Participants will reverse-engineer the ultimate training experiences to create real measurable results in personal and team development. 

Room location: Refer to your ticket printed at Attendee Services for the session room location.

Content is not king (and it never really was). We don't teach content; we teach people. Training sessions should bring the content to life and people should feel more excited about the material when they walk out of the session. Sadly, this is not typically the case. People are drowning in all of the content that is available since the Internet arrived in 1995. It's time for an update and as an organizational leader, it's your responsibility to move your training culture into the future. During this session, you'll experience (not just hear about) how to improve recruitment, retention, and succession planning. Let us help you discover a proven approach to boost performance, leadership, and organizational culture.

Fill in the blank: Most trainings ______. If you said 'are boring,' 'are ineffective,' or 'suck,' then we are in total agreement and something has to change...especially after COVID and now that we are also engaging with our people remotely! Make Training A Want To (Not A Have To) gives you the insight and tools to reverse engineer the ultimate training in order to facilitate learning experiences that create measurable results with your people and compelling reasons to apply the learning. Why does training have to be different? Because people learn in the spaces in between life. Don't you have your best ideas in meditation, in the shower, while driving, or falling asleep?! We can't deliver lectures to learners anymore; that's not how people learn. This experience is designed as a workshop to help you redesign your training programs to engage and energize your learners while creating immediate and lasting impact in the organization. This changes everything.

Learning Objectives: Participants will be empowered to co-create a dynamic learning experience, one that is the opposite of the typical lecture.Participants will then reverse-engineer the ultimate training experiences to create real measurable results in personal and team development.Participants will leave with a breakthrough action plan for the next quarter to rethink, rebuild, and reinforce your organizational culture.

On the heels of the mental health crisis, alcohol and substance use disorders (SUDs) have intensified during the pandemic and transition back to work.

About 27 million –– 1 in every 6 –– working-age Americans now struggle with substance use disorders (SUDs) –– a 23% jump compared to pre-pandemic. About one-third of employers say alcohol is a problem in their workforce, and one-fourth say they are concerned about opioids or other SUDs among employees.

As businesses nationwide face rising costs of employee health care in 2024, substance use and addiction contribute to incurred costs of up to $532 billion per year for American companies and society. 64% of employers are enhancing health and well-being resources –– yet, less than 10% of employees are receiving treatment for addiction. So, why aren’t employees getting the help they need?

The barrier of stigma. Offering resources is only helpful to employees who feel comfortable enough to ask for help. Stigma around SUD in the workplace and in society poses a major hurdle for employees seeking assistance as they undergo treatment and pursue recovery.

In this session, you’ll hear the personal stories of employees struggling with addiction while wrestling the equally heavy burden of stigma at work. Learn how judgmental, stigmatizing language and actions from employers and colleagues can amplify the internal shame and anguish felt by those dealing with the chronic, treatable medical condition of SUD. You’ll also learn how stigmatizing behaviors at work can cause extreme isolation and heightened mental health concerns –– even the risk of suicide, making it nearly impossible for these employees to even imagine seeking help.

Learning Objectives:

  • Hear from an exemplary company that has transformed its workplace to be more inclusive, positive and supportive for employees struggling with SUDs.
  • Illustrate how best-in-class companies are banishing stigma and training employees to do the same.

CEOs speak the business language of goals, costs, and accountabilies, yet most HR executives continue to 'solve' turnover and engagement with traditional one-size-fits-all implementations like pay, benefits, and responses to engagement and exit surveys. This session includes research that first-line leaders are the greatest causes of turnover, retention, and engagement along with a specific 5-step process to move retention and engagement accountability from HR to operations executives and their management teams...where it has always belonged.

Learning Objectives: Learn how to partner with finance to place dollar values on employee turnover. Analyze data that results in establishing both new-hire and annual retention goals...and proving in most organizations that cutting new-hire turnover is the key to improving overall turnover. Combine costing turnover, forecasting turnover and applying other business-driven methods will lead their executives to establish first-line leader retention goals and accountabilities.

