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.

How Should We Collaborate in a Hybrid World?

CHRO Circle Exclusive Roundtable: Redefining Culture in a Fragmented World

Ceree Eberly, Chief People Officer, Coca-Cola (Formerly)

Daniel Dirks, Managing Vice President, Gartner

Anna Krasniewska, Group Vice President, Gartner

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.

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.

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?

Lucy Cooke, zoologist and best-selling author of Bitch: A revolutionary Guide to Sex, Evolution and the Female Animal, dispels Victorian sexist stereotypes and tells the truth about what it really means to be female with wild tales from the animal queendom. Female animals are much more than just carers or baby-makers. Discover how females, not males, are the wise, empathetic leaders of some of the smartest animal societies (elephants and orcas), how they dominate males (bonobos and lemurs) and are naturally competitive (meerkats), aggressive (hyenas) and promiscuous (pretty much all animals). Find out how females were the original sex and how some societies have dispensed with males altogether and taken over the world as a self-cloning sisterhood (lizards and insects and fish). Lucy’s revelations about will make you think differently about our perceptions and expectations of all female animals, including women.
