Microsoft Demo: Modern HR – Microsoft Technology in Action

Room: Demo Room #1 (Rear of Expo)

Come see how to modernize your workplace with Microsoft solutions for HR. We’ll show live demos of how you can screen in talent, connect to collaborate and turn people data into insights. Leave here and hit the ground running with Dynamics 365 for Talent, Microsoft 365 (including Teams) and Workplace Analytics.

What you’ll learn

We have seen an exponential growth of digital connectivity, devices, technology, and data. And yet, our workplaces and workforces still operate according to the early 20th-century assembly line models of repetition, efficiency, and scale. Modern workplaces are more than just exceptional places to work—they are cultures where people are inspired and empowered to innovate, create, and collaborate. Achieving this vision requires HR to build a modern workforce—bringing together people to pursue their passions and realize their purpose. A modern workforce is made up of connected people. At this year’s HR Tech, we are excited to showcase how to:

  • Connect to collaborate and communicate at scale with Microsoft 365
  • Connect collaboration to business outcomes and make better business decisions with Workplace Analytics
  • Connect your entire hiring team and transform talent acquisition with Dynamics 365 for Talent

Connect to engage employees

The workforce of today thrives in an environment of collaboration and engagement, yet research shows that an astonishingly high percentage of full-time employees are disengaged at work. Learn how you can improve employee engagement in your organization and empower people in the modern workplace with Microsoft 365.

  • Foster agile collaboration with modern tools for teamwork.
  • Provide employees with the tools to work from anywhere while keeping employee and company information secure.
  • Accelerate cultural transformation through effective employee engagement and communications.

Connect to deliver people insights

Workplace Analytics uses everyday work from Office 365 to connect collaboration patterns to business outcomes. It gives business leaders new visibility into the way work happens across their organization and shows how collaboration influences people productivity and engagement.

  • Quantify your organization’s collaboration patterns like meeting quality, manager engagement, and employee network depth and breadth.
  • Visualize insights and track changes over time with built-in dashboards.
  • Map behaviors to manager performance, employee engagement, and other outcomes data.

Connect to modernize hiring

Increase quality of hire with streamlined job postings, assessments, interviews, offers and onboarding. Dynamics 365 for Talent empowers your HR organization and people managers with the tools they need to win top talent and enable their success.
