In partnership with McKinsey & Company, The Conference Board has just completed a comprehensive research report which articulates the current state of human capital, the major challenges as expressed by human capital executives around the world, and how to address these challenges. The State of Human Capital Report reflects the survey responses and focus group comments of more than seven hundred human capital practitioners around the world. It offers both short- and long-term strategies that address the top four opportunities identified by human capital executives: anticipating the workplace of the future, securing the pipeline of skilled workers, capitalizing on employee engagement, and ensuring an agile workforce.
Join Rebecca L. Ray, Ph.D., Senior Vice President of Human Capital, The Conference Board, as she moderates a panel discussion with the report’s researchers who will focus on the key findings from The State of Human Capital report. Joining Rebecca will be Amy Abel, Ph.D., Director of Human Capital Research, The Conference Board; Emily Lawson, Partner in the London Office, McKinsey & Company and Leader of McKinsey’s global Human Capital practice; and Bryan Hancock, Partner in the Atlanta office, McKinsey & Company.
This session will offer new insights for Human Capital professionals interested in knowing how to leverage these research findings to drive better business performance.
