The HR function has crossed the threshold into the era of digital business, where speed, resilience, culture, creativity and high aptitude teams are the only enduring sources of competitive advantage.  Winning is not about technology, but about teams of people who use technology to create disruptive products and services.  Not surprisingly, we have witnessed the rise of the Chief People Officer, as traditional HR functions are outsourced in order to focus on building high performing, feedback driven cultures.
To compete, companies must learn how to seamlessly weave Millennials, Gig workers, and strategic partners into their workforce.  This interactive talk will engage the audience as we examine how HR must transform itself into a talent management function capable of helping leaders get the best out of their people.  This will require HR to create new roles, acquire new skills and build deep expertise in how culture and talent can be methodically applied to create higher returns on human capital, linked to bottom line outcomes.  It is not an exaggeration to say that the transformed HR organization will not only be strategic, but will become one of the most important functions in the Digital Enterprise.

Key Points of the Program:
·        Understanding what the transformation of HR means to you and your your future
·        What you should be doing to prepare now
·        Understanding why the rise of the digital enterprise and innovation economy are putting talent, not technology, on center stage
·        Seeing how the Rehumanization of Work led us to this moment, and why this is a major trend that is unstoppable
·        Understanding why the run the business aspects of HR will move outside the enterprise, leaving grow the business as HR’s strategic focus
·        Seeing that HR will finally get a strategic seat at the table

Prior to PeopleProductive, Frank was a turnaround CIO at three different companies, most recently Guardian Life Insurance Company of America, as well as the President of during the .com era.  Early on, he developed a knack for transforming organizations and spent many years turning around failing IT divisions across corporations.  After his third turnaround, Wander realized failure had a consistent root cause: corporate cultures where the leaders knew everything about products, processes and technology, but very little about the human factors that underpin workforce productivity, innovation and bottom line.  As a biology major that was always intensely interested in the human side of business, Wander witnessed how powerful human understanding was when it was methodically applied in the workplace.  Frank was deeply moved by this knowledge gap, and founded PeopleProductive in order to create solutions that enable companies, and the people that work for them, to flourish together.
