4:30 PM - 5:10 PM Transforming Culture to Empower People in the Digital Age

In 2017, forward-thinking enterprise leaders are striving to redesign their structures in order to operate in more flexible, collaborative, flatter networks of teams, which are connected by agile information systems and a shared culture of continuous learning. Enterprise structures that have been solely based on linear hierarchy and scalable efficiency are no longer thriving in the digital age where experimentation, adaptability, and faster time-to-market are paramount.

In such a context, strong workplace culture and high engagement levels will continue to be the glue that holds teams together and enable organizations to thrive. Study after study have shown that organizations with a strong sense of purpose and a well defined set of values have more engaged and productive employees, and as a consequence, outperform their competitors.

Our Opening Keynote will highlight how game-changer CHROs are taking the lead on:

•Promoting an employee-first mentality that enables listening and continuous feedback
•Partnering with business leaders to reorganize teams into smaller, interconnected, project-based teams
•Increasing efficient communication
•Establishing new learning strategies to help develop next-gen leaders
