11:55 AM The Employment Journey: Transforming Culture and Experience to Meet the On-Demand Needs of the Modern Workforce

The best companies in the world understand that the foundation to business success lies in their employee culture.  Developing and nurturing a culture where people are engaged and perform at their highest potential is no easy feat.  Creating an end to end experience that matches that culture from talent acquisition through the employee life-cycle is even more challenging.  Like software development, where the focus has shifted beyond functional utility to an engaging customer experience; employers have had to shift beyond functional processes that serve the needs of Talent Acquisition and HR professionals to creating engaging experiences for candidates and employees that meet the dynamic needs of our modern workforce.  Whether getting started as an early life-cycle company, transforming a mature company, or integrating multiple organizations through M&A, the experience will be among the most critical factors in driving success in acquiring and retaining talent.   

During this discussion we will review:
•Evaluating the end to end process through journey-mapping
•Identifying new methods to measure candidate and employee engagement and experience
•Designing sustainable new processes and transforming old ones
•Adjusting when changes occur 

Check out the incredible speaker line-up to see who will be joining Jorge.
