Digital HR Strategy – How to build and maintain

Our HR/Workforce Technology Strategy is where is all begins  why build a strategy, the tools to build the strategy and what are the components of the strategy will all be covered during this first session of the Digital HR Workshop.  You will leave with an understanding of how to build your strategy and the tools necessary to begin this journey.  How do you create your vision?  How to do measure alignment?  How do you determine what HR wants to be great at versus performing at? These are all questions we will cover in this first section of the workshop.


9:30 am

Introduction to Design Thinking

As the world has shifted from a place where HR uses the tools and the workforce is serviced to a model where the workforce uses the tools and the HR department is there to support, our HR Service Delivery model must change drastically. In this section of the workshop, we will cover topics including; why the HR Service Delivery model is changing, how to design the right model for your organization and what the tools needed are to succeed in 2017 and beyond.  We will also cover an introduction to design thinking that will be a necessity for designing all processes and thinking through all deployments into the future. You will leave with tools to help build this model.

HR Systems Architecture – Getting the data right for the future

Having the right MDM (Master Data Model)and the right overall system design is mandatory to take advantage of the tools and technologies offered in the market today and more importantly, to deliver the best overall experience for the workforce and deliver the right data to the business.  How to build integration models, how to think through single vendor vs. best of breed and how to truly realize an integrated experience for all shareholders will be covered in depth in this section.  Tools to think through your data model and a process guide to making process decisions and realizing integration points will be a takeaway from this section.

12:00 pm

Why governance is mandatory and how to implement it

Decision making and “air traffic control”of HR and workforce technology is even more mandatory and more difficult to day than in the past.  The ability to include the business in the planning and deployments of processes/solutions is a requirement and gaining “buy-in” and prioritizing efforts have become one of the more important aspects of our roles. In this section we will cover how to build the right governance models,what governance should provide to the organization and how to leverage governance to achieve our goals and visions for our roles.  You will leave with templates and tools to drive governance in your organization.

Deployment and Sustainment of cloud solutions

Whether we are looking at deploying cloud solutions for the first time or already have, the concept of deployment and sustainment have changed massively with cloud as our delivery vehicle.  How we run our solutions, how we optimize them for the future and continue to innovate is the ROI (run, optimize,innovate) recipe for success.  In this section, we will cover what it takes to be successful, how to structure your HR and IT organizations to be optimized in this deliver model and how to plan your sprints versus marathons to continue to keep up.  You will leave with new ideas and templates to plan perpetual beta within your HR and IT organizations. 

2:30 pm

Change Management in 2017

In 2017 and beyond, change management is not what it used to be.  The concept of HR being a marketing function is new to most yet a crucial component of success going forward.  Who are our audiences,how do we reach them and what is important to them are key concepts to achieving success in marketing and change and they are new concepts to many in HR and IT.  We will cover how to conduct audience and message mapping, how to go beyond a campaign to an ongoing branding mission and how to focus on the “what matters” to the “who audience”.  You will leave with tools and template to deploy processes and solutions in your organization.

Storytelling – The future of HR is no HR

The reason we do anything in the HR and technology space is to provide data and tools to the business to help them make better decisions. Through our history,we have delivered HR reports to the business without them truly knowing what to do with the data and leaving the business feeling that HR is “out of touch”with the business.  Storytelling is a key concept mandatory to turn HR data into business data and a skill that will be required of all of us into the future. You will leave this section with ideas and tools to turn your data in to stories and why a story will help make your message concrete into the future.

Unleash

UNLEASH pre-event will gather +200 Talent and Recruitment leaders, investors and startups at the historic General’s Residence in Fort Mason, San Francisco. One side of the residence will exclusively look at where HR and Recruitment leaders are investing their time and budgets, whilst the other side of the building will showcase the startups looking to disrupt the industry and investors and incubators looking to get behind them. We believe UNLEASH will become the leading movement on the Future of Work.

From Broadcast to Community: How True Talent Communities Engage

Lucian Tarnowski

Lucian Tarnowski

Founder & CEO

BraveNew

The word 'Community' has been improperly used as a term in talent acquisition and learning. True communities enable members to participate with each other, share learnings, collaborate around a shared purpose. A community is not a job alert system. This workshop will highlight how a community can be used to engage, develop and ultimately influence the employment decisions of their members. We will explore some case studies of successful communities powered by the BraveNew knowledge sharing platform.

What your ATS cannot tell you

Ian Cook

Ian Cook

Head of Workforce Solutions

Visier

Recruiting is arguably the HR function with the highest visibility across every organization. Talent acquisition remains an ever-present concern for business leaders who risk reductions in productivity if they cannot fill key roles. To ensure success, recruiters need to move away from hard work and hope, and instead apply analytics to drive their results.

How To Use Memes For Diversity Recruiting

Turns out, we all want to laugh and be entertained from time to time. Well, what if you could use that to your advantage whilst recruiting a diverse staff? Holy shit Bat Man, you can, you just have to be bold and make fun of the taboos that hold society back. Sounds easy, right? Yeah, it's not, that's why recruiters avoid using humor while recruiting. They blame HR – HR is way too conservative. The hiring manager is way to too conservative. The candidates are way too conservative. Yeah, well don’t buy that of that garbage. It comes down to two things: (1) being bold, investing in repelling talent as much as attracting talent, and (2) being confident in your in decisions and weathering the inevitable storm that will come with bold marketing. When you’re bold, people hate on you. They hate you because they ain’t you.

So let’s review, we know that a diverse and inclusive team wins over a non-diverse and non-inclusive team. On this we can agree, right? And we know that history favors the bold. On this we can agree, right? And we know that the social internet is a smorgasbord of memes. On this we can agree, right?

I love it when we all agree.

During this session, I (William for lovers of those that use the third person) will provide examples of how to use memes for diversity recruiting. You’ll have the knowledge and/or tools to be bold. Will you have the cajones to be bold? Only time will tell.

Total Talent Acquisition: 5 things that are going to make you re-think the way you run your TA team!

Job boards replaced the newspaper, social media replaced the job boards, in-house teams replaced agencies but what is the next big trend coming down the line? Littered with lots of real-world case studies, Johnny Campbell will shed a light on how AI, marketing automation, specialization, centralization and strategic sourcing are changing the landscape of talent acquisition forever.

The elephant in the room

Bill Boorman

Bill Boorman

Founder

#Tru

Whilst all the talk has been around culture, culture fit and retention, is this doing anything about fixing the problems of diversity? Is retention of employment, the HiPo principle or retention of employment as a target really make our organisations better, and if everyone follows employer branding "best practice", do we all just look the same?

In this session Borrman questions conventional wisdom, and asks if we shouldnt be doing things different. Expect a few surprises and controversy. Hold on to your hats.
