    Presentation: The impact of the gig economy on the future of work

     

    The growth of the gig economy, and recent fundamental changes to working culture due to COVID-19, has changed the conversation within organizations and is shining a new light on human resource practices. Gig workers have long been used by businesses in roles requiring flexibility and at the mercy of project demand/supply, but typically fall outside the companies’ HR strategy — driving performance and impacting the budget, yet not managed or tracked in a consistent fashion. Simultaneously, the broad acceptance of gig work is changing how all kinds of workers look at the world of work.

    • Learn how tapping into this extended workforce can improve scale and agility
    • Review the challenges related to tracking the lifecycle of this extended workforce
    • Understand the factors causing companies to revaluate their workforce

    12:50 PM

    Panel: Overcoming communication overload in the age of digital transformation

     

    Employees today face a similar information overload, made exponentially worse by the COVID-19 pandemic. During this panel find out how key leaders combat the information overload, ensure critical messages get through, and drive the desired employee behaviour, through clearer, more effective communications such as:
    • How to create relevant, targeted messages.
    • The role of being clear and transparent in your call to action
    • How to create communication experiences instead of just individual messages.
    • How to cut through the noise to measure impact and performance and adjust as needed based on hard data.
