 2020 has been a challenging, volatile and transformative year for everyone but none so much as our human resources leaders.  As we start to look back on 2020 and determine the long term ramifications this year will have on our future, CHRO’s need to rise above the commotion to reflect and forecast the implications of larger global, national and professional forces that are at play. 

Join your peers at this interactive session to discuss the current and future-state of the CHRO and our workforces:

  • Implications of recent and upcoming global and national events 

  • The changing and emerging role of the CHRO in the organization post-crisis

  • Identifying inflection points on the horizon and how they may impact the workforce, talent and human resources

2020 opened the world’s eyes to the vital and fundamental importance of diversity, inclusion and belonging within our own organizations, and to society as a whole. A volatile backdrop of social injustice combined with increased polarization has accelerated the need for DE&I programs to move beyond diversity quotas and other standard metrics to focus on meaningful change related to creating cultures of inclusion and belonging - where differences aren’t a disruption, rather a celebration.  Join this boardroom to discuss:


  • Identifying marginalized populations in your workforce and promoting a culture that values uniqueness over sameness 

  • Developing policies, processes and programs that drive inclusion and a sense belonging

  • Strategies for driving inclusion in traditional institutions with entrenched cultures and working with resistant individuals who are crucial to the organization

Like a sudden and unexpected earthquake, the workforce landscape and HR’s priorities completely shifted under everyone’s feet almost overnight. HR is facing a tidal wave of competing challenges of needing to reduce costs, drive a workforce that is suddenly operating in a way it never has before, shifting corporate values of what is important and wider societal movements that impact employees and the workforce. The aftershock has resulted in a misalignment of what is being measured and what needs to be measured now and in the future. Join this thought provoking discussion to consider:


  • Emerging metrics that are increasingly important to incorporate into your analytics program

  • New ways of measuring productivity in virtual and hybrid environments

  • How to develop a more agile people analytics program that can evolve to predictive and prescriptive insights

As the business response shifts from survival and recovery to renewal and redesign, understanding and crafting a new and more meaningful employee experience will be at the top of every CHRO’s agenda.  Reimagining employee experience and engagement will see HR breaking down silos and setting in motion a snowball of organizational courage to embed employee connectedness, belonging and well-being into the DNA of organizational culture. 

Bring a spirit of collaborative problem solving to this interactive boardroom to discuss:


  • How the employee journey and the moments that matter are changing

  • How to operationalize care, well-being and connection in an organization

  • Crafting your new employee experience strategy and metrics for the next normal

One of the many impacts the pandemic has had on employees and leadership alike is that people are no longer able to leave their personal identify and experiences at the door when they come to work. Now we are all having to bring our whole selves to work. Topics such as race, gender, religion and politics which were once deemed as inappropriate to discuss in the workplace are now impacting employees’ lives at work and at home and can no longer be ignored by employers. As a result HR leaders’ role is shifting even more towards needing to be the employee advocate and driving a culture of trust, purpose and belonging from the top down. Join this thought-provoking keynote to discuss:

  • How to create a safe space and facilitate candid conversations and dialogue among workers
  • Training managers and supervisors how to address social injustice with employees and deescalate sensitive situations
  • How to effectively run affinity groups and ERG’s and promote allyship in the workplace

The current crisis has thrown workforce planning and hybrid workforce models into the spotlight while previous talent strategies now need to be reimagined.  In turbulent and uncertain times workforce and talent plans have to be able to quickly pivot and respond to changes necessitating a more agile and scenario based approach. As many move to a permanent hybrid workforce model, combined with a need to be able to quickly and continuously adapt, this has necessitated some to reevaluate existing organizational structures, roles and work design.  Join this thought provoking boardroom to discuss:


  • What does an agile workforce and talent strategy look like in practice and how to use scenario planning to be more agile

  • Implications, opportunities and risks of unconstrained talent and the opportunity to rightsize your talent footprint.

  • Capturing competitive advantage from new talent scenarios and opportunities

If this black swan event has a silver lining it is that corporate boards’ eyes have been opened to the true strategic value and critical importance of human resources in an organization. The combination of moving towards stakeholder value creation, with Wall Street’s recognition that a company’s intangible assets and human capital drive a significant portion of a company’s market value, along with HR’s central role in responding to the current crisis...mean that CHRO’s have a seat at the table like never before.  

Join this practical discussion where all participants are encouraged to share their own tips and discuss:


  • CHRO’s role in shaping culture, organizational structure and human capital assets aligned with business strategy

  • Linking human capital and culture metrics to the value of long-term strategic assets and value creation

  • Why CHRO’s are best positioned to drive and deliver innovation across the organization
