With talent taking on more strategic importance at successful enterprises than ever before, human resources (HR) leaders must help their organizations create a vision of the future. Oracle can help: Oracle HCM World, the HR event of the year, features presentations by industry leaders and creates networking opportunities to give HR professionals the insights they need to guide modern human capital management (HCM) organizations.
Oracle President Mark Hurd will deliver a keynote address at the inaugural Oracle HCM World, which runs from February 4 to 6, 2014, at the Venetian Resort, Hotel, and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In addition to Mark Hurd's presentation on February 5, Dr. David Rock, a leadership coach who advises line-of-business managers around the world, discusses how his research on the human brain offers insights into the unique challenges faced by HR managers and what can make them more effective leaders. His latest book isYour Brain at Work, Strategies for Overcoming Distraction, Regaining Focus, and Working Smarter All Day Long.
The theme of this year's conference is Transforming Your HR Practice into Twenty-First Century HR. The show kicks off on February 4 with Cara Capretta and Bertrand Dussert, Oracle's vice presidents of HR Transformation, and continues with two days of keynotes, breakout sessions, an exhibition hall, hands-on labs, user-experience labs, and focus groups.
