2020 Virtual HR Innovation & Tech Fest – “You Don’t See Squirrels Building Elevators”
The 2020 Virtual HR Innovation & Tech Fest celebrating talent, technology, and ideas was certainly off the beaten track as far as large-scale national events go with everyone involved participating from their loungerooms. However, as sponsors, we were excited to hear how the speakers and audience had used the COVID pandemic as the unlikely accelerant to innovation and embracing technology. A key insight unique to this year’s conference is how COVID is the accelerant to the innovation and adoption of technology not to replace human resources, but as a tool to improve employee engagement, customer experience, and business outcomes. Here are a few of the sessions from the 2020 Virtual HR Innovation & Tech Fest that we found most inspiring.
