    Talking the needs of technology in the now of work with Steven Hunt - Digital Meetup Series

    Talking the needs of technology in the now of work with Steven Hunt - Digital Meetup Series

    There's so much talk about building future ready organizations, but how do we know what the future looks like and build for it with intention? Understanding how we work, how work is changing, and how it can be designed is both a study in technology and in human psychology. 

    Technology enhances AND limits our imagination when it comes to imagining how organizations can enable human performance. Humans, on the other hand, are the most resilient and adaptable organizational resources you have. People can literally change faster than technology, but their core human truths aren't as trendy as you think.

    The big question is: Do people NEED technology to perform, or does it get in the way? How does technology become a human performance multiplier? 

    Steve Hunt is an avid student of the history of work, the role of technology, and the interplay of human psyche. If anyone can connect the dots, he can. We waited patiently for his book launch to bring him to you, and here we are!

    We welcomed Steve Hunt, PhD, Chief Expert of Technology and Work at SAP, and author of just-published Talent Tectonics to our Now of Work Community. Take a listen!

    The Importance of a Talent Strategy with Jerome Ternynck - Digital Meetup Series

    The Importance of a Talent Strategy with Jerome Ternynck - Digital Meetup Series

    How do we humanize work in this historic labor market? We can start by rethinking how we work, where we work, and how valuable of a role talent plays in all of it. 


    We had the pleasure of chatting with Jerome Ternynck, CEO of SmartRecruiters, a company that is leading the charge on remote work, recruiting, and hiring. SmartRecruiters is one of the first companies to announce that they'd go remote first—forever. We dug into what Jerome and his team have learned from that business decision and how it's helping them shape remote hiring best practices inside of the world’s largest enterprises.

    We also had a chance to dive into his values, entrepreneurship, today's talent market and why you need a talent strategy, along with the role of technology in achieving it.
