KEYNOTE PRESENTATION: Reengaging the Workforce in a Post-Covid World

In 2020, thousands of people lost their jobs due to the impact of Covid-19. A brighter economic future is expected in 2021, which will hopefully help businesses recover lost talent.

Some industries are expected to see a ‘V-Shaped’ revenue recovery. Hospitality is predicted to be one of those industries. Currently, hospitality companies are operating on a skeleton staff, so the need for talent in the new year will be great. However, many of their previous employees shifted to careers in other industries, so trying to rehire them may be challenging. How can HR leaders strategize to reengage the lost workforce, and rebuild employee’s trust?

Join Laura Lee, Chief Human Resources Officer at MGM International Resorts, for an eye-opening and honest conversation about reengaging talent in 2021 and beyond.

Attend this session to learn:

  • Why we need to reimagine hiring strategies to recover lost talent
  • What the new normal may look like for the hospitality industry
  • How to engage the next generation of the American workforce to continuously develop new talent

FIRESIDE CHAT : Don’t Just Check In, Connect: How to Foster an Effective Employee/Manager Relationship in a Remote Setting

Research shows that a positive employee-to-manager relationship directly correlates with employee performance, well-being, and retention. As if this was not already a challenging feat, the prolonged virtual workplace has made a positive relationship even more difficult to cultivate.

It is challenging to find the balance between little-to-no employee connection and micromanaging in a virtual setting. How can managers develop a stronger relationship with their employees while adhering to company values?

Attend this session to learn:

  • Strategies to emphasize communication with individual employees. What medium of communication is most effective?
  • Why a mentor mindset may be more impactful than a manager mindset
  • How to build a framework to keep company values alive and employee morale strong

We have all heard the popular 2020 phrase, ‘businesses are forced to do more with less.’ While the concept has been largely effective for businesses in their economic recovery, the ‘more with less’ factor has led to a major increase in employee burnout.

According to a poll conducted by Mental Health America, 75% of American workers have felt burnt out, with over 40% reporting the impacts of the pandemic as the root cause.

Join leaders in talent development to discuss how to provide a pathway to motivate the American workforce in 2021 and beyond.
