randstad US and shrm-atlanta host webinar to discuss how to maintain human connectivity in a post-digital world.

Atlanta – January 23, 2018


Jim Link, chief human resources officer, Randstad North America.


During the Maintaining the Connect in a Post-Digital World webinar, Jim Link will address critical areas of the workplace in which business leaders must leverage technology and focus on capturing the human element of work to meet the needs of employees. Registrants will gain a better understanding of how HR is being redesigned to better leverage technology, how technology is changing the way we work and what valued skill sets are anticipated for the future.


Link's session will be held on Monday, January 29, 2018 at 12:00 noon EST.


This is a virtual event. Visit the SHRM-Atlanta webinar page to register and get more information. Registration is complimentary for SHRM-Atlanta members and $30 for all other attendees.


Employees are motivated by both basic and higher sets of needs, which can be supported by key findings from Randstad's recent Workplace 2025 study and a long-standing psychological theory known as Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. As a workplace futurist, Link will cover how automation and digital technologies will impact companies ability to attract, retain and manage talent. Webinar attendees will learn:

  • Which needs in Maslow’s Hierarchy can be supported through technology, such as flexibility, connectivity and self-empowerment.
  • About the trends shaping the post-digital workplace and how they’re adding value or inhibiting the human element.
  • Workplace strategies that will maximize human connection in the workplace when dealing with virtual workers, automation, cognitive technologies, collaborative digital infrastructures and machine decision-making.
  • How failing to adapt to a more agile work environment will cause some companies to lose skilled talent.

Human resources and hiring professionals, as well as forward-thinking business leaders are encouraged to attend. Registration is open through January 26, 2018. To register, visit SHRM-Atlanta.
