2017 HR Think Tank: Transforming HR in the New Workplace
Why You Should Attend!
Today’s organizations are driving HR transformation in a way that redefines the workforce and mobilizes businesses into the digital age. The need to embrace strategic innovation is essential, yet organizations are hesitant to reshape the workplace due to today’s rapidly changing business environment. The future workplace is now, and organizations need to begin visualizing their new HR function.
Argyle Executive Forum, in partnership with KPMG, is bringing together HR leaders across all industries to discuss these topics as well as trends highlighted in the 2017 KPMG Global HR Transformation Survey report at our 2017 HR Think Tank: Transforming HR in the New Workplace in Dallas. Join us to hear insights from subject matter specialists and HR executives on how key trends can build a strategy for managing change and HR transformation.
