It’s been just four years since I started at Workhuman®, and in looking back on my tenure here, I’m amazed at the profound changes I’ve seen in HR during such a brief time. 

Case in point: General Electric, the longtime champion of forced rankings under Jack Welch, sent shock waves through the HR arena a few years ago when it joined industry giants – including Adobe, Deloitte, Dell, Microsoft, IBM, Accenture, and PwC – in ditching the annual review. Today, is there anyone who disputes the wisdom and advantages of continuous performance management over a once-a-year manager/employee sitdown – a relic that some have traced to third century China?

That’s why I was thrilled to learn Workhuman is sponsoring what is sure to be an eye-opening SHRM webcast: Top 5 Trends for Savvy HR Leaders in 2020 – and Beyond,” hosted on Jan. 29 at 2 p.m. ET by Jen Reimert, vice president of solutions consulting at Workhuman. She’ll be joined by her Workhuman colleague, Dr. Andrea C. Johnson, senior director of global business systems.

Drawing on their combined decades in HR and the latest ground-breaking research, they will share their unique perspectives on how organizations will continue to build a more positive workplace experience for employees. As we enter the new decade, they’ll offer predictions and insights on what the next ten years will bring in the areas of pay equity, AI, D&I, and – yes – performance management. In one information-packed hour, they’ll look at

  • How technology and AI are shaping the future of work as they reveal insights into biases, mentorship, and employee turnover
  • Why traditional performance management is holding organizations hostage – and how to break its bonds
  • New ideas in the D&I conversation – from closing the pay gap to transforming companies into stewards of basic human rights

Andrea and Jen will also make some bold predictions on which “draconian” HR practices – like annual reviews – will be ditched in the coming years by progressive, forward-thinking organizations. And the icing on the cake? SHRM Certification has approved this webinar for one PDC toward SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP recertification.

Become an agent for change in your organization – now and in the future. Don’t miss this thought-provoking program on the hottest upcoming trends in HR. You’ll leave with the insights you need to demonstrate ROI and build a truly great workplace culture where employees can thrive and help your organization achieve its business goals.

The new decade is here and I can’t wait.
