UNLEASH World Conference & Expo is back. On 23-24 of October over 5,000 leaders from the best HR technology providers, big brands, start-ups, and influencers from around the world will come together to give industry professional/attendees a first look at the newest products and solutions on the market. This year the extensive list of keynote speakers offers a diverse variety of expertise and thought leadership. I’m particularly excited to hear what Matthieu Ricard and Carolanne Minashi can teach us about building a future workforce that is inclusive and compassionate.
Those of us who have attended UNLEASH events in the past have high expectations of the calibre of the presenter and the topics under discussion. This year does not disappoint as it covers everything of interest to an HR professional. Want to learn more about employee engagement, keep your finger on the pulse of the evolving technology, or discover how other HR departments have successfully implemented projects within their organisation? It’s all here. There’s a reason UNLEASH attracts the world’s largest gathering of HR leaders and is simply a must-attend conference for anyone working in HR or an HR-related field.
This year, SumTotal Systems is an Emerald Sponsor of the event. We are hosting sessions throughout the event and are also conducting several demo sessions so be sure to drop by stand 103. From 3 pm each day we’ll also be serving cocktails, so swing by and allow my colleagues and I to show you how SumTotal satisfies all your HR needs.
- Reimagined talent acquisition
SumTotal has reimagined our approach to Talent Acquisition and now offers seamless integration with the rest of the SumTotal platform, including Mobile Recruiting and Continuous Onboarding.
- Immersive learning experience
Discover the ways SumTotal’s new learner experience combines mobile, social and gamification to engage and immerse learners.
- Reducing compliance risk
Learning management systems check that employees are properly trained and certified while workforce management systems schedule employees. But what if the two systems worked together to ensure that the employees scheduled have the appropriate training and certifications for those jobs? SumTotal bridges this gap and enables organisations to guarantee that employees are trained and certified for the tasks they perform.
- Lifecycle career development
Moving from point-in-time development to a continuous, unified approach to training, development and career planning takes your organisation to the next level. SumTotal can track an employee’s lifecycle from initial onboarding to career development opportunities, with machine learning that can recommend and match jobs as well as prescribe a development plan.
SumTotal is also hosting two sessions at the event!
On Day 1 Morné Swart, SumTotal’s VP, global product strategy & transformation is presenting Talent Agility in an Emerging Workplace. Morné will talk about the current challenges facing HR including the millennial effect and the major shifts in how work is performed, evaluated and rewarded and what SumTotal are doing to assist organisations with these changes. Morné will also discuss how SumTotal Talent Management is driving the success of the talent development process.
On Day 2 Torsten Schuhardt, head of learning & development at Danisches Bettenlager GmbH, a SumTotal customer, is presenting 20 Years later – the awakening to the Digital Age. Torsten has more than 15 years of experience in learning and development and over this time has amassed a wealth of knowledge and insight into organisational best practice. He will discuss how to wake up, shake up and convert a successful retail chain for modern living to the digital age of learning and development.
