Workplace Application:
This highly interactive session gives you the tools to negotiate with the toughest CEO, vendor or employee whether live OR via zoom! 

If you think negotiating skills are only for salespeople, think again!  Every single relationship in your work life entails some negotiation. True, it's often linked to sales (or business), but that limited perspective ignores the fact that negotiation pervades all aspects of the HR professional's life.   Trying to increase your company's productivity levels? Considering expanding product lines (and therefore people)? Buying a competitor? Going global? Leading a team to increase your employee's engagement level? Attempting to get the best deal from your new benefits provider? Asking for your own well-deserved promotion? In all of these situations, you'll have to negotiate to succeed.  This session will review the eight critical success factors to succeed in a negotiation: 1) Goals, 2) Trade-offs, 3) Alternatives, 4) Relationships, 5) Expected Outcomes, 6) the Consequences, 7) Balance of Power and 8) Determining Win-Win Solutions either live OR via zoom.

Learning Objectives:

  • Overcome the zoom divide to get to the heart of the other side's concerns during negotiations.
  • Discuss the 5 Negotiation Styles (Avoid, Compete, Accommodate, Collaborate, Compromise) and when to employ (and avoid) each.
  • Use objective vs. subjective negotiation criteria.
  • Reframe negative internal conversations that can sabotage your negotiation prowess.
  • Properly prepare to prevent a lousy outcome for you!

Develop strategic, financial, and business acumen by understanding five principles that your CEO expects you to know. 

Your executive team wants the entire business to be profitable, not just a single unit. They want all employees to understand and better contribute to how the entire company makes money, and employees want to feel that the work they do for their company is worthwhile and makes a difference.

How do we simplify the complex? When you break down an organization into its most fundamental elements, you'll find the same five drivers that power your business, or any business.   If you want to be seen as a major contributor, someone who understands your overall business, not just HR, this a great session for you.

We are becoming an increasingly diverse society that needs a high level of performance from all members if we are to manifest our intended level of greatness.

Teresa Peterson, Director of Learning and Development , Sarah Noll Wilson, Inc.
Workplace Application:
Attendees will learn the Curiosity First Approach coaching model that can be used to help team members powerfully navigate their avoidance of conflict. 

The strongest teams are not the ones without conflict; the strongest teams are those that know how to have conflict and thrive because of it. When teams are psychologically safe and adaptive, team members can be their whole authentic selves, they can ask questions, take risks, be able to fail, and disagree. There is a commitment to constant exploring, experimenting, and evolving on an individual level and as a team. Great teams do not happen by chance - they are built by choice.   But what if people aren't able or don't know how to engage in honest conversations that are candid, compassionate, and curious? Then the room fills with avoidance and elephants start to take up space. Now our teams are not only avoiding conflict, but connection as well. To overcome our avoidance of the problem, we need to understand how and why we are feeding the elephant. By taking a Curiosity First Approach, we increase ownership, have kind and candid conversations, and build more powerful partnerships.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify common avoidant behaviors and human factors that drive them.
  • Examine when avoidance may be appropriate and necessary.
  • Discover different "elephants" that can emerge.
  • Explore and apply the Curiosity First Model of Coaching.

This session will review the signs of quiet quitting and the legal issues and potential pitfalls related to how some employers have responded. 

With COVID-19's upheaval of the workplace and our lives, many employees have reexamined their work/live balance, priorities, expectations and career path. Some have taken advantage of the hot job market and moved on to better positions. Others have decided to stay put but their approach to work may have changed. Some have chosen to downshift and with that only perform the basic duties of their jobs. This phenomenon, first announced on Tik Tok, is referred to as 'Quiet Quitting' and it takes on many forms but the most common is an employee no longer going above and beyond in the job. This level of performance is acceptable to some employers. But other employers have responded with efforts to improve employee engagement. Still other employers have responded with demotion, discipline and termination. This session will review the legal issues presented with a variety of employer responses.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how to detect quiet quitting.
  • Hear about various ways in which employers have responded.
  • Discuss the legal issues raised with these responses.

Presenter:
Ryan Gottfredson, Ph.D., Leadership Professor & Consultant, California State University, Fullerton
Workplace Application:
The session will focus on helping attendees learn what vertical development is and how they can employ it to elevate executive effectiveness. 

Given the tumultuousness of the environment that executives operate within - including escalating change, pressure, uncertainty, and complexity - and statistics that indicate our struggle to develop effective executives, transformational improvement in how we develop executives is needed now more than ever. In this session, Ryan Gottfredson and Amy P. Kelly, SHRM-SCP, will discuss how human resource leaders can change or improve their practices to help their executives operate at a higher level. Specifically, Ryan and Amy will: 1. Explain how executives are commonly operating at a leadership deficit. Stated differently, we will illuminate the challenges executives are facing and how they are commonly operating at a level below the magnitude of these challenges. 2. Identify the common consequences of operating at a leadership deficit.  3. Introduce vertical development as the approach human resource leaders must take to develop executives, so they can operate at a higher level.

Learning Objectives:

  • Analyze the degree to which your organization's executives are operating at a leadership deficit and identify the consequences.
  • Employ a transformational form of executive development, called vertical development, to elevate your executives' ability to navigate change, pressure, uncertainty, and complexity.
  • Elevate your organization by elevating the effectiveness of your organization's executives.
  • Expand your executive team's capacity to drive the organization through vertical development.

Becoming a Strategic Leader, Thinker & Value-Adder: The Role HR Must Play in Organizational Strategy
06/11/2023 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM N2
Competencies: Business (Behavioral), Organization (Technical)

Presenter:
Richard Fagerlin, President, Peak Solutions, Inc.
Workplace Application:
Understand what it takes to be a strategic leader in your organization and start adding value immediately. 

During this session, participants will receive tools, resources and practical examples of how to be a strategic leader. Strategy isn't something that is relegated to the board and the C-suite. Every leader must be strategic-and not just within their department. The focus of this session is less about leading strategy for the HR department and more about how HR can drive strategic thinking and add value throughout the organization. The idea is that functional leaders don't need you to wear your HR hat when you are serving them-they need you to wear your operations, sales, marketing and executive hats. They NEED you to be STRATEGIC. Only when HR leaders begin to think strategically, act strategically and execute strategically will they really bring the most value possible to their organizations.

Learning Objectives:

  • Determine what your real value is to your organization.
  • Find out what you might be doing that makes it difficult to do business with you and what you can do to fix that.
  • Be prepared to lead strategic planning and thinking sessions for the departments or groups that you serve.
  • Evaluate the readiness of your constituents to make real and lasting changes.
  • Apply an organizational health model to your efforts to determine areas of ailing and good health.

Workplace Application:
Strategically create a differentiating culture that inspires behavior change and fosters peak performance. 

Do employees bring passion, commitment, and skills to work every day? Do your leaders inspire teams to collaborate better and perform higher? Alarmingly, only 12 percent of executives believe their organizations are driving the right culture, which leads to decreased productivity, creativity, profitability, value and growth. Discover how to create a cutting-edge culture-where people feel empowered to do their best work, trust and respect their leaders, and willingly collaborate and perform in highly effective ways. Attract the best talent and select the right individuals to inspire and lead productive teams. Alter workplace behaviors and performance-where negative conflict is controlled, accountability grows, and results are achieved. Make culture the differentiating reason your organization successfully captures both market share and mind share so skillfully.

  • Attract the best talent using attributes they target, select the right individuals to inspire and lead teams, and invest in growth experiences that enhance ability in unparalleled ways.

