New Perspectives: Exploring the Collision Point Between Technology and the Workforce

Rapid change over the past 18 months has dismantled traditional attitudes towards ways of working, while radically accelerating our reliance on technology. Given that HR professionals reside at the collision point of these two forces, the long-term, strategic significance of the role is becoming increasingly pronounced.

In modern workplaces, employees expect the same technological innovations and experiences that they leverage in their personal lives. It is essential that organisations transform and enable their HR function by leveraging intelligent workforce technology that keeps up with employee expectations, and provides managers and business leaders visibility for operational and strategic decisions.

Fundamental questions our conversation will address include:

• How is wellbeing integrated into our jobs and how do people technologies support this?
• What is the criticality of succession planning in keeping employees engaged and improving employee retention rates?
• What is the role of reward and recognition in performance management?
• What impact does a new hire’s onboarding experience have on their short-term and long-term success in a new role or new organisation?
• How does feedback from exit interviews shape plans for the future?
• How important is it to have a change management strategy when it comes to introducing new processes to employees? What are the possible challenges that can arise if there is no strategy for managing change?
