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
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.

Presentation: Practical workforce strategies that put your people first
• Understanding the three deeply connected dimensions of an organisation during unprecedented times: work (the what),workforce (the who) , and workplace (the where).
• Learn how COVID-19 may fundamentally challenge your culture, how you distribute work and deploy your workforce, and how you engage your people to present an opportunity to think about how you elevate communications, create a more resilient workforce, and build more focus on health and well-being.
Panel: Navigating the new normal: Addressing employee experience
• Recognising the importance of human connection and finding ways to facilitate continued collaboration and social interaction.

Presentation: The unprecedented role of technology in overcoming today’s challenges