Is It Pay? Fact-Based Reasons Employees Quit Plus Real Retention Solutions
06/11/2023 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM N1
Competencies: Business (Behavioral), People (Technical), Workplace (Technical)

Presenter:
Richard Finnegan, Chief Executive Officer, C-Suite Analytics
Workplace Application:
Participants will learn real retention solutions that work during "the great resignation" rather than rely on pay & other one-size-fits-all programs. 

Multiple studies tell us employees are quitting during "the great resignation" for both historic and pandemic-driven reasons, yet most companies' knee-jerk reaction has been to raise pay. And many managers say companies should raise pay even more, putting HR pros in a daily defensive bind. Solutions will be presented that have consistently cut turnover across all industries by 20% and more that focus on leaders building one-on-one stay plans with each individual employee.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the primary reasons employees are quitting jobs and pay is not near the top.
  • Train your managers to develop one-on-one stay plans for each employee by using Stay Interviews.
  • Influence executives to support Stay Interviews by converting turnover to dollars and establishing retention goals.

Robert Bogue, President, Thor Projects LLC
Presenter:
Terri Bogue, Chief Operations Officer, Thor Projects LLC
Workplace Application:
Attendees will learn techniques such as ethnographic interviewing and motivational interviewing to bolster empathetic conversations to get real answers. 

Every HR manager knows that each new situation or conflict brings with it the difficult task of determining the truth or what really happened. Most professionals have developed experience and a feel for how to get closer to the truth, but there are techniques that you can use to reach the truth faster and with fewer hurt feelings. Drawing from anthropology and the study of foreign cultures, we'll provide you with questions you can use that will encourage a deeper understanding of the people and the situation. Pulling from the psychology of motivation, we'll identify approaches and tools that you can use to encourage people to change behaviors – even stubborn behaviors. You'll learn how to see the structure of the conversation as it's evolving as well as the context of the conversation so you can see logical incongruencies and when the inquiry is going in circles. Move from okay to awesome at managing the difficult task of inquiries in your organization.

Learning Objectives:

  • Apply proven questions to get accurate and complete answers.
  • Identify barriers to communication.
  • Develop trust, safety, and rapport to create the conditions for honest answers.

Alexander Alonso, Ph.D., SHRM-SCP, Chief Knowledge Officer, SHRM
Workplace Application:
During this interactive discussion, our panelists will examine how HR professionals, policymakers, and regulators can approach automation in a way that ultimately benefits both workers and the workplace. 

Artificial Intelligence (AI) will play an important role in the future of work. HR professionals are looking to AI technology and automated employment decision tools to meet the needs of their organization including talent acquisition, retention, performance management, and much more.
Today, 1 in 4 organizations report using AI to support HR-related activities; and 43% of CHROs say that they plan to invest more in AI/automation for HR activities.

HR professionals are at the intersection of AI and an increasingly complex environment as policymakers begin to regulate and address the use of AI in the workplace. SHRM and our nearly 325,000 members are well-positioned to lead the conversation on this evolving issue to best address the current, and future needs of work, workers, and the workplace.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how organizations and HR professionals can leverage automated employment decision tools to their advantage.

Transgender Inclusion at Work: Combining Inclusive Structure with Inclusive Culture
06/11/2023 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM N249
Competencies: Interpersonal (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral)

Presenter:
Ben Greene, CEO, Speaker, and Consultant, BG Trans Talks
Workplace Application:
Participants will feel prepared to champion the creation of inclusive structural supports, and the building of welcoming cultures. 

This conversation will take participants on a journey from wherever they may be starting to champions of inclusion. We'll start with updated key language and vocabulary that are used in conversations with and about transgender and nonbinary people, and I'll share my personal story of coming out at 15.   We will ground our discussion in current research around transgender people in the workplace, such as the statistic that 20% of Gen-Z are LGBTQ+, to help participants understand the urgency of this discussion in all workplace settings.   We'll then move to talk through specifics around building safe and supportive environments past the level of just sharing pronouns. Building inclusive workplaces means combining structural change and cultural change, and we will talk through many practical examples of this, as well as how best to respond to backlash around these practices.   To close, Ben will open up to a 100% judgment-free Q&A for any lingering questions.

Learning Objectives:

  • Leave the session with a strong knowledge of inclusive language and terminology for conversations about the transgender and gender non-conforming community.
  • Understand the reasons for urgency in these conversations, and the reality that just because you can't see any transgender people at your organization does not mean they are not there, just that they are not comfortable enough to come out.
  • Leave with clear ideas for inclusive best practices to implement in their workplaces and will be equipped with the tools to respond to questions and backlash around these policies.

Leading the Way: How CHROs are Shaping the Future of Work
06/11/2023 03:30 PM - 04:30 PM N3

Presenter:
Zig Serafin, Chief Executive Officer, Qualtrics
Presenter:
Starla Sampaco, News Anchor, KCTS 9
Moderator:
Julia La Roche, Podcast Host

Opening remarks with Starla Sampaco.

Qualtrics leadership will walk attendees through why tomorrow’s leaders must understand and commit to the essential values of their people. Building a destination workplace starts with knowing what drives the decision-making processes for candidates and employees. Around the world, employees are restructuring their relationships with work — from scrutinizing pay and benefits and reclaiming work-life boundaries to seeking out organizations actively demonstrating their values. 

For a long time, leaders have focused on a range of factors to optimize engagement and intent to stay, building on a solid foundation of organizational practices established in the past. But in the wake of the disruption of the past few years, some of these changes have become expectations and new norms, resulting in a drastic shift in how many perceive and carry out their work. In this session, attendees will learn how to lead forward, from managing people to managing opportunity.

Learn why workplaces prioritizing the employee experience by listening and acting on experience data yield nearly two and half times greater retention. However, data alone is not enough. With talent and career opportunities more mobile than ever, Role Fit, Flexibility, and Workload are the most important factors driving attraction AND retention for high-performing employees.

Global Bias Impact Report
06/12/2023 07:30 AM - 08:30 AM N202
Track: Global HR
Competencies: Leadership (Behavioral)

Presenter:
Lorne Epstein, SHRM SCP, Unconscious Bias Trainer and Organizational Development Professional, Electric Cow LLC
Workplace Application:
Lorne shares the results from his Global Bias Impact Survey. In 2022 and 2023, we asked hundreds of professionals from around the globe to share their insights on the impact of Unconscious Bias in the workplace and what they are doing to mitigate it. This talk presents a summary of what the data revealed. Lorne is committed to improving our ability to relate to one another, learn how to learn, and slow down our thinking to uncover and mitigate our unconscious biases. 

For centuries marginalized people have been crying out for justice, freedom, and an opportunity to be heard. Those who do not feel heard have turned up the volume most recently experienced after the murder of George Floyd.

My report honors marginalized people, including people of color, the LGBTQ community, non-native-born Americans, women, the elderly, and everyone who wants to be seen and accepted for who they are.

Discrimination and dysfunction in the workplace stem from a lack of diversity, inclusion, and equity (DEI). Unconscious Bias is one of the biggest influences on this set of problems. Improving the choices we make will improve DEI and business outcomes.

I want to share with the public what people see as the impact of unconscious bias in their workplace and what they are doing to mitigate it to make our work world a better place.

Questions Addressed:

  • How aware are professionals that bias exists?
  • What are areas of work most impacted by biases?
  • What are their plans to mitigate it?
  • What are their success stories in reducing the impact bias has in their workplace?

Being more aware and removing obstacles to awareness are critical levers in mitigating bias in the workplace. There is an attainable response that can generate the desired solution.

