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. It’s time for companies to view former employees differently and create an offboarding experience that will benefit the company’s talent acquisition and development strategies. This talk will explain why organizations should consider developing formal offboarding programs along with five activities to get your program started.

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.

The 2017 edition of the HR Technology Conference wrapped up about a week and a half ago, and other than transitioning back to my real world day-to-day responsibilities, I’ve also spent the time since then processing what I heard and what I learned. When I attend a conference, I usually like to hold off writing about it until a little while afterwards because I like to take a look back at my notes, scribbles, and tweets and see if there is some sort of theme that emerges, especially from an HR practitioner perspective. And when I did so this year, the one thing that came across loud and clear can be summed up in a quote from Friday keynote speaker Josh Bersin – “People Still Matter.”
