  • Employee experience is vital to (revitalize) business performance, and today’s economic realities require targeted approaches to optimize EX in 2021. Important questions that EX strategies and practitioners in large organizations must therefore address are: - What really is employee experience? - How do companies identify opportunities for EX improvement with the highest ROI? - What does an EX management program look like in practice? Volker Jacobs reports from the current study "The State of the Human Experience of Work" by TI People and from his work as an international expert on the employee experience at large organizations.

  • Employees are being expected to adapt to rapidly changing, always-on work environments like never before. Covid may have accelerated this reality, but it was already happening in the world of work before Covid hit and it will continue to be a fact of working life as the pace and frequency of change continues to increase into the future. Both leaders and employees therefore need to proactively embrace an agile mindset and skill-set to thrive in this future of work. But what are these enduring tips and skills that will help us adapt to the ever changing world of work and to build successful careers into the future ? And with all the talk about mindset these days, what is it (really) and how can you change and develop it ? Sharing both the background research and practical examples, Kevin will discuss what an Agile Mindset and an Agile Skillset are in practical terms. He will also explore how HR and business leaders can help employees embrace and develop these qualities in order to thrive, rather than just cope, in the future of work.

  • The crisis we are facing today is a whole different thing, with a wholly different gravitas and scale than any crisis before. Comprising a more profound threat to lives as well as livelihoods. Heartbreakingly eliminating many small, hand-built companies and dangerously threatening large companies and their many employees. Without a current or historic timetable for recovery. With unexpected changes to business models, practices, and supply chains that will redefine the relationships between companies, their employees, and their customers for a long time—in some ways, likely for all time. Join this inspiring keynote by New York Times bestseller Stan Slap to learn about making a return: It is the job of management to bring good answers to bad circumstances. Plus: Now, let’s fix this.
