Corporate strategy, financial performance, and competitive advantage all hinge on attracting and retaining the right people, which has become a top challenge for companies today. Shifting worker expectations—accelerated by the pandemic and America’s racial reckoning, and evident in the Great Resignation—point to a sea change in the employee/employer dynamic. In this session, we’ll examine the factors and key questions shaping talent strategies today. Is the new employee mindset—prioritizing personal wellbeing, work/life balance, and corporate purpose—here to stay? Are talent acquisition and retention closely linked to corporate culture? And what are the keys to recruiting and retaining mission-critical talent in an increasingly tight, multi-generational labor market?

Controlling costs is the often-overlooked side of the coin when it comes to the success of every business strategy. In today’s inflationary environment, coupled with an energy crisis and supply chain woes, every company is being impacted by increased commodity costs, and in turn, increased fees on general costs of doing business. What are smart strategies to improve your expense management processes and mitigate these cost increases?
It starts with digitally transforming your expense management processes. Join other CFOs to explore actions you can take to automate manual processes to gain a better line of sight into your supply chain costs and ensure you are not over budget because of increased costs that are out of your control. Learn proven tactics to more effectively analyze underlying invoice data to ask the right questions, assess your contracts, renegotiate rates, and save hundreds of thousands of dollars each year.

We’ll explore how your organization can better tap into AI, automation and data analytics to put your employees in a more favorable position to succeed and harness new opportunities to serve your customers.

A strategy means nothing without the right people to execute it. And in today’s environment, most everyone appreciates that DE&I is critical to the success of an organization’s strategy execution. In diverse organizations, leaders lead differently and employees respond to training and engagement differently. That means you need to think about DE&I differently. We’ll explore how HR executives are using emerging technologies—like AI, data analytics and augmented reality—to improve their talent pipelines and leadership development efforts. From analyzing data to surface pay equity gaps and turnover risks and using AI to provide personalized coaching to managers based on their strength profile, to implementing new inclusion practices and hybrid work options, we’ll explore the tools and processes you can implement as you seek to develop winning teams. Additionally, we’ll share pitfalls to watch out for and important steps to avoid unintended biases in your DE&I efforts.
Participants will be divided into peer groups based on their C-Suite role to dive deeper into strategic issues.

Although many finance organizations have automated traditional financial and accounting processes, due to the time consumed in performing rote and repetitive manual tasks like accounts reconciliations, they’re just beginning to take the next step in becoming a digital-first enterprise.

How will you compete for the digital and technology experts you need to drive your strategy forward? How do you recruit candidates with critical thinking, business know-how and a good cultural fit? And what are you doing to mitigate the risk of your top finance talent leaving? Join this breakout to learn how strategic CFOs are building their finance teams of the future.

Today’s digitally-driven world requires far more tech-savvy talent. According to a Korn Ferry study, 2030: The Very Human Future Of Work, the U.S. could lose out on $162 billion worth of revenues annually unless it finds more high-tech workers. At the same time, The Great Resignation is driving more workers to freelance, and with a high demand for freelance specialists, the price for this talent is ever-increasing. So how can you address your talent shortages? Join your peers to share creative solutions and new approaches that go beyond salary increases, flex work and vacation benefits to address talent sourcing. We’ll help you rethink recruitment, reskilling/upskilling employees, automation and untraditional approaches to talent acquisition
