Precision Error Management System
Joe Henderson

This coaching and managing performance discussion will review current challenges organizations face that are the result of undesired outcomes that result from human error. In addition simple but effective methods to minimize human error, thus managing performance, will be reviewed that will result in a positive impact within your organization. Integral to human error reduction is the effectiveness of an observation program that compares observable behaviors to existing standards and expectations. Application of this organizational defense can enable organizations to actually predict when, where and how human error is likely to occur.

Is Your On-Boarding Program Building High-level Engagement?
Karen L. Stacey, CPC, MP-ELI
Kreative Learning Solutions

Recruiting and hiring new employees is an expensive process in terms of dollars, effort and time. What the hiring organization does (or doesn’t do) after the offer is accepted is essential to justifying those costs. In this program we will explore what your organization is currently doing during your onboarding of new hires that is effective as well as look at some new and creative ways to acclimate individuals faster and more productively.
We will look at the steps needed to adjust new hires to the social and performance aspects of their jobs, learn about and integrate into the organizational culture, help them understand their role and other people’s roles within the larger organization, and build high levels of engagement. We will also look at ways to streamline this process using different processes and tools.

CONVERSATIONAL INTELLIGENCE
Keys for turning talk into high impact conversations

Presented by: Ank Stuyfzand LLM, MAOL, PCC

Do you need to address performance issues with key staff? Are you seeking clarity in complex situations? Are you struggling to discuss expectations with employees? Do you need alignment between differing viewpoints? Would you like to get to the root of an issue and resolve it? Are their elephants in the room at your meetings?

As an HR professional, your vision, strategy and execution are only as good as the ability to have candid, effective conversations about them. What you talk about, how you talk about it and who is in the conversation determines what is going to happen. Or, what is not going to happen.

In this workshop we’ll provide a practical framework for successfully navigating difficult and important conversations to get positive results. You will leave with increased (self) awareness and the tools and techniques for high impact conversations. We’ll address ‘how to question’ and ‘what to ask’ to support sound problem solving and decision-making. You’ll be ready to talk with respectful candor and curiosity about the elephants in the room and increase the engagement of the people and teams you work with.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

After attending this workshop, participants will:

  • Have increased self-awareness about their own conversational capacity
  • Understand how to model ‘high impact’ conversations
  • Build their skill in initiating and navigating challenging conversations
  • Have tools and techniques to strengthen the conversational capacity of the people and teams they work with

Upcoming Changes to Overtime Exemption Regulations: What to Expect and How To Prepare

Description:

Upcoming Changes to Overtime Exemption Regulations:
What to Expect and How to Prepare
John Dolan, Jr., Esq.

Changes to the regulations governing exemptions from the overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act are expected to impact employers this coming year. New salary thresholds for exempt status are a virtual certainty. Changes to the duties tests may come as well. Even without imminent regulatory changes, prudent employers are reexamining employee classifications in light of the fact that wage and hour claims have become a growth industry for plaintiffs’ attorneys.

In this program, we will review the current tests for classifying employees as exempt. We will then focus on how proposed changes are expected to impact these tests. Finally, we will examine the steps employers should be taking to prepare for these changes and avoid costly pitfalls in this area.

Updates to the Affordable Care Act

Description:

Updates to the Affordable Care Act
Patrick Haraden, Gallagher Benefit Services

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) survived yet another Supreme Court challenge this summer so barring any last minute legislative action, the ACA is here to stay. In 2015, the biggest impacts for employers will be the applicability of the employer mandate and the required employer reporting to employees and the IRS. In this program, we will review the ACA provisions to date and review the employer reporting requirements and challenges for employers as we approach year end. A look at the future – proposed “Cadillac Tax” and the recent changes to Massachusetts’ health insurance rating rules will also be provided. As always, there will be time for questions and answers.
