    Helping people achieve personal and work-related goals supports attraction and retention as well as improves productivity. A personalized approach to work supports key HR and people priorities including: enabling performance; embracing diversity and inclusion; lifting engagement; boosting wellbeing and nurturing agility and creativity. Personalization is especially effective at driving repeat engagement and loyalty over time. Researchers have found that when employees feel their work aligns with their self-image and improves their sense of belonging they feel more comfortable, more collaborative with others, and more enthusiastic about their work. Employees today want to be themselves at work and want their managers to recognize them as a whole person with unique needs. They want their employers to understand, respect and accommodate that. This means really listening to them and then designing the work and the culture in a way that allows for individualization and personalization.

    • Why: Why is Personalization of Work key in attracting and retaining talent, creating a productive workplace and enabling future success for both individuals and the organization

    • Bay Area (TBD)

    On January 1 this year, a new law went into effect in California that requires companies with more than 15 employees to post salary ranges for open positions. This change to the legal and transparency landscape has far-reaching implications not only for how companies approach their hiring but also how they manage internal salary expectations and deal with the issues of pay equity and compensation compression challenges.

    In this critical and timely session, we will explore:

    How are HR leaders leading efforts to adapt to this new salary transparency landscape? What are they doing proactively to talk about pay? How are they dealing with confusion that arises between posted job ranges and actual pay?

    • How are they preparing managers? How are they addressing management resistance?
    • What are the unexpected positive consequences of compensation transparency?
    • What are unexpected negative consequences and how are they being addressed?
    • What has been the employee response?
    • How are organizations addressing pay inequities that come to light?
    • What are the cultural implications of pay transparency?

    Join us as we talk with practitioners and compensation specialists as they manage through the turbulence of pay transparency.
