Are You Ready for the Future of Human Resources?
We are entering an era where Talent Platforms make it possible to deconstruct work and disperse it to free agents in ways unimaginable just a few years ago. How are your company’s Human Resources functions impacted and how do you lead, and build future leaders, in this disrupted workforce future?
Join us to hear David Creelman, co-author of Lead the work: Navigating A World Beyond Employment, share his insights on the future of work, and Professor Catherine Connelly will present on the unfortunate phenomenon of knowledge hiding in the workplace. In her interactive session we will talk about three types of knowledge hiding:
- Why knowledge hiding is a real problem
- Why people hide knowledge (and why some people don't)
- What can organizations and managers do differently, and what to do if you notice that people are hiding knowledge from you
How can you disperse work if knowledge is hiding?
If you are a Senior Human Resource Professional, Human Resources Manager, or CEO/COO in a knowledgeworker industry, then this Breakthrough HR event the place to learn, meet, think, and grow.

"Traditionally, society forces us to choose between working at home for ourselves or working at an office for a company. If we work at a traditional 9 to 5 company job, (the employer provides) community and structure, but lose freedom and the ability to control our own lives. If we work for ourselves at home, we gain independence but suffer loneliness and bad habits from not being surrounded by a work community. Coworking is a solution to this problem." - Brad Neuberg, first person to use the term "Coworking" and founder of first coworking space (The Spiral Muse in San Fransisco).
