Shaping the Future of Work

By: Tina Wilson
Tina WilsonA growing body of academy study shows the link between financial and physical health – a linkage with potentially catastrophic results in retirement, where unplanned healthcare costs can cut into retirement savings. For employers, having employees who are not retirement ready can have a material impact on the long-term viability of the company.

This session will allow HR leaders, in partnership with advisors, to financially prove to a CFO that retirement readiness/financial wellness reduces future wage, healthcare and workers compensation expense for the employer. Attendees will also understand what solutions have been offered to mitigate core costs and trend through healthcare and retirement solutions.

Strategic Thinking Shortcuts

By: Alan Feirer
Alan FeirerWe can all think of situations when we spent too much time for too few results on strategic analysis, goal-setting, and action-planning. What if we could spend a fraction of that time on processes that generate measurable short-term results?

We can.

This program provides proven, quick, and sticky ideas to balance the needs of strategic analysis and planning with the limited number of hours in the day.

Learn how to use simple tools that keep people engaged. Tools that everyone can adopt, and find ways to implement.

In the process, we can see change sooner, experience the satisfaction that our time was well-spent, and know we’re on the right track.

Objectives of this presentation include:
At the end of this session, participants will be able to effectively implement the WWW/TALA tool for after-action event or project analysis; describe, use and prescribe the MT goal format – the shorter version of the SMART goal format which yields 80% the same results; and use quick techniques for addressing stuck or neglected action plans quickly and effectively.

Better Background Check Policies
