SAP NEWSBYTE — SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced Laszlo Bock, former senior vice president of People Operations at Google and CEO and cofounder of machine learning workplace startup Humu, will be a keynote speaker at SuccessConnect® in Berlin, one of the top human resources (HR) events of the year, taking place June 18-20 at CityCube Berlin. Bock will present “Work Rules! Insights from Inside Google and Elsewhere to Transform How You Live and Lead” and share a road map for building an “unbeatable organization.”
SuccessConnect in Berlin will bring together executives and leaders in HR, IT and other lines of business to explore successful HR strategies in the digital economy. As a former Google executive and the creator of the field of “people analytics,” Bock has contributed significantly to the advancement of workplace culture. His SuccessConnect keynote will address how organizations can foster a culture that creates high-performance teams and makes work better.
“Our objectives for hosting SuccessConnect include building community, sharing learning, exciting attendees about how technology can help companies achieve their business goals today and in the future, demoing our cool innovations and inspiring people, as they take a few days out of their regular routines to join us,” SAP SuccessFactors President Greg Tomb said. “At Google, Laszlo Bock is credited with creating the field of people analytics. In his time there, he oversaw the growth of the company from ~6,000 to ~75,000 employees, while ensuring the firm’s culture remained innovative and robust. His career exemplifies what it means to rethink the future of work. With SAP SuccessFactors solutions, we are committed to improving work and helping businesses become exceptional employers, and we are thrilled to have Laszlo highlighting this critical topic at SuccessConnect in Berlin.”
