For retention? What are the pitfalls—and how do you avoid them? How will demographic and technological trends re-shape what CEOs and CHROs must do to win going forward? How will a workforce increasingly supplemented by AI, automation and thinking machines change what it means to lead? How do you prepare now—strategically—to set your company up for success in the fast-arriving work world of 2030? Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., President and CEO of SHRM, a global organization serving over 300,000 HR professionals, will give us a glimpse of where we’re going based on SHRM’s extensive research—as well as strategies to help you thrive in the decade(s) ahead.
