How Should We Collaborate in a Hybrid World?

Alexia Cambon, Director, Research, Gartner

The rarefication of in-person interactions. The reimagining of office spaces. The unestablished etiquette of digital meetings. The confusing interplay of the virtual and home environments. Making room for the individual whilst respecting the need for collective cohesion. All of these characteristics of our new team experience raise one fundamentally simple but essential question for business leaders: what does good collaboration look like in this new world? In a world where fragmentation is the recurrent soundtrack, team rhythms become essential to producing attractive sound.

CHRO Circle Exclusive Roundtable: Redefining Culture in a Fragmented World

Conventional wisdom suggests that company culture changes from the top down, fitting employees into a larger, cohesive culture determined by leadership. However, in today’s more fragmented workforce, culture is more individualized, with microcultures formed around teams and affinity groups taking a more prominent role. What are the implications of an increasingly segmented culture? How can CHROs maintain the benefits of a cohesive cultural narrative with an approach that is sensitive to individual needs and interests? Join the CHRO Global Leadership Board to discuss these shifts in culture strategy and how they could benefit the workforce of the future.

HR’s Role in Driving Sustainability Outcomes

Kathryn Cleary, Sr Principal, Advisory, Gartner

Attend this session to understand and act on HR’s expanding role in engaging employees and leaders in both enterprise environmental and social sustainability initiatives. Strategies to meet enterprise net zero commitments include both top-down and bottom-up tactics.

Making tangible progress towards DEI goals continues to be a top priority for today’s organizations. Diverse employees are in high demand, forcing organizations to make difficult tradeoffs between long-term DEI objectives and immediate staffing crises.

Join the CHRO Global Leadership Board to develop strategies for making meaningful progress on DEI goals and initiatives in an environment of major disruption.

Getting Ahead of New Waves of Attrition: Understanding the Quiet Majority

Rachael Marshall, Director, Advisory, Gartner

Recent turnover figures have distracted from the fact that turnover rates have been steadily rising for many years. In this session, we will look at a “silent majority” of workers, who, while not leaving now, still feel limited commitment to the organization and are ready to leave if opportunities come to them – particularly due to the now lower “switching” costs that hybrid work allows.

CHRO Circle Exclusive Roundtable: Addressing Political and Social Issues with a Fragmented Workforce

Employees are carefully watching their organizations’ responses to political and social issues more than ever.

Join the CHRO Global Leadership Board to discuss the following questions: How is the role of the CHRO in shaping their organizations’ ESG strategies changing? How should we approach making statements on these issues when there is risk of alienating employees with conflicting views?

High turnover, the war for talent, and hybrid work environments require complex strategic workforce planning.

Career Pathing for a Fragmented Work Landscape

Vitorio Bretas, Director, Advisory, Gartner

Career opportunities are a key attraction and retention driver, but in hybrid work settings, employees neither trust opportunities will be fair, nor do they have as much visibility of potential internal moves.

The Hybrid Manager's Performance Management Handbook

Brent Cassell, VP, Advisory, Gartner

Managing employee performance was difficult when managers were co-located with their teams and it has only become more so in the past two years.

In this session, we'll explore a range of new techniques -- from encouraging feedback seeking behaviors to creating more psychologically safe team climates -- to give managers the tools they need to succeed.

Ask the Expert: How Should I Redesign My Performance Management Processes to Mitigate Biases?

Brent Cassell, VP, Advisory, Gartner

64% of leaders believe that in-office employees are higher performers, but Gartner research indicates that remote employees are 1.7x more likely to be high performers than their onsite peers. While many organizations seek to close this gap by boosting awareness, perhaps through unconscious bias training, this has no significant impact on bias in performance management. Join this highly interactive session where you can ask a Gartner expert your most pressing questions for redesigning performance management processes (from goal setting to calibration) to address the pervasive risk of unchecked biases.

How to Sustain Team Cohesion in a High Turnover Environment

Join to learn how to maximize team cohesion in a world where teams are increasingly important and yet continually in flux.

Thursday, 15 September, 2022 / 04:00 PM - 04:45 PM BST

Roundtable: Succession Planning in a Hybrid World: Increased Connections or Opportunities for Bias?

Russ McCall, Sr Principal, Advisory, Gartner

A hybrid work environment presents both new challenges and new opportunities for succession planning and management processes. While a digital-first environment may enable increased connectivity between HR and potential successors across the organization, this business environment can also enable biases such as proximity bias, which favor the leaders who are more readily “visible”, whether that’s in the office or on-camera. This could adversely affect women leaders, who are more likely to take advantage of flexible work options due to caretaking and other responsibilities that disproportionately fall on women. What other challenges and opportunities will a hybrid environment present for succession management and planning?

Lee-Anne Vallée, Sr Director, Advisory, Gartner

Organizations have always had a big ask of talent and succession planning to identify, develop and retain diverse high potential talent, for now and for the future, to build and deliver leadership bench strength and do this all in a sustainable way.

How HR Leaders Can Optimize Technology Initiatives for Employee Experience

John Kostoulas, VP Analyst, Gartner

Employee Experience (EX) has become a critical business outcome for technology investments, but technology options and decisions are not "one-size-fits-all".

In this session, we will present Gartner's EX-Ready model that can amplify these activities.

Friday, 16 September, 2022 / 03:30 PM - 04:00 PM BST
