Leading in the Experience Age: An Executive’s Guide to the New Workforce Paradigm

Thursday 9:15 – 10:15 AM

Session Description

Our workforce has entered the Experience Age. Our employees now expect work to help them grow as people and they are no longer focused on information anymore. The lines between work, play and personal growth are blurred.

In the Experience Age, Organizations must know how to attract, motivate and retain talent that helps people grow and experience more of who they are. Successful Organizations in this age build People Strategies that are compatible with Growth Strategies, making rapid growth smooth and sustainable.

Organizations still using “churn and burn” Information Age tactics to hire and motivate employees will experience a talent shortage, and the hallmark “people problems” that prevent them from breaking through their revenue ceiling, causing negative growth.

This seminar will help you begin to discover the wealth of talent right before your eyes, when you move your People Strategy into the Experience Age.

At the end of the session, you will be able to:

  • Attract the best and brightest talent
  • Compensate and reward in a way that fits with who your employees are and what they really want
  • Create and sustain a culture that encourages people to show up as their best selves
  • Succession plan to always have an abundance of highly skilled and specialized talent
  • Become the workplace that no one wants to leave

It’s time to re-think your business processes, in order to support the experience you need to deliver for smooth, sustainable success.
