Building Extraordinary Organizations—Human + Digital Collaboration
We live in an age where technology is shaping the way people live and work. From automation and AI to team collaboration, leadership, and social media, digitalization is creating unique expectations from employees and unprecedented challenges for HR. Today's employees are adapting, learning, and growing alongside this massive technological shift, and increasingly, they expect their work experience to match their life experience.
The proliferation of new business models has placed an emphasis on technological pivots, while the implications of this sea change are impacting with leadership and human resource practices. Collaboration and teamwork will be the norm for organizations that want to thrive. Building effective teams—where collaboration, diversity, and agility are the drivers to excel—will lead organizations' business success.
To thrive, HR leaders must lead the strategic areas driving organizational success to develop holistic approaches that will optimize human and digital collaboration to transform people's lives inside and outside of work.
The HR People + Strategy Annual Conference: Building Extraordinary Organizations—Human + Digital Collaboration will discuss the vital role of HR in leading the convergence of people and technology to build extraordinary organizations and the key elements shaping employees' work expectations.
The workforce is changing rapidly. HR is under increasing pressure from business leaders to realign their talent strategies with evolving business objectives. Seventy-seven percent of HR managers agree that companies that don't evolve their hiring strategies are at a competitive disadvantage.
To adapt to the changing nature of work, HR leaders are innovating their talent acquisition strategies to include a more flexible workforce. Roughly half of HR teams are utilizing freelancers to increase organizational effectiveness and achieve bottom-line results. In doing so, they're taking on the broader role of business strategist. With better insight and visibility into total talent supply, HR is able to make more informed decisions about human capital investment.
For years, HR leaders have been told they need to earn their seat at the table. That is no longer the case. Today, HR leaders sit in the driver's seat with a more strategic place at the table for business decisions driving innovation and change across the organization. By strategically leveraging a flexible workforce to increase capacity and fill critical skills gaps, HR is powering businesses to expand and grow into new markets.
In this session, Upwork's SVP of HR and Talent Innovation Zoe Harte will discuss:
This shared vision has guided major modernization and innovation efforts across the 17 components of the IC. The three panelists will describe the success of this initiative and how new technologies have enabled the Agility, Innovation and Inclusion work that is now characteristic of America's intelligence workplace.
The last half of this session will be an interactive discussion with attendees sharing their own insights to build on the panelists' perspectives.
Companies across all industries are facing unprecedented change today. Many need to transform to remain relevant and viable. The key to success will lie in a company's ability to engage leaders to help drive organizational transformation. The challenge, however, is that this is much easier said than done. This session will provide practical insights on what really works when you need your leaders to step up in new and different ways.
