Thomas Otter and Jason Averbook

What you’ll learn:

  • What’s wrong with current HR processes for the extended workforce
  • Why ‘employee experience’ needs to become ‘people experience’
  • How HR can better support managers’ relationship with external workers
  • Why talent management leaders need new success metrics for the total workforce
