One constant exists in today’s work environment–change. In the past three years, the typical organization has undertaken five enterprise changes: cultural change, restructuring, market expansion, leadership transition, or merger and acquisition. Two-thirds of these changes fail, which leads to drops in long-term engagement and performance. Our opening session will examine what organizations should be doing to be successful in today's constant change environment.

Competing for Critical Talent: Why You Need to Change What You Are Looking For
Speaker: Dion Love

Demand for critical skill sets, particularly those in STEM, is increasing dramatically as skill needs converge across sectors. CEB analysis of the job postings of S&P100 organizations in 2015 found that 40% of all posting activity was for just 21 roles (which included software application developers, industrial engineers, and marketing managers) . What’s more, 90% of those organizations were recruiting for each role. Organizations are faced with a very real talent crunch. This is further exacerbated by technologies that are quickly commoditizing search and frustrating prospective talent who are becoming tired of recruiter spam. This sessions will focus on why organizations need to be much more flexible with their hiring needs, and how leading organizations are successfully expanding their labor market opportunity.

Reimagine Development & Performance
To Score or Not: Does the Business Case for Eliminating Performance Review Scores Hold?

Enough companies have made the decision to radically adjust scores to see if the promised business case holds true.

Operationalizing Goals and Feedback

You're already considering major changes to your annual performance management process, but simply dropping ratings doesn't work.

By adding frequent, collaborative goal setting and regular conversations throughout your organization, you can easily drive high performance across the board. This session will explore how to build your "goal muscle" and the best ways to drive engagement and growth through performance development.

9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. The End of Agility?: Designing a HIPO Strategy That Moves at the Speed of the Business
Speaker: Scott Engler

As organizations become flatter, and as the profile of the high performer evolves rapidly, organizations need to adopt a more flexible approach that builds future stars who will outperform in a wide variety of roles and contexts. At the same time, retaining HIPOs is a critical challenge. Less than 50% fully intend to stay with their organizations past the next 12 months. To add to the challenge, HR leaders must also create compelling value propositions for a new generation of rising leaders. How can organizations develop HIPO strategies that are agile enough to address the rapidly changing needs of both the organization and its most promising employees?

Less is More: Outcome Driven Assessment and Selection
Speaker: Dion Love

An effective assessment approach – which may include interviews, role plays, psychometric tests and other tools – is critical to achieving quality hires. More information on candidates does however not necessarily lead to better quality (while it almost always leads to longer time-to-hire). This session will provide a practical framework for deciding what to assess, how to assess it, and crucially how to make good hiring decisions using that information.
