Atlanta — March 21, 2019


Jim Link, chief human resources officer, Randstad North America


Join Link as he addresses the “5 Barriers You’ll Need to Break for Success in 2020 – and Beyond” at SHRM-Atlanta’s SOAHR 2019 . Link will discuss the steps HR leaders can take to rethink and redesign their workforce strategies to ensure business sustainability. He will speak on disruptive trends contributing to the erosion of the traditional workplace, leadership traits needed to succeed in the post-digital workplace and much more.


Link’s session will take place on Wednesday, March 27, 2019, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. EST.


Cobb Galleria Centre 2 Galleria Pkwy SE Atlanta, GA 30339


During his keynote, Link will highlight major factors impacting the future workplace and the five barriers companies must overcome to thrive in 2020 — and beyond. Session attendees will:

  • Learn how to shift from leading toward action to leading toward decompression. The pervasiveness of technology and how the resulting fast-paced, 24/7 world will greatly impact decision-making. Leaders will need to learn to help employees “decompress” from the digital and balance the pressures of real-time response and immediate tasks with long-term, strategic decision-making.
  • Understand which needs in Maslow’s Hierarchy can be supported through technology in the workplace and which are at risk.
  • Gain insight on how neglecting to adapt to a more agile work environment will cause some companies to miss out on skilled talent. Identify which high-touch and high-tech skills will be valued and required in an increasingly automated and robotic business landscape.
  • Learn how to configure your workplace to best engage Gen Z and millennials in the workplace and how to further develop your organizational culture to take advantage of their strengths, passions and interests.
  • Uncover the business metrics every HR leader should know to develop a strong workforce strategy.