John A. Rubino, CCP, CBP, GRP, WLCP, President, Rubino Consulting Services

Attendees will learn about total rewards around the world and leave with a 'global schematic' of methodologies that can used and adapted to your organization. 

Creating a cohesive Global Total Reward Strategy for your organization is a tough challenge! You need a unified approach worldwide, but your programs must also be adjusted at the regional and local levels. You know the old adage: Think Globally and Act Locally. Of course, there are a number of similarities in total rewards across country boundaries. However, there are also marked differences in various regions of the world, primarily due to nuances in cultural orientation, management style, and the interplay between the government and the private sector. In his informative presentation, John Rubino outlines the 'hottest' global total reward trends and actual practices. Participants will come away with a real-world 'global schematic' of total reward program perspectives, methodologies and approaches that are practiced in top-notch organizations in various regions around the world. This is all for the purpose of attracting, motivating and engaging the best and brightest global employees!

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn specific total reward strategies practiced in various regions of the world, through the use of real-life examples and pragmatic case studies.
  • Hear the latest research data regarding global total reward trends, segmented by world regions.
  • Discuss a 'global schematic' of total reward perspectives, methodologies and approaches that are, and should be, practiced in the majority of premier organizations around the world.
  • Adapt and implement these strategies and techniques within your own organization.

Grateful Leadership for HR Professionals
06/12/2023 07:30 AM - 08:30 AM N225
Competencies: Interpersonal (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral)

Presenter:
Primitivo R. Davis, Colonel, U.S. Army
Workplace Application:
Attendees will learn the exciting and transformational breakthroughs of the Grateful Leadership model, and be given simple tools to create a culture of appreciation based on that practice.  

HR Professionals must know and care about finding ways to enhance people’s level of engagement, commitment and support, especially in the difficult periods all organizations experience at one time or another. Engaged employees work with passion and feel connected and loyal to their organization. This yields higher productivity, sales, and results. Non-engagement in the workplace results in poor performance, limited productivity, and an erosion of the bottom line. HR Professionals are aware and must find ways to show others that people need consistent affirmation of their value and contribution to the organization in order to know that their efforts are appreciated. This can be accomplished through the practice of Grateful Leadership.

Grateful leaders can tap into the power of personal commitment and dedication by acknowledging people in an authentic, heartfelt manner. Those leaders who model true acknowledgment behavior will inspire others to do the same and to want to dramatically increase their levels of contribution to the organization, making the power of acknowledgment transformational.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the need for Grateful leadership to create a culture of appreciation in the workplace.
  • Overcome the barriers to using acknowledgment.
  • Demonstrate the language and subtleties of authentic and heartfelt acknowledgement behavior.
  • Describe Two of the Seven Principles of Acknowledgment in the context of participants' personal leadership styles.
  • Coach teams, managers, and other corporate stakeholders in using GratefulLeadership to produce breakthrough results.

06/12/2023 07:30 AM - 08:30 AM N1
Competencies: Workplace (Technical)

Presenter:
Jim Reidy, Esq., Shareholder, Sheehan Phinney Bass & Green PA
Workplace Application:
Better understand the condition known as Long COVID and the scope of the accommodation process that may be involved with employees suffering with it. 

Long COVID is the condition that describes the long term health effects of a COVID-19 infection. By now many employees have been infected with the COVID-19 virus, perhaps more than on variant, and while they may have recovered and returned to work some still suffer from lasting health challenges as a result of that infection. Those conditions may qualify as disabilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act, as amended, as well as various state laws. Employers may therefore need to engage those employees in an interactive process focused on their ability to perform the essential functions of their jobs with or without reasonable accommodations. This session will review the potential health issues from Long COVID and the accommodation process that may need to be activated.

Learning Objectives:

  • Better understand how COVID-19 infections impact employees.
  • Review current reports on Long COVID cases and the impact on the workplace.
  • Review the accommodation process and pitfalls to avoid.
  • Discuss possible accommodations.
  • Receive guidance on how to handle health inquiries and document accommodation process.

Workplace Application:
Attendees will learn how to develop, implement, and administer a cyber crime risk mitigation strategy to respond to cyber crime. 

Cyber crime is costly and its effects can permeate throughout an organization for years following an attempted or successful cyber attack. Employee benefits plans are particularly at risk for certain types of cyber crime activities, due to their large transactional volumes and the relative value of their portfolio of assets, both in the retirement and health and welfare contexts. While almost no defensive strategy will create a perfectly impermeable employer, there are proactive steps that can be taken by an employer to mitigate the opportunity for, and the effects of, cyber crime. The Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act ('HIPAA'), along with other privacy-related laws and regulations, offer a roadmap to building an employer's cyber defensive strategy. In this program, participants will learn methodologies used to analyze and respond to an attempted or successful cyber attack according to HIPAA best practices.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the four primary rules espoused under the law of HIPAA that coalesce to create an employer's cyber crime defensive strategies;
  • Understand the prevalence and opportunity for cyber crime directed at private organizations, particularly respecting human resources operations and employee benefit plan administration activities;
  • Understand and apply the principles of HIPAA respecting risk evaluation and risk mitigation opportunities, both as responsive and proactive tactics to mitigate cyber crime activities;
  • Understand and prepare required participant, federal secretary, media, and workforce notices of breach arising upon instances of breaches of protected health information compromised as the consequence of a successful cyber crime attack or campaign of attack; and,
  • Develop and implement an organizational contingency plans to respond to, and to proactively mitigate, the effects of cyber crime activities.

The Hiring Tree: Core Principles to Attracting MORE Applicants in a Tough Market
06/12/2023 07:30 AM - 08:30 AM N257
Competencies: People (Technical)

Presenter:
Steven J. Smith, ApplicantPro
Workplace Application:
Attendees will learn the new 2022/23 rules that govern job boards & understand how to more effectively develop job ads to attract more applicants. 

In this session we will cover the analogy of the Hiring Tree & discuss how the roots, trunk and branches of your hiring process will provide more applicants in any job market. The biggest challenge employers face is lower flow in the last 2 years, in part because they are doing what they have always done. They use job descriptions as their job ads, without realizing that this not only hurts them on the search-ability factor on job boards, but also scares away applicants during the process, which even leads to more ghosting issues than ever before. When you understand the core principles that govern job boards today & how to effectively write a job ad AND put it in the right order, you can increase applicant flow without throwing more money at the problem. The application process also plays a role in attracting or scaring applicants away (the trunk) and you will understand what is working and what NOT to do! If you are involved in any part of the hiring process, this session if for you!

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand Key Differences between Job Boards, Search Engines, Aggregators, and Social Media plus how algorithm changes and AI technology have impacted hiring strategies. You will be armed with ideas on how to strategically approach these channels when marketing roles for your organization in a more effective way.
  • Develop, implement and manage an effective employee referral program in a strategic way and understand how social media plays a part in this process. Understand how this strategy targets passive applicants, including new data that shows what is working and why.
  • Build out a sound understanding of the core elements of a job ad to gain more visibility and attract more qualified job seekers to your roles for active job seekers. We will be discussing strategic elements of a job ad that need to exist to give applicants a higher chance of finding your jobs.
  • Is ghosting a problem for your organization?  Also learn how to mitigate the ghosting issue by maintaining the right momentum in your hiring process.

Competencies: Business (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral)

Presenter:
Dr. David S. Cohen, Founder and Contrarian Consultant, DS Cohen & Associates
Workplace Application:
Too often leaders try to change the culture, & it fails. What can be done to have a strong and engaging culture? Celebrate what you have that is good. 

