Employees don’t ask to be engaged, they ask to be helped. And their expectations have risen to consumer-grade levels — HR needs to provide “always-on” service whenever and wherever an employee needs it.

For both HR and employees, the reality is that the digital experience inside most companies is now starkly at odds with the experience we have everywhere else in our lives. Forward-thinking companies are looking to close this gap, so which way does the scale tip for HR technology investment: towards HR agility or the employee experience?

Three HR leaders from three of the world’s leading brands will discuss the challenges they face and how they are addressing them with HR technology including:
