Why attend?

Technology is rapidly changing society with artificial intelligence, robotics, 3-D printing, drones, and wearables integrating into the work environment. New technologies enable us to stay connected and give real-time feedback more than ever before. At the same time, business models are taking advantage of contract or contingent workers - in part to address talent scarcity but also in response to what people say they want out of a job. These forces are changing the notion of what it means to be an “employee,” which has far-reaching implications and demands reevaluating how organizations prepare for the future.

Join this live webinar in which speakers from Mercer will discuss the results of their 2017 Global Talent Trends Study. This session will explore how business leaders, HR professionals, and employees are viewing the world of work - both today and in the future. These speakers will offer insights into the changing demographic profile of employees and how shifting expectations of the work experience are challenging the traditional model of what it means to “go to work”.

This session relates to the Leadership & Navigation competency, Relationship Management competency, Global & Cultural Effectiveness competency, Business Acumen competency, HR Strategic Planning functional area, Talent Acquisition functional area, Employee Engagement & Retention functional area, Total Rewards functional area, Technology Management functional area, and HR in the Global Context functional area on the SHRM BoCK.

In this 60-minute presentation you will learn:

  • How to align employee needs with an organization’s mission
  • Ways to define career paths for a positive impact on retention
  • Focusing on the “whole person” agenda, including Health and Wealth benefits
  • How to mitigate risk by building a diverse portfolio of skills and a culture of innovation

Who will benefit?

  • HR professionals
  • HR directors and managers
  • HR administrators
