Part 2:  HR Tech Priorities for the BIG Reset 
October 29, 2020 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

The events of 2020 have accelerated and altered the workforce priorities for every business. Alongside re-thinking the HR strategy, and how it supports the new world of work, CHROs also need to re-order their tech investments and the “stack” of digital capabilities that are deployed to support their goals. Revising HR strategy without altering the tech investments will not lead to success.

This session will cover:

  • Why building reliance on a single vendor puts you behind your competitors
  • The technology advances that make an “eco-system” reliable
  • The top 3 HR tech capabilities for 2021
  • How to de-risk technology decisions and investments
