The premier destination for HR leaders around the world


The Next Frontier: HR’s Role in Leading Digitalization


More than 80% of CEOs are focused on driving the digital transformation of their business, increasingly turning to their HR leaders to make this transformation. Historically HR was asked to attract, develop and retain the talent required to achieve this goal, but their remit has expanded. HR is now tasked with leading the organization through this transformation by fundamentally rethinking approaches to the workforce, work and the way the organization needs to operate to drive success.


  • 61% of CHROs feel they're not prepared for their organization's digital transformation
  • 73% of CHROs rate their organization at a below average level of digital advancement

Reimagine the Role of the CHRO
CHROs now must lead the enterprise and its people through the digital transformation, and have the courage to abandon age-old practices to adopt the new strategies and processes required to compete in fiercely competitive talent environments. Find out how you can exploit digitalization to hone the employee experience, improve employee performance, and attract and retain a digital workforce.



Reimagine Recruiting & Talent Acquisition
It is an employee’s market in a digital age, and traditional hiring practices were designed for an analog world. Rethink your candidate experience, and use digital technologies to create a competitive advantage for your organization when it comes to hiring. Your employment brand may be more important than your product or service brand.




Reimagine Learning & Development
70 percent of employees feel they don’t have the skills they need to be successful in their jobs today. L&D executives must identify the critical skills workforces will require in the future, motivate employees to learn those skills (or figure out how to acquire them externally), and prove that your learning environments are returning value.




Reimagine Total Rewards
One hallmark of the digital age is information transparency, and nowhere is this more the case than in compensation, benefits, rewards and recognition. The motivations of some workforces today are shifting and broadening beyond monetary compensation. Total rewards, compensation and benefits executives need to adapt to attract and retain top talent.




Reimagine Diversity & Inclusion
Despite years of effort, the rate of progress toward diversity has stalled, if not declined, in most organizations. We’ll help you rewrite the playbook, by targeting workforce behavior and help you identify and eliminate bias within processes to ensure equitable hiring, pay, reviews and assignment of promotable work.



Reimagine HR Tech & Analytics
What does the future of work hold in a digital-business environment? How do emerging technologies foster greater productivity and innovation? Find out how existing and emerging technologies will better employment brands, increase workforce productivity, reinvigorate and expand D&I programs, and attract the top talent your enterprise needs.
