First Session
Driving Business Through Fearless HR Program, David C. Forman

The Human Resources profession has been the subject of criticism and questions over the years but it is now poised to be a primary driver in today’s economy. Examine five historical perceptions that have dogged HR over the years; and hear evidence, research and examples to suggest a bold future in which HR drives business results and enables talent and innovation to flourish

One reason for HR’s checkered past is that it does a poor job of demonstrating its value to the business.  There are, in fact, at least five ways in which HR can impact business results.  Each of these can save time, money, resources and strengthen competitive positioning. 

Strategic Alignment:  Not wasting time and energy on misaligned projects.  Close fit to strategy, strategic initiatives, business goals and competitive issues.

  • Optimizing Talent:  Leading to an engaged, loyal and committed workforce, and having the right people with the right skills in the right job
  • Cost Savings:  Usually by streamlining processes, eliminating waste and reducing costs
  • Productivity Improvements:  Becoming proficient faster and doing more with the same or less resources
  • Improving Outcomes:  Such as revenue, profit, quality, brand-strength, innovation, and supply chain effectiveness

Second Session
Next Generation Hiring: Are You Ready?, Paula Cleveland

Who are Millennials and Generation Z?  How will they work together, with Generation X and Baby Boomers?  In this presentation, Paula Cleveland from Mitchell International will cover how to find them, attract them to your company and blend them into your existing workforce.  Then, she will discuss how to retain this new employee who is ready to work, but also ready to challenge you with their independence, multi-tasking ability, and new way of thinking.
