See the Future, Be the Future: Implications for HR

Presenter: Margaret Regan

Take a visual journey into the future to see how the workplace and workforce will change over the next 10 years. What will careers look like with Freetainers, Anybots, ESIs, AI and the Evaporating Office? How will we handle Talent Management as Generations Y and Z become the majority and define both work and HR differently? See examples of how some organiza-tions are catching the wave today with innovative pro-grams that respond to these changes. This interactive multimedia presentation, including a trip into virtual reality, will focus on current HR challenges and oppor-tunities and what you need to do to see the future so you can embrace the future in a VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) world.

How to Conduct Legal & Effective Workplace Investigations

Presenter: John Bagyi

Handled correctly, a workplace investigation can limit or even eliminate an employer’s legal liability. This presentation will provide a crash course in how to effectively and legally conduct workplace investigations by addressing difficult issues, including where to start an investigation, who should be interviewed, how to handle a difficult witness or one who refuses to participate, and the rights of employees during investigatory interviews. This presentation will give you the tools you need to conduct workplace investigations.

Moneyball for the Talent Function

Presenter: Mark Fogel

The premise of Michael Lewis’ 2004 book, Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game was that the collective wisdom of baseball insiders is flawed and that using more advanced analytical tools leads to better teams. What if the same is true for talent management? Recruiters have more data than ever before but they have yet to crack the code on recruitment excellence. Google and a few others have been pushing the envelope on this. Factoring into the screening process behavioral and cognitive attributes of candidates can be a game changer at a rate of as much as eight times the success rate in new hire success and retention. This presentation will explore how to change your interview process and decision-making protocol to maximize your recruitment results.

2:00—2:15 pm Dessert and Sponsor Raffles in the Solutions Center

2:15—3:30 pm Session 4