"Employee Engagement? In THIS Economy??" ‐‐ Maximizing Motivation Beyond Money

As we assume new responsibilities that come with our leadership roles, one of the most magical discoveries we make is our ability to effectively empower and build up others, and ourselves, through successful motivation. Whether working with the highest performers or ones with room for growth, smart leaders are constantly contemplating how to engage their teams and motivate them to succeed. Too often we rely on external rewards - like motivating a horse to run with the carrot on a stick - yet these can only work for so long. The people and projects we lead require different motivation styles and, as a leader, we have an obligation to customize our approach to maximize each individual's intrinsic motivation. In this session, we'll explore the building blocks of successful communication to enhance individual motivation and team engagement.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discover the three types of motivation.
  • Determine specific strategies to create an environment where intrinsic motivation is especially high.
  • Reflect on current leadership practices, and apply new theories to enhance personal leadership.
  • Establish a stronger community of like-minded individuals and rising thought-leaders.
  • Develop an action plan to implement key lessons into project leadership.

How to know if you are hiring the right people: AI and automation in talent acquisition and mobility. 

Seating Instructions: Seating is first-come, first-served. Reserved seating options are available for accessibility and accommodations. For detailed accessibility information, visit INFO > FAQs in the app.

Traditional hiring methods are outdated and broken - a sentiment echoed by job candidates and employers worldwide. In the US, there are nearly two jobs for every candidate, experienced employees are aging out of the workforce, the accelerating pace of change at work and the explosive emergence of new skills and jobs mean companies are falling even further behind. With a shortage of quality candidates, employers need to streamline their process to attract talent and hire those with potential who can grow on a career path rather than just a job. We need a dramatically different approach to answer the question 'are we hiring the right people?' This presentation will show how AI allows us to understand the changing world of work - how jobs are related and what skills people need to develop to adapt. Rather than relying on what jobs a candidate has done in the past ('rearview recruiting'), we can assess for what they are capable of. Allowing candidates to showcase their personality traits, skills, and interests drives better candidate fit, improved performance, and retention.

Learning Objectives:

  • Current uses of AI in talent acquisition.
  • Where the space is going with Generative AI.
  • How we can leverage the right kind of assessments to measure potential.
  • How to get away from 'review recruiting'.
  • How AI can actually improve fairness.

Seating Instructions: Seating is first-come, first-served. Reserved seating options are available for accessibility and accommodations. For detailed accessibility information, visit INFO > FAQs in the app.

The last several years have brought unforeseen disruption and uncertainty that continues to evolve when it comes to the future of our organizations and economy, not just our work. Whether changing dynamics in what customers really need and want to economic and societal instability to what employees really want from their careers and lives. HR, Talent, OD, and L&D leaders are facing historic challenges in what the real priorities are, how we navigate an extremely competitive talent landscape, manage an exhausted workforce, and pressure to control costs.  

To turn this around requires more than just hiring and training great people based on their job expectations and then holding them accountable during their year-end review. Through our work with over 150 companies in leading transformation from turnarounds to hyper growth and exhaustive research over the past three years, we will learn and immerse in the seven critical shifts and the necessary alignment we need in order to achieve what's Really Most Important now and for the long term transformation of our organizations.

Learning Objectives: Shifts: Immerse into the seven critical shifts we must make as HR/Talent/L&D enterprises to lead the future of your organizations. Prioritize purpose over priorities. Foster ownership instead of engagement. Be an embedded partner instead of an order taker. Build capability rather than talent or skill. Emphasize value creation over job responsibilities. Focus on impact and revenue generation rather than metrics and being a cost center. Promote total well-being for employees instead of just managing their stress.

Alignment: Align the seven critical shifts with the strategic priorities of your organization to forge inclusive solutions for both your customers and employees at the same time.

