Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) September 22, 2008
Knowledge Infusion, a leading provider of strategic advisory and consulting services focused on HR, talent management, and emerging technology solutions, today announced that Knowledge Infusion CEO Jason Averbook will be a featured keynote speaker at the IDC Human Resources Summit, "Human Capital Count," taking place September 23, 2008, in Toronto, Ontario.
The IDC summit will explore how Canadian organizations can continue to cultivate a high performance workforce when faced with retiring employees and the challenge of recruiting from a new generation of workers. Averbook's keynote, "Digital HR and Disruptive Technologies--How Can HR Leverage without Being Disrupted," will explain how HR leaders can leverage emerging technology favored by the generation entering the workforce for the first time, to create strategic advantage.
"The newest generation of young workers is deeply entrenched with emerging technologies such as social networking and Web 2.0," said Knowledge Infusion CEO Jason Averbook. "For organizations to successfully build and maintain a thriving workforce from today's talent pool, HR leaders must help their organization overcome the stigma of disruption these tools carry, and understand how embracing these technologies can help them become an employer of choice."
