Today’s global crisis is an accelerant in the ways we’re working and will have a lasting effect on business models and employee engagement models.  As companies quickly shift to leveraging a virtual workforce, issues such as maintaining employee engagement and being able to quickly respond to business challenges become increasingly more difficult.

In this session Jeff Douglas, Partner, IBM Talent and Transformation, will discuss how to address these challenges and accelerate your business by adopting a skills-based model and incorporating intelligent automation to digitally shift your HR strategy to embrace the future of work.

This session will address the following challenges and learning objectives:

·       Providing support for communication, collaboration and culture in a virtual operating model.
Investing in employees to ensure success as their jobs change in a virtual environment.
Ensuring your organization can quickly mobilize around new business challenges or opportunities.
