Room: TBD
Tuesday 06/19/2018 07:00 AM - 08:15 AM Add to calendar
1.25 SHRM PDCs | Competencies: Leadership & Navigation, HR Expertise, Critical Evaluation | Intended Audience: Midlevel
Workplace Application:
You will learn about two emerging practices in time away from work and whether they are appropriate considerations for your company. 

With focus on creating a work environment with a healthy work/life balance, paid time off has become a critical part of the total rewards package. This session will explain The Finish Line's move to flexible PTO in 2016 as well as a vacation conversion program introduced at Erie Insurance in 2014. How they developed their business case will be shared as well as how the plan was implemented and critical lessons learned.  You will learn:

  • The details of two emerging trends in time away from work – unlimited PTO and vacation conversion.
  • How to assess your organization's culture, philosophy and employee population for possible fit with these emerging practices.
  • Successes and failures from two business leaders that have already implemented, thereby increasing your chance for success if you should choose to implement.
