We will speak on both internal social media sites like Yammer as well as external sites like Pinterest, Linkedin and Facebook. We will cover how to introduce social media and what checks and balances are needed to encourage use but discourage sharing of inappropriate content.
“Awaken the Sleeping Giants” poignantly speaks to the pivotal role HR plays at this crucial time. Through a deeper understanding of the upcoming talent shortage and its future implications, HR will be compelled to claim their place at the boardroom table. It will mean partaking in company direction, strategy and equipping the corporate culture with the “Attraction Factor”. HR will have to “stand in the gap” to create a sea-change in thinking, new levels of conscious intention and developing company culture by design rather than by default.
This powerful talk is a must-attend for HR Professionals interested in their organization’s survival.
The Competing Values Framework (CVF) provides a fully validated process to reveal the core cultural values that are motivating the employee behaviors in your organization. The CVF provides a practical approach to profiling organizational culture by measuring the relative emphasis placed on four universal values.
Join Dan Danner and Gordon Carter who will outline in this session that by employing this process, it will allow your organization to develop insights about how their underlying value system influences overall cultural behavior. The ability to “see” how underlying values influence employee behaviors allows leadership to determine how they might leverage, or shift their cultural profile to support strategic organizational initiatives.
Restless Gen-Y workers - often faced with unfulfilling or static positions - frequently leave their posts within two years. But as Millennials become the dominant generation in the office - set to represent 75 percent of the entire workforce by 2025 - companies must learn to keep them engaged and motivated by creating more opportunities for them. How can corporations retain young workers?
In this presentation geared toward HR leaders and managers, speaker Dan Schawbel shares advice, research, case studies (including Sodexo, Ernst & Young, Intel, DreamWorks, and more), and examples to illustrate how employers can both attract and manage Gen-Y workers to allow them to rise up to leadership positions instead of leaving for other opportunities.
