The session today was stimulating, highly informative, and valuable. All three presenters were well-prepared, organized, and understandably enthusiastic about the successful and innovative CHRO/CIO collaboration they shared with ESA participants. Think all three pointed the way for those in attendance to shape the future of work with innovative technology-HR collaborations.
