Talent Management Summit 2019

New Orleans, LA, United States

An Integrated Talent Management Approach Aligned with the Future of Work

The unprecedented rate at which modern technology proliferates has created radically shifting context for the workforce, the workplace, and the very definition of 'work.' These shifts are changing the rules for nearly every organizational people practice, from learning to performance management.

To help you and your organization navigate the evolving landscape, we've developed a program focused on embracing a fully digital workforce, with case studies, panels, and roundtables dedicated towards meeting the employees of the future where they are: in pursuit of meaningful, mission-driven work that supports real-time performance coaching and high-touch, personalized learning solutions fit for a life in motion.

Key Themes

  • Meaningful Employee Experiences: The success of your organization relies on tying the work that you do to your mission purpose in a clear and compelling employer value proposition. Your leaders will learn how to exemplify a culture of constructive feedback and investment in the personal and professional development of their teams.
  • How to Future-Proof Your Workforce: Your L&D programs should capitalize on the latest trends in micro- and social learning to develop a digital first workforce. Your talent planning strategy must be forward-facing enough to account for skills and competencies needed for emerging roles and positions.
  • Performance Management for teams and agile environments: You must have a clear grasp of the organizational network analysis and employee journey mapping tools that are needed to empower high performing teams and project-based sprints.
  • Talent Analytics:  It is necessary that your talent acquisition and succession planning strategies are built on data-driven decisions. You will learn how to draw your automation roadmap with an eye towards augmenting skills gaps.
  • Advancing the D&I Agenda, Moving Away from Performance Ratings, and More!
