People First: The Crucial Integration of HR and Business Strategy with Jeanne Meister

HR has been propelled into a position of huge influence, not only making key strategical business decisions but protecting the health and safety of the workforce. When going to work means potentially putting yourself at risk, the role HR leaders play in minimizing the danger while keeping businesses running cannot be understated.

People are the crux of an organization and HR cannot be on the periphery of business strategy. This keynote will delve into the evolution of HR and assess the opportunities that lies ahead. How can HR utilize its influence and play a part in shaping the ‘new normal’ – a new normal that puts people first.

Masterclasses

Masterclasses bring the world-beating insights of the brightest and best in HR and business transformation right to you, in the form of in-depth dissections of the most pressing issues we face today, and how to meet them head-on.

Here’s a flavour of what to expect from our masterclasses:

DEI Strategy: Sparking Real Progress in Racial Equity

Presented by Ruchi Jalla, Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer, BAE Systems

We are in the midst of two global pandemics, one related to health and the other being connected to racial injustice – both of which have disproportionately impacted the Black community.

Many organizations are coming forward with statements and actions on diversity, equity and inclusion but are they truly reflective of significant and sustainable change?

This session will guide you on how to incorporate an employee-driven and company-supported approach to advancing racial equity. DEI cannot be a passing trend but must be alive and embedded into the business – and must be driven by both a moral and business case for change.

Learning in the Age of Social Distancing

Presented by Ben Eubanks, Principal Analyst, Lighthouse Research & Advisory

Data from Lighthouse Research & Advisory shows that 80% of employers believe their people will need reskilling in the coming years–is your business ready?

That upskilling and reskilling has often been seen as a classroom or instructor-led training experience, but in the age of social distancing, more companies are looking at ways to modernize their learning. The good news?

This is aligned with how we naturally learn as humans. In this session, author and HR analyst Ben Eubanks will share research and insights on the neuroscience of learning, informal learning as an employee development tool, and more.
