Last January, employment experts used the new decade to make predictions about technology, compensation and the world of work. Three months later, COVID-19 emerged. Now we can see that these thought leaders, and the rest of the working world, did not understand what disruption and innovation actually meant to us.

In this compelling keynote and fireside chat, Laurie Ruettimann weighs in with her thoughts on the compensation predictions for 2020 that were proven wrong, and why it's easy to forecast employment trends without accountability.

She then covers the real compensation trends for 2021—going beyond technology and policy to include topics of empathy, self-leadership, and the resilience to do the right thing even when it's complicated.
