Chris Dwyer Webinar

Neha Goel joins Chris Dwyer in an engaging conversation about Chris' research study.

While the COVID-19 pandemic brought unbridled disruption and chaos to businesses, the truth is that the “Future of Work” was already on tap to accelerate how enterprises ultimately optimized their workforce. The continued growth of the “extended workforce,” which now accounts for 47% of the average company’s total talent, is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to how much talent and work are being reimagined in the face of unprecedented global change.  

In this webinar, Chris Dwyer, SVP of Research at Ardent Partners and managing director of the Future of Work Exchange, discusses the results of his research study, unveiling the five key strategies every HR executive must have on their 2022 agenda. This includes innovations in workforce management, the extended workforce,  focus on the talent experience, and empathy-led leadership. He also discuss how HR executives can navigate vaccine mandates, retention,  and how to incorporate strategies to ensure a thriving extended workforce program in 2022 and beyond. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Recalibrating the Future of Work's impact on HR
  • Reimagining "HR Psychology"
  • Elevating the approaches to extended workforce management
  • Blending HR's expertise with emerging technology
  • Navigating an evolving talent landscape
