The technology is ready, but are we?

Many HR organizations are framing questions, challenges, and opportunities based on outdated organizational models, instead of looking at future pardigms and new ways of doing business.

At our recent The Future of Work: The Strategic HR Joint Council Meeting250 C-suite and senior level executives discussed the most critical challenges they soon expect to face as they confront the evolutionary impact of digital transformation on business and how work gets done – and, in response, the need for a disruptive mindset in HR.

Join our expert panel of researchers and company leaders to learn more about:

  • HR’s need for a comprehensive digital strategy of its own – one aligned with the organization’s business strategy to achieve both the speed and scale that digital transformation requires;
  • The growing importance of adopting Agile Methodology and Design Thinking as essential elements of the HR function of the future; and
  • Why HR systems need to evolve to support collaboration and place value on work done in teams.

Who Should Attend: Practitioners and business professionals involved in preparing their organizations and workforces to thrive in a digital future.
