    Speaker: Angela Shaw, Vice President of Human Resources @ Campus Advantage


    PRESENTATION SUMMARY

    Learn how to go from Networking at Work to Inclusion Learn some common barriers to Inclusive behavior and how to counteract them Learn some examples of inclusive behavior that encourages courageous conversations Summary of Presentation: There is a lack of action surrounding diversity and inclusion. Everyone is complicit in this issue because we have all either been denied or denied opportunity based on a diversity factor. The talk about it indicates that there is value in diversity and inclusion yet few are translating it into action. Inclusion is the action piece of diversity and it begins with conversations that we are having everyday. So let's not just talk about it, let's be about it with our individual courageous conversations that lead to inclusive behavior.

      Speaker: Lorne Epstein, Trainer and OD Professional @ Electric Cow LLC


      PRESENTATION SUMMARY

      Research on decision making reveals that when individuals are highly aware of their decision-making process, they can see how non-determinant data influences their thinking. This awareness mitigates bias in decision making by giving them access to a more extensive set of choices to reach their intended outcomes. Experiential learning is an integral component of the workshops and the participant development process. The workshops include simulated experiences that transform participant behaviors through awareness. The experiential learning model builds insights by having participants do the actions in a training space that will reduce the effects of bias on decision making. Learning Objectives In this initial workshop, participants will learn what unconscious bias is and how it affects their workplace relationships and decision-making. Through this workshop, participants will: Learn how priming bias works. See how bias can affect their choices at work. Conduct a personal social network analysis. Develop new practices and skills to minimize bias in business decisions. Participants will explore the following questions: What is bias? How does bias affect our lives and the workplace? What biases do I have? What tools are available to me to reduce the effects of bias in my workplace?

      Speaker:  Bill Current, President and Founding Partner @ Current Consultant Group


      PRESENTATION SUMMARY

      As the legalization of marijuana continues to have a direct impact on workplaces across the country, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) published guidelines for lab-based oral fluid drug testing (OFMG) on October 25, 2019. For many years urine testing has been considered by many to be a “gold standard” for drug testing. However, the OFMG now establishes a similar standard for oral fluid testing, which will likely motivate many HR professionals and employers to investigate how oral fluid testing compares to urine testing. This is particularly pertinent given that the legalization of marijuana in many states has created a new emphasis on recent-use detection in drug testing which SAMHSA believes may be more effectively accomplished with oral fluids.

      Speaker: Julie Rennecker, PhD, Founder and Chief - Catalyst of Syzygy Teams


      PRESENTATION SUMMARY

      The HR profession is premised on service to others – recruiting, new employee orientation, payroll, benefits, conflict resolution, organization development, talent management… This session is about taking a break to focus on your own renewal and development. The majority of people who enter this field are energized by service, but too much of even a good thing can be exhausting if we don’t know how to consistently replenish ourselves. In this session, we’ll review the rationale behind strengths-based development and identify ways that common organizational practices can inhibit the recognition and leveraging of strengths. Then we’ll use individual and partner exercises to explore practices for being more intentional about applying one’s strengths in day-to-day work activities in order to achieve greater productivity, accelerated goal achievement, and increased job satisfaction – all without burnout!

      Speaker: Jim Link, CHRO Board Member / Human Capital Strategy @ Ranstad NA


      PRESENTATION SUMMARY

      The future workforce will consist of three segments: traditional, agile and Artificial Intelligence “workers.” The latter two are, by far, the faster growing, driven by employee preference, financial pressure and a necessary ability to pivot at moment’s notice. Within the next few years, 40% of a businesses’ workforce should be agile, deployable at any time. Jim Link will discuss steps HR leaders can take to rethink and redesign their employment models to ensure business sustainability. Learning Objectives: Understand why and how to make AI, robotics and automation a true employee segment, anticipating from it more than small 10-20% efficiency gains and, instead, using it as a scalable means of handling entire tasks and interactions. Uncover which functions are prime for agile workers, even core functions that can be completed as tasks and projects be contractors or AI rather than full- or part-time dedicated employees, and how to model what an ideal mix is based on the outputs your company needs. Learn how to set up an infrastructure for agile workers, starting with the hiring and evaluation processes. HR leaders need to start helping hiring managers think in these terms of what needs can be accomplished through a non-full-time employee and in breaking with the traditional way of evaluating workers – longevity and promotions can’t be the mechanism by which people are judged for a job. Learn how to tap into the existing agile talent pool and cultivate a network of talent through things employers have already been leveraging for years, such as alumni networks, reverse-mentoring and referrals. Companies need to effectively utilize these people and deliver an experience to them (in exchange for their output), and if they do so, they’ll have a group of people who are willing to gain their next work experience with them or come back in the future. Gain insight into how to sell the agile workforce into management and talent, as it’s generally a lucrative relationship for both. Companies can employ people on a more demand-based model, contract with talent with perfect skills for the task at hand and benefit from agile workers’ results-first mentality as they maintain their reputation. Workers can benefit financially, in diversity of work and work-life balance.