Organizations today focus their competitive advantage by building strategic business plans centred on innovation, customer care, artificial intelligence, and technology implementation.  Too often, these strategic initiatives are considered a culture change.  But is this a culture change?   This session will address whether a culture change is possible.  Using two case studies, you will understand the importance of the role of values in defining your culture, the essential place of vision or purpure, and look at the interconnections of culture or stagey.   Most executives understand, in theory, the power of culture―but theory and reality do not often align.  Cultural change efforts often fail and cause more stress for employees.  Why?  Because values are the foundation for culture, values evolve; they generally don't change overnight.  Culture renovation.  It's all about keeping what works, changing what needs to be changed, and celebrating the cultures that made you great.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discover the power of a company that focuses on living its values and having a passion for purpose.
  • Learn effective methods for enabling your leaders to Own the Message with their teams on organizational expectations and changes.
  • Explore common pitfalls and practical approaches for employee communications.
  • Understand the power of the differences between leaders who act and live their values versus those who espouse the values but excuse their actions saying the values are aspirational.
  • Understanding the culture and values journey is not an HR responsibility.

Stop Visualizing and Start Utilizing - Making Data Work

Competencies: Business (Behavioral), Interpersonal (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral)

Presenter:
Shane Yount, President, Competitive Solutions, Inc.
Workplace Application:
Learn the key elements to create a culture that is engaged and using metrics to drive the business forward. 

Business intelligence tools offer countless ways to slice and dice data. Enamored by yet another way to collect data, many organizations today have built the proverbial 'hidden factories' of generating what are merely 'Passive Reports'. Emailed to countless individuals, posted on antiquated bulletin boards, and taking valuable time to build and distribute, these passive reports are simply not 'Driving the business forward.'   Whether it is too much data, too complex data, or most often, the lack of acute business acumen to process the data, most companies today are drowning in useless reports. Learn how to stop visualizing data and start utilizing data as a process, not a report.  Your organization can eventually eliminate many non-value added reporting functions, thus streamlining and simplifying the data that truly allows your workforce to understand 'winning and losing.'

Learning Objectives:

  • Build performance metrics that drive business focus, urgency and accountability.
  • Create an accountable and engaged culture that is measurable and demonstrative.
  • Learn the four non-negotiable processes for a robust management system.
  • Create a communication cadence that informs at all levels and tiers.

Strategies for Engaging White Men as Allies in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Work
06/12/2023 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM W317
Competencies: Interpersonal (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral)

Presenter:
Michael Baran, Founder and CEO, Iris Inclusion
Workplace Application:
Attendees will learn helpful strategies, mindsets, and approaches for bringing everyone on board with workplace DEI initiatives. 

For far too long, white men have been centered, advantaged, and treated as the 'standard' or 'norm' in workplace structures and cultures. This is not surprising, considering that the same forces are at play in the wider systems in which we all work, live, and play. The systemic inequities both perpetuate and are reinforced by assumptions and biases about white men. As DEI work aims to move societies and workplaces forward into a new paradigm where all people are valued and where equity is finally established, how can we engage white men to be allies and even co-conspirators in the effort? This presentation will explore strategies for calling white men in to this work and getting them invested in dismantling the structures and cultures that have produced the inequity. This will also be a productive session for white men themselves, who have especially in the past three years, been wanting to practice allyship but lacking in the tools and the feelings of efficacy to do so.

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain a deep understanding of the ways that structures, cultures, and interactions include some groups and exclude others, sometimes in the most subtle of ways.
  • Explore our own biases and habits regarding identity, privilege, and biases that we may bring to DEI work.
  • Learn strategies for engaging white men (and others) in workplace DEI initiatives.
  • Add concrete tools to your toolkit of interactive inclusively with everyone and supporting truly inclusive and equitable workplaces.

The Five Things Your Employees Haven’t Told You (But You Wish They Had)
06/12/2023 11:40 AM - 12:10 PM HR Solutions Theatre (W4)

Presenter:
Laura Sherbin, Managing Director, Consulting, Seramount
Workplace Application:
Participants will learn 2-3 strategies of how listening directly to their employees have dramatically improved their overall workplace experience. 

When employers build workplace cultures and DEI programs based on guesswork, more often than not, different employee groups will excluded and their programs will fail. Employee Engagement Surveys and Focus Groups do not tell the full story or allow for an open dialogue and workplace culture decisions are not made based on the experiences of a 12-person focus group. Sure, it will give you data but and many employees don’t believe they are truly anonymous (so how honest are they actually being?). How can companies truly get the answers they are looking for from their employees? By listening differently. For over two years, Seramount has captured unparalleled insight into what employees need to thrive in their organization. By listening directly to them in an anonymous, psychologically safe setting, employees have been able to share their workplace experiences, struggles, successes, failures, and how they experience inclusion and exclusion. Our latest research will reveal what we have learned by listening directly to employees, across industries, and will distill the most important insights DEI and talent leaders need to succeed.

Attendees will walk away with:

- Why your engagement survey and focus group won’t get you the answers you need

- How to engage your employees in your workplace culture and DEI strategies though thoughtful listening

- Case studies that are designed to generate bold, practical ideas for your organization

Boomers, Millennials, Gen-Zers, Oh My! How to Manage a Multigenerational Workforce

Presenter:
Katie Oertli Mooney, Managing Director, Seramount
Workplace Application:
Strategies for managing a multi-generational workforce 

There’s a monumental shift in the talent landscape occurring. By 2025, millennials and Gen-Z will make up 64% of the global workforce. Gen-Z, the most racially diverse generation in U.S. history, values diversity, flexibility, fair wages, and happiness and wellbeing, and if an organization doesn’t share their values, the majority won’t apply to begin with, and those already employed have no problem leaving to find one that does. It will be a challenge for employers to attract and retain early career employees—especially underrepresented ones, and it is critical that companies implement cultural changes that will help foster and develop this next generation of talent. But it’s also important to balance this with their current workforce and equip people leaders with the skills necessary to manage a multi-generational team. How prepared are you and your organization to face what’s ahead? Join Seramount’s DEI and Talent expert to explore the benefits of an inclusive talent strategy.

- How metrics and analytics play a key role in an inclusive talent strategy

- Strategies for managing a multi-generational workforce

- Tactics in recruiting and retaining Gen-Z talent

- The importance of listening to your talent to better understand their needs

Workplace Application:
Strategies for responding to employee requests to correct personal information in personnel records. 

As the January 1, 2023, employees have new rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), including rights to request to access, delete, and correct the personal information an employer has collected from the employee. An employer's new obligations to respond to these requests create logistical challenges and pitfalls that businesses complying with CCPA requests from customers or visitors seldom face. Employers responding to employee requests must deal with large amounts of employee information, address legal obligations to maintain information for minimum amounts of time, best practices to maintain information in case of future litigation, and requirements to maintain accurate information about employees. In this presentation, attorneys from Fisher Phillips' Consumer Privacy Team will discuss the requirements related to receiving and responding to employee CCPA requests to access, delete, and correct, and best practices for responding to these difficult requests.

Learning Objectives:

  • Overview of the requirements for receiving, responding to, and complying with employee requests to access, delete, and correct.
  •  Strategies for responding to challenging employee requests to access and delete personal information.
  • Strategies for responding to employee requests to correct personal information in personnel records.

William David Wright, Partner, Fisher & Phillips LLP

This program helps employers comply with their legal obligations to protect employees from harassment and discrimination. 

