BROOKLYN, NY – August 12, 2013 – The Human Capital Institute (HCI) will return to Chicago for its 2013 Employee Engagement Conference, taking place at the Palmer House on September 23rd – 25th. The event continues HCI’s dedication to showcasing real-world engagement paradigms through presentations from talented business leaders, and unveils a new stated goal: to redefine employee engagement for the New Business Norms.
Following last year’s sold out conference in Seattle, HCI’s Engagement community recognized a new truth: employees’ “willingness” to work no longer guarantees execution. Instead, engagement can be redefined as: the degree of an employee’s positive or negative emotional attachment to their job, colleagues, and organization that strongly influences their willingness to learn and perform at work. For this event, HCI will focus on three main drivers of this new definition of engagement: the culture, which describes the work experience rather than the programs themselves; the relationship between employee, manager and CEO, which should be clearly based on clear and high-touch communications; and employee enablement, giving your talent the skills, tools, and resources to learn, train, and develop correctly.
HCI continues to assemble a diverse roster of engagement and retention professionals, including: Ginger Gregory, Chief Human Resources Officer at Dunkin’ Brands, Inc.; Ed Martin, Chief Learning Officer at Pandora; Nancy Campbell, VP of Human Resources at Ohio State University; Monika Fahlbusch, SVP Global Employee Success at Salesforce; Ellie Gates, Director of Global Management Effectiveness & Performance for Adobe Systems; Kathie Miller, Senior Vice President of Global Learning for Nielsen; Alan Tecktiel, Senior Director at McDonald’s; Janice Weiss, Director of Recognition and Engagement Marketing for Macy’s, Inc., and Sherie Britain, Director of Sales Operations at AT&T Mobility.
This event is made possible through the sponsorship of a variety of organizations, including: Diamond Underwriters Achievers, Bloomfire, Hay Group, Interaction Associates, Kenexa, McLean & Company, Online Rewards, RiseSmart, Root, Inc., TalentKeepers, and Wiley; Gold Underwriters BlessingWhite, Bonfire, Confirmit, Cornerstone OnDemand, EBSCO Publishing, Fierce, Inc., Globoforce, IDG Research Services, Metrus Group, Michael C.
