At the SHRM Conference Expo 2016, Jeremy, alongside Jamie Notter, will be presenting the session “Computers + Culture = Cash: Two Experts Talk One Strategy That Can Pay Off Big Time” which is intended for senior-level HR professionals. The session will take turns breaking down the technical and cultural implications of five major topics: recruiting, engagement, recognition, development and retention. This session will help you learn:
- How to create one strategy that encompasses both technical and cultural changes in addressing HR challenges.
- The risks of rushing into one or the other without proper forethought.
- When the technology should drive culture, and vice versa.
- How that one strategy can translate to better business performance.
Outside of work, Jeremy is a shortstop, fictional writer, and father, among other roles and interests. He enjoys satisfying client needs, closing deals, writing, long walks on a Cape Cod beach at sunset with the waves lapping at the shore, and humor.
