Power to the people: How improving employee experience can drive better customer experiences

Wednesday, 14 November, 13:45 - 14:45

Session ID: HRPS252985

Your employees demand more from their workplace. They’re looking for technology that works and is easy to use. And they’re looking for substantive coaching from their managers. In short, employees want to be engaged. If you’re not delivering a top-notch employee experience, your workforce may seek another company that can. In this session, hear how leading organizations have prioritized their talent and the employee experience, and the positive effect it has had on their customers and businesses.

The future of HR: Putting smart to work and using AI for good

Wednesday, 14 November, 16:30 - 17:30

Session ID: HRPS252989

In this new era of disruption, AI can help you amplify the humanity of digital systems and augment human intelligence. For example, it can remove gender bias from your hiring process and performance reviews, take important, relevant information into account when it comes to compensation increases, and drive inclusion so an employee’s disability doesn’t limit their ability to move forward. Learn more about the great potential for cognitive technologies to have a positive effect on HR and recruiting processes by making them more inclusive and your business more diverse.
