Creating a Culture that Performs

Accordion1

Only 31% of HR leaders believe their organization has the culture it needs to drive future performance. Complex organizational structures, rapidly evolving competitive environments, and disruptive trends impacting the workforce leave many CHROs unsure of their organization’s current culture(s), uncertain whether updates are needed, and unable to sufficiently embed culture to drive desired employee behaviors. Leading organizations realize they can create an aligned culture faster and more cost-effectively by aligning key processes in employees’ workflow, in addition to OR before, aligning influential people in employees' networks.

Reimagine Recruitment & Assessments

Recruiting in the Digital Enterprise

Accordion1

To remain competitive, organizations across industries are digitalizing their business models, service delivery, and operations.  This digital transformation places strain on the recruiting service delivery model, which is challenged by symptoms of digital change like increasing variation in requisitions, greater volatility in hiring volume, and unrealistic hiring manager expectations.  The current service delivery model not only fails to fill critical talent roles quickly; it also cannot sustainably support the long-term digital transformation of the enterprise given flat budgets and staffing.

The best organizations are redesigning their Recruiting service delivery model to quickly fill critical talent roles for a business in digital transition, keep pace with hiring needs in an era of accelerated change, and better match emerging talent needs with shifting labor market supply.

Reimagine Diversity & Inclusion

Building Inclusive Leaders

Accordion1

Leaders that build a more inclusive environment get better results. But the question that HR executives face is how do they support their leaders to build a more inclusive environment? In this session we will share the profiles, strategies, and activities that the most inclusive leaders engage in to improve the talent and business outcomes of their organization.

Reimagine Talent & Learning Analytics

A New Framework for World-leading Learning Analytics

Accordion1

L&D organizations often struggle with measuring the impact of learning programs. Certainly, Kirkpatrick’s 4-Levels of Evaluation and Phillips’s ROI Methodology provide insight and guidance, but often more than the model is needed to meet the information needs of the business. During this session, we will share world-class measurement practices that incorporate measurement models (e.g., Kirkpatrick and Phillips), leverage technology and apply change management principles to transform L&D. Dewey Caddell from Viacom will share his experience and best practices

Reimagine Development & Performance

Addressing Pay Equity

Accordion1

Total Rewards executives feel pressure from all sides to close pay gaps—from the CEO to the customer. Pay equity has increasingly become a legal, talent, and reputational risk. This research will address how progressive companies are identifying and eliminating pay gaps, and what you should do to stay ahead of this issue at your organization.

Reimagine the Role of the CHRO

Creating a Common Vision of Digitalization for the Business and HR

Accordion1

There’s no doubt that digitalization—the use of data and technology to enhance existing products and services, improve channel coordination and performance, and optimize enterprise activities and processes—is a pressing business issue. Eighty-seven percent of executives agree digitalization is a priority for their company, yet only 27% of senior executives have a cohesive digitalization strategy across the enterprise. The lack of a cohesive definition of, and strategy for, digitization presents a major opportunity for Chief HR Officers and other senior HR executives to create a common understanding of digitalization with their business leaders and craft a corresponding talent strategy to help their CEO.

Mental Health: The “Not-So Hidden Factor”

Accordion1

As we become better aware of the prevalence of mental health conditions in the workplace, we need to re-engineer our approach to assessing performance. The constant changes in technology, the pace at which we need to adapt to succeed, and the loss of personal interaction have become significant sources of stress at all levels, in all industries.  This reality of the workplace becomes harder to manage when individuals experience undiagnosed or untreated mental health issues. Strategies to improve performance that fail to factor in the potential need for mental health care are doomed to fail. In these litigious times most of the advice is directed at focusing on the impact of the behavior and developing operational solutions to correct it. Recognizing the manner in which mental health issues manifest at work and training our leadership teams to recognize them will not only create a better work environment but may become the portal towards a healthier workforce .

