Today’s post is a guest contribution from Kylene Zenk, industry fellow for manufacturing at UKG. It continues the UKG Workforce Institute’s new series, Industry Insights, featuring practical strategies for professionals in specific industries, written by subject-matter experts in those industries.
For the past four years, UKG has hosted a virtual and complimentary conference for working professionals called the Industry Insights Digital Summit, a half-day event filled with thought leadership, expert-led sessions, and networking opportunities. This year’s agenda will cover the critical trends and issues that are impacting organizations in various industries — from healthcare, manufacturing, and retail to government, financial services, and more. With 10 different sessions, there is something for everyone at the Industry Insights Digital Summit.
This year’s event is scheduled for September 14, and here are three key reasons you’ll want to attend:
1) Sessions: Actionable Ideas to Help You Now
In an exciting evolution of this event, the 2023 Industry Insights Digital Summit is being produced in partnership with the UKG Workforce Institute. In fact, the summit features several advisory board members, who will each share their actionable ideas to help you address common challenges.
Kicking off the event with the opening general session is Jessica Kriegel, chief scientist of workplace culture at Culture Partners, presenting “The Culture Equation™: How to Build an Intentional Workplace Culture That Powers Your Strategy and Drives Growth.”
Then, stick around for two breakout sessions: “Empower Your People with Data for Better Decision-Making and Performance,” with John Frehse, senior managing director at Ankura, and “Digital Transformation: One Health System’s Journey — Featuring Mercy,” led by Nanne Finis, RN MS, chief nurse executive at UKG.
Closing the event with the final general session will be Dr. Jarik Conrad, executive director of the UKG Workforce Institute and vice president of human insights at UKG.
2) Speed Networking: An Enhanced Virtual Experience
In the hybrid world of work, networking can sometimes be a challenge. That’s why this year’s Industry Insights Digital Summit features dedicated time for connecting with your peers, where you’ll have the opportunity to connect 1:1 via video chat with other event attendees. Share your thoughts on the day’s presentations as well as your best tips and strategies for navigating industry-specific challenges, or just get to know one another better between sessions.
3) Solution Spotlight: Employee-Centric HCM Technology
Based on feedback from past summits, we’ve added a new element to the agenda this year — Solution Spotlights, 20-minute sessions designed to educate attendees on some of the most impactful solutions being leveraged by UKG customers today. If you’d like to understand how UKG HCM technology can help create a differentiated employee experience, here’s a sneak peak of some can’t-miss Solution Spotlights: “Build a Culture of Belonging with UKG Talk,” “Help Your People Achieve Financial Wellness with UKG Wallet,” and “Gain Visibility and Create Trust with UKG Pro Pay and Workforce Management,” and more!
With inspiring keynotes, breakout sessions, speed networking, and solution spotlights, the 2023 UKG Industry Insights Digital Summit is sure to provide you with ideas and strategies to help your organization — and your people — thrive. Be sure to check out the complete agenda and register today.
We’ll see you on September 14!
