Keynote Presentation: "@Twitter's Product-Driven People Team: Engineered to Empower!"

Twitter is at a unique inflection point in its history, and the People team is blending traditional and new approaches to attract and retain the best talent and help drive the company into the future. Because our employees use Twitter passionately and they're united by our purpose, we pull from our customer centric product and marketing strategies and apply them to the employee experience. We have even moved our People, Communications and Marketing functions under one umbrella maximizing our approach to engage, develop, and delight our people! We will share our journey and learning about applying business best practices to HR.

Thought Leadership Spotlight featuring Indeed: "Humans vs. Machines"

The hiring process offers employers multiple opportunities to make a positive impression on prospective employees and, unfortunately, just as many chances to lose out on great candidates.

Join Indeed as we actively map the highs and lows of key stages in your candidate experience. Derive inspiration from other employers who are implementing innovative strategies to capture the attention of and delight their candidates and, in doing so, are approaching the candidate experience as the two-way street it is. Before you evaluate the candidates coming through your door—or your inbox, as the case may be—evaluate your candidate experience to ensure it’s as great as the talent you hope to hire.

Thought Leadership Spotlight featuring Right Management: "Bring your BFF to a Performance Conversation"

How often do you hear employees saying, “I can’t wait for my annual performance conversation!” In spite of thousands of people-hours spent gathering feedback, filling out forms, installing new “feedback systems: preparing for reviews and ratings, employees more often than not walk away feeling dissatisfied and even demotivated and disengaged.
 
In fact, most of us would agree the science and proof of the Performance Review is no longer valid and needs to be re-examined with the goal in mind – improved performance.
 
Come hear how using the latest in neuroscience and BFF (Brain Friendly Feedback)  managers and employees increasingly are having a different type of conversation – one that is satisfying and even engaging and improving performance.  
 
We may not quickly dispense with Performance Reviews, but we can drive the conversation towards the results we desire – improved performance, engaged employees, and managers who facilitate an employee - brain friendly conversation.
