Implementing a new HR technology system can be one of the most high profile and impactful projects in which an HR practitioner can be involved, with the potential to impact strategies and processes throughout the organization. However, the opportunities typically don’t come along often and most practitioners may only be involved in one only once or twice in their careers, if that. So if given the opportunity to lead an implementation, many may not know what’s involved, where to begin, or the challenges they may face. This presentation will discuss just that – what to expect, the myths vs. the realities of implementation, and lessons learned along the way, on both the company and vendor side.

SMART STAGE | Work Is a Relationship, Act Accordingly
06/20/2017 10:00 AM - 10:18 AM | Smart Stage
Type: Smart Stage
0.00 Not Available for Credit | Competencies: Relationship Management
Presenter:
Jason Lauritsen, Speaker and author, Www.JasonLauritsen.com

Work has been defined in many ways over the years: a contract, a transaction, a value exchange. This led to describing humans as capital and designing systems of management that treat people like financial assets. Is it any wonder that employees’ feeling of engagement within these organizations continues to drop? It doesn’t feel good to be treated like an investment to be maximized. To reverse this trend requires that we understand what work is for employees, a relationship, and a critically important one. Research has shown us that employees crave the same things from work that they do from other important relationships in their lives: appreciation, connection, acceptance, communication, and support. This presentation will explore how viewing the employee work experience through the lens of a relationship will focus your employee engagement efforts for greater impact.

Presenter:
Bob Kelleher, Author of Louder Than Words, and CEO, The Employee Engagement Group

This presentation will show you why the empathetic manager is the secret source to maximizing the engagement of employees. Because employee engagement is not linear (we all have good and bad days), one's engagement is often predicated by what happens AFTER work. While engagement is often seen as a top-down process driven by organizational management, learn why tomorrow's organizations need to foster improved relations between the manager and employee. This presentation will show you why empathy is a critical competency for tomorrow's manager and leader and will provide seven motivational drivers as well as how to use them to guide development and growth. You will leave with practical tools to coach employees on personal engagement, an investment in both the individual and the organization.

SMART STAGE: How HR Executives Can Create Distinction for Their Organizations by Driving Growth Through the Cultural Demographic Shift™

Type: Smart Stage
0.00 Not Available for Credit | Competencies: Leadership & Navigation, Global & Cultural Effectiveness, Business Acumen
Presenter:
Glenn Llopis, Chairman, The Glenn Llopis Group

The workplace and marketplace are culturally diverse and multigenerational, and companies must adapt and welcome change in order to evolve and grow. The influence of this Cultural Demographic Shift™ (CDS) is that growth strategies are becoming less about the business defining the individual and more about the individual defining the business. This presentation will help you:

  • Understand that without strategy, change is merely substitution not evolution and companies need new strategies for success: the old ways of doing business don’t apply any more.
  • Find like-mindedness in people through their differences by steering away from assimilating people’s differences (melting pot) and towards honoring those differences (mosaic).
  • See the CDS, not as a cost center, but as profit centers (investments) that drive influence in the workplace and growth in the marketplace.
  • Move people to the center of your growth strategies.

There has been a seismic shift in the way executives think about people, culture and workplace practices. They have come to understand that exceptional “People” leadership and systems are levers of operational and financial excellence. As a result, there is growing recognition that the background, skills and competencies of the CPO position are vital components to the success of the business as a whole, and that an alarmingly high percentage of current HR/People leaders do not possess what it takes to lead their companies in the future.  Companies require –and deserve –a highly evolved set of skills and competencies from their human capital leaders. This presentation will share the top 10 traits that Chief People Officers must possess to lead their organizations into the future. The CPO who embodies these 10 competencies has the power to change the trajectory of a company and its performance. The future of work demands this level of skill and ability.
