The velocity and turbulence of change that is impacting businesses is expected to continue to escalate in 2015, driven by dynamic markets, increased regulations and a shrinking talent pool. The need for HR to be aligned and supporting the organization will be never greater, and yet the HR model in most cases is still built on the traditional “command and control” model of tactics, reaction and cost.
How to Re-think HR:
HR functions are often built around an organization, processes and/or activities from years past and simply “patched up” or had elements bolted on that never really fit. This session will focus on how to rethink the HR model and energize your team around moving beyond the status quo in the process by using new innovation methods.
Build a better Business Contribution Case:
How to develop a business-driven case for change that focuses on HR service improvements that contribute direct, line of sight benefits to the organization value proposition. A “next practices” approach implies that some HR activities must change and other must go. This presentation will help the audience focus on improvements that are of highest value to the organization, and outsource or eliminate others. These changes, from incremental to disruptive, go beyond the superficial to get at new service models, processes and tools that deliver what the organization needs on a timely basis.
How to develop Contextual IQ:
A new set of skills, adaptability, empathy and competencies will be needed in today’s global marketplace. Collaboration, alignment, innovation, transparency, execution and continuous learning will be of paramount importance. This session will address how to assess your organization is prepared to meet these challenges develop the workforce to excel in this environment.
The Self Directed Workforce:
New generations in the workforce, leveraging technology, will require less structure and more freedom to think, create and contribute. Job descriptions, performance reviews and compensation methods must all evolve to attract and retain today’s talent.
This presentation summarizes the “next” thinking and emerging trends in these areas.
9h30 - 10h30, Discussion with audience.

Strategic Global Mobility / Global HR practices
include measuring effective English proficiency and communication across cultures and borders
... and why it matters!
Lorelei Carobolante, MBA, GPHR, SCRP, SGMS-T
President and CEO
There is a lot of ambiguity around what high-stakes 'workplace English' proficiency tests are and are not— including how to use them and why HR leaders need to understand test purpose in context with test validity (fair, non-biased, reliable) for legally defensible decision-making. For example, how to decide what scores will be required based on job functionality, business process outsourcing, performance management, workforce mobility, etc.
Measurement is always a challenge for HR professionals. Being able to measure effective communication (can and will do skills) directly contributes to strengthening strategic HR skills and relationships with other business units and senior management.
If you have global HR responsibilities in the US and/or abroad, this interactive session is for you. Increase awareness about English proficiency demand trends that are affecting your organization (e.g., workplace/team interaction, performance and productivity, as well as employee engagement and retention).
