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.

CHRO Circle Exclusive Roundtable: Advancing DEI Priorities in the Face of Major Disruption

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. Hybrid work can limit employees’ visibility for new talent opportunities, and women and people of color are disproportionately affected. How are CHROs responding to these and other challenges to build a truly diverse and equitable workforce? Join the CHRO Global Leadership Board to develop strategies for making meaningful progress on DEI goals and initiatives in an environment of major disruption.