Transformation: Achieve accountability and urgency organization wide to the critical objectives that exist today while building long-term enterprise value-no matter the scale of your initiatives.

GenZ accounts for nearly 30% of today's workforce, and workers over age 55 encompass another 25%. One group is proficient in technology, while the other is well-versed in interpersonal dynamics and office politics.

Or so we are told.  We'll examine these demeaning stereotypes, acknowledge that while there is some grain of truth to them, they do not serve the modern corporation well. As GenX becomes the leaders of the 21st century organization, what can YOU do, in whatever age group you belong to, to increase your personal effectiveness and that of your company? You'll be surprised at what you'll find out.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn that there are fewer differences between the generations than has been believed.
  • Understand how members of each generation can help members of other generations improve their skill sets.
  • Understand the challenges you face when working with other generations.
  • Give you the skills necessary to enable you to work more effectively with those of other generations.
  • Improve organizational effectiveness and communication across the generations.

In this session, attendees will hear from Jennifer Malinowki, MS, PhD, and Rebecca (Becki) Hulinsky, MS, CGC, as they delve into the transformative potential of Cell and Gene Therapies (CGTs). These therapies are reshaping the healthcare landscape with their targeted approach to treating diseases, improving health outcomes, and in certain cases, offering cures.  The session will highlight the benefits of including CGT coverage in employer health plans. Such inclusion can serve as a significant benefit, attracting and retaining top talent while promoting better health outcomes for employees. CGTs are distinct from traditional therapies as they address diseases at their genetic or cellular level, rather than merely managing symptoms. By modifying a patient's cells or genes, these therapies can potentially cure or significantly alleviate certain conditions, offering hope to patients who were previously without effective treatment options. Of course, the introduction of CGTs into the healthcare landscape is not without its challenges. These primarily revolve around manufacturing complexities and ensuring accessibility for all who could benefit from them. Employers can play a pivotal role in making these innovative therapies more accessible and available. Join us as we delve into the groundbreaking world of CGTs, explore the patient experience, and discuss the essential role of employers in this new healthcare landscape. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn about the crucial role employers can play in making CGTs more accessible and the benefits they stand to gain by including CGT coverage in their health plans.
  • Navigate the patient journey and experience pre- and post-CGT treatment.

How can companies truly understand their employees' needs? By listening differently. Seramount’s Employee Voice Sessions provide unmatched insights into what employees need to thrive by listening to them in an anonymous, psychologically safe environment. This approach enables employees to openly share their challenges, successes, and perspectives on their experience in the workplace.

Reimagining a Thriving Workforce by Building Resilience
06/24/2024 12:00 PM - 12:30 PM HR Solutions Theater, South Building - Level 3, Hall A (MPCC)
Competencies: Business (Behavioral), Interpersonal (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral)

Presenter:
Davida Rivens, Managing Director, Growth & Development, E4E Relief

Seating Instructions: Seating is first-come, first-served. Reserved seating options are available for accessibility and accommodations. For detailed accessibility information, visit INFO > FAQs in the app.

A thriving workforce is a shared goal among all HR leaders. It is a unique time where there are more generations in the workplace than ever before and leaders' abilities to reimagine and reposition their offerings is the order of the day.

 

An organization’s ability to offer turnkey solutions that add immediate and long-term value and contribute positively to their well-being is paramount. Creating workplaces that are intentional in their commitment to add value beyond a paycheck is the thoughtful precipice of a more resilient workforce.

 

The reality is there has never been a more critical time for HR professionals to, not only be innovative, but also malleable, as it relates to the well-being needs of the up to six generations currently comprising the workforce. 

 

Questions we can consider together include:

  • How do you define a resilient workforce?
  • How do you reimagine total rewards that employees actually want and incentivize them to engage in the programs available to them?
  • How do you respond to the internal and external influences that threaten resilience? 

