HR managers and the challenges of digital transformation Written by Alexandre Keilmann on April 28th, 2016

From the recruitment of new talents and their retention, to the enhancement of the engagement of employees, digital has changed the way HR managers operate. Yet, they are facing more and more challenges when it comes to finding the correct tools, but also when it comes to data privacy. Aware of it, HR managers are now redefining their industry and have shifted the focus of debate to what really matters: culture, leadership, motivation, and much more. International and local experts will exchange on the changing landscape of Human Resources on May 11 during the ‘Great HR Mutation” conference.

 

“There is nothing more Human than digital transformation”

Culture, collaboration and leadership are, according to Benedikt Benenati, from Renault Group, the key enabler of digital transformation for any company. The VP Digital Communications has been working on building a strong culture within the French company, and towards boosting the engagement of employees and leaders. They are now facing the challenging transformation of Human Resources through workshops, activities and by sharing their experiences, focusing on human relations rather than on tools, to drive digital transformation.

 

Shaping the leaders of tomorrow

In today’s world we are bombarded by messages, triggers and brands that are trying to get our attention, inspire us to act and create in us the passion to take action. In organizations that are internet-based and often spread around the world, it can be easy for companies to paint a picture of themselves to their employees, to build the structures of a strong company, and yet to fail to inspire. Space tycoon Rick Tumlinson (Co-Founder, Deep Space Industries) therefore focusses on motivation and engagement to help his teams develop and grow. He will share his best practices with the audience of the “Great HR Mutation” conference through a presentation entitled “How to create passion for your mission”.

 

With the new generations about to face the new challenges brought by digital and Space innovation, leaders are needed in all industries. Delivering the right message, inspiring your teams, and driving business are just some of the results that can be achieved with the guidance of a strong leader. Pr. Chris Welch from the International Space University will tackle the topic of leadership through his space and teaching experiences, with the aim of educating and inspiring talents to address humanity’s future challenges.

 

Also with the participation of Karl Burns (Head of HR Luxembourg Global HRBP for Supply Chain, Vodafone), Romain Mannelli (Executive Vice President Human Resources, RTL Group), Mike Halsall (Founder Global Grand Challenges UK, Singularity University) and Eric Barilland (Director, Employer Branding and Campus Management, Orange).
