Keynote Session

Unlocking Performance on Diverse Teams in Times of Uncertainty

In a time of extraordinary disruption and rapid change, extended periods of uncertainty can often lead to diminished team outcomes. But, skillful leaders can harness specific tools to enable their teams to flourish in complex times. This interactive workshop will focus on the science and skills of psychological safety and team connection, two proven drivers of team performance in moments of disruption.

Join this session with Dr. Vijay Pendakur to learn how to:

  • Leverage scientific evidence supporting the strong connection between diversity and business success
  • Upskill managers to lead psychologically safe teams
  • Harness the behavioral science of team connection to increase team resilience in extended periods of change

Executive Boardroom Sessions

Why Don’t Employees Feel Supported?

Most organizations have expanded benefits in both volume and scope, but many employees are frustrated with information overload and overall employee experience. How can CHROs build meaningful connections between the workforce and their benefits while navigating an ever-expanding technology ecosystem?

Attend this session to learn:

  • Strategies for connecting employee insights to actions to power stronger engagement
  • Ways to integrate employee experiences to increase adoption
  • How organizations can leverage personalization and AI to help people feel seen and cared for

Modifying Org Design for an Efficient Future

The complexities of the modern workforce are reshaping the landscape of business operations and redefining employee responsibilities. In the midst of this ongoing transformation, CHROs must be agile in prioritizing current business needs while championing the development of essential skills.

In this session, CHROs will discuss:

  • Reorganizing the business to ensure efficient workflows and resource allocation
  • Utilizing emerging technologies for employee development
  • Structuring organizational design for hybrid work

Building and Bolstering Better Managers

Managers are feeling the pressure as they balance business priorities with new employee expectations surrounding culture and flexibility. To top it off, managerial approaches that were successful in pre-pandemic times will no longer suffice. To ensure organizational success, CHROs must provide a clear roadmap for leaders from the frontline to the C-suite.

Join this session to discuss:

  • Increasing managerial competence and change management skills
  • Identifying and relieving pressure points within the organization
  • Clarifying managerial priorities to enable executives to focus on broader strategy
