NEWS FOR LAWYERS AND SOURCING PROFESSIONALS

We recently hosted our 8th annual Women in Shared Services and Outsourcing Executive Roundtable in New York. More than 50 women from across the United States attended the May 8 event, representing a wide range of industries, including financial services, consumer products, energy, and life sciences.

Our keynote speaker was Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, a professor of business psychology, who led an interactive presentation on how economic and technological changes are reshaping the nature of work and how one’s future depends on being a signal in the noisy universe of human capital. We also featured interactive panels on “Sounding (and Managing) the Alarm on Cybersecurity” and “The New Adventures of Old Governance,” which prompted a lot of audience input and questions.

The highlight of the day was a lunchtime discussion of the approaches that companies have used to advance the recruitment, retention, engagement, and development of women in a panel titled “Women’s Initiatives: The Wave of the Future.”
