Human Resources Executives Special Interest Group Meeting 

Reimagining HR - The Future of Your Enterprise Demands a New Future of HR 
February 27, 2020 09:00 AM - 03:00 PM 
Join your fellow HR executives to discover the future of HR and how organizations might navigate their path to driving better business outcomes. 

Disruptive forces are sharply changing how we live and work, creating an imperative for enterprises to rapidly adapt. These disruptions are creating three futures: The Future of the Enterprise, The Future of the Workforce and the Future of How Work Gets Done. These futures serve as opportunities for HR to take the lead, helping enterprises to reimagine the future—today. So, the question we must ask, and answer is, how must your HR organization evolve so HR can take the lead in driving better and more sustained business performance. Of course, change is messy and there is rarely, if ever, a straight line to follow from the present to the future.

The UWEBC is pleased to have Kraig Eaton, a leader in Deloitte’s HR Transformation practice, join us on February 27 to share his views on the Future of HR. Kraig's presentation will walk us through the disruptive forces impacting the world of work and the things that HR must do differently in order to lead the enterprise forward.

Participants will learn about the following:

  • What is Exponential HR ?
  • What does it mean to have a Human-Centric Workforce Experience?
  • What kind of Superjobs of Exponential HR are emerging and why?
  • What are the top 10 capabilities needed by HR professionals in the future?

This is meant to be a very interactive session for our HR executives and will help us all start the year on the right note!

You Spoke -- We Listened! Many of our HR executive participants in the last year have mentioned how very valuable it is for them to sit down with each other for more in-depth discussions about the issues they are most interested in discussing at any given time. With that in mind, we will spend the afternoon in breakout discussions of your choosing!

Participate in Customizing the Agenda: You’ll have the opportunity to play an active part in shaping the agenda for the afternoon – and to maximize its relevance for you – by suggesting and selecting topics for break-out discussions. Once the agenda is complete, you choose the discussions you want to join. This will be a highly interactive session so come prepared to share your questions, challenges and insights!
