Why Remote Work Creates Opportunity for a More Diverse Workforce
This panel will dive into studies and trends that we are seeing in the ‘new normal’ with remote-first work, specifically in how beneficial it has been in allowing opportunities for employers to expand their talent search to virtually (and literally) any geography on earth. This has drastically opened up the opportunity to find and hire employees from a variety of diverse demographics.
1:00 pm
How to Get Retention Right From the Start
Let’s stop the trend of employees leaving jobs before things really get going. Issues around performance and role, working relationships, and general workplace stress can be the biggest contributors of turnover in new hires. Together, we can acknowledge the gaps that exist in your employee experience starting from that moment your new hire says yes.
2:00 pm
Ending the Workplace Mental Health Crisis — How to Improve Employee Mental Health Long-Term
Employees are increasingly blaming their jobs for their unhappiness. Likely, it’s more of a convenient target than the true source. Employee dissatisfaction is leading to record-high resignation rates. In this talk, Meru Health’s CEO, Kristian Ranta, will share how we can start addressing the true root cause of mental health problems and how HR professionals can support their employees on their path toward long-term mental wellbeing.
3:00 pm
Evolving the Employee Experience for 2022
Is your organization ready to evolve with your employees? This panel will cover the trends we’re seeing in employee engagement, individuality, work-life expectations, mental health, productivity, and much more heading into a rapidly changing employee experience landscape.
4:00 pm
Why your top priority in 2022 should be solving The Connection Gap
Did you know almost 80% of employees want to work in a place where they feel connected to the purpose and the people? More than that, nearly 3 in 5 would consider quitting their job if they didn’t feel connected at work, according to new research from Blueboard. But while employees crave workplace connection, organizations are struggling to deliver—especially in our new hybrid work world—creating an urgent Connection Gap. Join us for a conversation with Blueboard VP of People and Culture, Allyson Tom, on what it means to feel connected at work, why it’s essential for your people and your culture, and strategies you can use to help your employees create and nurture that sense of connection. In this session, you’ll learn: How to understand workplace connection using Blueboard’s four-level framework, The most urgent employee connection gaps according to new survey data, Strategies to empower your organization and People leaders to boost workplace connection.