Every employer will need to conduct a workplace investigation at some point, and an effective investigation can make the difference between a litigation-free resolution and a painstakingly long and costly lawsuit.

Harnessing Work Wellbeing In Recruitment
06/12/2023 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM W225

Presenter:
Kyle M.K., Talent Strategy Advisor, Indeed

The past few years have served as a wake-up call for employers as the workforce realized their satisfaction within a company goes far beyond a paycheck. This culture shift is pressuring organizations everywhere to figure out how to continue to get the job done when it’s clear that there is no “return to normal.”

Maybe that’s not a bad thing.

The wake-up has made us more empathetic to our people, and hopefully more connected to what makes them happy. As some organizations experience mass layoffs and broad-stroke budget cuts in preparation for a looming recession, HR leaders are faced with the mammoth task of guiding our organizations in a world where the bar is set higher.

At Indeed, we have risen to these higher expectations by relentlessly focusing on innovation that drives true performance across the board for our HR and Recruitment client partners. The days of wondering if employees are happy or fulfilled in their work are behind us. With our Work Wellbeing score you can glimpse into the minds of your most valuable asset, your people.

Key Takeaways:

Innovative companies are embracing work wellbeing as a new standard and scorecard to help them evaluate employee happiness, sense of purpose, stress, and satisfaction.

Increasing the number of people who are happy at work starts with reimagining the job seeker experience with your organization and how they perceive your company brand and reputation.

If you've ever heard 'you're just not quite ready' but never given steps to up your leadership game, this session is for you.   Many senior level HR professionals make the critical mistake of keeping their head down and assuming that their great work will get them elevated to the C-Suite.

  • Highlighting the strategic value you bring to the organization without alienating your co-workers.

Rethink the College to Career Pipeline in a Skills Based Economy

Presenter:
Janet Sellars, Director, Human Resources, NASA Kennedy Space Center
Presenter:
Lou Pugliese, Strategic Consultant, Founding CEO, Blackboard
Presenter:
Adam Wray, CEO & Founder, AstrumU
Workplace Application:
Institutions and Employers alike must re-evaluate the college to career pipeline in a skills based economy. 

The college degree is, in many respects, an imperfect tool for signaling a person's capabilities, let alone their long-term potential in the professional world. Employers are often left to do guesswork on a candidate's fitness for a role based on simplistic measures like standardized test scores, concentrations or majors, and transcripts. To fix this, higher education must rise to the challenge of defining and demonstrating the value of the college experience and quantifying the skills and abilities their graduates possess. Understanding why these connections - and disconnects - exist is crucial, so that colleges and employers can start to close such knowledge gaps. They also must share this information with employers so companies can better comprehend and utilize the talents of new college graduates. Today's world of work is an ever-evolving place that requires both institutions and employers to rethink the college to career pipeline.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain how technology can help you more easily connect data to what students are learning and to connect companies directly with potential employees - is also emerging.
  • Discuss how advances in machine learning can help institutions and employers accurately forecast the labor market value of the educational experiences they provide.
  • Equip students, advisors and employers with important information on how those experiences can translate to quantifiable and marketable skills.
  • Most industries hire for specific technical abilities rather than harder-to-measure soft skills and knowledge, like communication and problem-solving. Yet, many of the most successful executives in the technology industry have humanities backgrounds- yet we know next to nothing about how their college experiences led to these leadership roles.

What is the first thing you think of when you hear (or read) 'team building'? Why does team building, whether you spell it as one word or two, have such a negative connotation to so many? For those who are naturally active and/or outgoing, team building is often welcomed with open arms; however, for those who are introverted, and/or less athletically inclined, it's often a cause of hesitation, fear, and anxiety. By conducting a series of short surveys, Matt garnered the common opinions, and misconceptions, of what team building is, and he's sharing his findings, and solutions, with the world through his speaking engagements and his book, TAKE THE FEAR OUT OF TEAM BUILDING. Team building is more than zip lining, trust falls, and slide show presentations. Are you still feeling skeptical? It's time you participated in this interactive (yes, attendees will partake in some simple, communal activities), informative, and engaging presentation.

Learning Objectives:

  • Hear why 'team building' is not a 'bad word'.
  • Discover what positive team building experiences entail.
  • Remove fear and anxiety around both the words, and acts, of team building.
  • Learn when and how to host a productive team building experience beneficial to everyone on a team.
  • Discuss how team building may provide a 'mix up' of roles, responsibilities, & leadership opportunities.

The Powerful Correlation Between the Employee Experience and Business Outcomes

Competencies: Business (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral)

Presenter:
Kris Erickson, Co-Founder, Director of Consulting, WSA
Workplace Application:
Learn the latest trends impacting the employee experience and how to successfully link employee performance to financial performance metrics. 

REPEATED TUESDAY AT 10:30am

When organizations successfully connect the employee experience to business outcomes it's a game changer. Recent research from WSAdata shows a direct correlation between engagement and core financial metrics such as net profit margin, earnings per share, and EBITDA. The top 25% of organizations in engagement on average have a 54% gross profit margin whereas the bottom 25% have a 32% gross profit margin. WSA has proven 13.6% of the variance is attributed to engagement.  This data reaffirms the premise that engagement and performance drive business success−an essential connection to make as we encounter the unknowns and uncertainties of 2023. Understanding the levers that motivate and engage employees, and how sentiments and drivers change over time, is critical to aligning strategic imperatives with what matters most to employees.  This empowers organizations to accelerate performance and business at the same time-two elements that when driven in parallel have an enormous impact.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the global top drivers that have the greatest impact on employee motivation and engagement.
  • Understand the major trends of 2023 surrounding the employee experience based on the latest WSA-validated data and research.
  • Learn best practices and methods for linking employee engagement to employee performance.
  • Understand how to correlate gross profit margin and other specific financial metrics to engagement levels to transform engagement into a true driver of business outcomes.
  • How to build a reliable ROI measurement and impact of HR departments, practitioners, and leaders on business success.

Want Unlimited PTO? Things to Consider Before Implementing in Today's Workforce

Competencies: People (Technical), Workplace (Technical)

Presenter:
Marina Galatro, SHRM-SCP, Executive HR Consultant, HR Services, Newfront Insurance Services, LLC
Workplace Application:
Learn how to rethink your paid time off strategy - does it include an unlimited PTO program - if so, what should you consider before implementing. 

Companies are looking at ways to meet or exceed the now more than 30 different paid sick leave laws. The idea of unlimited paid time off (PTO) is still splashing through HR professionals' minds as an alternative way to beat the many paid sick leave laws and as a way to attract and retain talent. Need to go to Hawaii for five weeks? Yes, go -- it's paid time off! Need the afternoon off to watch your child in a school play? Sure, it's paid time off! Need a 'mental health' day or two (or five)? Why not -- it's paid time off! No questions asked. But before implementing such a program, there are some things to consider. Is it too much of a good thing? Will it improve morale and work-life balance? Is it a true total rewards element that attracts and retains top talent? What about employees who need an extended medical leave of absence? What about your remote workforce? 'Unlimited' may not really mean without limits.

Learning Objectives:

  • Why rethink paid time off?
  • What should you consider before implementing an unlimited paid time off program?
  • Does it really work for every organization?

