Closing the Employee Expectations Gap: The Undeniable -- and Promising -- New Mandate for Business
We have reached the tipping point when it comes to employee expectations — and business leaders who fail to heed this urgent message do so at their peril. According to a new research study conducted by Blue Beyond Consulting and Future Workplace, the trends are clear: People want to work for companies whose values align with their own values. They also expect leaders to role model and stand up for those values in the broader society. Join Cheryl Fields Tyler and Judy Dutton as they delve into the three dimensions of business as a force for good — good for me (the employee), good for us (the organization) and good for the world (the broader society). Jeanne Meister will moderate as Fields Tyler and Dutton examine the factors that business leaders, HR leaders, and knowledge workers all agree are key for creating and sustaining an effective company culture, and the surprising disconnect over how these groups think their organizations are measuring up. Finally, they will offer innovative ways leaders can take action to close this employee expectations gap, especially in light of the “Great Resignation,” to attract and retain happy and productive employees during this unparalleled time.

The Role of Resilience in the Hybrid Workplace
Resilience plays a key role in the hybrid work world. A more resilient workforce is one that is more open to change, has the agility to embrace a new way of working, and better handles the stress that uncertainty produces. As Jan Bruce, CEO and co-founder of meQuilibrium says in Forbes, “Managing now includes new aspects of physical and psychological safety alongside new business models, new financial constructs, and the opportunity for what feels like a fresh start, where we’re beholden to fewer legacy approaches and policies than ever. It’s a time of change and change and resilience are now inseparable partners.” This session will feature HR leaders who will share what their commitment to employee wellbeing means in the context of hybrid work: a more dispersed workforce, greater reliance on digital tools, the need to predict wellbeing risks, and the need to ensure employees feel safe. Including: The various ways companies are building wellbeing and resilience practices in place to reinforce a company’s commitment to support all employees from frontline essential workers to knowledge workers; The unique challenges to employee wellbeing and mental health, and the impact on employee resilience; The growing expectation of employees to work for an employer that focuses on and believes in their wellbeing.

The HR Business Partner R(Evolution): Creating Greater Strategic Value for the Organization
The HR Business Partner role is ripe for change. In the past, HR transformation has largely focused on leveraging technology to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of HR offerings. Now, as organizations and their HR functions have entered a period of “new normal”, HR Business Partners can not merely support business goals, instead they must take a leadership position to enable, drive, and be the catalyst for driving strategic initiatives of the business. As evidence of this massive change, forward-looking HR functions have created a number of new HR job roles including Global Head of Employee Experience, AI For HR Data Scientist, and Future of Work Leader, all profiled in the HBR article authored by Jeanne Meister and Robert Brown, 21 HR Jobs of the Future. By contrast, the role of the HR Business Partner has largely focused on providing “one size fits all solutions”, and current training has often focused on developing general business, financial, and HR process administration skills. With massive change escalating the importance and the role of HR Business Partner, incumbents and the next generation of HR Business Partners must acquire a new set of skills and capabilities. Join Michael Martin and Jenny Wich to learn about the future of the HRBP.
