We know how much there is to do and see at OpenWorld, and in the craze of it all one of the best features during this multi-day conference is the separate track and series designed especially for HCM customers, called HCM Central @OpenWorld.

The conversation around Modern HR and HCM in the Cloud is expansive so this year at HCM Central you’ll hear directly from thought leaders in the HR Industry on what’s really disrupting day-to-day HR and the rewards companies are reaping from the disruption. Here’s what you can look forward to from our keynote presenters:  

First Keynote: HCM and the Digital Workforce

  • Christopher Leone, Senior Vice President, Applications Development, Oracle

The digital workforce is 24/7 and global – all business teams are experiencing the shift and the pain points represent a greater opportunity for HR. The opportunity to transition from antiquated HR operations to Modern HR where employee engagement is top of mind and it all starts with progressive capabilities that take into account social collaboration, mobile responsiveness, and dynamic delivery.

Companies with a perception that a fierce product alone will keep your workforce motivated and excited will lose high-quality talent to their competition.

Chris Leone, SVP of Oracle HCM will share the latest innovations designed for HCM and the digital workforce. It’s a fun filled hour of bells and whistles you don’t want to miss.
