War for top talent has never been fiercer.

    “EXpresso Shot of HR Disruption”, by Stephan Vincent, Founder of eX Summit and eX Podcast.

    I’m sorry to tell you this, but the HR function the way you know it is dying.
    The point is that HR is going through a radical shift the same way the marketing function was disrupted 15 ago by data and digital transformation. Marketing today has nothing to do with what marketing was back then.
    Data driven insight, a focus on customer pain points, the development of strategies to engage with customers and to create personalized experiences will become the norm in the world of HR in the coming years. It’s already started!
    Whether you like it or not, change has come. It’s up to you to decide what you’re going to do with it.

    “EX Playbook: Foundations To Impact…The Story That Brought It To Life!”, by Lina Stern, Head of Employee Experience and Organizational Design at S’well AND Melissa Bitner, Sr Manager Talent Experience at Vrbo.

    “Everyone wants change, but nobody wants to change.”

    It is not easy to get everyone moving in the same direction. Employee Experience is both a driver and a vehicle for sparking newness and movement in your organization. It is a philosophy, a methodology and a way to start the culture shift needed and frankly demanded by our internal consumers, our employees. Discovering the levers to change the culture by listening to the voice of the employee allows an organization to personalize the experience for their team members.

    Join us on how our journey of gathering the voice of our employees helped to build a unique culture where people are engaged to drive business results.

    “Building Employee Engagement Into Your CSR Initiatives”, by Meredith Ferguson, Managing Director at DoSomething Strategic.

    Corporations today know that putting purpose and doing good at the core of its business
    model is increasingly important, especially among employees. These companies also know they need to do more than just tell their employees about its CSR efforts—they need to engage their employees in the positive impact they’re driving with these CSR efforts.
    But creating engagements that truly drive employees to action is a huge challenge—less than 8% of employees, on average, take advantage of corporate volunteer programs. Meredith will deliver a behind-the-scenes look at the insights and tactics that guide DoSomething’s
