Overview of the event

"Human capital" is sometimes used synonymously with "human resources", although human capital typically refers to a narrower effect. Human resources are no longer just recruitment and training of employees, but also a part of future strategy for any company.

In this fast-moving world characterised by constant change, HR transformation is not optional. Organisations have to overcome decades of legacy systems, siloed working, lack of agility, among other obstacles.

At HR Innovation Summit we will discuss and share key challenges along the digital transformation journey and success stories in optimizing employee experience.

X Topic Abstract

This session will address the increasing focus on EX (Employee Experience) and asks if it is just a buzzword or if it really has a bigger role to play in driving an organization’s performance, brand value and overall culture. The session will take a practical approach to embracing EX and take examples from a few regional and global entities to address a series of questions: How does EX relate to Customer Experience (CX)? What are the cornerstones of EX? How can we leverage technology to reinforce the employee’s sense of belonging? How can we create experiences that continue to enrich, motivate, and demonstrate to employees that they are highly valued, their physical and virtual spaces are supportive, and their contributions are meaningful, in line with the organization’s goals and values?
