Session: Rethinking Strategic HR Service Delivery

HR Service Delivery is a hot topic these days; it’s the first line of defense in managing the needs of your workforce. How does it stack up in the sense of cultivating and nurturing a relationship and overall experience for your employees? Even more important, automating and creating efficiencies around the HR processes that aren’t strategic frees up your HRBPs to do the work that is.

Session: Put in Place the Nuts and Bolts or Your Team Will Go Nuts and Bolt

If you’ve ever seen a demo of a robust HCM suite, you know the salesperson spends a disproportionate amount of time on the stuff that makes you drool relative to how much use those features will get. Conversely, whether you're buying a system or already have one, there's an assumption that your system's foundation - Core HR, benefits, payroll - is simply going to work the way you want it to. In this session, using specific examples of both speakers and crowd-sourcing experiences, we'll show you how that false assumption can come back to bite you and your team. Even better, we’ll help you to focus on creating a baseline for the future innovation you actually desire.
