The Future of Work is Now: Can Emerging Tech Lead to Smarter, Happier Employees?

Hosted by Butterfly

friday, March 3, 2017

11:00 AM - 11:45 AM

TimesCenter: Stage Two

Gallup research has found that a staggering 70 percent of the U.S. workforce is “not engaged” at work. Why? Though there are undoubtedly a variety of factors at play, a big reason is that millennials now comprise the lion’s share of the labor force and a occupy a growing segment of managerial posts. These employees have expectations, beliefs and behaviors that are entirely new when compared to the generations that came before them—and yet, many organizations have been slow to adapt their employee engagement and development processes for a new generation of talent.

Audience takeaways:

  • How companies from large, multinational organizations to lean startups can use technology to empower employees to make their voice heard
  • How talent teams can use tech to confront the leadership gap head-on
  • The secrets to building more transparent corporate cultures
  • Case studies from millennial-dominated organizations that are finding ways to engage employees and develop the leaders of tomorrow
