HR, Social Media and Digital Transformation
18 March @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm£399
In this substantial update to Symposium’s long running HR and Social Media course, Jon Ingham expands the agenda to cover other existing and emerging disruptive technologies and their impacts on organisations and HR.
Social media plus mobile, analytics and cloud (SMAC) technologies have already had a profound effect on many people and organisations. However, we are now at the beginning of the 4th Industrial Revolution in which these and other digital technologies are predicted to change the nature of societies and economies. Business models are being increasingly disrupted and the world of working is expected to be fundamentally transformed as well. This means that the HR profession now needs to move on from evolving to revolutionising its approaches.
However, this change is not just about using new technology but also involves responding to changes in the way that people think and behave. HR will therefore need to manage changes in the workforce, including to the number and type of jobs offered as well as an increasing number of other ways of contributing to a business. It will also need to create new ways of managing and organizing these people. And it will need to innovate the employee experience responding to the new expectations of these new workers as well as the existing people in the workforce.
HR will also need to manage the disruption that digital business will bring and which will require a more people-centric, collaborative approach to change if organisations are going to navigate the revolution successfully. And HR will need to develop its own use of social and digital technologies and more social, community and network based approaches to manage and organise HR in order to achieve its own objectives.
Attend this session to get ahead of all these disruptions and develop a proactive response in your own business.
