PANEL DISCUSSION: Big Data: It's Not How Big Your Data Set Is, It's How You Use It

The trends for cybersecurity aren’t good - data breaches are getting bigger, hackers are getting savvier, and the amount of compromised data is on the rise. And so are the costs - the average total cost of a data breach is 3.92 million dollars. HR sits in the crossroads of data – not only do handle sensitive information on employees, but you’re also a key role in creating and implementing secure IT policies.

FIRESIDE CHAT: Continuous Learning: The Secret to a Successful Workforce

Things are moving faster than ever before – there are more changes in our current lifetime than there have been a generation ago. Once upon a time, your skills may have lasted your entire work career. Now, though, those days are gone. Everyone in the organization needs to continuously learn and adapt in order to continue to succeed. Whether you need to re-skill employees for a new role altogether, keep workers up-to-date with changes affecting the position, or just stay abreast of new developments, continuous learning needs to be part of your organization and culture.

  • Supporting continuous learning with your culture
  • What types of continuous learning have been most effective – and why

THOUGHT LEADERSHIP: Redefining the 9-to-5: Work Hours Don't Apply Any Longer

The gig economy. Remote contractors. Full on flexibility. The future of work is not going to be 9 to 5. Instead, workers of all generations are seeking flexibility to accommodate their lifestyles. How you structure your employment offerings will determine how successful you are in attracting and retaining the best talent. You’ll hear best practices in how to use non-traditional employment opportunities, as well potential legal issues to be aware of when offering these options, including wage and hour concerns, and multistate workforces.

3:10pm - 3:55pm
PANEL DISCUSSION: The Future of Work Centers on Employees: Using Technology to Help Employees Thrive at Work

Everyday it seems like we're getting inundated with more information, more tasks to perform, more, more, and more without really understanding the impact it can have on employee well-being. We can’t control the future, but we can help create an environment that will allow our employees to thrive in this ever-changing era.

Learn the importance of employee well-being and its impact on sustained growth, and discover how to design strategies and programs that help employees thrive in an increasingly complex environment.
