The Davos of Human Capital 2021
Session Date: 22 July 2021
The world was moving towards a model of greater people empowerment before the Covid pandemic, but organizational models lagged behind – and had to adapt quickly as the crisis swept the globe.
As we look ahead to recovery, we have no choice but to take a people-first approach to business. Why? We’ve learned that businesses have to create the conditions with people and society that enable them to flourish over time. Technology connected us, but our shared human experience exposed our need for empathy, care, creativity and collaboration. This has reshaped the importance of unifying our approach to the planet, our people and our businesses into a single-minded strategy.
At The Davos of Human Capital 2021, Duke CE will convene a global conversation on what it means to humanize our organizations, strategies and the way we work.
You’ll hear from Thinkers50 #1 strategy expert Rita McGrath on re-imagining strategy through a human lens and how leaders can capture the next wave of advantage in the post-pandemic era. Top global leaders and experts will share how they are unlocking the human capacity to explore, invent and imagine our new reality with empathy, creativity and collaboration.
