Most work today involves thinking, or influencing other people's thinking. This boils down to improving how our brains function, both individually and collectively. It may be that in the future, HR folks need to understand a lot more about the human brain than they do today. This session outlines why HR should be learning about the brain, what they should be learning, and the possible benefits to this. We also explore some of the surprises emerging out of brain research, that explain many of the pain points that HR has to deal with. You will: • Understand the links between brain research and HR;
• Know how to find the latest brain research relevant to HR;
• Be able to discuss the relevance of brain research to HR; and
• Be able to identify ways of utilizing brain research to increase workplace engagement and performance.