 

A workplace increases its resilience when a holistic well-being approach is part of a traditional benefits program. From a social perspective, the favorable results include reduced individual stress and increased focus. Likewise, business wins can include authentic goodwill efforts, gaining employee loyalty and productivity. 

 

Join E4E Relief’s Managing Director, Growth and Development, Davida Rivens, as she examines both the root (hindrances to resilience) and the fruit (the short- and long-term results of a truly resilient workforce) on the proverbial tree of workplace resilience and offers practical application takeaways that can be implemented right away. 

 

There is a distinct paradigm shift with respect to how stress is managed among workforces and why thriving – rather than simply surviving – is not just about the bottom line; it’s about the betterment of people. The genesis of the business resilience conversation is based on the conviction that prioritizing workforce well-being is no longer a nice-to-have. It’s the new non-negotiable.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Assess the root causes of resilience deficiencies
  • Be intentional and creative with communication about the company’s investment in their workforce’s well-being
  • Communicate with compassion

  • How we can and must pierce the 'paper ceiling' that arbitrarily holds back people without conventional college degrees.

  • The soulful recipe for inclusive cultures of belonging: patience, a sense of adventure, vulnerability, humility, compassion and playfulness.

Learning Objectives:

  • To be able to identify the mired and conflicted communication snags in conflict management within an organization.
  • To be able to define what forgiveness (in a business context) is and isn't.
  • To be able to practice functional forgiveness as a methodology in conflict resolution and in sustained, healthy internal communication.

Repeated on Tuesday at 2:00pm

Who's exempt? Who's an employee versus an independent contractor? Are you a joint employer? What are the penalties for errors? These and other issues have recently undergone major regulatory and policy reforms. This program will provide an overview of these developments and best practices for responding to them. In addition, the program will address some errors that, despite their best intentions, employers all too commonly make with respect to overtime compliance, determining who's exempt, what time is compensable, and nuances regarding calculating overtime pay. Knowing more on these topics and understanding what needs to be audited and modified will allow employers to better conform to the complex and ever-evolving rules regarding overtime, and thereby lessen -- if not avoid -- avoidable and substantial liability due to noncompliance.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding new and pending FLSA regulations and the latest on their legal status, as well as the DOL's current FLSA enforcement initiatives.
  • Appreciating mistakes commonly made by employers with respect to overtime compliance, and thereby getting a better a sense as to issues to watch out for while developing and administrating pay and payroll policies.
  • Learning steps employers can take to avoid, or at least minimize their exposure to, common overtime pay violations by knowing what to look for while auditing policies and practices and then modifying them to better conform to the law.

Wellness Session, Banish Organizational Burnout to Cultivate Thriving Teams

Presenter:

We are in a burnout crisis. Some estimates put burnout at 79%. Gallup and Mayo Clinic cite several causes of burnout, including unmanageable workloads and deadlines, lack of role clarity, lack of communication, inadequate support from managers, unreasonable time pressures, lack of control, and insufficient rewards for effort. When employees are stressed or burned out, they quit, leaving a huge hole in productivity, which impacts the bottom line. 

In this lively, interactive program, we will identify the areas that need to change from the top down, with a culture that focuses on the values and policies that put well-being front and center. We will help managers understand how to incorporate a focus on well-being and burnout prevention into their management style, using real-life examples to help them become the managers no one wants to leave.

  • Actionable steps to empower your people managers to drive performance and engagement
  • The critical role consistent feedback, both positive and constructive, plays in enabling high performance.

Many family members can see the negative impact and consequences of addiction on their loved ones, but find it difficult to see the depth of how they've been affected. If families aren't getting support for themselves, the fear that they've had about their loved one finding recovery often becomes fear about whether or not their loved one will maintain it. Without an understanding of the disease, families often end up reacting as they did when their loved one was still in active addiction.  This session will look at how families are affected by the disease of addiction, how to help these families find support for themselves, and will provide useful resources available to assist HR Professionals in helping those within their organization who are living this experience.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss obstacles to families finding recovery.
  • Describe the similar symptoms of addiction that families experience, as well as their loved ones.
  • Report and collaborate on resources available to family members who have a loved one who struggles with addiction.

