Mastering the Employee Experience During Corporate Changes

Corporate restructuring, whether conducted through a sale, buyout, IPO, carve-out or spin-off, are increasingly popular tools for businesses to boost balance sheets and deliver shareholder value. However, the first thing most people think about when their company announces a restructuring, is change. Inevitably, there will be change at some level for all employees of each of the companies involved. Companies that are most successful in leading change do so by focusing on the employee experience. Shari Yocum will lay out a road map for navigating change and offer guidance on leadership, technologies and other key integration processes that drive a smooth and successful transition for employees and companies involved, to ultimately ensure the value of a deal over time.

Yet, for the startups themselves, working with corporations can be daunting. Thomas Otter will detail the crucial role HR tech startups play in propelling the HR tech function and provide tips on how your organization can gain competitive advantages by selecting and effectively implementing solutions from early-stage providers.
