"I'm looking forward to discussing the emerging technology trends that are shaping the workplace of the future," said Shalowitz. "Enterprise gamification is playing an increasingly central role in motivating staff and building long-term employee and customer relationships, as is employee reputation management. The 2020 Workplace Network conference is an ideal venue to learn about new solutions and compare notes with HR thought leaders who are creating tomorrow's workplace today."

"Our use of an HR Hackathon is a game changer in how we provide new hires with a voice to suggest their ideas on how to become engaged in the workplace," says Pat Wadors, CHRO of LinkedIn.

"LinkedIn's use of the Hackathon concept in Human Resources shows the power of being open to new ways of working and learning, says Jeanne Meister. "To compete for the best talent and win, companies have to continuously re-think and re-imagine the way they recruit, develop and engage talent. I'm excited to interact with so many senior HR professionals as they share the challenges and solutions they are encountering while managing a shifting workplace landscape," observes Meister.
