The Culture Trap - Culture is a Result, not a Remedy

Speaker: John Broer | Credits: NBR_CREDITS

Ask anyone what they look for in an ideal work environment and most will say they look for culture. Is this the kind of place I would want to be? Is this an environment where I will grow and develop? So where do companies typically focus when wanting to create that kind of place? Culture. What they fail to realize is that the entire premise is a trap. We know that culture is a by product of several other factors, many of which are difficult to control. But there are specific factors that are within our control that directly impact the culture of an organization. This session will explore those specific factors and the role they play in curating a culture that is not only healthy but sustainable.

Build Trust. Your Purpose-Driven Story is the Key to Your Professional Success.

Speaker: Babette Haken | Credits: NBR_CREDITS

Continuous Change is the new workplace Normal. Today's workplaces not only represent the dynamic, constantly changing intersection of people, processes, software and hardware. Also, workplaces are where Today's Internet of Things Fourth Industrial Revolution collides with Yesterdays Third Industrial Revolution hiring models. These are hiring models from just a few years ago, when the workplace and workforce was less complex, less connected and less vulnerable.

How do you earn your seat at your organizations leadership table, as the trusted Voice of Human Resources? Especially when making your numbers and fulfilling KPIs seems like chasing a constantly moving, Internet of Things target (because it is)? The key to your professional success leverages purpose-driven HR storytelling about how you deliver strategic business and human capital value: Today, Tomorrow and Future-forward. Relying on job titles, certifications and academic degrees to tell your professional story to the C-Suite falls short of clarifying the unique, purpose-driven value differentiation you deliver, time after time. Because of your Signature Story.

When the SHRM Competency Model becomes the dynamic blueprint for your HR career trajectory, each element of the model simultaneously relates, connects and engages with every other element. Just like those software and hardware systems interact in your workplaces. The Signature Stories you co-create with employees fuel professional success; yours and theirs. Because these stories are about how you catalyze Trust: one of the most powerful employee and human experiences of all.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Combine the SHRM Competency Model with Legendary Storytelling and Voice of the Employee methodology to redefine yourself as a revenue-generator, not a cost-center.
  • Create more valuable human resources outcomes by focusing on the strategic business and human capital value of your contributions.
  • Leverage the SHRM Competency Model to transform your current professional story into your Signature Story, your Professional Legend.
  • Translate your Signature Story, and the differentiated value you co-create, across people and professional disciplines.
  • Become more visible, relevant and valuable as you target earning a place at your organizations leadership table as a trusted voice of human resources.

Data Analytics

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

HR Algorithms - Could They Replace You?

Speaker: Jim Lewis | Credits: NBR_CREDITS

Workplaces of even modest size and means have begun using big data, business analytics, and artificial intelligence. Machine learning and data driven decision making are on the horizon in most every industry. What does this mean for HR professionals and line managers, who use their intuitive and experiential judgement all day long in the attraction, acquisition, management, assessment, and discarding of human capital?

What if an algorithm could better screen applicants and better measure and reward performance? That algorithm exists, and has been piloted. What if that algorithm could tell you who to hire, how much to pay, and who to fire with predictive accuracy that surpasses that of the HR manager? This session will explore the stunning possibilities of AI and its algorithmic decision making in HR both game changing for the company bottom line, and potentially cataclysmic in terms of risk.

We will focus on scholarly research conducted on the potential issues associated with replacing HR and management decision makers with AI algorithms. Well also briefly touch on the possibility that standards for such powerful AI may not be developed as the AI itself, leaving a buyer beware scenario for those who want to use the technology.

Speaker: Jay Richards | Credits: NBR_CREDITS

If you are struggling with employee turnover I can almost guarantee it is a product of an ineffective  culture.  You can blame it on the economy and/or low unemployment.  You can blame it on the  competition down the street.  Heck, you can blame it on the millennial generation.  Everyone else does!   The fact is you have more control over employee turnover then you think.  We analyzed 150  manufacturing facilities that had conducted the Denison Organizational Culture Survey (DOCS) that were  asked how likely they were to look for another job.  What we found was a strong correlation to a  facility’s culture to the likelihood of if employees will stay.  Our research found the key drivers of why people stay. 

