High Performance HR Track

Six elective tracks, six critical areas of interest for HR - many choices to learn.


This track will be dedicated to exploring the practices and lessons that high-performing HR organizations can provide. As HR evolves, there are a certain number of organizations who have begun to leverage HR’s new competencies to create high-performing teams. Some of the topics we’ll discuss in this track include how HR can drive the new workforce agenda, aligning culture, performance, leading the digital transformation of the organization, and build the networks within the organization to effectively drive positive relationships. Ultimately, an HR organization that puts people first, embraces digital, leverages technologies to drive evidence-based decision making, and leads by example will set a foundation for a high-performing company.
