The World of Digital Transformation in HR is Upon Us
and The Time Is Now!


Digital Transformation is more than technology. It is a mindset. It is a vision. It is a mission and most importantly, it requires a LEAP to the future. As the world continues to change at exponential paces compared to the past; we must all be ready to take this LEAP forward and be as ready as possible for the future of work.

Taking this LEAP requires many things. First of all, an understanding of what a LEAP is:

  • Love – We must love what we do in being on a mission to change the world of work today
  • Energy – By loving what we do, it gives us energy to think differently, focus on the right things and take action
  • Audacity - By having energy, we can accomplish the audacious, the achievement of readying our organizations for the future of work today and into the future
  • Proof - And by doing the audacious, we can finally prove the value of our actions and continue to design and innovate into the future

We live in a world today where topics such as constant (and contentious) changes in regulations; the use of data to drive prescription and disruption and workforce engagement and productivity are some of the hottest topics. To deal with this change requires a different kind of thinking and a true belief that digital disruption is upon us now and the only way to compete for the future worker is to be ahead of the curve.

Join Jason Averbook, world renowned thought leader, consultant, analyst and keynote speaker as he addresses PIHRA South Orange County on topics such as:

  • The importance of Design Thinking in the world of HR and HR programmatic deployments today
  • Why data is the new capital and how we can capitalize on this new normal
  • How digital disruption is not just technology, but a holistic approach and comprehensive mindset of how people, processes and technologies interact together
  • Why workforce engagement and productivity is more important than ever
  • How consumerization and personalization move beyond buzzwords in 2017
  • The role of strategy and alignment in all things HR going forward
  • The new skills required to run a HR function today

Jason’s talk will be motivational, action oriented and leave you with a sense of purpose, excitement and a true understanding of what our clients are dealing with today.
