RECHARGE HR - LEAD - November 12, 2015
It seems that everyone these days is saying that business is now "social." The rise of social media and other technology has changed how we do business. These same technologies are changing the very nature of work and how the workplace must be designed. The truth is, business has always been social, and so has work. Technology has simply unleashed the power of social in new and powerful ways.
This evolution has revealed that our traditional models for cultivating talent are insufficient. The new equation for talent isn't just about building human capital (the knowledge, skills, and abilities). It must also include social capital (the value that exists within relationships) if you are to unlock your organization's true capability for innovation and performance. This thought provoking and actionable session will reveal the new talent equation and how the next evolution for Human Resources is to become the social architect of the organization.
Jason Lauritsen has been described as “a corporate executive gone rogue.” For nearly a decade, he spent his days as a corporate Human Resources leader, where he developed a reputation for driving business results through talent.
Today, Jason’s quest is to identify, recognize, and support awesome workplaces as the Director of Best Places to Work for Quantum Workplace. This program includes collecting and analyzing nearly two million employee survey responses across North America annually.
Classically impatient, curious, and ambitious, Jason’s early career was a rapid progression of sales and management roles including launching, leading, and ultimately selling a small business in his mid-twenties. He’s a leader, sales guy, entrepreneur, and corporate executive all rolled up into one.
Jason, along with Joe Gerstandt, is the co-author of the book, Social Gravity: Harnessing the Natural Laws of Relationships. Jason is also a frequently published writer and blogger on talent and leadership topics.
