John and Ravin will share their latest research, best-practice company experiences, and emerging future trends affecting the Future of HR. They will review cases and examples of what companies and CHRO’s are doing today to accelerate HR to meet the changing demands of business.

The 2017 session will focus on changes in the nature of work, workers and the work ecosystem, including deconstructing “jobs,” automation/AI/robotics, workforce planning in uncertain times, and the social and policy implications of shifting the focus from “good jobs” to “good work.”

  • Pete Ramstad from Capella University will discuss breaking down the boundaries between HR and other business functions and introduce new framework for thinking about partnerships.
