Purpose, Potential, Productivity: Building a Sustainable Workforce

What does it take to develop a sustainable workforce now and for the future? The pandemic and economic disruption have brought to the forefront a new set of workforce challenges that limit growth, hamper productivity, and get in the way of business model transformation. 

Join us in NYC for the People 2030 Conference to address these challenges through new solutions that build workforce and organizational capability aligned to strategic needs.   

Among the top challenges and solutions, this conference will explore:

  • Purpose: Business model disruption and the need to redefine the purpose of the organization through engaged stakeholders
  • Potential: Investment in and development of human potential and the new skills, capabilities, and scaling required to win in business
  • Productivity: Managing the great “reset” of workforce retention, recruitment, the hybrid workforce, and measurement of workforce contribution

Who Should Attend: CEOs, CHRO’s, Chief Learning Officers, People Analytics, HR Technology, Transformation, Workforce Analytics, Workforce Planning, Sustainability, Comp committees, Talent Management and Talent Acquisition.
