The ABC's of Keeping XYZ's: Managing Generational Expectations

By the year 2025, Generation Y will comprise three-fourths of the workforce, and Gen Z, accounting for more than 25% of the US population, will start flooding the workplace.

Each generation brings new expectations with it, and as a result, organizations must adapt and meet, or surpass, those expectations in order to find better ways to attract and retain the top talent crucial for organizational success.

Social Media and Its Many Workplace Complications
Presented by Tom Whitworth, Associate, Ogletree Deakins

Social media can be both friend and foe to employers. Social media presents unique opportunities for employers to enhance the hiring process, to access data, and to provide information to employees. More recently, however, the use of social media has become an important issue when dealing with employment and post-employment issues. Social media may give an employer information management would rather not have, such as notification of an employee’s disability or other protected status.

Moreover, issues have arisen relating to disputed ownership of social media accounts, customer information, and trade secrets, as well as the ways social media impacts confidentiality, nonsolicitation, and noncompete agreements. This presentation will examine each of these issues and provide best practices and practices to avoid.

During this session, participants will:

  1. Learn the correct uses of social media in the workplace, including recruiting and post-termination usage;
  2. Learn to avoid the common pitfalls and mistakes related to the use of social media in the workplace; and
  3. Learn the strategies necessary to design and implement an effective social media policy that protects the employer without violating the law.

Schedule: Doors open at 7:15 am for registration and networking and buffet breakfast. The presentation starts promptly at 8 am.

Breakfast:

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

Supreme Court to Decide Major LGBTQ Civil Rights Cases
Presented by
Kim Vance, Shareholder, Baker Donelson

Jimmy Buffett singing “changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes” may be just the thing to kick off this dynamic discussion of the three LGBTQ workplace discrimination cases pending before the Supreme Court. HR professionals are looking for answers to the following LGBTQ related questions:

  • Will the Court determine existing federal laws prohibiting sex discrimination also prohibit
    discrimination based on sexual orientation, transgender and/or gender identity?
  • What is “gender identity” and how will it impact your workplace if it becomes a
    protected class?
  • Could Congress pass the Equality Act regardless of how the Supreme Court rules?
  • Join Kim Vance, attorney with Baker Donelson, for an engaging presentation exploring these
    and other cutting edge LGBTQ employment law issues.

Registration: MTSU Faculty or Student: $5; Member Registration: $20 by end of business Wednesday November 13, $25 afterwards.

 

This program has been submitted to SHRM Certification and HR Certification Institute for review.

Healthcare Ate My 401(k) Contributions
Presented by Rocke D. Blair,
Managing Director, HUB International

The economics of a healthy workplace and how workplace wellness is a “win-win” strategy, improving both employees’ health and employers’s bottom line. Once quantified, prescriptive solutions can be initiated to impact key cost drivers to employer wage & benefit spend to maximize employee retirement readiness and shareholder return.

Using data, analytics and insights, segmentation of employee demographics can bright line solutions that optimize retirement readiness to the unique needs of employees based upon their age, family status, income, etc. vs. a “one size fits all” approach. Proper Investment glide-path construction is key to retirement readiness as it protects against the impact a potential “black-swan” event has on wage & benefit spend.
