General Session Keynote: Crossing the Chasm: The Bridge of Engagement

Speaker: Joe Wilson, CTO North America, Workday

Description: Today's market is saturated with buzzwords like Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning which have become terms de jure, but what's really needed to achieve reliable prediction in business? Joe Wilson, Chief Technology Officer - North America at Workday, argues that engagement is a requirement to bridge from outdated system of record to aspirational systems of intelligence.  By participating in this session, you'll "cross the chasm" between truths we accept within the consumer space and will gain insight into what truly matters in achieving automation across the business space.

Takeaways:

  • User engagement is a must, not only in the consumer space, but also within business applications.
  • To increase engagement, align your strategy to “customer” priorities with an outside-in perspective.
  • As a customer-centric CIO, you’ll have a better chance of knowing what your customers want/need.
  • Technology by itself cannot solve for transformative engagement.  Think business, then technology.

General Session Presentation: Real-Time Retention: Using Smart Benefits Technology to Engage and Support Employees All Year Long

Speaker: Jeffrey Oldham, Senior Vice President, BenefitsPlace™ Distribution, Benefitfocus

Description: Life happens every day. From purchasing a new car to becoming caregiver for an aging parent, your employees’ needs can change in an instant. So why limit their opportunity to address those needs to once a year? As companies evolve their benefit programs to be more comprehensive and competitive, the way in which they engage employees around these offerings should evolve, too. In this session, you’ll learn how AI-backed technology is helping employers move beyond the annual, typically-two-week-long open enrollment period to develop a year-round approach to engaging and supporting employees as their lives continually unfold.
