EEOC Update
Presented by Fred Bissinger, Regional Managing Member, Wimberly Lawson

Over the past few years, the EEOC has significantly ramped up its enforcement efforts and published numerous regulations, guidance, letters, Q&A fact sheets, etc., on significant employment law issues. The EEOC’s expects employers to understand and timely implement policies, procedures, and practices addressing these evolving employment law requirements. Given how quickly these changes have occurred, adapting to and complying with such change is a tall order for most employers.                         

This presentation will focus on the most important EEOC updates, including among other things, the EEOC’s 2018-2022 Strategic Plan and related issues.                                                        

The three learning objectives are as follows:

  1. Learn about the EEOC’s current enforcement objectives, as set forth in the 2018-2022 Strategic Plan
  2. Learn about practical ways in which to implement practices and procedures to avoid common pitfalls that lead to EEOC Charges (with a focus on the EEOC’s strategic enforcement initiatives)
  3. Learn about practical ways to help supervisors and managers better understand their role and responsibilities in light of the new SEP.

Schedule: Doors open at 11:00 am for registration and networking. Buffet lunch begins at 11:20 am, and the presentation starts promptly at 12 noon.

Lunch:

  • Members: $28 by end of business Monday, May 21, $38 afterwards.*
  • Future Members: $43 by end of business Monday, May 21, $53 afterwards.* (See below)**

Creating an Upside Down Culture
Presented by Turney Stevens, Dean Emeritus, The College of Business at Lipscomb University

It was Nobel Prize winning economist Milton Friedman who said 'The chief duty, indeed the only duty, of management is to maximize shareholder value'.

This statement has been misunderstood and misapplied and created much havoc as well as outright fraud in recent years. Examples include Enron, Healthsouth, Worldcom, Volkswagen and many others.

Is there a better way? Is there a way to maximize shareholder value but also treat customers and colleagues the right way?

Exhibit A is the amazing story of Tractor Supply Company, based in Nashville, with about 1,600 farm supply stores in 44 states. Their organization chart is drawn upside down with the CEO at the bottom instead of the top. Every aspect of the business revolves around servant leadership, all flowing from this commitment.

And how has this worked out for TSC and its shareholders?

That's the amazing part of the story. For 13 consecutive years, from 2000 to 2013, TSC had the highest stock appreciation of any company listed on NASDAQ, including such high fliers as Apple, Amazon and many others. Their story is a case study in how to treat people right and still achieve Friedman's vision of the role of management in protecting and rewarding investors, employees and management.

Schedule: Doors open at 11:00 am for registration and networking. Buffet lunch begins at 11:20 am, and the presentation starts promptly at 12:00 noon.

Lunch:

  • Members: $28 by end of business Monday, June 11, $38 afterwards.*
  • Future Members: $43 by end of business Monday, June 11, $53 afterwards.* (See below)**
  • MT|SHRM Students: $14 by end of business Monday, June 11, $19 afterwards.*

Reward Implications and Strategies for Millennials
Presented by Ken Abosch, Compensation Practice Leader, Aon

Organizations are very curious about the mindset of the millennial and there is a lot of speculation about what it takes to attract, motivate and retain them. Over half of our workers will come from this generation by 2020 and close to three quarters of our workforce will be millennials by 2025. It is time to anticipate how our rewards systems and offerings will need to change in the very near future. This session will focus on the key implications and strategies we should be considering in changing our rewards programs in the next few years to make sure were are ready for the next generation of global workers.
  • This session will take a deeper look at the Millenial demographic preferences that employers must understand and address including research describing expectations and differentiators for their preferred work experiences and rewards.
  • This session will address whether Millenial characteristics are different from other large incoming workforces and discuss how age and life stage events may temper some of their expressed future needs and expectations from employers.
  • This session will assess how the themes identified in Millennial preferences may impact our rewards and performance practices and identify where current designs may be insufficient and how these designs may need to change in the very near future.

Schedule: Doors open at 7:15 am for registration and networking. Buffet breakfast begins at 7:20 am, and the presentation starts promptly at 8:00 am.
Breakfast:

  • Members: $18 by end of business Tuesday, June 12, $28 afterwards*
  • Future Members: $29 by end of business Tuesday, June 12, $39 afterwards.* (See below)**
  • MT|SHRM Students: $9 by end of business Tuesday, June 12, $15 afterwards.*

The 6 Global `Life Languages`
Presented by Megan Johnson, Professor and Consultant of Communication, JMJ Communication Group

Work and communicate better with your colleagues, your team, your subordinates, your superiors in your own office as well as with colleagues or customers in other countries. Better manage conflict, improve productivity, work satisfaction, employee morale, and diversity inclusion as well as overall professional relationships.

Learning objectives include:

1. Understand your own preferences in 2 key life areas and what implications this has on your needs, desires and actions.
2. Realize how your preferences may conflict with people who have different preferences.
3. Understand the benefit of diversity and diverse preferences, beliefs and values.

I will help you become more aware of your personal preferences and beliefs/values in 2 key areas that will help you better understand your own needs and behavior as well as those you work with, live with and socialize with. It's part of 6 dimensions from a tool that I use in my coaching/training business. This Life Languages tool distinguishes cultural dimensions that describe the effects of a society's culture on the values of its members, and how these values relate to behavior. It has become an internationally recognized standard for understanding cultural differences and is widely used in businesses around the world. These life languages are useful whether you work with people from other cultures or not. In this regard, every workplace is a diverse workforce and these 6 life languages help us better communicate and work with those with different beliefs and values than us. The 6 life languages explain 6 areas that different people handle differently: ways of coping with inequality, ways of coping with uncertainty, the relationship of the individual with her or his primary group, the implications of having been born as a girl or as a boy, connection of the past with the current and future actions/challenges, and finally, a measure of happiness and what you believe controls it.


Schedule:
Doors open at 11:00 am for registration and networking. Buffet lunch begins at 11:20 am, and the presentation starts promptly at 12 noon.

Lunch:

  • Members: $28 by end of business Monday, June 25, $38 afterwards.*
  • Future Members: $43 by end of business Monday, June 25, $53 afterwards.* (See below)**
  • MT|SHRM Students: $14 by end of business Monday, June 25, $19 afterwards.*
