Five New Ways to Move Beyond Status Quo Technology Implementation
HRIS and other talent technology intiatives such as ERP and cloud migrations can fail in implementation due to mis-alignment with business objectives and/or user adoption rates. In many cases, internal business users will avoid or fail to give their buy-in to the launch of a solutions launch. It is time to move beyond the "status quo" of typical HR technology applications to an experience that supports workforce effectiveness and personal productivity.
This session, based on the studies of hundreds of successful technology implementations, will help HR leaders and their executive team counterparts use new "next practices" alignment and engagement techiques to accelerate successful outcomes to their technology launch(es).
The session will give participants both strategic perspectives and practical tips, as well as provide a case study with the Boys & Girls Clubs, around the selection, creation and implementation of new applications that enhance the overall work experience rather than simply compliance or maintenance uses.
> How to link to technology projects to overall business objectives- not HR but PA (People Apps that work).
> Building a user experience that truly engages them.
> Integrating other major initiatives such as intraprenuership and employer branding to your technology launch.
Every day, we see them! Those awkward, uncomfortable and emotionally charged situations we’re just not sure how to address. You know, the “Elephant in the Room”. Unclear of a course of action, we’re tempted to simply ignore them, hoping they’ll go away. Problem is, these issues do just the opposite of what you’d like. They grow, propagate and start breeding new problems.
There’s good news! These “Elephants” can be overcome – successfully and permanently. What’s more, they can empower you to achieve results you’ve never thought were possible.
Join us for this interactive, results-driven discussion on how to identify, address, and eliminate these “taboo topics” we try so hard to ignore, avoid and sweep under the rug.
Fifteen states and the District of Columbia currently have laws permitting certain individuals legally to possess and use marijuana. How should employers handle employees who qualify for marijuana use under these statutes? Can employees be fired for the medical use of marijuana? Must an employer accommodate an employee’s use of marijuana under the Americans With Disabilities Act? What if the employer wants to make an exception to its drug free workplace policies for the medical use of marijuana? Would such an exception violate federal law? In this program, we will examine state statutes permitting medical use of marijuana and recent case law interpreting these statutes in the context of the employment relationship. We will also discuss best practices in drafting and enforcing an effective drug-free workplace policy.
No matter how you label it, disruptive behavior, workplace bullying, incivility or harassment, it's all drama. Could it be that we are using different language to describe the same issues? In this webinar professional speaker and author of Stop Workplace Drama, (Wiley 2011) Marlene Chism gives you a new language to identify and eliminate drama at the core before it turns into turnover, absenteeism and low morale. You will learn about the Karpman Drama triangle as a method to identify behavioral issues and to help you lead others while managing yourself. You will get specific communication skills to help you coach employees who are stuck or resisting your direction.
As employers consider adopting LGBT-friendly benefit policies, they confront questions regarding eligibility, verification issues, plan amendments, tax compliance, civil rights issues, compliance with ever-changing state and municipal law, and even new requirements for companies seeking certain government contracts. Companies that have adopted domestic partner policies will have to deal with eligibility, compliance, and tax reporting issues that they did not have before. Moreover, the domestic partnership landscape has been changing constantly as more municipalities add domestic partner registries and impose new requirements on contractors, and as more states recognize gay marriage. This session educates the HR professional on the various compliance and legal issues they may face when implementing and administering a plan that provides domestic partner benefits.
As the term ‘workplace bullying‘ becomes increasingly anchored in everyday language, people are quicker to label some legitimate managerial activities as bullying. And in an increasingly bully-saturated landscape, some employees have become increasingly militant in exercising their rights, even when no real harm was intended or done. In this landscape, even good, well-intended managers can inadvertently find themselves accused of bullying. When that happens, it’s costly to the organization and messy for all who are involved.
This powerful session will reveal the top three situations that get managers into trouble. We will then outline a clear roadmap and industrial-strength strategies for establishing a proactive leadership style that will prevent these false accusations from getting triggered in the first place.
