NEW YORK, NY ( December 2, 2015) - Human Capital Institute (HCI), the global association for strategic talent management, today announced details of its 2016 Human Capital Summit, the premier event dedicated to accelerating agile workforce performance, taking place in New Orleans on Tuesday, March 29 and Wednesday, March 30, 2016. The event, which will be held at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans, will showcase how attendees can create an agile talent ecosystem that quickly adapts and responds in a dynamic business environment.

"To be sustainable and competitive in today's challenging business climate, organizations must be able to respond in real time to changing priorities to meet current and future needs," said Carl Rhodes, HCI's chief executive officer. "As more companies struggle to keep up with the pace of change, the need for a more flexible talent strategy is clear. We are thrilled to host the 2016 Human Capital Summit and provide the proven strategies to increase organizational performance, build a deep talent bench for succession planning and ultimately create an agile talent ecosystem."

Business agility is key to quickly reading and acting on signals of change so the company can adapt goods and services to meet new customer demands. Also crucial is preparing the workforce to meet changing requirements; with an agile talent strategy, employers can ensure their teams are able to support the business and contribute to continuous improvements throughout the organization. With interconnecting levels of talent management that move past traditional roles, responsibilities and corporate structures, organizations can become more adaptable and fluent in change to ensure a sustainable and optimized approach to enhancing workforce performance.

HCI's 2016 Human Capital Summit will introduce the practices and strategies today's organizations need to create an agile talent ecosystem. Through a two-day agenda of informative and engaging sessions, attendees will learn how to drive rapid workforce development, improve employee engagement and prepare managers to focus on flexibility, speed and changing goals. In addition, attendees will hear engaging keynotes from leaders who have built an agile workforce strategy at their organizations, including: Robbie Bach, former president of Entertainment & Devices and chief Xbox officer at Microsoft; Carmen Allison, vice president of Global Talent Development at Williams-Sonoma; Angela Santone, senior vice president, CHRO at TURNER, a Time Warner Company; Matthew D. Owenby, senior vice president, CHRO at Aflac; and Jeffrey Shuman, senior vice president, CHRO at Quest Diagnostics.

Following the 2016 Human Capital Summit, HCI will hold its Agile Performance Management Certification course at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans from Thursday, March 31 to Friday, April 1, 2016. Through this course, attendees will learn how to reinvent performance management by shifting from ineffective annual performance reviews and rankings to an agile continuous feedback and development model. As more companies seek to scrap the annual evaluation cycle with this new method, the course will teach attendees how to drive change and introduce a more collaborative, social and fast-moving approach to performance management.
