OCIO CONNECT 2016 INVITES YOU TO HACK INNOVATION

 

OCIO Connect 2016 is a two-day, thought-provoking conference that promises to challenge the status quo and break the traditional. This year we are welcoming a new level of collaboration in the form of a Hackathon. This pre-conference all-day long session will allow government employees to step out of their roles for a day and explore business solutions in teams. All you need to bring is your personal skill-sets, ideas, and an open mind! This is not a typical hackathon that requires a coding background.

 

THE CONNECT HACKATHON CHALLENGE

Explore innovative approaches to deliver an enhanced corporate employee onboarding model. The goal is to provide a more consistent, positive and engaging employee experience from the time a new employee accepts an offer of employment through to the end of their first year of service. This includes everything from the logistics of employee IM/IT provisioning to orientation and new employee training and development.

 

WHO?

We want you! Stoke your creativity and explore a collaborative path to a business solution.
Special Guest Facilitators and Researchers from: IBM, PwC, Gartner Canada Co, Forrester Researcher Inc.and IDC Canada

The Victoria Conference Centre at 720 Douglas St, Victoria, BC V8W 3M7
