Annella Heytens

Vice President Human Resources
Transforming the HR Organisation

The impact and role of HR is more significant than ever in the current VUCA world.

In a fast-moving and rapidly evolving world, agility and speed of response to support business goals as well as a focus on employee engagement are essential traits of today’s high-performing organisations.

Through this informative and insightful session, Annella Heytens will demonstrate how Cisco has transformed HR - evolving from an organisation of HR business partners to a team of HR consultants and business leaders at the centre of innovation and transformation. As part of this transformation, hear about HR’s focus on thought leadership, digitalization and data analytics that have enhanced the efficiency of delivery and the overall digital employee experience (DEX) of the company.
