Workshop Topic:  

What's Broken in Performance Management?
SPEAKER: Jim Gallo, MS, SPHR  3:00PM to 5:00PM

Join us to hear more about this exciting topic:  Employees can be a major source of competitive advantage and organizations understand that performance feedback is important for human capital development.  Yet supervisors often put minimal effort into performance assessments, and subsequently employees receive the same minimal benefit.  Effective on-going feedback is key to the success of any performance management program. The lack of a performance feedback dialoged within organizations can be a silent killer. We believe the practice of revamp, revise and incorporate new performance management systems are often misguided strategies and of little value to organizations without understanding the individual complexities of feedback and the context in which they exist.

It is time to change the performance management paradigm!  This session will explore the science of why performance management systems (PMS) continue to be the Achilles heel in performance improvement and will provide practical solutions on changing the paradigm.

Dinner Topic:  

How to Retain Your Talent:  Creating a Positive Culture and Ethical Workplace

SPEAKER: Shannon Lands, SPHR, CMA  6:00PM to 8:00PM


Join us to hear more about this exciting topic: While it typically is not considered HR’s sole responsibility to create a positive culture and ethical workplace, HR does have the responsibility of helping to cultivate and maintain that culture.  When a workplace culture is positive and happy, the employees are happy.  And, as we all know, HR plays a key role in ensuring happy employees!  This session will detail 7 items that help create a positive culture and ethical workplace and how HR can be a strategic contributor in ensuring a company succeeds in those areas.
