Engagement and the Future of Work: Finding Our Way Forward

  • Friday, April 03, 2020
  • 7:45 AM - 10:30 AM
  • The Tower Club



The world of work is changing.  In recent years, a number of factors—including artificial intelligence, globalization, and the gig economy—have dramatically altered the way we work. In many organizations, these changes have impacted the employee contract, shifting what employees expect from their organizations and what organizations expect from their employees. So what’s the best way to attract, retain, and engage the workforce of the future? During this session, Dr. Patrick Hyland will review these trends, discuss advances in engagement and total rewards research and practice, and discuss how the field needs to evolve in order to meet the needs of tomorrow’s workforce.

By the end of the presentation, attendees will be able to:

  • Workforce trends
  • Emergence of new employee contract
  • Critical employee needs
  • Employee experience research framework
