Wellness programs pledge to reduce absenteeism, lower healthcare costs, improve productivity, and increase employee morale, but few companies have realized those promised benefits. To deliver scalable, sustainable results, wellness programs must shift from telling employees what to do to stay healthy to helping them understand at an individual level why they struggle to put those recommendations into place. Moreover, companies can do much outside of their official wellness programs to create the kinds of environments where employees can flourish – personally and professionally.

Key Benefits

  • Learn what happens when emotion and intellect collide and what identified factors come at a high emotional cost
  • Understand how poor nutrition, lack of exercise, and improper sleep contribute people’s state of wellness
  • Explore the consequences and how those impact our future workforce
  • Find out how you could adjust the focus of your wellness programs to help your employees thrive

12:00 pm - 12:30 pm EST Data-Driven Decisions: How to Harness Business Intelligence for Training

John Peebles - CEO, Administrate

Every training team creates reports – often from a variety of disconnected systems and spreadsheets. While the information stored in these reports is vital, the challenges of data accessibility, data integrity, and limited tools for analytics in learning and development limit teams to offering after-the-fact feedback to the organization rather than fueling decisions with relevant data upfront. How can we, as training leaders, harness and leverage mission-critical data to guide mission-critical business decisions for our organizations?

Join John Peebles, CEO of Administrate, to review what the trajectory looks like for business intelligence-driven training organizations as they craft reporting that moves from information > insight > intelligence.

Key Benefits

● How to Measuring Training and Move your Business Forward.

● How to Grow towards Business Intelligence.

12:30 pm - 1:00 pm EST AI and Scheduling: How Artificial Intelligence Can Fuel Responsible Flexibility

Artificial intelligence is interacting with the workforce in new ways every day and with the amount of data being generated by modern employees, it’s only set to grow and expand. What AI can tell us with that data could support improved operational activity, such as optimized scheduling.

In this session, we’ll detail how AI can support efforts to create a flexible work environment with personalized schedules and the ability to review time-off and shift-swap requests in real time. Doing so could make it easier for frontline/hourly employees whose are required to be on site to take more control of their work/life balance just as easily as those in remote work environments.

Key takeaways:

  • Learn what AI can tell you about employees work-life balance needs
  • Understand how to apply AI data to optimize scheduling
  • Improve employee engagement and retention by improving employee satisfaction.

1:00 pm - 1:30 pm EST Developing Skill Clusters for Employee Development

Regis Courtemanche - Director of Knowledge and Learning, ACLU

The World Economic Forum estimates that by 2025, 97 million new roles will emerge that are more adapted to a division of labor between humans, machines and algorithms. There will be a continued reliance on human interaction and thinking, however, meaning humans need to prepare for the reality of the jobs of the future.

While these roles will require the acquisition of new skills for many people, they’ll also require the refinement of skills people currently possess. In addition, the way HR teams define job roles and the way employees think about their work is changing. People are becoming less and less specialized on one specific thing, instead doing work that spans a variety of roles. In this session, we’ll examine the development of skill clusters to drive employee adaptability and organizational success.

Key takeaways:

  • Learn how roles are being redefined and skills are becoming fluid in the workplace
  • Understand how to develop skill clusters for employee development
  • Use data to align skill clusters to organizational goals.
