Innovation Sprint | Presented by: Jason Lauritsen, Suhail Halai

To attend this Innovation Sprint - please register here! Space is limited.

How many times do you attend events, take a lot of notes, but then fail to put them into place when you return to work? This session is designed to break that cycle by giving you the chance to apply real-world “hacking” techniques to your biggest HR challenges and problems.

The end result? Through this creative destruction, we will break some of our old thinking, create new solutions, and then share our work with the other attendees at the end of the event.

If you are an innovative leader that needs a creative outlet, join us.

If could use some ideas for how to be more innovative, join us.

If want to take a break from listening and do some hands-on work, join us.

It is a known fact that a team or company can never outgrow its leaders. If we want our companies to be innovative, we need to practice this ourselves as HR leaders. In this special session, two proven voices in the HR community will moderate participatory sessions designed to help you learn the concepts of hackathons and apply them to the workplace with experiential learning exercises.

Interactive Roundtable | Presented by: Robert Stewart

To attend this Interactive Roundtable - please register here! Space is limited.

Recent research suggests that a large percentage of our employees experience either financial stress, relationship stress, or both. While the numbers of those suffering from these forms of stress have already reached epidemic proportions, data suggests that this problem has actually been getting worse over the last few years (especially for Millennials and Post-Millennials).  Further, since few employees are able to effectively “check their stress at the door,” this stress has a profound impact on the engagement and satisfaction of our employees.

Robert Stewart uses his unusual background (HR professional and social scientist), to provide an intriguing “out of the box” perspective on these contemporary employee challenges. In this interactive roundtable, he will lead a discussion regarding the importance of helping our employees reduce their “at home” stress in order to improve their “at work” engagement. Finally, Robert will share some strategies that can help companies create a game plan to reduce the financial and relational stress within their respective organizations.

You will learn:

  • How this stress not only impacts the health and happiness of our employees, but how costly is also is to our organizations
  • Why these forms of stress are often “invisible” to supervisors and colleagues and how we can change our culture so employees no longer suffer in silence
  • How to combat these problems with effective (but largely unused) social science solutions
