PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., Feb. 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Human Resource Executive® HR Technology Conference & Exposition® today shared details of its upcoming, complimentary virtual event, taking place March 16-19, 2021.

Renowned industry analyst Josh Bersin will open the event on Tuesday, March 16, with the session “HR Technology 2021: Facilitating Big Changes in Work.” Bersin will discuss the changes organizations are experiencing in the pandemic’s wake and explain how the shift from HR tech to work tech may fundamentally alter technology strategies, implementation priorities and the market itself. Diversity, equity and inclusion expert Jackye Clayton will also speak that day, presenting “One Size Doesn’t Fit All: It’s Time to Change Diversity Recruiting.” Clayton will share why new tactics are needed to successfully scale these initiatives and what organizations can do to reach diversity goals and improve inclusion.

Mimi Brooks, CEO of Logical Design Solutions, will start off Wednesday, March 17, with “Building Sustainable, High-Performance Organizations of Tomorrow.” Exploring the second wave of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Brooks will consider its impact on organizations and their business models and provide a framework for navigating this volatile digital age and redefining the intention of human work.

On Thursday, March 18, Katy Tynan, principal analyst at Forrester, will present “Not All Leaders Are in the C-Suite.” While many organizations focus on the work of senior leaders, Tynan will examine the value of frontline managers, directors and team leaders and look at how employers can leverage data to strengthen this critical community and drive organizational resilience and adaptivity. That afternoon, Jason Averbook, co-founder and CEO of Leapgen, will deliver “Changing Work for Good: A Whole Person Approach to Digital Transformation.” Delving into the need for putting people first, Averbook will emphasize the importance of adopting a digital mindset to scale wellbeing and better serve humanity.

Friday, March 19, the final day of the conference, will see diversity strategist, author and tenured practitioner Torin Ellis take to the virtual stage for “It’s Time to Shift the Narrative. For Good.” Taking attendees on a vocal journey of empowerment, strategic exploration, and tactical execution, Ellis will illustrate how to attract, nurture, and retain dynamic talent and create safe and supportive workplaces.

Spring HR Technology Conference chair Jeanne Achille commented, “Throughout what turned out to be a redefining year for many organizations, it’s HR technology that helped hold teams together, develop new leaders and provide a path forward. We saw how an HR tech investment intended for one function could deliver numerous outcomes.
