Agenda

4:00pm - 5:00pm  Executive Networking Reception

5:00pm - 6:30pm  Discussion Topics

Fostering Critical Skills That Propel Organizational Priorities

Lack of skilled, available talent and widespread existing workforce skill shortages are plaguing industries across the US while organizations work to staff a quickly changing business landscape. HR leaders are at a critical crossroads: low manager competency, limited talent pools, and rapidly evolving HR technologies pose significant challenges and opportunities as they lead through ambiguity.

In this interactive conversation among peers, CHROs will discuss their role in creating a high-performing workforce that delivers effectively and efficiently.

Driving business value through workforce strategy

  • What investments are you making in on-the-job learning and skills enhancement?
  • How are you partnering across the enterprise to get visibility into current skill gaps?
  • What steps have you taken to address the challenges?

Positioning for prosperity

  • How are you forecasting future skill needs to set the workforce up for success?
  • How are you coaching people leaders on empathetic change management?
  • What successes have you seen in evolving the employee value proposition to appeal to a broader talent pipeline?

6:30pm - 7:00pm  Networking Break

7:00pm - 8:00pm  Summary Discussion & Dinner

Returning to in-person conferences


We are excited to welcome you back, in person, to Evanta gatherings.

As previously shared, Evanta will hold in-person programs only in locations that meet our stringent health and safety criteria to help ensure the well-being of our participants, partners, and our associates. These criteria include adhering to government, venue, and health agency guidelines in addition to taking all practical steps on-site.

Please note that our onsite planning will continue to evolve, and all measures will be subject to change to ensure the best and safest possible experience. Please refer to our COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocols for up-to-date local guidelines.

MORE INFORMATION

What you can expect onsite

Evanta, with support and agreement from the host venue, is following the latest guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). People who are in a public environment, who are fully vaccinated*, no longer need to wear a mask. Those who are not fully vaccinated should continue to wear face masks indoors and in some outdoor settings.

We encourage you to stay home if you are not feeling well or believe you may have been exposed to COVID-19, regardless of your vaccination status. If an attendee does not feel well on-site, we will work with the venue to coordinate additional health and safety support.

Evanta will also implement the following measures at the conference:

  • Increased cleaning and sanitizing of the event space
  • Decreased capacity and minimized congestion where possible across the venue, including more space in aisleways
  • Touchless or reduced contact interactions throughout the program

*For the purposes of this guidance, people are considered fully vaccinated for COVID-19 ≥2 weeks after they have received the second dose in a 2-dose series or ≥2 weeks after they have received a single-dose vaccine.