This presentation will dig deeper into the differences between qualified and nonqualified retirement plans. 

Seating Instructions: Seating is first-come, first-served. Reserved seating options are available for accessibility and accommodations. For detailed accessibility information, visit INFO > FAQs in the app.

Nonqualified plans have become increasingly important in the last 18 to 24 months. Employers need new and inventive ways to attract, retain and incentivize highly compensated and key management employees.  One of the biggest (and most overlooked) differences between qualified and nonqualified plans is the lack of a 'due diligence framework' on the nonqualified plan side. In the world of nonqualified plan, you and your plan committee are required to meet regularly, and to comply with various fee disclosure, notice requirements, etc.   In the world of nonqualified plans, there's a tremendous amount of flexibility, but due diligence is still imperative to make sure plan sponsors comply with applicable law.   The purpose of this presentation is to identify nonqualified plan due diligence needs and develop a related framework and support system.

Learning Objectives:

  • What is a nonqualified deferred compensation plan and how does it defer from a qualified retirement plan?
  • What are the related advantages for employers and employees?
  • What are the due diligence requirements for nonqualified plan sponsors?
  • How can these types of plans provide a significant value add to employers?
  • What are the key due diligence considerations?

FLSA's New Minimum Salary Requirements: Strategic and Tactical Implementation Issues
06/24/2024 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM Regency Ballroom, Level 2 (Hyatt Regency)
Competencies: Business (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral), People (Technical)

Workplace Application:
Attendees will learn about the new rule increasing the minimum salary to meet the white collar exemptions under the FLSA. 

Seating Instructions: Seating is first-come, first-served. Reserved seating options are available for accessibility and accommodations. For detailed accessibility information, visit INFO > FAQs in the app.

In 2024, the Department of Labor issued its final rule increasing the minimum salary to meet the white collar exemptions under the FLSA.  The new rule calls for a series of increases to the minimum salary as follows:

  1. July 1, 2024:  increase from $684 per week to $844 per week
  2. January 1, 2025:  increase again to $1,128 per week
  3. July 1, 2027: initial triennial update

The rules are relatively simple to understand.  What is more complex is the decision making on how to deal with employees who make or will make less than the minimum salary as it increases over time.

This program will discuss strategic and tactical issues to consider in implementing the new minimum salary requirements.  Among the issues to be discovered:

  1. Determining who is or will be impacted by the new rules
  2. Evaluating the cost of increasing salaries to retain the exemption over different periods of time
  3. Evaluating the employee relations and other potential costs of reclassifying employees
  4. Implementing cost-controls for employees who are reclassified
  5. Training reclassified employees on time keeping practices for non-exempt employees as well as the people managers who work with them

In determining who is impacted, employers must remember that a number of states have minimum salary requirements that are higher than those require by the  FLSA.  These laws will be discussed, too.

Finally, the minimum salary must be paid in accordance with the salary basis requirement.  The salary basis requirement is technical and, in some respects, counterintuitive.  We will discuss how employers have inadvertently violated the salary basis requirement and steps employers can take to help avoid violating the requirement.

Learning Objectives:

  • Legal requirements of new FLSA minimum salary rule.
  • Strategic options in implementing the new rule.
  • Tactical considerations in ensuring compliance with salary basis requirement

This session is designed to help the HR Practitioner avoid the 'cringe' by reviewing the tools we have at our disposal to remain compliant AND minimize potential abuse of the system.  The session covers the basics but is good for mid-level professionals as well - the more we are familiar with the regulations, the better we can apply them and minimize our organizations' exposure to abuse.

