Please plan to join us for the CAHRS Fall Partner Meeting "Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of CAHRS by Looking at the Future of HR" to be held on the campus of Cornell University in Ithaca, New York on Wednesday, October 11th for a kick-off reception and meeting to follow on Thursday, October 12th.

Over the last 30 years, CAHRS’ Faculty and Partner companies have seen massive changes in the world of work, global competition, sophistication of HR practices, and the structure and status of the HR function.  The purpose of this CAHRS Partner Meeting will be to discuss a range of the macro factors that will impact the future of work, how these forces will create new pressures and challenges for the HR function, and how the HR function can start to get ahead of these trends.  Topics covered include the impact of cognitive computing on the HR function, new directions in learning and development, emerging directions in shared services, design thinking and the employee experience, driving organizational innovation, and closing the gender pay gap.  Participants will be privy to information shared by Leaders from CAHRS partner companies and Cornell’s Faculty experts.

Who Should Attend?

This CAHRS Partner Meeting is intended to provide an overview of macro trends that will critically affect the workplace of the future and will provide real-life examples of how their HR functions are looking to adapt and get in front of these trends. This meeting is ideal for Senior HR Leaders and HR Business Partners/Generalists who are looking to better understand these trends and implications for work, work design, and changes to the HR function.  This meeting is also ideal for Leaders from HR Centers of Excellence (e.g. Talent Management, Diversity and Inclusion) who are looking to develop best practices in managing new generations, global talent, and create an inclusive workplace that will help to attract and retain the workforce of the future.
