Justin Barlow, Director of Partnerships at Honor featuring technology for caregiver productivity and retention
-Honor has invested significantly in supporting care pros with first-of-its-kind technology to allow them to control their hours, find work opportunities, gain feedback, and advance their careers. In turn, we seek feedback from our caregivers (we call them Care Professionals) regularly and systematically with quantitative and qualitative surveys and focus groups. We have achieved an employee satisfaction level higher than Google and Apple employees. We will walk through key takeaways from our outreach into what is important to this workforce.
Kira Freeman of Aira featuring technology to make automation simple for older adults
-As the world becomes more automated, Aira is here to keep it simple by connecting users to real people. We refer to them as Aira agents. Our agents are highly trained professionals and are empowered to collaborate and assist people with virtually any task. Agents have the ability to answer technology questions, conveniently order Uber & Lyft rides with or without a smartphone, assist with public transportation, provide navigation in an unfamiliar city, collaborate on a project and much more. Through our work, we have learned that the value of connecting to a live person goes beyond visual information. . Our agents excel in the areas of technology, transportation, connection, and external support, and we are determined to make these skills available for all.
