We’re in a new era of collaboration where strategic business goals are accomplished by full-time, part-time and flexible workers who operate within communities with the same purpose: to achieve extraordinary results while having meaningful experiences at work.

Well, that’s optimistic.

It’s a transformative period, for sure. Leaders can navigate this change by being hyper-focused on people engagement strategies and by creating transparent, ethical and inclusive communities where all workers feel engaged and are prepared for the imminent changes to the workplace.

That’s easier said than done, which is why I’m attending SAP’s SAPPHIRE NOW conference in Orlando on May 6-9, 2019.

This year, SAPPHIRE redesigned its conference experience around “neighborhoods.” Neighborhoods bring people together, create a sense of community and provide a shared experience that supports growth and enrich lives.

I am excited to take part in the People Engagement neighborhood and have conversations about how technology enhances the employee experience. We’ll cover topics such as working in a socially connected world, demographic shifts, and emerging business models. All of it calls for a flexible workforce with new and different skills. Empowering this workforce and capitalizing on the diversity of thought and experience is key to ensuring people are engaged in their work.

Some of the sessions I look forward to the most are: Empower Your Leaders to Improve Every Workforce Experience, Combine Finance and HR to Improve Decision-Making and Performance, Give Your Employees a Completely New Human Resources Experience.

I’m also thrilled to meet the talented team behind Coach, Kate Spade, and Stuart Weitzman and learn how they are transforming luxury retail with a business strategy that is founded on innovation and inclusion.

You know I’m passionate about fixing work.

The verdict is in, and organizations see a positive impact on revenue and profitability when they combine technology and best practices to empower all workers and create an inclusive environment. So, join me in real life in Orlando on May 6-9, 2019, or find it live online. And I’ll share the good stuff from behind-the-scenes in the neighborhoods and the greater Orlando area on my Twitter account.

Not a bad way to stay on top of what’s happening in the future of work.