Seeing Clearly: How to Help Your Employees Fully Benefit From Their Vision Plans
06/12/2023 02:30 PM - 03:00 PM HR Technology Theatre (W2)

Presenter:
Ryan VanOverbeke, CCO, XP Health

With their increased exposure to screens, it's no surprise employed American adults today experience more eye strain and blurred vision. And 94% of American workers say vision benefits are vital, according to Harris Poll data. Eye care coverage ranks third in importance behind medical and dental insurance but ahead of mental and dermatological health benefits. However, only 42% of workers are highly satisfied with their employer-sponsored vision plans. This costly disconnect is having a surprising impact on organizations.

In this session, you’ll discover:

- How remote work is negatively impacting employees’ eye health.

- Why workers aren’t using your vision benefits.

- What you can do to encourage employees to maximize vision benefits.

Are you aware of the key areas where you're vulnerable to litigation and how your screening firm may not prepare or protect you? Do you know what 'indemnification' really means? Have you ever wondered why your ATS provider 'really' only recommends their 'built in' screening partners? How about inflated claims about how many criminal records your screening firm is searching? Or maybe you receive FCRA 'sample' applicant forms that you can use at your own risk (and may not be up to date or compliant but they're just 'samples.') If you think you already know it all or have 'heard it all,' take a real look behind the scenes with Deb, test your knowledge and protect your company from unnecessary litigation.

  • Learn the key areas where you're vulnerable to litigation and your screening firm may not prepare or protect you, and how to do so.

Care Everywhere: Solving Specialty Care "Deserts" to Drive Health Equity, Outcomes, and Savings
06/12/2023 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM N233
Competencies: Business (Behavioral), People (Technical)

Presenter:
Peter Rasmussen, Chief Clinical Officer, Professor of Neurosurgery, The Clinic by Cleveland Clinic; Cleveland Clinic and Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine
Workplace Application:
Attendees will learn how leveraging technology to expand access to specialized medical expertise brings us one step closer to solving for health inequity and improving healthcare for employees.  

Specialty care “deserts” are a key factor driving the growing challenge of health inequity. By virtue of geography, people around the country lack access to the expertise needed to support them in their health journeys – today, more than one-third of Americans live in a county that does not offer adequate access to primary care providers, hospitals, pharmacies, or trauma centers. Access to a specialist who can meet the healthcare needs of a patient varies dramatically across states, and the situation is likely to become worse, as 100,000 physicians are projected to leave the medical profession by 2025.

Care providers recognize that care equity benefits everyone. Access to proactive and preventive care results in fewer acute episodes and hospital stays, making practices and health systems more efficient and cost-effective. Still, lack of access makes it challenging to schedule an appointment with the right specialist for a single opinion related to an employee’s (or their loved one’s) condition, let alone a second opinion to confirm the accuracy of a diagnosis or the suitability of a treatment plan.

Even when specialty expertise is available locally, an appointment with a specialist can take weeks or even months to confirm, and gathering the necessary medical records can be complicated and time-consuming. As employees balance other obligations, such as work and/or caring for their family, finding the time to consult with an expert physician can be difficult.

Many people are uncertain where to find an appropriate specialist for their case or are faced with long travel distances to obtain an in-person consultation. In these cases, virtual opportunities can make a significant difference. Virtual care facilitates connections to the right specialist at the right time by removing geographical constraints to specialty physician visits.

With digital advancements in care delivery, individuals can receive consultation for their health needs, no matter how long they’ve been dealing with them or where they live. Technological advancements are opening the door to high quality medical expertise on complex conditions—anywhere in the country or the world. Virtual programs offer the advantage of not having to leave home and can also relieve employees of the complex and time-consuming efforts required to gather medical records from multiple sources.

Learning Objectives:

  • The impact of specialty care deserts on health equity for employees across diverse geographic locations.
  • The role of virtual health in complementing and enhancing traditional healthcare services.
  • The tangible benefits of leveraging technology to expand access to medical expertise, including reduced healthcare costs and improved health outcomes.
  • New strategies to tackle rising health spend, innovate to meet the needs and expectations of today’s employees, and more effectively manage workforce health.

Making difficult decisions requires wisdom, and this session gives a framework and structure that HR professionals can follow to be ethical. 

REPEATED ON TUESDAY AT 3:30pm

Making Tough Decisions in a Fast Paced World.  Getting ethics right is a big deal, and ethics often requires courage.  Human Resources practitioners are often standing alone in confronting tough situations.  This facilitated discussion goes beyond a lecture on ethical principles - it is a series of case studies that offer participants 'real time' practice in resolving dilemmas, with participants sharpening their critical thinking skills.    Ethics is a truly human function - based on you caring that the outcome for others is best for them, and that the net result is the best for you.  After all, ethics is not blind impartiality, doling out right and wrong according to some canon of ancient law. It's a warm and supremely human activity that cares enough for others to want right to prevail.  This session will reduce the fear level in HR practitioners and enable better decisions.

Learning Objectives:

  • The new world of Critical Thinking and Ethics under COVID pressure.
  • Resolving Ethical Dilemmas under pressure.
  • Kidder's nine steps for decision-making, a logical pattern that applies to our current situation.

Drew Lewis, Vice President, Global Diversity and Talent, ADP
Workplace Application:
Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of how to maintain DEI programs and eliminate fatigue around the topic. 

Now more than ever, employers are prioritizing diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) as a path to attracting and retaining top talent. Today's data-driven DEI tactics are fueling progress, empowering teams and enabling more inclusive environments. But how can people leaders maintain momentum in an increasingly noisy world of work? This session examines new ways to sustain and nurture DEI initiatives without losing steam.

Learning Objectives:

How a robust DEI program leads to attracting and retaining top talent: ADP research found that 76% of workers would look for a new job if they discovered their company lacked a DEI program. Employees care that their organizations are prioritizing DEI, and diverting attention away from DEI initiatives can cause higher turnover. Remembering that DEI leads to retention and finding the best people will help organizations keep up DEI initiatives.   Setting and tracking metrics that help goals feel more achievable: It's no surprise that tracking DEI metrics are important when it comes to measuring progress, but making goals can also make the overall goal of a more diverse and inclusive workforce feel less daunting. Instead of only setting an ambitious 20-year goal, having smaller more incremental goals that can be measured along the way will not only help keep organizations on track, but allow them to see the incremental progress along the way.   Effective ways to hold leaders accountable for achieving DEI goals: When leaders give periodic business updates, ensure that DEI is part of that conversation. Having leaders give consistent updates on how a company is tracking against DEI goals helps to hold the company accountable and keep employees informed. It can also be a moment to celebrate any wins on the DEI front and mobilize employees to help with DEI initiatives and recruiting efforts.   How to create open dialogue and more productive DEI trainings: Recruiting and hiring more diverse talent is imperative but continuing to have open conversations and trainings on DEI is also crucial. Ongoing conversations not only keeps the topic top of mind for employees and leaders, but it also helps to normalize the topic in everyday work and keeps up the momentum of prioritizing DEI.

The Art of Leadership Defense -- Verbal and Documented Disciplinary Interventions

Presenter:
Paul Falcone, Principal, Paul Falcone Workplace Leadership Consulting, LLC
Workplace Application:
Verbal and documented disciplinary interventions can turn around problematic employee performance/conduct and minimize employment-related liability. 

REPEATED TUESDAY AT 7:30am

The path of least resistance is avoidance, and many managers shy away from potentially confrontational discussions with or disciplinary actions for their employees. Further, they tend to engage in grade inflation during annual performance reviews and avoid formal corrective action for fear of angering or demotivating their staffers--or possibly to be the 'good guy' who turns a blind eye to both performance and conduct challenges.  But it doesn't have to be that way.

