4.00 - 5.00: GIG ECONOMY ON THE RISE: KEY TAKE-AWAYS FOR HR!

David McWilliams

Prof David McWilliams, Economist, Broadcaster and Author
School of Business Trinity College Dublin
 
One of the most recent changes affecting our workplaces is the ‘gig economy’, a work context comprised primarily of short-term independent workers. Professor David McWilliams will tell us what exactly it is we’re being warned about, and what it really means for HR.

Being a CHRO in 2030
Arne Van Damme, COO Intuo
There are 4 trends that are threatening HR’s relevance today. I've labelled them: "The API and the way it's dividing our workforce", "The end of determinism", "The battle for your employee's time" and "The rise of psychology gurus and entrepreneurship porn". We'll look at what they entail and how we can overcome them. In doing so, we'll find out what the future CHRO responsibilities will look like. Either HR is going to become a vital source of competitive advantage, or HR will be made obsolete. Which it is, is up to you.

Bio
Arne is an HR Futurist, HR Tech COO and general HR Speaker. As a computer scientist, I learned a lot about the digital & agile world. Every day, I try to apply those principles to HR. As COO of intuo, I’ve helped 100+ companies make the transition to more data-driven & agile HR. I talk about how HR can transform itself and how good leadership works in the digital age.
