1 Day Meeting

2015 Human Capital Leadership Forum

New York, NY - Oct 06, 2015

Overview

As Human Capital leaders continue to face tough decisions as a result of a still-improving economy, other critical areas remain top-of-mind, including keeping employees engaged, creating succession management plans, handling executive compensation, and increasing influence in the board room. These challenges put a number of new pressures on Human Capital leaders, who must balance business demands while simultaneously satisfying the workforce. These are among the topics that will be discussed at the 2015 Human Capital Leadership Forum in New York.

"The behavioral healthcare crisis: Improving employee access and outcomes"

Whether due to a lack of awareness, perceived stigma, or the inability to access quality, affordable care, unaddressed cases of behavioral health conditions are rampant throughout today’s workforce. In this country, 25 percent of employed adults have a diagnosable behavioral health condition, with 70 percent of those cases going undiagnosed and untreated. In this session, we will address the following key questions:

  • What are the barriers that are keeping your population from accessing care?
  • How can employers manage the current mental health epidemic in the United Stated?
  • How can technology streamline access to care and deliver better outcomes?

"The HR Agenda: Drive real business value from a successful employee onboarding experience"Efficiency and quality of the onboarding experience have a domino effect in most areas of business and a successful experience can increase the probability of employeeretention by over 80%.  Given the challenges of this extremely competitive industry, our clients, ServiceNow, identified a business need to standardize, optimize and automate onboarding as rapid growth and expansion threatened their ability to keep up with demand in a high growth talent market.  While many current technology providers offered onboarding tools, there remained a need for a new solution that could do much more.   As a result, ServiceNow became an early adopter of KPMG OnBoard, which applies an employee-centric approach and createsa consistent, simplified experience that breaks down the typical silos between HR, managers and employees, while increasing acculturation andaccelerates productivityand engagement of new hires.    Hear KPMG and ServiceNow walk through the client story, including the business case, approach, lessons learned, benefits, and business impactthat will result from this solution.
