WORKSHOP

ROOM 1

Continuous? Strategic? What’s the Best Way to Listen to Employees?
  • There are lots of HR “experts” that extol the “right” way to survey employees and use those insights. But what makes sense for your organization?
  • When it comes to the best survey design for your organization, ignore the hype. The census survey is not dead, the best surveys have more than 10 questions, and the organization doesn’t need to collect data all the time
  • Surveys should evaluate engagement, to be sure, but more than that surveys should evaluate the effectiveness of the work environment and feed HR analytics, enabling good data-based decisions about people
  • This presentation will separate fact from fiction when it comes to the best way to listen to employees and provide attendees a roadmap for determining what approaches make most sense today and in the future

ROOM 2

Building an Agile Workforce
  • Learn how organizations are making themselves more agile
  • Every HR leader is currently faced with the challenge of making their workforce more agile. Automation, shorter business cycles and technology shifts mean that organizational goals, structures and job requirements change rapidly
  • Delivering on this challenge requires different thinking, different processes and the smart use of technology
  • Through case examples this session will demonstrate how organizations are building agile workforces through:
    • Focusing on the right changes
    • Building the right processes
    • Deploying smart technologies

ROOM 3

How to Confidently Embrace HR Technology in the Digital Era
  • Technology is disrupting and transforming not just the workplace, but the actual lifespans of corporations
  • There is no easy defense to this phenomenon. For CHROs, this means introducing digital tools and systems that help them transform their organization and how they deal with talent
  • But how to be a digital native and fearless in the face of technology?
  • When you look at the biggest winners of the digital transformation era, they all have one thing in common: they’ve embraced a single platform solution
  • To confidently transform HR, organizations need a platform that fits the scope and reach of their business boundaries, but also allows for evolution as companies define their competitive edge and unlock their potential to attract, retain and motivate talent
