Sessions and Speakers (full agenda coming soon!):
The push to automate is changing roles and how we do our jobs. Coupled with that, we now have different generations joining the workforce who have significantly different technology skill sets. When technology fails, we will fall back to service employees, and the “personal” aspect of relationships will become even more important to business success. How will we motivate, re-train, and encourage employees to continue to be curious and function through the amount of constant disruption and change they are about to encounter?
Today’s technology and services leadership will need to maintain a strong focus on employees, their engagement, their emotional connection to the company, their overall curiosity, and their drive to be engaged with customers in a meaningful way. Emphasis on automation is a significant driver, but continuing to focus, and in some cases re-focus, on employees is vital.
For those in support, it is not unusual to experience high attrition. A majority of the attrition is voluntary, and it’s due to monotonous tasks that are boring and lack true value. But now other areas of the business are seeing rising attrition rates and finding recruiting more challenging than ever before. Driving high employee engagement through creation of interesting work that challenges and rewards employees is beyond necessary for the entire enterprise. Technology companies are facing a critical supply-and-demand problem for skilled employees looking for long-term career options.
This virtual summit will include TSIA research, member stories, and in-depth examples of how leadership can continue to find ways to incorporate employees into the higher-level success of the company and build a winning culture for both employees and ultimately for customers.
