First of all, I greatly appreciate the fact that the role of women in technology was highlighted - not just from an end-user perspective, but from the leadership in creating and driving the innovation of the technology. I also appreciated seeing so many men attending sessions. Highlighting women doesn’t mean exclusion of men - it means raising everyone’s awareness, and it takes all of us to be more inclusive.

Organizations spend a lot of time and resources creating a winning employment brand and candidate experience. But once an employee tenders their resignation … well, they’re toast.

Even in this day and age, numerous job seekers — and even your own employees — remain digitally disconnected. They either don’t have email addresses, cannot navigate the internet or eschew SMS. It’s true! This digital divide crosses generations, geographies and industries and it’s about much more than tech-aversion. Sharing real-world examples from her experience in various industries, Robin Schooling will discuss how HR technology innovators can understand the needs of the often-forgotten worker and effectively disrupt those who have not yet been disrupted.
