HCI ANNOUNCES 4TH ANNUAL NATIONAL HUMAN CAPITAL SUMMIT IN ARIZONA
BROOKLYN, NY – February 9, 2012 – The Human Capital Institute, a global leader in the new science of talent management, has announced its 4th annual National Human Capital Summit, to take place at the Westin Kierland Resort in Scottsdale, AZ.
The stated focus of this year’s Summit will be disruption and innovation in the workforce, to engender radical new solutions for talent management issues. HCI has determined that there is no single greater factor for a company’s success in the present day than innovation, being the only sure-fire way to drive organizational growth, gain critical market share, and insure sustainability. Likewise, HCI recognizes that there can be no innovation without strong, dedicated leadership to leverage the collective power of the workforce. Yet less than 30% of employees polled identify their own CEOs as champions of innovation.
This year’s Human Capital Summit is singularly focused on leading strategies, programs and individuals propelling organizations of every size to tangible growth, increased performance, and a collaborative culture. Over the course of the three-day conference, the Summit will present panel discussions and in-depth interviews with world-renowned talent leaders, allow guests to benchmark and network with their peers, and impart the latest programs and technologies ready to be brought back and implemented in the office.
HCI has invited some of the world’s leaders in innovation and leadership to share what they’ve learned. Scheduled to speak are: Gary Hamel, voted “Most Influential Business Thinker” by the Wall Street Journal; Doug Conant, former CEO of Campbell’s Soup Co., and author of “Touch Points”; Robert Cancalosi, Chief Learning Officer at GE Healthcare and responsible for 55,000 employees worldwide; Michael Alicea, Senior VP of Global HR at the Nielsen Company, and VP Human Resources at VNU/Nielsen Business Media; Lacey All, Director of Strategic Talent Initatives at Starbucks; Peter Sheahan, best-selling author and speaker on exploiting business trends and new markets; Wayne Elsey, Founder and CEO at Soles4Souls; Dr. Debra France, Enterprise Leadership Development at W.L. Gore; and Tony Schwartz, Founder and CEO of the Energy Project and New York Times best-selling author.
