Getting the Most From Your HR Information Technology Conference, June 2014


June 3-4, 2014

with Gerry Ledford and Alec Levenson (Senior Research Scientists, CEO)

Companies are making a tremendous investment in new HR information technology (HRIT), but how do they implement the technology in ways that gain a real return on investment? What are the challenges that adopters face and how do they overcome them? We will explore these issues in an upcoming CEO conference that Exelon Corporation has generously agreed to host.

When: We will begin at 8 am on June 3 and finish at 4 pm on June 4.

Where: Exelon corporate headquarters in the Chase Tower, 10 South Dearborn, 48th floor, downtown Chicago. (Note: The views are great.)

Who Should Attend: HR technology leaders, HRIT project team members, IT managers involved in HRIT implementation

Keynote Presentation: Steve Boese, one of the most distinguished commentators in the field, will review the state of HR technology and discuss where it is headed. He is the Co-Chair of the annual HR Technology Conference, the world's largest gathering of the global HR Technology community, a writer/editor for Human Resource Executive magazine, and a tireless blogger. See his HR technology blog at

Conference Format: The conference will be highly interactive. Most of the time will be devoted to discussions with your peers on topics that matter to you. Bring your questions and problems to learn how other companies have addressed these issues. The discussions with be organized and facilitated by CEO Senior Research Scientists Gerry Ledford and Alec Levenson, the key CEO researchers for our multi-company research program on HRIT.

There will be four segments to the program, each corresponding to a different facet of HR technology. Each segment will begin with one or two brief presentations (approximately 15-20 minutes) from companies that are actively implementing new technology in that segment, followed by discussions with the presenters. The remainder of the time will be devoted to facilitated discussions.
