    Ready for Realignment: The Employee Experience, HR and the New Age of Work

    Guest:
    Ravin Jesuthasan, futurist, author and human capital thought leader
    With competition in the labor market at an all-time high, it’s essential that an organization’s culture attracts and retains in-demand talent to achieve and maintain success. Therefore, HR must innovate, evolve and reinvent its processes to create an experience that meets the demand of today’s employees.

    requirements of HR HR’s evolving role in enhancing the employer brand and overall employee experience the importance of leveraging new HR technology to enhance workflow and streamline processes To learn more about how the right HR tech can enable HR to reinvent its purpose within an organization, read our blog post, “Conquering Turnover Through Effective HR Tech.”
