Computers + Culture = Cash: Two Experts Talk One Strategy That Can Pay Off Big Time

SHRM 2016 Annual Conference & Exposition
You will learn how to navigate crucial HR challenges, solve for them both from a technical and corporate perspective, and create one strategy.

HR practitioners have (finally) realized that you need to add technical expertise in order to enhance your current value and future marketability. But most companies rush into either technology or cultural improvements without taking a breath to determine where they intersect. This session will take turns breaking down the technical and cultural implications of five topics: recruiting, engagement, recognition, development and retention. This session will help you learn:

  • How to create one strategy that encompasses both technical and cultural changes in addressing HR challenges.
  • The risks of rushing into one or the other without proper forethought.
  • When the technology should drive culture, and vice versa.
  • How that one strategy can translate to better business performance.