Learning Objectives:

  • Constructive conversations that demand greater accountability and employee awareness, both in terms of performance and conduct.
  • Formal progressive disciplinary documentation techniques to reset expectations and accord due process.
  • Structuring terminations and/or layoffs based on the written record at hand.

The annual Nonprofit Talent Management Priorities Survey is a signature report that assesses and reveals what the nonprofit sector is most concerned about regarding managing its people resources.

Form I-9 and E-Verify compliance is an ever-moving target and mistakes can be costly. From Form I-9 updates, remote verifications, E-Verify state requirements, and more, HR can lose a lot of sleep trying to keep up. In this session, John Fay takes a deep dive into several, often surprising, I-9 and E-Verify risks and 3 best practice strategies to help you take the stress out of paperwork and trade admin for action.

BYOA: Elevating Your Confidence, Courage and Clarity to Amplify Your Career

Competencies: Interpersonal (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral)

Presenter:
Rachel Druckenmiller, Founder and CEO, Unmuted LLC
Workplace Application:
Empower and equip HR leaders to advocate for themselves and their needs, thoughts, wants and ideas as much as they do for the people they lead. 

As HR leaders, we are confident and skilled at advocating for other people, supporting their needs, wants, growth and dreams. But many of us don't tap into that same courage when it comes to elevating and celebrating ourselves. It's one of the reasons HR leaders tend to be so burned out, checked out and even resentful. Too many of us self-silence and hold ourselves back. We let doubts and insecurities dictate what we do. As a result, we don't have as much influence as we could at work or peace as we could at home. It's time to change that. If we've learned anything over the past few years, it's that the role of HR is more essential than ever, so let's act like that's true. It's time to step into our strengths, activate the power of confident humility, catalyze curiosity, and speak up about what we think, want and need, so that we are as fulfilled and successful as the people we lead.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discover specific strategies and prompts to help you illuminate your strengths and contributions and those of the people you lead, so you can be a more empowered, confident leader who has greater impact.
  • Identify how you're holding yourself back or doubting yourself at work and clarify specific ways to advocate for yourself instead.
  • Learn conversation prompts that you can use in conversations with other leaders on your team to.
  • Activate the power of self-compassion and wisdom to make decisions at work and at home that lead to greater alignment, peace and harmony in your life and career.
  • Shift from living a life of regret to a life of intentional boldness marked by greater fulfillment and courage both personally and professionally.

Combatting Implicit Bias - Make Your Leaders Aware of What They Do Not Acknowledge
06/13/2023 07:30 AM - 08:30 AM N249
Competencies: Interpersonal (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral)

Presenter:
Michael S. Cohen, J.D., Partner, Duane Morris, LLP
Workplace Application:
Attendees will leave this session appreciating the dangers associated with implicit bias as well with practical strategies to move beyond awareness. 

We all know that it is unlawful-and bad business-to consider an applicant's or employee's gender, race, color, religion, etc. in making a hiring or promotion decision. But sometimes we do so implicitly-that is, without conscious awareness. This may raise legal issues and it most certainly raises business/HR issues. This session focuses on types of implicit bias that may infect hiring and promotional processes. Tests to uncover implicit bias also are explored, as well as the sometimes unconsidered risks of those tests. The training includes a discussion of options to help bring unconscious bias to conscious awareness without creating discoverable data that can be used against the organization. Because promotions are often tied to evaluations, particular attention will be paid to implicit bias in appraisals.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand where implicit bias comes from and those sources which inform such biases.
  • Appreciate the different kinds of implicit biases which impact and infect our decision-making.
  • Move beyond awareness and develop strategies to combat implicit bias and to mitigate against such bias in business processes.

Formulas increase the likelihood of success and this session will provide the needed formula for productive DEI conversations.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the formula for conversational competence that can be used in many scenarios.
  • Hear what you should be talking about related to DEI.
  • Discover how to guide others through difficult conversations.

Marijuana, CBD and Hemp Derivatives in the Workplace

Presenter:
Mary Celeste, Professor, Judge Mary A. Celeste (ret.), LLC
Workplace Application:
Attendees will be able to analyze the legal differences between marijuana CBD and hemp derivatives and their impact on workplace testing and policies. 

While marijuana remains federally illegal under the Control Substances Act, 38 states have legalized medical marijuana and 18 states have legalized recreational marijuana. This piecemeal state legalization along with the removal of hemp from the Control Substances Act (CSA) due to the passage of the Agriculture Improvement Act more commonly known as the 2018 Farm Bill, has led to the propagation of CBD and other hemp derivatives such as Delta 8 and Delta 10. This has caused a legal conundrum for the workplace and confusion for the human resource professional.  The testing and labeling of CBD and hemp derivative products are confusing and impacting employees in the workplace. Testing for these products may create a false positive or negative lab result and employees who believed that they were using legal products are testing positive for illegal Delta 9 THC.  A 'CBD Oracle Lab Study shows some Delta-8 products Are 7700% over the legal Delta-9 THC limit which still remains illegal.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the differences between marijuana, CBD and hemp derivatives.
  • Identify developing appellate case and statutory laws regarding the use of medical marijuana, CBD and hemp derivatives across the country.
  • Identify the legal status for the use of medical marijuana in the workplace across the country.
  • Analyze how CBD and hemp derivations are causing confusion in laboratories and testing.
  • Analyze how CBD and hemp derivative products are falsely labeled.
  • Identify potential workplace policy considerations for the use of medical marijuana, CBD and hemp derivatives in the workplace.

For most organizations, regardless of sector or industry, identifying the root causes of disparities and exclusionary behavior associated with gender is difficult to identify and challenging to eliminate. Based on a survey and personal interviews conducted by the Center for Creative Leadership, the National University System discovered it had a 'gender blind spot' at the senior and executive leadership levels. NUS used this information to identify the root source of the problem and committed to creating more significant equity and inclusion for women in the organization. The presentation will highlight the intentional steps NUS took with the support of CCL to address the opportunities and challenges associated with overcoming gender bias. The presentation will highlight our best practices for managing the gender-blind spot. Regardless of sector or industry, senior and executive leaders will find this presentation very enlightening.

Learning Objectives:

  • Strategies for identifying gender bias or blind spots at the leadership level;
  • The opportunities and challenges associated with addressing gender bias;
  • What it takes to lay a sustainable DEI foundation at the leadership levels;
  • How to measure or assess short and long-term success; and
  • Other insights and recommendations to help establish an inclusive and equitable work environment for women.

Presenter:
G. Riley Mills, Co-Founder & COO, Pinnacle Performance Company

Communication is the key to engaging and retaining workforce, running effective meetings, delivering presentations, and supporting collaborations. 

The U.S. is currently in a workforce engagement crisis - according to Gallup, for the first year in more than a decade, the percentage of engaged workers in the U.S. declined down to 34%.  To solve today's most pressing people issues and strategies, HR professionals must address this dilemma.  This session will demonstrate just how critical communication is in engaging and retaining an organization's workforce, running effective meetings, delivering compelling presentations, and ensuring productive collaborations.  A 2019 Harvard Study also showed that, '90% admitted to daydreaming in meetings.'  This session holds the key to engagement and will demonstrate the secret communication techniques leaders and professional performers have used for centuries to influence emotion to motivate action.

Learning Objectives:

  • How to drive engagement and motivate action by influencing emotion.
  • How to clearly communicate your message to influence engagement by aligning your voice and body language.
  • How to improve how you provide feedback, lead efficient meetings, and / or deliver critical information using a universal three-step process for influential communication.