When was the last time what stood between you and some result you absolutely needed to achieve was the behavior of one or more people? If so, you had an influence problem.  The ability to influence others is at the core of true leadership - and it's crucial for driving positive change in any organization. Unfortunately, we often turn to a poorly designed incentive, persuasion tactics, or tinkering with processes and procedures to try and drive change.   Yet human behavior can't be altered with a singular strategy; instead, it's governed by six sources of influence. Leaders who know how to leverage these sources in favor of winning behaviors are exponentially more successful at securing change and achieving results. In this session, you'll learn how to harness these six sources of influence to create lasting behavior change and achieve results.

Learning Objectives:

  • Focus on the vital behaviors that directly drive results.
  • Use multiple sources of influence instead of chasing quick-fix tactics.
  • Add the six sources of influence into your leadership strategy.

Despite our recent efforts, employee turnover and retention are still among the top concerns of CEOs, HR, and managers. Pay raises, flextime, remote work, and all the other perks haven't been enough. Why? Employees who leave consistently identify poor feedback as one of the biggest reasons.  When translated, you may recognize these: (a) I don't know what is expected of me, (b) I don't know how I'm doing, (c) I don't know where I stand within the company, (d) I don't know the future holds for me or the company, or (e) I never hear from my manager. Within this session, we'll identify the 5 common trends among managers that prevent effective feedback and how to overcome them. We'll tap into the latest workforce research and compare it to shifts in attitude, demographics, work ethics, learning styles, relationships, and more. You'll also leave with specific tools and action plans you can implement right away with managers to begin to see immediate results.Learning Objectives:Learn about the top five barriers that most commonly get in the way of effective feedback and accountability.Identify the differences in today's workforce that require a shift in how we deliver feedback to effect change.Consider best practices to instill a culture conducive to feedback and continuous improvement.Understand the 'roadmap' to effective feedback to train and implement with managers.Promote greater inclusion in the workplace through effective communication and engagement with employees.

Today's workplaces are composed of diverse individuals juggling personal lives, family responsibilities, mental health challenges, and ever-changing societal landscapes, in addition to their professional duties. Yet, we often fail to acknowledge how these factors impact the workplace and perceive employees solely through the lens of their work contributions. Fundamentally, all individuals have an innate need for understanding, validation, and support. 

Empathy, the capacity to comprehend and share others' emotions, holds the key to addressing this disconnect. Leading with empathy and valuing individuals holistically can profoundly influence the workforce's well-being and productivity. 

In this discussion, we will explore the essence of demonstrating empathy and how to seamlessly integrate it into our daily actions, fostering a more compassionate and self-care focused workplace culture.

3 Ways HR Leaders Can Win With ICHRA

Learn how this new health benefits model works, why more and more companies are switching to it from their group plan, and how to assess the opportunity for your company. 

Seating Instructions: Seating is first-come, first-served. Reserved seating options are available for accessibility and accommodations. For detailed accessibility information, visit INFO > FAQs in the app.

A recent survey found that the biggest challenges for HR professionals are tight budgets, time constraints, stress, and overwhelm. Not surprisingly, burnout is at an all time high in HR. Dealing with group health insurance is front and center when HR professionals evaluated their pain points. Specifically, they ranked controlling health insurance costs as the worst offender.

 

There’s a new way of doing health benefits that allows HR leaders to stay in control of these costs and minimize administrative burden. Called an individual coverage HRA (ICHRA), this new benefits solution allows companies to reimburse their employees for health insurance rather than buying it for them. Personalized benefits alleviate many of the pain points that HR leaders face today: no more renewals, no more unhappy employees with one-size-fits-all plans, no more shifting costs to employees. With unprecedented choice for employees and cost control for HR professionals, ICHRA is a win-win that’s worth a look.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • How the individual coverage HRA works
  • What types of companies and locations are trending with ICHRA adoption
  • How to decide if this benefits solution is right for your company
  • What steps it takes to get started
