2018 HARRT at UCLA Annual Retreat – Human Resources: Now to Next

The theme of our 2018 Retreat was: Human Resources Innovation: Now to Next. Building on previous topics of transformation, disruption, and change; this year we explored specific ways to strategically move our organizations into the future. Our speakers brought the latest thinking on approaching innovation with an entrepreneurial mindset, applying technology for organizational innovation, keeping the “human” in human resources with empathy and compassion, the changing CHRO profile, and the next frontier of employee experience.
