  • Navigating the Uneven Road of A.I. Recorded: Feb 24 2021 43 mins
    Morgan Cundiff, Data Scientist, ShopRunner
    What are the traps and pitfalls we can fall into while using Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to help us recruit? In this talk we will cover, at a high level, how Machine Learning models function and what this means for our end results. We’ll learn about how bias and inequality can be introduced, or solidified in our process and even what we can look for in the planning phase when considering a new project on outsourcing with a new partner. You will leave with a better understanding of machine learning as what is important to be aware of in your current system or a new one to be aware of bias and inequality. This talk will help you make sure you’re adding the right value without blocking the best people from entering your sourcing pipeline or making it through to the hire all because of a Machine Learning service.
  • Reengineering Workflows with AI to Optimize Human Impact and Talent Recorded: Feb 24 2021 32 mins
    Gary Parilis, Associate Partner, Advanced Analytics & AI & Eric Bokelberg, HR Innovation Leader, Talent & Transformation, IBM
    The talent environment is undergoing a revolution, with employee-centricity along with data analytics and AI driving the transformation. Companies have long known that getting the greatest value out of their workforce requires an investment in technology, but technology alone is not enough. While software and automation can reduce human effort, they tend to serve single functions. Technology needs to be part of holistic workflows, re-engineered to optimize human impact and enhance employee experience. Such intelligent workflows:

    Apply AI, analytics, and automation to augment human actors, not to replace them
    Make human touchpoints more impactful and efficient
    Perform end-to-end processes across business functions
    Are architected to support measurable, planned, value-based outcomes

    Analytics and AI benefit the talent landscape across the employee lifecycle, and many applications can be integrated into intelligent workflows, such as:
    Improving hiring & onboarding processes
    Maximizing employee engagement
    Predicting, understanding, and reducing turnover
    Inferring proficiency in skills needed in each role
    AI-driven compensation recommendations for managers
    Identifying future leadership potential

  • We only hire the best and brightest here: Tools for True Diverse Hiring Recorded: Feb 23 2021 55 mins
    Jodi Detjen, Managing Partner, Orange Grove Consulting
    Even with the best intentions, systemic practices can thwart inclusive hiring. Unfortunately, this is particularly the case for organizations that incorporate AI and other software into their hiring process. Research shows that organizations who believe most fervently they are a meritocracy are actually the most biased. But how can you ferret out bias from your hiring processes? First, by becoming aware of the unconscious bias that may influence your hiring process: from how your job descriptions are written, to where you’re looking for talent, and finally, to how you interview candidates.

    Whether intentional or not, you likely have some unconscious bias permeating throughout your hiring process. From the word choices you use on the descriptions, the ways you market the job, or your recruiting networks. There’s so much you can learn about how your process functions, especially when it comes to analyzing the “no” pile.

    This presentation will dive into individual aspects of the hiring process, as well as the hiring journey more holistically, in order to show where you may be undercutting your diverse hiring efforts. Participants will develop a methodology and new tool kit to create a more inclusive hiring process, and ultimately more diverse — and productive — teams.

    Participants will learn to:

    - Justify the need for a cognitively diverse team
    - Analyze and optimize job descriptions for a diverse candidate pool
    - Inclusive recruiting methods through “how” and “where”
    - Understand how unconscious bias impacts the interview process

  • Where Do You Bury Your Dead: The Importance of Off Boarding Recorded: Nov 5 2020 60 mins
    Brandi E Hudson, HR Consultant & Director, BEH HR
    So much time is spent on culture and the front end of the employee life cycle. We focus on Onboarding, Learning and Development, Diversity and Inclusion, etc. but how does your organization handle the end of the employee life cycle? When you have bad off boarding and don't communicate with your team it leaves room for stories and rumors. Not only does it create fear but it also makes your team wonder if they're safe. Coming up with an off boarding plan that suits your organization is just as important as the onboarding process.

    Remember people matter just as much at the end of their tenure as the beginning no matter the reason for their departure. So I'll ask - How do you bury your dead?

    Three specific Learning Objectives achieved by attending the session:
    - How to build a memorable off boarding process
    - Ways to communicate with your team in case of a bad off boarding process

  • Give Me a Reason to Stay: How to Use Strengths to Keep Top Talent Recorded: Nov 5 2020 49 mins
    Adriane Massey, GALLUP-Certified Strengths Facilitator & Coach, Strengths Zone
    What could we have done to keep you? This is a typical question posed to top talent as they’re leaving your organization. But it doesn’t always have to be that way. In other words, you probably have a lot more control over retention than you think.

    Gallup data shows that 51% of U.S. employees are actively looking for a new job or are open to one. The odds are relatively good that you probably have one or a few on your team who are looking to leave your company right now, even amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

    On the positive side, slightly more than half, 52%, of voluntarily exiting employees say that their manager or organization could have done something to prevent them from leaving their job.

    This session, led by Adriane Massey, a GALLUP-certified Strengths Coach, explores how to use Strengths now to prevent unwanted employee exits later.

She leads virtual workshops nationwide and coaches people through career and personal hurdles, using their natural talents.

    Today employees are looking for supervisors who can lead, manage, coach, and mentor. What they are not looking for is a typical "boss" to command and micromanage them.

We all want to be heard, but in this increasingly distracted time, we don’t always feel heard. By employing coaching techniques to better connect with your employees, you’ll build stronger—and more successful—relationships. In this session we will explore how to retain top talent by becoming a leader from the side to your top employees—and empower them through coaching.

    - Learn the difference between listening and active listening
    - Understand what it means to lead from the side
    - Learn the difference between a good coaching question and a great coaching question
