Agenda

Empowering HR Through Technology

The conference will offer the following three tracks to answer the key questions in all parts of the HR cycle

Recruitment & Onboarding

Technology has been the prime disruptor of the recruitment industry. Instant access to information, growing connectivity, and a transient workforce have turned the tables on recruiters, giving candidates far more control. Employer branding has therefore become a vital part of attracting skill talents. This track will discuss how technology can be leveraged in the recruitment processes to attract the workforce of the future.

Retention & Employee Experience

The calculations are simple: the demand for the right profiles is greater than the supply. Therefore, more and more companies are looking at how to optimize the experience they offer their employees. As companies are digitalizing and become more technologically advanced the agility of their employees to learn and adjust to their changing environment has become essential. The ability to empower employees through technology is therefore a key component to utilizing the most essential resource of the business.

Strategic HR & Leadership

The CHRO is becoming an integral member of the strategic leadership team - this has certainly not always been the case. However, today’s businesses require far more from HR than ever before. People-first companies have been proved to drive significantly higher performance than those not focused on employees and culture. In order for companies to fulfil their potential, they need to invest in their people and their culture, and strategic HR leaders must lead the way.

As technology is advancing, the recruitment process has become more efficient, reliable and convenient. This panel will focus on the implications of having an increasingly digitized recruitment process where technology enables organizations to utilize advancements in the candidate and recruitment experience. The panel will discuss the pros and cons of using AI and Machine Learning to assess and select candidates.

Retention & Employee Experience

The majority of organizations are expecting to increase or significantly increase their use of AI, cognitive technologies, robotic process automation, and robotics over the next three years. As organizations adopt these technologies, they’re finding that virtually every job must change, and that the jobs of the future are more digital, more multidisciplinary, and more data- and information-driven. Paradoxically, to be able to take full advantage of technology, organizations must redesign jobs to focus on finding the human dimension of work. This will create new roles that combine parts of different traditional jobs into integrated roles that leverage the significant productivity and efficiency gains that can arise when people work with technology.

Leading a social enterprise is about recognizing that, while businesses must generate a profit and deliver a return to shareholders, they must do so while also improving the lot of workers, customers, and the communities in which we live. And in today’s world, with today’s societal challenges, fulfilling this aim requires reinvention on a broad scale.

Recruitment & Onboarding

For years, many considered contract, freelance, and gig employment to be “alternative work,” options supplementary to full-time jobs. Today, this segment of the workforce has grown and gone mainstream even as talent markets have tightened, leading organizations to look strategically at all types of work arrangements in their plans for growth. Best practices to access and deploy alternative workers are just now being invented. If the economy continues to grow, organizations must be more flexible in adapting to these new work arrangements, and plan to use them in a strategic way.