Analytics Eatery Discussion with Arun Chidambaram, VP Analytics at Pfizer

Accordion1

Process, Skills, and Technology are the three ingredients required to make a perfect meal in the analytics kitchen. Maintaining a balance between these three ingredients is very challenging in the current era of big data analytics. As the analytics community matures, prioritisation of work, team growth and structure, business alignment, technology investment, experimentation, and sponsorship are key to success. Arun Chibamdaram, head of the Global HR Analytics team at Pfizer, will highlight how each of these areas are applicable to organizations of any size in order to create a successful talent analytics process. This presentation will focus on building talent analytics capabilities and showcasing real life examples on how analytics are applied in HR.

A New Manager Mandate

Accordion1

Increasingly the involvement of managers in employee development is the top priority for HR leaders in today’s work environment. However, our research of nearly 8,000 employees finds that the type of manager most L&D functions are trying to develop actually degrades employee performance. In this session learn about which type of manager triples the likelihood of employees being high performers and how to accelerate the effectiveness of your managers coaching and development approach.

Linking Leadership Performance to Business Outcomes: The Power of Context

Accordion1

Consideration of context – the specific challenges within a role – in leader selection and development has become increasingly important. Companies and vendors alike are working to integrate context into their leadership programs; however, considering nearly 50% of all leaders fail to meet their objectives after moving into a new role, the methods used to define and apply context in decision-making are highly variable and unproven. In this session, learn about how we are supporting leadership selection and development today, and our plans for the near future as we complete the largest research study in over 25 years to understand and enable leader performance. Our aspiration with the research -- and subsequent assessment services -- is to increase by 3x how you can accurately predict the likelihood of success for leaders in new positions by effectively applying role, team, and organizational context to the selection process. Session will include client panel, sharing their experience with the Leader Edge solution.

Leveraging Labor Market Analytics to Drive Business Impact

Accordion1

As Talent Analytics and Talent Acquisition functions mature, they are seeking to integrate external labor market data into their dashboards to increase the quality and impact of their decision support to the business. External labor market data offers more than standalone value; it can often complement internal data to help organizations build more actionable sourcing and workforce planning strategies aligned to their biggest talent gaps and risks. The net result is HR and Recruiting stakeholders who are capable of advising the business on (often changing) talent needs rather than simply acting as service deliverers. In this panel discussion, we will hear from several HR experts who are using labor market analytics to advance their function’s dashboards and decision-support capabilities to the business.

Aligning L&D Value to Business Outcomes: The Portfolio Evaluation Approach

Accordion1

L&D is increasingly being asked to demonstrate value to the business. However many approaches are too academic to resonate with business leaders or are too resource-intensive to be applied to all but the most strategic, costly programs. Learn how Gartner is evolving the field of Learning Analytics by applying a Portfolio Management approach to managing the learning asset catalog. Attendees will discover how to align L&D assets to business levers the C-suite already understands, leverage appropriate KPIs to communicate L&D's contribution to critical business outcomes, and implement a scalable data collection and reporting plan to appropriately track the performance across the catalog, not just for specific programs, and not "one size fits all". Pat Colandrea from Cigna will share her experiences.

Agile HIPO Development

As the pace of change in many organizations accelerates, the direction of the organization and future leadership profiles are increasingly unclear.

Managing Your Employment Brand in an Information Rich Era

Accordion1

The growing abundance of candidate focused platforms and information sites makes the labor market increasingly transparent for candidates and increasingly difficult for organizations to manage perceptions of their employment brand. This is particularly problematic as competition for talent continues to intensify, with over 90% of the S&P 100 and two-thirds of the FTSE 100 companies targeting most of their recruitment efforts at just over 20 in-demand roles.

Shifting the Measurement Paradigm: Capturing the Value of Informal Learning

Accordion1

As learning changes, measurement must also change. The intersection of new technologies and a new generation of workers is transforming the learning ecosystem. While L&D still offers formal learning programs via ILT, VILT and elearning, the size, variety and accessibility of learning content is changing.

It is even harder to determine whether learning is aligning to business goals and influencing those goals in a meaningful way. Join us for this session to learn about best practices with regards to measurement. There will also be an opportunity to share your joys, frustrations and insights about the new learning ecosystem and how you are showing value to your stakeholders.
