About the session
Personalising the employee experience: How the future of HR is shifting focus from “employees” to individuals and the “whole person”
In an era of increasing consumerism, employees are behaving more like customers looking for value. With this change comes a demand for organisations to translate their Employee Value Proposition (EVP) into an Individual Value Proposition (IVP).
This presentation will examine how the employee landscape is changing, and why HR needs to change with it. Join Cassandra in exploring the workforce trends driving changes to the expectations of employees, the role of organisational leadership and the future model of HR where each employee is viewed as the “whole person” rather than just another employee.
