Whether you were at the conference in the front row or couldn't make it this year, check out our top takeaways of the day!

6. HR’s New Strategic Role in the New World of Work
Josh Bersin, Analyst and Founder of joshbersin.com
This year, talent is the #1 thing on the minds of CEOs. They’re hiring people as fast as they can and trying to grow, but productivity is slowing. To fill that gap, we’re working more hours, getting less sleep, becoming more stressed...And employers are being asked to take responsibility for it. As hard as it is to work right now, the only way companies will be able to grow is through productivity and engagement.
