Keynote | The New Intelligence for the Human Age
COVID-19 is spreading exponentially, workforces have been sent home, physical distancing and self-isolation are the new norm and school's out. Welcome to the reality of being a professional in 2020. Partner this complexity with a workforce that was already feeling burnt out, anxious and humanly disconnected and you have the platform for a perfect storm.

Whilst the immediate priority is focused on flattening the curve, the long-term critical priority is maintaining the mental health of our society so that those who survive have the ability to thrive. We find ourselves at a forced moment of inflection. Mother nature has sent us to our metaphoric rooms and given us time out – time out to rethink the future of humanity and the role we have in shaping it.

Welcome to the human age! A place where those who put humans first and prioritise the mental health of their employees will reap the rewards long term. But how? It’s time to cultivate a new intelligence – an intelligence that enables humans to cease reacting and start intentionally adapting.

This interactive learning experience will explore:

• What it means to be human and why it matters more than ever
• How to cultivate positive human connection experiences whilst working virtually
• A framework for amplifying the human skills required to support intentional adaptation and basic wellbeing

2020 has been one tough year. Now, leaders in education are not only tasked with trying to stabilise how they operate during the pandemic, but they also know that in whatever form they seek to rebuild their organisation’s culture, it must be with a committed effort towards diversity, inclusion and equality.

It shouldn’t take social movements like #MeToo or #BlackLivesMatter to awaken a collective consciousness around long-standing systemic biases. René will share, through contemporary stories, how some progressive leaders are going about driving the transformation of their cultures to be more caring and more inclusive in a pragmatic and practical manner.

Digital Workplace and Organisation Design
An organisation’s digital workplace has an increasing impact on employees’ experience, performance and productivity and yet is an area of people technology in which HR often has little role. It is therefore useful to understand how the digital workplace integrates with more common aspects of HR’s work, and in particular, our responsibilities for effective organisation design. The digital workplace needs to be deeply integrated with other organisational enablers if its full potential impact is to be achieved. Digital tools and ways of working change the organisation and its culture, enabling people to work in projects, communities and networks, and can reduce the need for hierarchical structures and approaches.

But in its turn, the organisation deeply influences the way and the extent to which people respond to digital transformation. A key requirement is to define the most important type of organisational group or network, so that the digital workplace can deliver a quality experience to these, as well as to individual employees and contingent workers. This session will suggest that businesses need to approach digital projects as organisation design. Doing this starts with articulating the required digital capabilities and desired cultural outcomes and using these to guide changes in the organisation structure, people, leadership, processes, technologies and other enablers. The approach means that HR needs to work closely alongside IT and digital and leads to a more effective workplace and higher levels of performance.

3 key learnings for this session include:

1. Align the digital workplace with business and employee needs
2. Gain insights into modern organisation design and the way these can support decisions on people technology
3. Understand the role of different groups and networks in organisational effectiveness and the consequences for the digital workplace

Ultimate Customer Conversations: From Challenge to Change
Customer conversations are core business for UBank Customer Contact Centre Advisors. It’s why they’re here and what they do – dozens of times each shift, via multiple channels, supporting multiple products. Advisors are at the forefront of UBank’s mission to Deliver the Ultimate CX.

Previous attempts to embed customer conversation standards haven’t been successful as our CX was inconsistent. Together, L&D and Contact Centre Colleagues drew on lessons learned and applied design thinking principles to develop a holistic framework and approach to enable Ultimate Customer Conversations (UCC).

After starting with the “why”, we defined what ultimate means in the context of customer conversations. Next, we developed the “how”: initial learning and development > on the job enablement > actionable insights for continuous improvement. UCC creates conditions for success through an ecosystem of people, process, tools and data. Today, UCC is how we work, and it works for our customers (improved customer conversation efficiency and effectiveness) and our colleagues (improved colleague engagement, relationships and wellness).

3 key learnings for this session include:

1. Simple and obvious may be exactly what’s needed
2. Context, connection, consistency and clarity are more powerful value drivers than the shiniest “toys”
3. Metrics matter – don’t be scared!

When Tried and Tested Isn’t Enough to Change Old Ways
The current approach to remuneration management is not providing the desired workforce agility or supporting a performance driven culture. The old evaluation methodology mapped to pay is broken and doesn’t support the business.

The big shift to developed frameworks with the intent to align with the existing reward strategy and support. We engaged the business and developed a simplified, fit-for-purpose and flexible remuneration framework. To do this, we had to break through the challenges to change in a change resistant environment. To finish it off, this framework helps drive the culture of the business and provides an improved employee experience when it comes to remuneration.

3 key learnings for this session include:

1. How to shift something big
2. Making a change applicable to your business
3. Removing barriers to influence change
