A great culture is one of the key drivers of an organization’s success. But what if a great culture wasn’t about just creating high employee engagement, but also great business process management? Nationwide, organizations spend nearly $2 billion on efforts to increase employee engagement, yet only 13% of employees are highly engaged.

1. Understand what business process management is.
2. Identify how business process management can positively impact your culture.
3. Identify 2-3 places you can start with process management in your organization.
4. Identify barriers to process management in your organization.

To register: Performance Management: To Review or Not to Review; That is the Question.
With our economy in full recovery, it is a critical time for HR to step back and develop a strategy that ensures sustainability in our dynamic markets. As we experience increased competition for talent, rising costs of operations, greater demands from our customers and constantly changing technologies, we must implement people practices that drive success.

In this session we will ask and answer key questions about the ROI of the traditional annual performance review platform. We will introduce evidence-based innovations that are gaining traction in the modern workplace.

To register: Work-Life Fusion
Should we feel guilty when we check work email during family time? Are we cheating our company when we text our kids during the workday? With technology that connects all aspects of our lives and different expectations from multiple generations in the workplace, it is harder than ever to separate our personal and professional lives and achieve the balance we’ve all been striving for. Perhaps we should stop trying to achieve perfect balance and strive for a healthy fusion instead. In this session, we’ll introduce the concept of work-life fusion and discuss practical ways to find and maintain the right fusion for you.
1. Differentiate between work-life balance and work-life fusion
2. Articulate aspects of your roles that build energy and areas that drain energy
3. Learn to create an individual approach to infuse more energy builders into your day
4. Explore tools for building an individualized plan that encompasses an infused approach to achieving personal and professional goals, while maintaining personal wellness