The Art of Leadership Defense -- Verbal and Documented Disciplinary Interventions

Competencies: Interpersonal (Behavioral), Organization (Technical), Workplace (Technical)

Presenter:
Paul Falcone, Principal, Paul Falcone Workplace Leadership Consulting, LLC

REPEATED FROM MONDAY AT 3:00pm

The path of least resistance is avoidance, and many managers shy away from potentially confrontational discussions with or disciplinary actions for their employees. Further, they tend to engage in grade inflation during annual performance reviews and avoid formal corrective action for fear of angering or demotivating their staffers--or possibly to be the 'good guy' who turns a blind eye to both performance and conduct challenges.  But it doesn't have to be that way.

Learning Objectives:

  • Constructive conversations that demand greater accountability and employee awareness, both in terms of performance and conduct.
  • Formal progressive disciplinary documentation techniques to reset expectations and accord due process.
  • Structuring terminations and/or layoffs based on the written record at hand.

Competencies: Business (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral), People (Technical)

Discover data, perspectives, and patterns in the top 25 problems from 150+ worldwide organizations-and then troubleshoot to develop solutions. 

Rapidly-evolving technologies, social media influences, the speed of social progress, disruptive business models, the pandemic, remote work, and the great resignation. The world as we knew it is gone. The time in between generations is shrinking. 'Google it' is outdated. In a matter of two decades, we went from Google to YouTube to TikTok. (Some of you were Today Years Old when you found that out.) Our organizational culture and strategy must keep up with the pace of these shifts and we need to check in with our people at every level as we go forward.  An average YouTube video is 11.7 minutes; TikTok is 27.5 seconds. That's how quickly people are learning new information, being marketed to, and forming opinions. That's also how quickly people in your organizations are sharing information, marketing, and changing opinions when it comes to your company. And all of their perspectives are correct, so let's start listening!

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss what Executive Teams, Leaders, Managers, and Employees are saying are their top problems at your company.
  • Review the symptoms and work together to get to the root of the problems.
  • Develop a plan of action to solve the problems, starting with the most universal issue impacting the departments, teams, and individuals.

Competencies: Leadership (Behavioral), People (Technical)

Presenter:
Thomas Ryan Davis , Founder , Take Flight Leadership
Workplace Application:
When leaders make organizational culture their primary focus, employee engagement, retention, and performance skyrocket. 

VP-47 was down on their luck.  Two Commanding Officers were fired for personal misconduct.  The disgraced Skippers represented the tip of the iceberg; a squadron mired in management misconduct and failed leadership.  One year later the Sailors at VP-47 took command of their destiny, and their efforts ranked the squadron #1 in morale, leadership, and communications.  Cultivating culture through trust, teamwork, purpose, and ownership was essential in VP-47's rise to the top.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand that organizational culture's impact on employee performance is profound and is completely within the control of the leader.
  • Establishing trust is ultimately the leader's responsibility and will require the leader to get uncomfortable during intentional efforts to show care.
  • Encourage teamwork by creating opportunities for your employees to come together, policies to keep them together, and incentives to encourage them to work together.
  • Link your employees' purpose to our unknown desire to serve others.
  • Leverage the power of ownership by communicating what success looks like and letting your employees chart the course.

Attendees will obtain a tool kit to foster cultures of belonging by eradicating imposter syndrome at both the interpersonal and organizational levels. 

Did you know data shows imposter syndrome disproportionately affects underrepresented groups? Many discussions about imposter syndrome focus on how an individual can recover from it, but few focus on the examination of work cultures and how they may be perpetuating imposter syndrome. Michelle is a Hispanic woman in Tech and Miguel served as the first civilian Chief of D&I in the history of the Coast Guard. Together they bring an explosive combination of experiences and strategies to equip HR leaders with the right tools to implement sustainable, systemic solutions to ensure work is a place where everyone can thrive. This session will identify specific actions you can take to create a sense of belonging. You will learn specific steps that can help you facilitate the right workplace interventions and take a 'both/and' approach to meeting your employees' unique needs while also making the organizational shifts required to address imposter syndrome at its true source.

Learning Objectives:

  • Analyzing/studying the statistics on the negative impacts of imposter syndrome in workplace belongingness.
  • Applying the four strategies within the T.A.M.E framework to end imposter syndrome at work.
  • Understand the toxic workplace behaviors and customs that lead to feelings of fraud in your employees.

Insecurity is the plague of the soul. Learn how to extract it from their being, fostering confidence in every area of life, even their weaknesses. 

You have several areas of suckage in your life that will remain permanently. We all wish the weaknesses in our lives would just go away, but they do not. Unfortunately, that's the place insecurity latches onto, creating inaccurate perceptions and debilitating internal dialogue. We never acknowledge it with our colleagues but it's contributed to significantly more bad communication than any other factor.

Insecurity's mantra is "You're Not Enough."

Confidence isn't just the opposite of insecurity, it's the tool we utilize to extract it from our life. The three Ingredients of Confidence - Trust, Humility & Belief - work together to remove the lies of insecurity. Once siphoned from our soul, confidence remains behind in its' place. Thus giving us confidence even where we are weak!

Learning Objectives:

  • Create an understanding of how mean and dastardly insecurity is.
  • Learn how a karaoke bar factors in to your freedom.
  • Recognize the consequences of unaddressed insecurities in work life.
  • Learn to be confident in every situation!

Competencies: Business (Behavioral), Workplace (Technical)

Presenter:
Jason Nathaniel Sheffield, National Director of Compliance, Baldwin Risk Partners
Workplace Application:
This program will introduce participants to the legal and regulatory requirements of MHPAEA, offering actionable and easily understandable guidance. 

As reported in the DOL's first MHPAEA enforcement report to Congress in 2022, the DOL's Employee Benefits Security Administration offered details respecting hundreds of private employer MHPAEA compliance audits conducted by the agency in 2020. Disturbingly, not one employer audited was able to demonstrate substantive compliance with the law's requirements. This program is designed to provide intermediate and advanced HR practitioners with a practical and actionable survey of MHPAEA's requirements. Participants will survey compliant plan design schematics respecting both Quantitative Treatment Limitations ('QTL's') and Non-quantitative Treatment Limitations ('NQTL's'). Participants will also review requirements related to the employer's NQTL comparative analysis obligations. Finally, program participants will review the plan-level participant and beneficiary directed responsive communication requirements for employers responding MHPAEA related claims and coverage issues.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand and apply the concepts underlying MHPAEA, including, without limitation, mental health parity, substance use disorder parity, classification of plan-level benefits, identification of prohibited QTL's and NQTL's within a specific benefit plan; and, specific benefit testing rules;
  • Learn to identify and interpret regulatory compliance obligations respecting the plan-level administration of QTL's and NQTL's, both as written and as in actual operation of the underlying benefit plan;
  • Survey and apply the components of the DOL's required comparative analysis of NQTL's across the six (6) permitted classifications of plan-level benefits;
  • Review and understand MHPAEA's required participant and beneficiary communication requirements related to plan-level covered services and benefit claims arising in the mental health and substance use disorder context; and,
  • Review and understand the enforcement protocols and various interdiction levers available to the DOL, HHS and state-level insurance and regulatory bodies, respecting MHPAEA compliance obligations for the employer benefit plan sponsor.

REPEATED FROM MONDAY AT 10:30am

It seems like we receive an FMLA request almost every day anymore. Continuous leaves are, generally, simple to deal with and very straight forward - it's hard to 'fake' an appendicitis! Intermittent FMLA, on the other hand, is an automatic, cringe worthy event. This session is designed to help the
