The modern workforce is in the middle of one of its biggest shifts since the industrial revolution. Businesses have encountered the rise of global talent pools and entirely new sets of jobs and skills needed to grow. Now, they need to completely rethink how they source, train, equip, motivate, and reward workers. In this session, we explore strategies, systems and tools around building the ‘human enterprise” in this decade. Global VC firm General Catalyst reveals the technology innovation needed to create successful and enduring businesses that promote thriving cultures in the new global, remote working world.

They will explore a world in which the Chief Human Resource Officer is becoming the new Chief Growth Officer and talent retention is as critical as customer retention. A whole new era of innovation around workforce transformation is just beginning. We’ll explore what work in the human enterprise looks like in 2030. Talent Has Changed Forever. Attendees will take away a playbook to build and retain tomorrow’s distributed workforce.
