Detailed Agenda    

12:30 – 12:45 pm: Registration, Lunch, Exhibit Area Open, Peer Networking, Product Demonstrations

12:45 – 1:15: The Latest Trends and Developments in HR Management.
Human resource trends change just as frequently as fashion (if not more). Because the industry is constantly evolving, regulations regularly adapting, and employees changing as well, small businesses have to be flexible enough to keep up with them. Whether you have a larger human resources department or you are handling all of the HR work yourself, you can get a step ahead by familiarizing yourself with these emerging human resource trends in 2015. Generation Z Has Arrived, Millenials Move Into Leadership Roles, What Employees Treasure Most Now, Managing Dropping Retention Rates, Ways to Leverage Social Media for Recruitment, and managing recent developments.

1:15 – 1:30 pm: The State of Workforce Planning: Best Practices.
What are the essential ingredients for work force planning success? What work force planning strategies, processes, and practices give your organization an advantage over competitors? This session will cover key elements such as how to better; Formalize and standardize work force planning processes, Ensure work force planners have analytical skills and knowledge of strategy and operations, Align financial and HR data. Establish standard, enterprise-wide data definitions, Use work force planning and analytics software to enable the process, Focus on critical roles and skills that are required to execute strategy, and more.

1:30– 2:00 pm: What's Working in Sourcing Talent and Recruiting.
As companies confront increasing competition for highly skilled workers, cost constraints and the need for speed and precision when filling open roles, HR managers and recruiters are turning to advanced tools. Candidate identification is the most critical step in the talent acquisition/recruiting life cycle – you can’t build a relationship with, receive a referral from, network with, or hire someone you haven’t found in the first place. Whether you’re searching LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Monster, your ATS/CRM, or you’re Googling for candidate leads on the Internet – following and integrating these search best practices into your candidate sourcing routine can dramatically increase your ability to more quickly find more of the right people.

2:00 – 2:30 pm: Coffee/Refreshment Break, Product Demonstrations, Exhibit Area Open

2:30 – 3:00 pm: Strengths and Weaknesses of key HRMS and HRIS Systems.
Most of the top human resource management systems offer very similar core features. However, they do differ significantly when it comes to key strengths, weaknesses, and advanced features such as analytics, security, workflow and talent management. In this session you will hear what works best for different organization types, the latest capabilities, and how to best leverage them for HR success.

3:00 – 3:30 pm: Real Time HR Performance Management.
There’s a need for a fundamental shift in how organizations look at and use performance management. Today’s organizations move more quickly than ever and often require collaboration to get things done. They can no longer afford to wait 12 months to get feedback on employees’ progress toward goals. As the workplace evolves, we need to find new processes that support contemporary business challenges. Come learn about the latest trends such as Social Performance Management (SPM) in turbocharging your internal processes.

3:30 – 4:00 pm: Compensation Trends and Outlook.
With unemployment rates continuing to drop how should you prepare for the inevitable shift back to material compensation increases? Did projections about salary increases, guaranteed cash and other employee reward elements come to fruition last year, or did shifting regional economies and markets create unexpected scenarios? What's the compensation outlook for later this year? This session will cover the latest trends in core salaries, benefits, bonuses, Pay for Performance, Long-Term Incentives (LTIs), and how to best prepare for next year.

4:00 – 4:30 pm: Improving Results with Data Driven HR Decisions.
It’s not news that the rise of big data is a leading focus in HR and the push for HR departments to embrace data driven decision making strategies is a major focus across the industry. Much has been said about the importance of HR Analytics and the early results suggest that organizations who are adopting data analytics to support HR decisions are reaping the benefits. Introducing analytics to the Human Resources Line of Business (HRLOB) requires new skills. This session will cover what is needed and what is working.

4:30 – 4:45 pm: End of Event, Raffle Prize Drawings for a Tablet, Gift Cards and other great items!
