Know Your People: Tackling Attrition and Retention Through Employee Listening

August 11th, 1pm ET

Employees’ priorities around the world are continuing to change, with the ongoing after effects of the pandemic only accelerating this transformation. We saw this manifest earlier in the year in the Great Resignation trend, and we should expect to see further market challenges in the months to come. How can organizations keep close touch with their employees and avoid being swept up in these external trends?

Join this roundtable for the opportunity to discuss:

  • What is the best practice for implementing new employee listening strategies?
  • How can we translate these insights into impactful action?

Rebalancing Employee / Employer Expectations in a Post-Pandemic World

September 15th, 1pm ET

After two years of adjusting to remote work through necessity, people professionals are now faced again with transitioning their teams and organizations into new working models. This comes with its own host of challenges - employee expectations have changed, and not always in line with what the business needs. What do we need to do to re-establish the balance?
Join this roundtable alongside a group of your peers to discuss:

  • What strategies will help us better understand changing employee expectations?
  • How can we best maintain engagement with employees through difficult transitions?
  • How can data better enable HR leaders to help their organizations and employees adapt?
  • How should we adjust our Future of Work strategies based on what we know now?

Reducing Burnout through Humanized Conversations

October 13th, 1pm ET

The barriers between home and work have been knocked down – we live where we work, work where we live, and are accessible at all times, even when in neither of these places. In a recent Korn Ferry study, 89% of professionals feel they are suffering from burnout, and 81% say they are more burned out now than at the start of the pandemic. HR leaders and managers are more focussed than ever on looking after their people – so why are we not seeing an impact?
In this interactive roundtable, we will discuss:

  • How do we create cultures and spaces of psychological safety, where people can communicate their feelings freely
  • What tools do managers need to understand and address these concerns and lead wellbeing conversations sensitively?
  • How can we uncover the moments that matter in employee wellbeing and translate that into impactful initiatives?

Meet the Speakers

Matt Orozco - Sr. Manager, Mindset & Retention Programs - Workday

Over the past 12 years (and counting) my experience has ranged from providing telecommunications packages to SMB, evangelizing cloud-based talent management to public sector agencies, driving initial customer acquisition for a small HCM startup, and working with healthcare and public sector clients at one of the 10 most valuable brands in the world.

After years of working on the sales side of tech, it was time for a change. As someone who has enjoyed an immense amount of pleasure working in the HR Tech field, I wanted to share my passion for making work better through tech in another aspect of the business world.

Having spent 10 years working with tech that touches almost all aspects of the talent lifecycle, I had observed first-hand how much more integrated technology was becoming in the HR function and how critical it would be in the fast-changing landscape of human resources.

Speaker for the first roundtable on August 11th, 1pm ET.
