Opening Keynote: What’s next for HR to create value in the ever changing business context?
We all recognize and experience the changing business context with technology (openAI), social, political, economic, climate, and lifestyle trends. As a result of these trends, people and organization issues are top of mind for business executives, boards, customers, investors, and regulators. These trends will require new assumptions about the future of work today and HR’s evolving role to respond to these assumptions. This keynote will highlight four emerging assumptions: connecting the inside to the outside (outside/in), harnessing uncertainty, personalizing work, and navigating paradox.
