November 7, 2014
8:30 – 9:00 – Registration, coffee, networking time
9:00 – 9:30 – Opening remarks from HRevolution Organizing Team and our sponsors
9:45 – 10:30 – Session 1 Is HR Ready for Feedback?
In this session Mary Faulkner will lead a discussion around feedback for the HR function. Her organization recently did an internal customer satisfaction survey and got some pretty harsh feedback. So, is HR ready to hear feedback? Willing to act on it? How do you filter through the info to find the trends vs the people who aren’t happy? How do you manage a team who works hard but got bad marks for customer service?
10:30 – 10:45 – Refreshment Break
10:45 – 11:30 Session 2 #HRPositive!
This session, led by Paul Hebert and Franny Oxford, will focus on HRPositive – how positive thinking can change the direction and opinion of HR. Why is it important and how HR can create more positive vibes around HR than the negative ones permeating the industry. As Franny says, “The disciplines of gratitude, wonder, and humble joy are deeply powerful, and terrifying. We’re going to offer HRevolution participants the courage to lead themselves and others from that place.”
11:30-12:30 – Lunch Break/Entertainment (Ben Eubanks, Allen Robinson, Rob Caswell, Angie Shaefer, Trish McFarlane)
This lunch session will be a fun, entertaining experience that ties in with one of the things that “in the trenches” HR deals with regularly: how do you know if your employees are lying? Attendees are sure to laugh as we pit people against one another in a battle of wits.