As HR leaders, you play a key role in developing and maintaining an effective culture.  Therefore,  understanding the type of leader the average person responds to will help you develop the type of  culture that is not only effective, but keeps people from leaving.  Learn about the four things present in effective cultures that keep people from leaving and three things  your leaders can implement today that will have a big impact on tomorrow.

Compliance & Benefits

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Employee Financial Wellness, why credit scores matter

Speaker: Scott Dobson | Credits: NBR_CREDITS

Employee wellness is becoming a key component to many Human Resource departments to engage, enrich, and retain employees. Employee stress is a major wellness consideration and 78% of employees report feeling stressed about their personal finances.

This presentation will focus on how to engage employees to act with their own financial wellness and get interested in their own personal finances to make the most of each paycheck they receive.

Employees who are engaged with their own personal finances are more likely to budget each paycheck, pay bills on-time and save for emergencies, making them much more likely to be engaged and focused on their work. Employees in this position are more likely to report satisfaction with their paycheck and job and are less likely to look for employment with higher wages elsewhere.

Top 15 COSTLY Mistakes and How to Fix Them!

Speaker: Vanessa Nelson | Credits: NBR_CREDITS

Workplace lawsuits are on the rise. Employment litigation has increased 2000% since 1995. The average lawsuit settlement is $165,000 (not including lawyer fees) and could cost in excess of $1 MILLION if the case goes to trial. Additionally, compliance fines and penalties can be extremely expensive and damaging to the organization. Employers do not intentionally violate regulations; however, oftentimes employers make mistakes without knowing of the missteps.

Even large corporations make mistakes. For example: Wal-Mart agreed to pay $4,828,442 in back wages and damages to employees following an investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division that found violations of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act's overtime provisions.

Therefore, it is crucial that HR professionals are knowledgeable regarding costly HR mistakes in order to protect the organization from risk. This interactive session entitled, Top 15 Costly HR Mistakes and How to Fix Them, will help employers to avoid litigation, as well as help prevent high-priced compliance fees and penalties.

In this session Steve will lay out the proven process of Results Based Interviewing™. You will learn how to focus on what your hiring leaders need to accomplish, not just the positions they need to fill. Using the principles of the Core 4™, you will learn how to define success of each position and select candidates with a significantly higher probability of achieving that success.

Ownershift – Reimagining how we create accountable teams

Speaker: Steve Lowisz | Credits: NBR_CREDITS

Every leader has one thing in common–the desire to get their organizations to performas as one team. But what does this mean and is it possible? Holding your team accountable as a leader is the reverse of accountability!

In this session Steve will lay out the case for why most teams never reach the true pinnacle of accountability and ownership. In fact, despite the positive intent of great people, most teams are still dysfunctional.

As a leader, the journey to creating and leading a team that TAKES real ownership requires taking a new path–a path that requires a new mindset and a new set of daily behaviors.

Leadership Remodeled, Why the Role of Leadership Needs a Desperate Makeover

Speaker: Tina Wohlfield | Credits: NBR_CREDITS

The common standard in how the success and effectiveness of a leader is defined is quantified by technical knowledge (intelligence) and the ability to navigate processes, generate revenue or achieve a defined outcome.

Welcome to the leadership epidemic - where leaders are so focused on the bottom line, efficiencies, and data driven results, that they have lost the ability to connect and serve the employees in their ranks.

In this session, Tina Marie will discuss the current leadership landscape, the impacts on employee engagement and how organizations can revisit the role of leadership to balance the tactical and employee focus required to achieve results.

  • Interpret the current state of leadership in todays organizational climate understanding the good the bad and why its time to intervene.
  • Identify internal opportunities and implications of the leadership epidemic that directly influence employee engagement/productivity and retention.
  • Identify the 4 Ps of Leadership People/Productivity/Promotion/Purpose and how each pillar of leadership focus is integral for achieving strategic outcomes and optimal team performance.
  • The blueprint for a leadership makeover: From Results at Any Costs to People Driven Results
