8:05 am - 8:50 am The HP Employee Experience and The Must-Win Battle for Talented Workers

HP’s Tracy Keogh was named the 2015 CHRO of the year for her work during Hewlett-Packard Company’s turnaround and ultimate separation into HP Inc. and Hewlett Packard Enterprise. She redesigned nearly every HR process, slashed turnover, and increased engagement by 22 percent, helping the company to regain the top perch in its markets. Tracy also created an Employee Experience team within her organization, overseeing culture, engagement, change management, and employee communications. To lead this team, Tracy hired Luciana Duarte, who will join Tracy in discussing how they have shaped the employee experience at the new HP and how modern HR leaders must “keep reinventing” processes and practices to champion diversity and gain market advantage in attracting, developing, and engaging top talent. They will also touch upon how they’re approaching the digital transformation of their workforce.

8:50 am - 9:20 am A Transformational Approach To High Potential Development: Leveraging Strengths To Define The Future

As organizations invest in their high potential next level leaders, they often find positive engagement but fail to obtain the desired accelerated development results. TEKsystems, an Allegis Group Company, is on a transformational journey of moving beyond “closing the leadership gap” by focusing on a strengths-based, feedback rich environment that supports their leader development goals and strategy for growth.  In this session you will examine methods for uncovering strengths through assessment and feedback capture, development via an IDP, and self-led and prescribed learning. Time will be allocated for questions and answers regarding this breakthrough approach.

9:25 am - 10:10 am From Compliance to Prevention: New Anti-Harassment Strategies for the Post#MeToo Workplace

The recent wave of #MeToo-inspired legislation in New York, California, and beyond--as well as pressures from Boards of Directors, shareholders, and employees--are compelling organizations to reimagine their harassment prevention efforts. During this session, the speaker will discuss new anti-harassment legal mandates and organizational risk factors that are prompting CHROs to move beyond traditional “check-the-box” anti-harassment practices toward innovative prevention approaches that help stop harassment before it starts. The session will also highlight evidence-based approaches, such as leveraging workplace norms and bystander intervention techniques, which enable organizations to go beyond legal compliance to transform workplace behavior. Participants will gain:
- Knowledge of recently-enacted legislative mandates regarding harassment in the workplace
- Understanding of the organizational risk factors of harassment and research-based strategies that can help stop harassment
- Actionable insights for building and implementing a comprehensive, organization-wide harassment prevention initiative.

5:00 pm - 5:30 pm Harness Employee Potential to Drive Performance

The way organizations rank their employees’ potential is usually subjective and not based on observable actions/performance. Therefore, typical evaluations are not accurate depictions of the employees' true capabilities. This phenomenon along with the act that most employees leave their respective companies because of lack of development  may also suggest that managers do not have a good grasp  on the employees potential.  If they had, maybe they could keep they interested in their work through effective development.

During this session, we will explore innovative ways to assess potential in order to get a clearer view of what your future workforce might look like.  Through understanding the operational views of both performance and potential and their associated relationship, we may be able to devise a process that gives organizations greater insight to their employees potential.  Examples and models will be shared through the following deliver method; Dr. Tom Tonkin, Principal, Advisory Services for Cornerstone OnDemand will walk you through:
            • A brief overview of performance management
            • How organizations rank employee potential today
            • How to accurately identify, measure and manage employee potential

As companies globalize and operate across markets in multiple countries, more and more people are increasingly working with colleagues from different countries.  Developing cross-cultural competencies to communicate with workforces in different nations can be difficult but the companies who succeed at this will always outperform the competition. Yet differences in cultural communication and widely varying practices in cultural business practices can lead to miscommunication and impact your ability to coordinate talent strategy and roll out unified HR policies. In this session, HR leaders who operate in the US, Latin America, Europe and the Caribbean will discuss their successes and challenges in navigating HR in a cross-cultural, multi-national workforce.  Learn more about: 

•How poor cross-cultural competencies can negatively impact your workforce
•Understanding  how cultural business practices effect the productivity of different management styles
•Developing HR strategies that allow for cultural adaptations in multinational markets
