2018 Tracks

A: Employee Experience
The quality of the employee experience impacts performance, engagement, retention and even attraction of new talent. Give your employees the right tools, structure and practices to lead the way for choice and diversity. Enable, empower and support employees rather than simply provisioning and directing. This track examines how employee experience impacts behavior, performance, engagement, retention and attraction
of new talent.

B: Digital Workplace Applications
IT is facing growing demand to deliver unified contextual experiences across workspaces and new device types. This will require a major rethink of the organization’s role in supporting the interface between people and technology. This track helps Digital Workplace leaders to boost IT responsiveness and understand the applications of the
modern workplace.

C: Digital Workplace Program Management
Digital transformation is about more than technology alone. A successful digital workplace program means identifying opportunities, prioritizing investments, as well as ensuring that the workforce is able and willing to embrace an equally disruptive transformation in the workplace. This track will feature guidance on setting up, running a digital workplace program, engaging with strategic stakeholders, establishing appropriate organization and governance structures, and identifying metrics for tracking progress and aligning with business priorities.

D: Future of Work
The impact of new technologies is reshaping the workplace and the way we work. Technologies that can learn from data and adapt to context are also seeping into activities that require skill, judgment, creativity or decision making. People can work with technology to see patterns, look for evidence, learn faster, make better decisions or communicate more effectively. A successful digital workplace program should aim to make smart technology more accessible as part of everyday work. This track will highlight new ways of technology-enabled thinking and working, together with the augmentation of human performance vs automation. It will also explore future of work scenarios to help prepare for a future where machines may become just as important part of the workforce.
