NYC SHRM Announces Amy Wright and Josh Bersin as Keynote Speakers for Annual HR Conference

Accelerating the Journey to HR 3.0: Ten ways to transform in a time of upheaval

NYC SHRM is excited to announce Amy Wright and Josh Bersin as a Keynote Speakers for Navigating Next our Annual HR Conference.

As the pandemic pressures companies worldwide to rethink nearly every aspect of how they operate and address people and talent issues, the role of talent executives has never been more critical. Amid these sweeping changes, CHROs can seize this moment to evolve, to bring forward a new era of HR—what we at IBM refer to as HR 3.0. It’s an exciting vision, in which HR shifts away from a process-oriented function to an agile consulting arm and in doing so, drives engagement and productivity, fosters trust in uncertain times and cultivates resilient workforces.


  1. Humanity at the heart of the Cognitive Enterprise. As new technologies, business models and global disruptions transform the enterprise, it is essential to elevate the work and skills of employees and teams.
  2. HR 3.0 is a business imperative. Executives agree HR must be redefined with guiding principles of personalization, skills at the core, data-driven decision-making, transparency and agility.
  3. The best companies are already taking bold steps. Ten action areas in HR emerge as priorities for transformation with leading companies outpacing their peers by innovating in all areas.
