Specifically, you’ll walk away knowing how to:

  • Speak to the fundamentals of compensation using common language
  • Partner with total rewards colleagues to make the most of your compensation dollars
  • Connect pay solutions with business objectives
  • Have productive conversations with managers and employees about individual compensation

Lessons Learned from a CHRO: How to Get the Role, How to Succeed in the Role, and What to Watch for as the Role Evolves
Presented by Glenn O Maul, Managing Partner, The Maul Group

 

Whether you want to be the CHRO, CPO, VP HR, or SVP HR, as the top HR person in your company, the elements of success are quite similar. That’s because the role of the CHRO has evolved to where it only dimly resembles what we knew just 5-10 years ago. Economic imperatives, shifting demographics, and cultural change have led CEOs and Boards of Directors to increase their expectations of their CHROs. Human capital is increasingly a key factor for enterprise evaluation and a differentiator among organizations and their competitors. 

So, today’s CHRO must be a trusted advisor for the CEO, a driver of the talent pool for the company, and a guardian of the culture. A CHRO must also be able to define a strategic plan for the function, gain buy-in from top leadership including, in many cases, the Board of Directors, build a team of talented professionals, and be able to lead the function for seamless execution of the plan. Today’s CHRO must demonstrate the value added to the organization by the HR function, and do so with hard data.

Key learnings from the session will be:

  • Getting to the top HR role is much more complicated and arduous than in the past and the incumbent must be able to deliver key outcomes. The presenter will detail those outcomes and competencies necessary to be considered for the role.
  • To stay in the role for any length of time requires several critical competencies. Simply running an effective HR administrative function is not enough. The speaker will unveil those competencies with supporting facts.
  • The CHRO role of the future will become even more visible and expectations of performance will magnify. The speaker will share his perspectives on the changing role.

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, March 5, $38 afterwards.*
  • Future Members: $43 by end of business Monday, March 5, $53 afterwards.* (See below)**
  • MT|SHRM Students: $14 by end of business Monday, March 5, $19 afterwards.*

*On-line registration will close by end of business 2 days prior to the event. Our ability to accommodate walk-in registrations will be based on space availability.

EEOC Update
Presented by Fred Bissinger, Regional Managing Member, Wimberly Lawson Wright Daves & Jones

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