The last 18 months have been a roller coaster ride in adjusting and responding to external factors that impacted not only our business processes but also our talent management & employee experience strategies.

Join us as we hear from an experienced panel of C-Suite Executive and their CHRO partners as they reflect on these events and how they are incorporating the lessons they learned to address challenges, enhance the employee experience and drive their businesses forward.

In this session, we will discuss:

• What worked for these leaders to address the biggest challenges they faced in their businesses

• How their thinking evolved from making temporary shifts to reinventing a “new normal”

• How are they preparing their business and their employees for future

Join us in this interactive session as we engage with these Executive partnerships who will share their wisdom and experience and create an opportunity for you to share yours!
