Learn how to design strategies that cultivate social capital along with human capital to amplify talent for greater results. 

The rise of social media and other technologies have changed how we do business. These same technologies are changing the very nature of work and how the workplace must be designed. This evolution has revealed that our traditional models for cultivating talent are insufficient. The new equation for talent isn't just about building human capital (knowledge, skills and abilities). It must also include social capital (the value that exists within relationships) if you are to unlock your organization's true capability for innovation and performance. This session will reveal the new talent equation and how the next evolution for HR is to become the social architect of the organization. This session will help you:

Explore how the evolution of the organization and the rise of social technology has fundamentally changed the way value is created within the organization. 
Uncover how this shift now requires an expanded definition of talent that considers the power of personal relationships and networks as an amplifier of impact.  
Discover how cultivating connection as a means to build social capital is an underutilized but powerful strategy for gaining competitive advantage.
Learn six powerful strategies with 12 specific tactics for creating a work environment that fosters connection and grows social capital as a means to fuel innovation, engagement and performance across the organization.
