Dr. Kirsten Hanson, Senior Director & Head, Global Organization & Talent Development, Oracle
With the complexity of a more global workforce, today’s leaders must sustain business performance in a vastly different environment than generations before. Forward thinking HR leaders recognize the opportunity to impact business performance with a shift in key strategies and by leveraging new technologies to meet their needs in ways unimaginable before now. The ability to locate, source, attract, and recruit the right talent will differentiate companies in 2013. With the rapid rate in which business strategies and operating models are being forced to adapt and change in order to stay competitive, it’s imperative that the technology behind the organization is able to keep up. However, new research shows that the average age of a core HR system is nearly seven years old, meanwhile a flurry of new candidate relationship management, social sourcing, social learning, and employee assessment platforms are being launched in 2013 creating a perfect time to select and implement new systems.
This session will share how organizations can work towards integrating the management of their talent, analytics, and intelligence, and organizational effectiveness in order to transform and optimize their business. It will discuss how the ever-changing global landscape, business strategies, and technology must work together in order for companies to work quickly, cost effectively, and remain competitive.
