Thought Leadership Spotlight featuring American Management Association: "How the Internet has Affected Today's Learner"

Because of the rapid pace of business and life in general, today’s workers are taking it upon themselves to search out their own skill development.  Learning organizations are embracing the idea of “learner-centric” learning to off-set tighter budgets, smaller staff’s, and increased priorities.  However, many are not thinking through the consequences of such a strategy.  American Management Association (AMA) will share insight from research conducted by Yale University who looked at the impact of self-selected learning as well as discuss how to maximize the impact of this learning strategy.

HR Leaders everywhere are being asked to implement and develop new strategies that help their workforce stay ahead of today’s digital revolution. But it’s much more than technology. HR Leaders are now expected to hold the line, adopting new solutions and methodologies that further drive efficiency, establish value to their business, and change the very fabric of acquiring talent. With 2019 proving an ultra-competitive job market, digital transformation and emerging technology are key factors needed to push businesses ahead of the competition (now and in the future).

Thought Leadership Spotlight featuring ServiceNow: "HR as a Role-Model for Innovation - Using Rapid Experimentation in the Search for Best in Class Service"

Rapid experimentation and innovation generally aren’t mindsets for which HR is widely known. Come listen to Gaylan Sankey, Principle Employee Experience Strategist at ServiceNow, discuss the benefits of both, along with design thinking. Hear about how design thinking and experimentation can help with:

  • Customer Experience with HR offerings
  • Engagement for HR employees doing the work
  • Keeping senior level hypothesis on care from becoming SOPs that may not actually work
  • Running HR in a way that will increase efficiency, effectiveness and achieve best in class results

Keynote Presentation: "A Data-Driven Product Management Approach in Health & Well-Being"

What should we make?  Who is our target customer?  Where should we invest?  What is the return on our existing investments?  These questions are debated in commercial organizations on a regular basis.  The growth of data has given leaders the ability to answer these questions based on existing information related to customer needs, priorities and market demand. 

 In HR, we are continually answering these same questions for the products and services that support our customers, the employees.

This talk will focus on how we are bringing a product management approach to employee health and well-being and leveraging data to identify product opportunities and outcomes of programs.

2:35pm - 3:20pm
Panel Discussion: "Creating a Culture of Innovation through Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion"

Session topics include (but are not limited to):

  • How does your organization define diversity? What steps have been taken to achieve DEI?
  • How does your DEI strategy evolve from year to year as your organization progresses?
  • In what ways does DEI drive performance?
  • What behaviors can leaders display in order to establish an innovative atmosphere for their employees?
  • Are there specific tools that HR professionals can utilize to foster a more diverse and inclusive work environment?
  • Are there particular functions you notice a lack of diversity, both within your organization and within the wider professional landscape? How can this be ameliorated?
  • Some organizations have recently closed business for a full day to conduct diversity training for their employees; do you think such extensive training is effective enough to change behavior? From your experience, what is the best strategy in training employees to adopt a more inclusive work environment?
