Is employee engagement improving or declining? Have the drivers of engagement changed over time? Who is responsible for engagement? Why aren't the least engaged employees actively looking for jobs elsewhere. These questions and more will be answered as Don MacPherson unveils Modern Surveys Fall 2013 Employee Engagement Study of the U.S. Workforce.
Twice annually, Modern Survey polls a panel sample of full-time employees to learn how they feel about their relationship with their organization, how effectively they are being led, whether or not they have the tools and training to do their job, and how well their organizational goals are communicated throughout the organization.
Most HR and IT organizations face complexity in assembling and communicating insight to business leaders, especially when working with workforce data. This “telling of the story” is one of the most common challenges cited by HR leaders who are “data rich” but “information poor”. This presentation will discuss the importance to HR professionals of utilizing workforce metrics and analytics, the need for more effective data-driven stories, and six steps to improving the likelihood that managers and leaders will understand and utilize workforce data for the purpose of talent management decision-making. The steps to be covered include:
Organizational Strategic Plans are calling for talent to deliver on aggressive agendas with limited resources in a whole new set of work realities. It is vital that HR professionals adopt a whole new approach in regards to ensuring that human resources are able to deliver on the strategic goals of the organization.
Join Cy Wakeman, New York Times bestselling author and blogger, in this session where she’ll introduce a revolutionary new performance metric for quantifying employee value to the organization. Cy will reveal five groundbreaking findings, “New Rules of the Workplace” that call for HR to completely change its approach to managing change, measuring performance, and creating engagement to truly support business missions and strategies.
Too often people make the mistake of thinking performance management means only performance reviews. Don’t make that same mistake. You’d be doing your employees and your company a big disservice.
It is an important fact that performance management needs to be on going. It’s not a once-a-year, on-the-fly performance review. Having a performance management system is about engaging employees in the company’s vision and direction.
HR departments play a vital role in the strategy, implementation, and execution of the performance management process. In this session, we will dissect the elements of a performance management system, walking participants through each phase and explaining how companies and employees can be better aligned with workplace performance and business growth. Highlights include hiring right; developing and committing to effective goals geared toward business alignment; creating effective development plans; performance review automation and why it’s important; effective communications; and compensation.

Fifty to 60% of companies fail to achieve their goals and objectives (Source: McKinsey & Co and IBM Global Business Services). What can be done about this and whose responsibility is it to see that the situation improves?
The first question is why does this happen with the answer being because employees don’t know what they need to do to help the company achieve its goals and objectives, and/or because they are too preoccupied with personal issues to do what is expected of them.
The responsibility for this rests with the CEO, however he or she can’t do what is needed alone. While Human Resources should be the obvious choice to address this problem it is not viewed as a “line” function as often as it is “staff”, and as a result, they are not called upon to help with goal achievement.
This presentation discusses both the problem (why companies fail to achieve their goals and objectives) as well as what HR can do to gain the trust of senior management regarding their contribution to the overall effort.
