Session hosted by Helen Rosethorn, Partner, Prophet

The world of work is changing. Shifting workforce demographics and technological advances are revolutionising the worker-employer relationship.

Insights in this session include:

  • How to transform company culture: internationally, locally, and within specific functions.
  • What it takes to meet employee expectations during the age of experiential careers and global mobility.
  • How to win Boardroom buy-in to create a culture-first organisation that drives performance, fits your strategy and boosts your employer brand.

Session Two: How can HR put people first in the machine age?

Session hosted by Richard Doherty, Senior Director Product Marketing EMEA, Workday

Robotics, automation, augmented reality and AI – business change is increasingly driven by technology. In this digital age, HR has a vital role to play in ensuring that organisations are powered by people that are ready, willing and able to embrace each new iteration of work.

Insights in this session include:

  • In what areas technology can make a difference for your people and how to help them fully embrace the futuristic workplace.
  • How to implement software and automation which improves recruitment without risking the candidate experience.
  • What ‘big data’ can do for the people function; where it can help HR to think critically; and in which way it can improve creatively in order to solve problems and deliver RoI.
  • How apps and ‘consumerisation’ can focus the people function on the employee experience.

Session Three: How can HR lead during change and transformation?

Session hosted by Jeanne Townend, Chief Executive UK & Ireland, Lee Hecht Harrison

The contemporary workplace is in flux with new structures and patterns of working, and new legislation and skillsets, disrupting the traditional practises. Yet, in this time of change, people are still the most important part of every organisation - with HR at the head of them. With individuals at the heart of most current work, HR will have to be proactive in ensuring new patterns of working are influenced by their voice for the benefit of both employees and the bottom line.

Insights in this session include:

  • Why mentoring and communication are crucial for ensuring that everyone can navigate the changing landscape of work.
  • How to roadmap and secure buy-in for new structures and hierarchies.
  • What the HR function has to do to tailor the employee experience for increasingly diverse expectations.
  • How to tell organisational stories with ‘big data’ and analytics in order to model pathways to success.

Session Four: How will you build a future-proof talent pipeline?

Session hosted by Bev White, Chief Executive Officer, GI Group

Talent sourcing is changing too. Recruitment and resourcing functions must engage with a society which sees itself as more meritocratic – one that increasingly ignores gender, identity and ethnicity as precluding factors to hiring and is aware of compliance and the employer brand.

Insights in this session include:

  • How to build a diverse talent pipeline considering language, modelling and quotas
  • Why a well-built pipeline benefits both your brand and your bottom line.
  • Choosing between different talent and training pathways, such as degree qualifications, and understanding different options now available
  • How to understand different ways of assessing and testing talent and to know which one is right for you
