(Wednesday 3pm, Columbus H)

Of course employee engagement excites us – we spend most of our time at HROnboard developing new ways to excite and engage employees before Day 1!

This talk should be particularly exciting as it’s being co-hosted by WeSpire‘s Sarah Finnie Robinson, who knows a thing or two about using cool software to engage employees. Definitely a big one to watch out for.

Another topic close to our hearts – after all, employer branding affects recruitment, employee onboarding and really every step of the employee lifecycle.

If you don’t already have a defined employer branding strategy, now’s your chance to join the conversation and get started.


AcceloWinning the Complexity Battle: Machine Learning in HR

 (Thursday 11:45, Columbus H)

Yeah, you already know we love automation, but that’s not the only reason why this topic is so exciting to us.

We’re also techies, and machine learning and AI is always something on our minds. While still a relatively young facet of HR, it’s going to be big in all aspects of our lives, both within and outside work, so the sooner you get involved the better.
