritizing the well-being and development of employees, organizations can not only improve productivity but also attract and retain top talent.

The #HACK4TALENT event was a microcosm of the values that L+R stands for, with workshops on AI and Emotional Intelligence and opportunities for networking with sector leaders. The event sets the stage for the upcoming Hackathon on December 15th and 16th, which promises to bridge the gap between corporates and the profiles of the future. It's clear that the insights shared by Ivan and others at the round table will resonate with those looking to stay at the forefront of their fields. L+R continues to be at the cutting edge, preparing for a future where strategy, technology, and human-centric design converge to create unparalleled experiences for clients and their customers.
