The Power of the Pyramid for Employee Engagement
Presented by David Zinger
This session will help participants explore, discuss, and apply the 10 blocks of the pyramid of engagement. This is an eclectic and evidence based model that focuses on getting results, maximizing performance, pathing progress, building relationships, fostering recognition, mastering moments, leveraging strengths, making meaning, experiencing wellbeing, and enlivening energy. There is little capacity in most organizations for more so this model offers and integrates rather than offering an additive model of engagement. It is simple to understand and powerful to put into practice. The pyramid demonstrates that robust employee engagement is never more than 10 blocks away.

"What? How? WHY!?" Navigating, Leading, and Engaging Through Change Across the Organization
Presented by Jennifer Lee
Change is everywhere, and we are a constant "makeover" society. From reality shows like "The Biggest Loser" to political and presidential campaigns, our culture is obsessed with the idea of making changes to improve. At the same time, we are incredibly reluctant and uncomfortable with the process of making change, especially in our organizations. Only 24 percent of private sector employees believe change is well managed in their organizations and only 15 percent believe so in the public sector.
Clearly, change is difficult (even scary at times!) and as HR professionals, we have our work cut out for us. Research shows that the top obstacle to successful change is employee resistance across all levels. In this program, we explore the dimensions of change and offer tips for navigating and leading change across your organization seamlessly and cohesively. We cover how to address the fear of the unknown, and we share best practices for communicating change in order to engage your employees while undergoing change. Importantly, we discuss the four stages of managing change and even take a look at individuals who are successful change agents including Oprah, Elvis, Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Theresa, and Steve Jobs to bring these ideas to life.

Panel: Onboarding, Employee Rewards, and Exit Surveys
According to research, one in 25 new employees quits on the first day. Additionally, 37 percent of workers have recently thought of resigning. Statistics like these highlight the importance of recruiting, engaging, and retaining top talent throughout the employee lifecycle.
Our panel will provide detailed best practices for onboarding, engaging, and retaining your team from the very beginning of employment. We will discuss how onboarding practices have a strong influence on employees' initial perceptions of an organization, and how these initial perceptions impact future engagement levels. The panel will also detail the unique role rewards and incentives can play in engaging and retaining new workers. Finally, our panelists will detail how exiting individuals can act as great resources for developing your onboarding and engagement strategies to ensure talent is engaged from day one.
Understanding the initial opinions of employees, how to engage them on the job, and why team members choose to leave will help you create the most developed engagement strategy for recruiting, engaging, and retaining top talent. Do not wait to start further developing your engagement initiatives; join us for actionable advice, best practices, and real-world examples of onboarding and engagement initiatives that work.
Following this panel, participants will have a sense of:
