A: To me, the biggest trends are these:
A: What am I not looking forward to? I love being Co-Chair of this event because to me it’s a cut above: a great idea, a great format. Keynotes, meetings, one on ones, and so much networking. We hardly ever get a chance to enjoy each other’s thoughts and ideas in a format that is designed for connecting. This is a really terrific way to bring people together — there are so many amazing minds and innovators coming together. I am looking forward to that feeling of being blown away.
A: It all goes back to the fact that we’re people: this is a people-oriented, highly social field. And even when it comes to the amazing tech we’re going to be seeing, it’s developed by people. The energy of having people together intentionally, right now, is incredible. HR Tech is remarkably sophisticated and fascinating, and what happens here is that we can ask the questions we want to ask, we can talk about it, we can discuss how it applies to challenges and initiatives in HR, and all come away with a far better understanding of what comes next.
At the HR Tech Connect Summit later this month, we’ll continue the discussion on HR technology for the future workforce. Meghan will be participating in the Keynote Address, Creating the HR Function of the Future: Transforming HR With Technology. Additional information about the event is available here.
