Workshop 1: Game changing trends in HCM technology (and how to make them work for your organisation)
Human Capital Management (HCM) has been deeply studied for many decades. However, the past few years have seen rapid technology changes and emergence of new disruptive business models, at rates never seen before. These changes pose important questions for both HR and business leaders as past models/frameworks may no longer be effective in the new world.
In this session, Dean will explore:

Workshop 2: Identifying the skills gap for the future of work
Emerging technologies are disrupting the way we live and work today. Artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, driverless cars and robotised workspaces are now a reality, changing the industries we know and affecting the skills needed in the future. Aside from technical skills, human interaction and soft skills are going to be as important as hard skills in the near future. This session will discuss how we can prepare ourselves for a better future of work.

Workshop 3: Using the science of personality to improve organisational outcomes
Personality assessments have become a significant part of the leadership application process, however few HR professionals understand the science behind the latest assessments. This session will provide an overview of commonly used measures of personality and discuss the importance of using contemporary science to maximise the impact that personality assessments can have to improve key organisational outcomes such as turnover, productivity, culture match and leadership.

Workshop 4: From compliance to collaboration: The journey for organisations and leadership in the digital age
The digital age promises bigger, better, and faster across every organisation however the reality is different; digitisation will have social, human and environmental costs. Technology and data cannot replace human values – there is a key role for the future human, at work and at play. How can we value ourselves in the future and what are the implications for HR leaders in tomorrow’s digital world?
Dr Robert Coles - Chief Executive Officer, Roffey Park Institute
Workshop 5: Building a workforce ready for digital transformation
Senior business leaders agree that digital transformation is changing the nature of work and are looking to HR leaders to develop the digital expertise they need. As heads of HR try to realize the promise of digitalization, many are confronting widening skills gaps in their workforce. This session will discuss that contrary to conventional wisdom, this is not just about technological skills, but is about cultivating the full range of skills, from the creative to the complex cognitive capabilities that the future workforce will need.
