Mark Stelzner, EPIC Conference Chair, shared, “For some time now, HR has had to cope with increased demands, limited resourcing and a disproportionate focus on digitization. While these are still real considerations, we are seeing a necessary and critical return to human centricity, including a hunger for innovative ideas, fresh perspectives and overall advancement of the people profession. EPIC is embracing and amplifying this moment through voices known and new.”
