The Hidden Brain: The Power of Unconscious Bias in the WorkplaceContains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 10/29/2019
Returning Favorite! We all know that the unconscious mind is a powerful and intrinsic force in helping to shape our overall behavior in our everyday lives. Similarly, organizations and thought leaders are beginning to appreciate and harness this deeper understanding of how our cultures help shape the automatic decisions that we make every moment of our lives and the profound impact that this phenomenon has on our personal and professional lives. Every human being gets triggered, either positively or negatively, when we are exposed to different kinds of people. The concept of “unconscious bias” impacts individuals and organizations at virtually every level of organizational life including hiring, performance management, succession planning, and strategic decisions in organizations. Cutting-edge recent studies and research within the cognitive sciences point us to the conclusion that most of these decisions are not made by bad people with bad attitudes,but rather by well-intended people who have no idea about the internal unconscious processes that may be affecting their decision-making every day. In this session we will a focus on the concept of us vs.them and realize it’s really more about us and inclusion of others. Learning Objectives: Understand the neurocognitive science behind bias; Interpret your own patterns of beliefs and perceptions so you are better able to support inclusion for others at your organization; Learn the ways bias can impact critical business decisions and results, and ways to mitigate that impact.
Compliance Considerations for Tomorrow's BenefitsContains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 10/29/2019
While HR professionals may have enjoyed the recent slowdown in regulatory action under the Affordable Care Act, plenty of compliance considerations remain for those that work with cafeteria plans and group health plans. We’ll look at the latest-and-greatest as it pertains to topics such as association health plans, wellness regulations, the contraceptive mandate, and general agency enforcement to ensure HR professionals are ready to become a trusted advisor to employees through the next phase of employee benefits. Learning Objectives: Understand key regulatory and legislative actions from the past year that affect compliance for cafeteria plans and group health plans; Recognize inherent risks of noncompliance for employee benefit programs based on agency enforcement activities from the past year; Serve as a trusted advisor to the company in the event an IRS penalty is proposed for alleged noncompliance with the employer mandate provisions applicable to large employers.
How Tests and Other Employment Practices can be IllegalContains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 10/29/2019
Understanding the legal implications of tests and other employment practices is critical for HR professionals. An employer can’t intentionally discriminate, but, in the vast majority of claims brought under the 1991 Civil Rights Act’s Title VII or Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures (41 CRF 60-3) – the only way to challenge a practice is to claim it’s discriminatory – intentional discrimination is not alleged. Most claims are triggered statistically by adverse impact – that it caused a protected group to be under-selected – despite employer commitment to EEO. This sessionwill demonstrate the two ways a practice can be discriminatory within how anti-discrimination law evolved into Title VII and the Uniform Guidelines, with many firsthand case examples; differences between the two legal standards; and basic exam legal defensibility, while humorously debunking legal defensibility myths. Learning Objectives: Understand basic legal defensibility at the lay level to be proactive to mitigate potential employment practice liability; Debunk EEO compliance myths through examination of case examples and learn what not to do to mitigate liability; Become aware that the federal government doesn't always know what they're supposed to be enforcing.
From 8 Track to Emoji: Engaging the Millennial CultureContains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 10/29/2019
Returning Favorite! Millennials are now the largest represented population in the workforce. The discussion is no longer focused on how leaders can co-exist with a millennial workforce; the conversation today has moved to outline best practices for integrating millennial ideas and values into company culture to leverage the best of both worlds. During this session, participants will learn key national trends of this generation and cover practical strategies to leverage research to create an environment in which millennials thrive. With a presenter that is definitively Millennial in age but straddles the generational gap in thought, this session includes first hand lessons learned from building a firm that has successfully leveraged the best of both worlds to grow in size between 80 to 100 percent each year since its founding over eight years ago. Learning Objectives: Understand five best practices in bridging generational gaps; Name three questions every organization should be asking; Identify key cultural competencies integral for success with the millennial generation.
