Sessions at the halfway point of the virtual HR Technology Conference & Exposition will start off with a bang, as HRE columnist and Leapgen CEO Jason Averbook takes attendees into a deep dive about how the COVID-19 pandemic has changed HR’s mindset–from focusing on the future of work to the now of work.

While coronavirus has come with quite a few challenges, it has also provided HR with an opportunity for a digital reset, and it is accelerating a workplace digital revolution. Averbook will explore how HR leaders can embrace the potential of these opportunities.

New York Times bestselling author and business consultant Marcus Buckingham will also highlight the results of two large, global surveys on the state of resilience and engagement in the workplace, which he conducted with his team at the ADP Research Institute.
