Newly Announced Ninth Keynote to Reveal Findings from New Study, Including Takeaways for Increasing Resilience While Navigating the COVID-19 Era
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., Oct. 13, 2020 -- The HR Technology Conference & Exposition® today announced that renowned researcher, New York Times best-selling author and leading authority on employee productivity, leadership and management, Marcus Buckingham, will deliver the keynote, “Resilience: How to Build It in Yourself and in Those You Lead.” Buckingham, founder of the Strengths Revolution and known as the world’s top expert on strengths and talent, will, for the first time, publicly reveal findings from the largest-ever global study on resilience, including what constitutes resilience, what causes it and how to build it across organizations. Buckingham will present at the free virtual event on Thursday, October 29, 2020, at 3:00 p.m. ET.
During his session at HR Tech, Buckingham, using the research as a guide, will share actionable insights and advice, offering attendees specific prescriptions to increase resilience in themselves and those they lead. Buckingham’s research undertook two field studies to answer: what is resilience and how can people cultivate it in their own lives? The first study focused on identifying the sources of resilience, pinpointing how to measure it and the best ways to build it. The second study posed ten key questions to more than 25,000 working adults from 25 countries and looked at how a country’s response to COVID-19 impacted resilience levels.
Rebecca McKenna, Vice President, Global Events and Publisher at LRP Media Group, commented, “We’re thrilled to have Marcus present at this year’s HR Technology Conference and on such an important topic. 2020 continues to test the resilience of individuals, teams and organizations. It’s become a skill that everyone needs to cultivate and nurture, both at work and in their everyday lives. With Marcus’ industry expertise and recent research, this will be another ‘can’t miss’ session.”
The HR Technology Conference & Exposition® will take place Tuesday, October 27 – Friday, October 30, 2020. Buckingham will join a stacked roster of keynotes, which also includes Jason Averbook, CEO and founder of Leapgen; Josh Bersin, global industry analyst and dean of The Josh Bersin Academy; Stacia Garr, co-founder and principal analyst of RedThread Research; Stacey Harris, Chief Research Officer for Sapient Insights Group and Dr. Tolonda Tolbert, co-founder and head of Strategy and Culture at Eskalera.

Pandemic, massive racial and political unrest, economic disruption, men in space, generational conflict, cities burning. You could be forgiven if you think we’ve been transported back to the 1960s. For a long time, nothing much happened. Then, whammo. It’s all happening at once.
The progress toward a society rooted in equality stalled some time ago. It took a political administration that says the quiet part out loud to pull the covers off the thing we didn’t want to see: We live in a class-driven society. And the primary determinant of class is skin color. Our organizations are reflections of the structural forces that drive unequal access to resources, education, jobs, and technology.
What is Blockchain? Isn’t it something to do with cryptocurrency? Why should I care about blockchain as an HR professional? If you are asking these questions, you aren’t alone.
Blockchain in Simple Terms
You’ll often hear blockchain described as a “distributed, decentralized, public ledger” or a “record-keeping technology.” It’s widely associated with cryptocurrencies since it was first officially outlined over 10 years ago as the protocol used in the creation of the Bitcoin network.
Often touted as complex — and it is if you really dig into the details — the broader concept of the technology itself is easier to grasp. Essentially, blockchain is a shared database or ledger that houses records validated by a community rather than a single entity. Each block contains data and is akin to a page of a ledger. As new records are created, the blocks are linked to the previous block to form a chain.
In my last column, I set out to articulate what the team at H3 HR Advisors was considering the primary challenges facing HR and business leaders as they continue to deal with the coronavirus impact today and to plan for a still-uncertain tomorrow. One month later, while perhaps a few elements of the complex array of moving parts impacting work and business have become more clear, many — if not most — have not. And, while perhaps some of us are working more actively toward the restoration of the “normal,” most of us are probably not quite there yet.
