PANEL DISCUSSION: Social Studies: Benchmarking Performance with People and Performative Analytics

In the pre-Covid era, identifying top performers was a lot simpler. In a displaced and distributed workforce, key performance indicators  may not be as apparent as they once were.

Zoom fatigue is real. Mandatory remote work is roaring into the early months of 2021, leaving many employees burnt out, dis-engaged, and disconnected from their organization.

Employee engagement and workplace well-being correlate directly with talent retention. Managers need to re-think engagement strategies to retain top talent. How can we re-imagine team building initiatives to instill company values… again?

Attend this session to learn:

  • How to incorporate well-being initiatives into team building activities
  • Interactive ways to foster connections among employees so that they can collaborate with team members across lines of business
  • Why we need to re-think Zoom meetings and pick up the phone

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.

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

PANEL DISCUSSION: Battery Running on Empty: The Burnt-Out Employee and the Impact on Talent Retention

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.

Attend this session to learn:

  • Defining productivity – what does it truly mean for an employee to be productive in a remote setting?
  • How a coaching vs. manager mindset can assist with employee fatigue
  • Why employee and incentive programs have a big impact on motivation

2:20 PM - 2:50 PM ET

KEYNOTE PRESENTATION: The Power of Mentorship on Employee Career Growth

Studies show that employees who have a mentor relationship statistically are more likely to advance in their organization. According to the Harvard Business Review, not only do mentees see positive impacts from mentorship on their careers, but mentees have also reported an improvement in their personal health and self-esteem.

70% of Fortune 500 companies currently offer mentorship programs, but the development and overall impact of these programs have not reached their full potential in most cases.

Join us in this session to learn how to create a mentorship program that truly drives actionable change on employee well-being.

Attend this session to learn:

  • Re-analyze what the mentor-mentee relationship looks like in a remote setting
  • Understand the benefits of effective mentorship on talent retention and development
  • Learn how to incorporate diversity & inclusion initiatives into mentorship programs

2:55 PM - 3:40 PM ET

PANEL DISCUSSION: The Future of Work: How Automation is Changing the American Workforce

HR technology is here to stay – and the possibilities are expanding. Every year more and more companies are investing in intelligent automation to increase performance management and reduce the demand on Human Resources teams.

Not only can machine learning technology free up the administrative task workload, but it also has potential to improve your workforce and talent development pipeline.

Join experts in HR technology in an informative, eye-opening discussion about how automation can help make your department more efficient.

Attend this session to learn:

  • What talent management technology you should be investing in now
  • Explore the opportunities of using predictive analytics to make informed business decisions
