Presentation: Deloite Workplace Experience

Abstract: This presentation will cover:

  • The Move to Digital – What that means for Human Capital and Talent in an Organization.  Digital is more than just AI, Process Automation, Machine Learning, etc.  Digital is a mindset.  Without that mindset, further investment in technology is mainly wasted.
  • The Rise of the Individual – Leading a new generation and meeting their expectations requires different leadership approaches, different views on work, the use of technology, schedules, work/life balance, wellness, etc.  And with multiple generations at work, different approaches should be used.
  • The Increasing Importance of Culture – How understanding “How things Work here” and the different cultures that exist across different organizations is critical for manager and leaders.
