HR and the Future of Work

March 24-25, 2020

2nd Edition Premiere Online Event
A new era of HR dawns violently. New cracks are forming in once-innovative strategies such as employee engagement, employer branding, worker education, and technology such as artificial intelligence and people analytics. Where once HR ruled with the “one-size-fits-all” mentality, younger employees are rebuking the idea. Ideas like development, flexible scheduling, freelance (gig) markets and remote work are the building blocks of their mission. This FREE online event will help HR professionals once again find their footing in these changing times while bringing together HR professionals who are successfully addressing the issues of diversity, personalization, and adapting to the future of work. Attendees will also be able to put their real questions to the speakers and get valuable, actionable feedback that can be used to plan your organization’s plan for the next 5, 10 and 20 years.
