Apr 13, 2020 12:28:36 PM / by HR Tech

The HR Tech team is once again gearing up to deliver an enriched program to attendees this fall with the same overall intention it has had for the past 20 years: to help HR and IT professionals advance their organization’s HR success through technology today while preparing for tomorrow. 

Although the full agenda will not be unveiled until June 2, we can tell you that the program content will touch on today’s most pertinent HR issues including the workforce and workplace impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic to the reskilling of employees for the digital age and everything in between.

Topics that Made the Cut for HR Tech 2020 Session Tracks

Here’s a peek at a few of the 13 tracks that define the type of content you’ll find in sessions at this year’s conference. For a complete list of all the tracks visit HR Tech 2020 Session Tracks.

Core HR

Turning benefits, payroll, workforce planning and other core HR principles into strategic talent advantages can be challenging. In the Core HR Session Track, you’ll hear from HR leaders from innovative organizations share their examples of how they leveraged modern technology. You’ll specifically hear how Cisco unleashes people power with talent mobility as Jason Philips, VP Digital HR & Global Talent Acquisition for Cisco Systems describes how they use a ‘tech and touch’ approach to combine highly personalized human guidance with cloud-based technology and how they match employee skills with their work rather than their job title.

Talent Acquisition

The Talent Acquisition Session Track at HR Tech 2020 focuses on helping companies gain an edge in the modern talent marketplace through technology. You’ll hear from some of the world’s most forward-thinking employers and how they have applied the HR technology solutions to keep their organizations stocked with talented employees. You’ll hear from Talent Acquisition leaders like Brad Cook, VP Global Talent Acquisition for Teradata and Stacy Chapman, CEO of SwoopTalent as they discuss how to build and manage the perfect technology stack. Cook will also dive into how he works with vendors to ensure his team is leading in talent acquisition innovation. 

HR Analytics

With the continuous advances and increased deployment of technology solutions, HR leaders have never had more data about their workforces. But gleaning insight from this data to help make better HR and talent decisions can be difficult. The sessions in the HR Analytics track will give you practical knowledge and examples of how organizations are using people data to drive broader business objectives. For example, Visier’s Chief People Officer Paul Rubenstein and Dr. Jason Pagan, Vice President of Human Resource and Workforce Planning and Analytics at Ascension will discuss how Ascension used workforce data to drive millions of dollars in cost savings through productivity changes while addressing retention and employee satisfaction issues.  

New Session Tracks Added for HR Tech 2020

For those who have attended in recent years the above 3 tracks may sound familiar — and they are — as they are all still very important areas for HR. But in order to keep pace with the ever-changing needs of today’s organizations along with the rapid pace of innovation in HR technology, we’re also introducing several new Session Tracks in 2020. Some of these Session Tracks include Diversity, Inclusion … and Belonging; HR Tech for SME (Small and Medium Sized Enterprises); Learning/Reskilling, Workplace Innovation amongst others.
