Opening keynote today was friend of the show China Gorman. Fantastic overview of what is happening in the business and HR world. Things like:
- 9.2% unemployment rate, but 52% of employers can’t find people to fill their jobs.
- HR leaders in the room are smart, know business, know the world, and have access to their CEO.
- HR is like a busted flash mob. They know all the moves, but they may not be in time with the other leaders.
Great session, a lot of metrics and data in our discussions. She is the kind of leader we need in HR, and I am proud to know her.
By the way, no discussions of tables were allowed.
