BROOKLYN, NY – JUNE 25TH, 2012 – The Human Capital Institute, a global association for furthering the science of strategic talent management, has announced its 2012 Employee Engagement Conference, taking place in Seattle, WA, on September 10-12. The conference seeks to showcase successful organizational examples of workforce engagement, as well as help talent leaders determine the best suite of practices for fostering recognition, collaboration and interest.
Even as 90% of business leaders acknowledge that engagement practices directly impact the success of their organizations, 75% still admit they have no plan in place. HCI understands that billions of dollars are at stake when a workforce is disengaged, and has developed this conference in collaboration with leading Fortune 500 organizations to demonstrate how you can revitalize your workforce in a meaningful and measurable way. Over the course of three days, HCI will provide attendees with the opportunity to network and benchmark with their peers, and attend panel discussions led by leading thinkers and practitioners of talent engagement.
Scheduled to speak are some of the brightest stars in the world of innovative engagement practices, including: John Foster, Head of Talent and Organization at Hulu; Lori Emerick, Lisa Bisaccia, SVP and Chief HR Officer for CVS Caremark; Global Director of Management and Leadership at NIKE; Nancy Turner, Global Director of Talent Development at NIKE, Inc.; Mark Austin, Director of Organizational Development at Warner Bros. Entertainment; Deary Paul Duffie, Director of Organization Development at Genentech, Inc.; Dr. Steven Kowalski, Executive Talent Development at Genentech, Inc.; and Tim Bridges, Director of Knowledge Management for Boeing.
The HCI Employee Engagement Conference is made possible by the sponsorship of leading corporations, including Diamond Sponsors Hay Group, Interaction Associates, Kenexa, McLean & Company, TalentKeepers, and Taleo; Platinum sponsor Glassdoor; and Gold Sponsors Ashford University, Avatar HR Solutions, EBSCO Publishing, Globoforce, getAbstract, Root, and Towers Watson.
The conference will be preceded by a day of workshops and networking with peers, beginning with a session led by talent guru and HCI Chief Learning Officer, Dave Forman. Mr. Forman will introduce a newly developed framework for improving practices, systems and culture within an organization, as well as cite examples from leading organizations on how engagement was successfully fostered. Breakout groups will be able to work on several specific ways in which engagement, collaboration and retention can be improved.
