8:35 am - 9:10 am Performance Review Shakeup? - Deciding When to Stay the Course or Take the Leap

Yearly performance reviews used to be the standard, but are increasingly being bucked in favor of a variety of other styles. While many talent professionals are recommending this to their company’s leaders, the top brass often pushes back on doing away with this time-honored practice. A panel of CTOs who have pondered this change, some who have kept the status quo and some who have made the switch, will discuss their reasons and what the outcome has been. Before presenting this change to leaders, heads of talent management have some serious questions to consider and these leaders will walk you through them.

•How do you know if your company could benefit from this change? 
•What does a successful format look like for your employees? 
•What commitment do you need from leadership to make this change effective?

11:15 am - 11:50 am Change Management- Transforming Attitudes and Combining Cultures

In today’s corporate world, mergers, acquisitions, re-orgs, spin-offs, and the like are simply unavoidable. With these transformations, come their challenges, however. As CTOs it is up to us to manage the change and ensure as smooth a transition as possible for our employees. Corporate cultures must be revamped, updated, and merged to reflect the needs of the new workforce. All of this is easy to say, but often tricky to implement. In this session, learn from Meaghan Ryan on how she managed her organization’s merge with their sister company and brought two offices together as one. Topics discussed will include:

•Strategies for avoiding the hostility and competition that can often arise when combining workforces
•Understanding the new makeup of your workforce and objectives of the new business to plan and execute the new corporate culture
•Embodying and demonstrating the change you want to see in the office and getting buy-in from influencers/upper management to do the same
