Outside the Box HR

What if HR thought outside the box in more areas? Could we change how or who we hire? Could we hire amazing people, open ourselves up for more talent, and broaden our scope? Or what about how we motivate our staff? Could we tap into a whole new level of employee engagement? Let’s talk about these concepts and ideas and how we can begin to think differently. Your ideas will be important as we talk about these items:

  • Should we not hire someone with an unrelated job felony? Or someone covered in tattoos?
  • Should we hire based on experience not based on a college degree?
  • What if we hired people without experience and trained them?
  • What if we allowed remote work? Imagine who we could hire.
  • What if we had an onsite coach to help employees get motivated? To improve performance? To provide feedback from an outsider?

Our HR world is continually changing and evolving because people are continually changing and evolving, and we have to be ready and willing to acknowledge the change and find new ways to do our HR jobs successfully. Come and join us virtually and discuss how we can look ‘outside our boxes’ and be open to ideas that will allow us to achieve different results and success – for us, the company and the employee.

OUR TOPIC

“Do it!” — The Magic of Motivating Yourself and Others

It’s really not magic but when it all comes together it can feel magical. Finding, understanding, and accessing human motivation is key to being (and feeling) productive, so this workshop will focus on the secrets in plain sight about motivating yourself and others and ways to prevent demotivation from impacting your plans and goals.

Participants can expect an interactive learning workshop filled with research and theory, real-life examples, and practical strategies to implement the learning right away. Outcomes for this workshop include positive emotional experiences, multi-sensory stimulation and novelty, participation and collaboration, and a caring and supportive learning environment.

After this workshop participants will think more deeply about human motivation, apply motivation strategies more effectively with themselves and with others, and be ready to prevent and combat the negative effects of de-motivation on theirs and others personal and professional lives.

Prior to the workshop please watch the YouTube video: “A Mile an Hour: Running a different kind of marathon” found at this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EvT5XS7j-Dc

OUR TOPIC:

Compensation Trends & Troubles – New (and Old) Challenges Facing Employers in 2021 and Beyond

As we enter our post pandemic recovery the ability to compensate talent faces some new and not so new challenges. The ability to identify and manage compensation issues associated with labor shortages, state labor laws, and the socio-dynamics impact of the pandemic have become more complex than ever.

In this 60 minute session we will discuss several new (and not so new trends) affecting total compensation and strategies for employers to compete in an ever changing work climate.

Learning Objectives

    • Review the basics of Compensation (Base Pay, Short & Long Term Incentives) and their use in business.
    • Identify trends affecting compensation such as:
        • California Mandated Minimum Wage Increases
        • Business Profitability and Merit Budgets
        • Post Pandemic Labor Scarcity
        • Remote Work
        • Wage Compression
    • Understand where to obtain good pay data (to make good pay decisions!)
    • Discuss practical solutions and strategies of how to combat these issues to attract and retain employees using financial and non-financial incentives
