Organizations in The Day After Tomorrow

Peter Hinssen

Peter Hinssen

Chairman & Co-Founder

Nexxworks

We usually focus on the here and now, which makes sense, but we also spend a lot of time thinking of tomorrow: what will be our future value? How will our company survive disruption? It’s tomorrow that keeps us up at night. Though many don’t think much about the future, the greatest of thinkers who imagine the ideas, concepts notions or inspirations that focus on The Day After Tomorrow are the ones who create change in companies, industries and even the world.

In ‘The Day After Tomorrow’, Peter will talk about the right model of operations, the right organizational structure, and the right culture to maximize your chances for survival. Peter will share practical examples of pioneers who managed to move beyond and were able to change the course of entire industries. He will describe how they did it, so you can learn from their mistakes and their immense successes. But above all, he will discuss the people, the talent, the mind-set and the structures you will need to optimize your chances to thrive.

These new systems, built in a new “digital HR architecture,” are reinventing the way HR and IT teams should think about technology. In this research-based presentation, Josh Bersin will explain this new marketplace and give you guidance on ways to develop your digital HR strategy for the coming years.

Data privacy as business priority

Data breaches made news headlines in 2016, and no type of business was exempt, in 2017 there is a huge attention paid to holistic security and data privacy as a business priority within the recruitment industry. What we see in the industry regarding most high-profile breaches (for e.g. US elections and others) and how companies deal with that by spending more money on security tools while what they need to do is to stop storing every sensitive conversation so they don’t have to protect so much data.
