If You Can’t Beat ‘Em, Join ‘Em: Embracing Automation and Machine Learning

Machine learning and artificial intelligence are popular buzzwords that, for some, are scary and intimidating. For others, they’re a promise of the end of drudgery and boring work. Yes, this technology will bring many changes to the compensation profession. And with these changes, these words and terminology often are pitched by salespeople who are overselling or tactical experts who talk about inaccessibly. In this session, presenters Paul Reiman and Bryan Briscoe help compensation professionals move forward by demystifying the buzzwords and sharing ideas and insights. Attendees should prepare for nerdy and inspirational examples beyond traditional compensation analysis.

Making Over the Rewards Function to Address the Future Workforce

Traditional employment is challenged by the Gig Economy, automation is changing the value of skills and prevalence of roles, and workforce demographics introduce new priorities for the employee value proposition. All of this challenges how the rewards function supports the business today and into the future, and it provides an opportunity for TR professionals to use new skills, data and technology. Presenters Paul Reiman, Bryan Briscoe, Chris Dobyns and Angel Alamo Ruiz identify questions, issues and hot topics were rewards “best practices” may need to change, and highlight what innovative thinking and reasoning looks like for these scenarios.
