Strategic HR is not about criticizing the HR function, nor is it about lofty HR ideals. Instead, it is a practical and achievable opportunity for HR to play a significant role in driving business profits. This session will present specific actions that HR functions and HR professionals can take to develop and sustain a strategic approach to their work. These actions for HR functions and HR professionals were revealed through survey, case study, and interview-based research conducted by nonprofit APQC. Elissa Tucker, APQC’s human capital management research program manager, will present best practices learned from researching strategic HR functions at IBM Global Business Services and Nissan North America. She will also share strategic HR insights gleaned from interviews conducted with HR bloggers China Gorman, Sharlyn Lauby, and William Tincup.
Social tools allow you to make a big organization feel smaller, more intimate. What leading organizations have witnessed is that by using these tools to make connections, have conversations and build engaged communities, individuals feel a part of something and are willing to give a bit more.
In this presentation, TemboSocial Vice President of Client Strategy David Bator will outline strategies for engaging employees online in 2014. David will offer a peek behind the firewall at how leading organizations are successfully blending strategy and social tools to engage their employees in meaningful conversations with a particular emphasis on multi-generational talent strategies, a holistic approach to social recognition, embracing two-way dialogue in online communications with employees and how celebrating an employee’s personal legacy propels enterprise success.
In a 2013 survey by Bersin by Deloitte, 57% of HR professionals said they plan to purchase new software within the next 18 months. Some of these buyers are bound to face a few challenges during the implementation phase. For many more, the real challenge will begin after the software goes live: getting teammates — and, in many cases, the employee population at large — to actually use the software.
Whether you’re purchasing new HR software or seeking to enhance utilization of your current solutions, we’ll address seven of the most important factors that increase user adoption. During this webinar you’ll learn the following three things and more:
How high adoption ensures a positive ROI and enhances HR’s credibility as an information hub
How involving employees in compensation, career development and learning initiatives help increase adoption
Why the whole point of HR software is to help you improve the ways you serve your organizations
When you think about it, what isn't changing? Industries, organizations, jobs, work, and even people's expectations are shifting. So it's only to be expected that learning will also adapt to meet the needs of all the change around us. This webinar will explore a broad range of topics such as:
• Social learning and how it will continue to evolve to meet new social technologies
• What the Kahn Academy could mean for corporate learning
• The role of accreditation in providing "trophies" to the next generation of learning
• Eight strategies for accelerating development of new employees as experienced employees leave the workplace
• Augmented reality and the implication for just-in-time learning
And in the spirit of social learning, YOU are the content. Bring your ideas to the table to collaborate on understanding the future of learning.

Do you have more than one boss? Do you collaborate with people who are in different functions and locations? Learn how to develop the matrix mindset for success.
In this webinar session, Kevan Hall, CEO of Global Integration (www.global-integration.com) and author of "Making the Matrix Work: How Matrix Managers Engage People and Cut Through Complexity" will identify some of the key challenges with working in a matrix organization.
Based on his work with over 300 major multinationals in more than 40 countries, his time as a corporate line manager leading teams in HR, manufacturing operations and strategic and market planning and his experiences managing his own cross-cultural and remote organization with clients and suppliers around the world, Kevan will introduce challenging but practical ideas for succeeding in this more complex world.
Flipped learning—courseware and recorded content serving as the initial element of a learning experience, with live virtual sessions and social and collaborative tools supplementing and enhancing the learning experience—has the potential to increase learning effectiveness, lower operational costs, and get better retention and more effective application of the learning. The model has created tremendous buzz in the education community, but is it viable for business learning? We believe that effective use of the flipped learning model can transform business learning, improve learning outcomes, and reduce operational costs. Participants in this session will examine the flipped classroom model, learn how to build one, and hear case studies of businesses that are now delivering in this new model.
