2:50 – 3:10 pm: Compensation Trends and Outlook.
With unemployment rates continuing to drop how should you prepare for the inevitable shift back to material compensation increases? Did projections about salary increases, guaranteed cash and other employee reward elements come to fruition last year, or did shifting regional economies and markets create unexpected scenarios? What's the compensation outlook for later this year? This session will cover the latest trends in core salaries, benefits, bonuses, Pay for Performance, Long-Term Incentives (LTIs), and how to best prepare for next year.

3:10 – 3:30 pm: Strengths and Weaknesses of key HRMS and HRIS Systems.
Most of the top human resource management systems offer very similar core features. However, they do differ significantly when it comes to key strengths, weaknesses, and advanced features such as analytics, security, workflow and talent management.

3:30 – 4:00 pm: Improving Results with Data Driven HR Decisions.
It’s not news that the rise of big data is a leading focus in HR and the push for HR departments to embrace data driven decision making strategies is a major focus across the industry. Much has been said about the importance of HR Analytics and the early results suggest that organizations who are adopting data analytics to support HR decisions are reaping the benefits. Introducing analytics to the Human Resources Line of Business (HRLOB) requires new skills. This session will cover what is needed and what is working.

4:00 – 4:20 pm: Real Time HR Performance Management.
There’s a need for a fundamental shift in how organizations look at and use performance management. Today’s organizations move more quickly than ever and often require collaboration to get things done. They can no longer afford to wait 12 months to get feedback on employees’ progress toward goals. As the workplace evolves, we need to find new processes that support contemporary business challenges. Come learn about the latest trends such as Social Performance Management (SPM) in turbocharging your internal processes.
