Executive Track Session
Horizon Scanning: A Powerful Tool for Setting Business Direction in an Unpredictable Environment. Could we have predicted what 2020 was going to look like with any degree of certainty? Probably not. Could we have seen changes coming sooner? Likely so. Could we have been better prepared? Definitely. As senior HR professionals, being able to lead business conversations around chaos, resilience, and sustainability is more important now than ever. Horizon scanning is a powerful process of seeing around corners and paying attention to early signs of coming change—not in an effort to predict the future, but as a tool to more quickly adjust business direction and strategy.
Breakout session will also include speakers from Hawaii Pacific Health, Central Pacific Bank, Kumabe HR, Kamehameha School, People Strategies Hawaii, Kaiser Permanente, Happiness U, and more! Don’t miss out on the first ever virtual State Conference. Register before Friday, July 31st to get the best conference rates. Hope to see you there!
