HR Redefined is less than a month away, and we hope you’re as excited as we are! Whether or not you attended last year’s inaugural HR Redefined conference, this year is one not to miss. We have a variety of surprises up our sleeve, but to get the excitement brewing, here are five things we’re looking forward to at this year’s HR Redefined:
1. Adam Grant Takes the Stage
Organizational psychologist and New York Times best-selling author Adam Grant will keynote the HR Redefined conference. With his wealth of management expertise, Adam Grant is well positioned to inspire today’s HR leaders. His extensive research on building strong collaborative communities and supporting a more original workforce will help you inspire employees to do their best work.
2. Spotlight on Data
In response to the overwhelming success of last year’s HR data session, this year we dedicated an entire track to the “Analyze” function of HR. Namely’s own Manager of People Analytics, Eric Knudsen, will return to the stage to delve into the Quality of Hire metric, providing actionable insights to help you make smarter hiring decisions. The Analyze track will be jam-packed with information on how to quantify difficult-to-measure initiatives, like culture and employee engagement.
3. Redefine Live Hackathon
Conferences should be more than just listening to presentations. We want every attendee to walk away with new connections, ideas, and strategies to implement in their own companies. Last year, clients teamed up with Namely engineers in our third hackathon to help build innovative solutions for the Namely product.
This year, attendees will hack solutions to top HR challenges in our Redefine Live hackathon. With help from a Sayge coach and Namely advisor, teams will create innovative solutions to real world HR problems (and the winners will take home some great prizes)!
4. Exclusive Product Sneak Peek
Wondering what Namely’s product team has in store for the rest of 2018? We’ve got just the session for you! Namely’s VP of Product, Bryan Tsao, and Chief Client Officer, Debra Squyres, team up to share a sneak peek at some of the most exciting upcoming product features. Whether or not you use Namely in your own company, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to see what the future holds for HR technology.
5. Work Hard, Play Hard
After a full day of learning and innovating, it’s time to come together and celebrate. Join us Thursday evening at STK Downtown for food, drinks, networking, and amazing rooftop views of the Big Apple. We can’t wait to toast to HR Redefined 2018 with you!
