Conference Attendance 301

China Gorman

In 2010 I wrote Conference Attendance 101 , a post on my blog, Data Point Tuesday. It has been one of the most shared, re-posted, and quoted blog posts I’ve ever written. Attending HR conferences successfully – getting the most out of the experience – really has taken careful planning and tons of time management. I’ve been affiliated with Globoforce ’s WorkHuman conference since its inception in 2015.

Conference Attendance 101

You took advice from my last blog post and decided which conference to attend. But now you want to be sure that you leverage your investment by making the most of your attendance. The speakers are typically big names in the industry who speak on universal topics relevant to the conference theme or they are big celebrity names meant to draw your attendance to the conference. Each time slot will hold multiple options for your consideration.

HR Bartender

I was excited to see that flow is one of the topics being covered at this year’s WorkHuman conference powered by Globoforce. Catherine] Flow is a mental state of being so fully engaged in a task that you lose track of time and place. It’s described as peak experience and peak performance — highly productivity and innately worthwhile. Cultivating flow requires those common conditions and attending to those individualized factors as well.

I’m really looking forward to attending this year’s WorkHuman Conference because one of the speakers, Pandit Dasa, a mindfulness expert and former monk, is speaking on mindful leadership. Regular readers of this blog know I’ve become fascinated with mindfulness and have written a few pieces about the practice. Pandit was generous to share his time with me and provide a sneak peek into mindful leadership. Make time for this daily. The time will fly by.

On Appreciation, Recognition & WorkHuman: Q&A with Tim Sackett

WorkHuman

Take a look at his blog and the webinar he co-hosted last year. We asked Tim for his take on Employee Appreciation Day, recognition, and why he’s attending WorkHuman in May. There is a direct positive impact to productivity and engagement, so every dollar spent on this by organizations is coming back to them, plus more. I’m a Social Republican who needs to find ways for my organization to be more effective, and I think you do that by having happy, productive employees.

The New York Time s quoted professor Jarrod Haar of Auckland University of Technology, one of the researchers analyzing the results of the experiment, as noting, “ Supervisors said staff were more creative, their attendance was better, they were on time, and they didn't leave early or take long breaks. Rather, focusing on employee strengths and encouraging more emphasis and productivity in line with those goals delivers more impact in the short and long-term.

Eight Upcoming Talks You’d Be Crazy to Miss. Seriously.

WorkHuman

We all have limited time. And there are a LOT of things out there to read and see and attend. But how can we know which sessions and talks are worth our time and will get our minds and hearts racing—and which talks are going to be a snoozefest that leave us wanting our wasted time back? For the first time in history, four distinct generations are sharing the workplace, and sometimes it feels as if they’re living in four different worlds.

Cafe Classic: Unions, Recognition and Employee Engagement

Regardless of your position on unions, the bottom line in private-sector companies is that leadership would not have to be concerned about unionization in their workforce if they create a work environment in which employees do not see a need unionize, in which employees feel their interests are attended to, they have a safe and fair work environment, they are not just allowed but encouraged to work and achieve to their full potential.

A Different Kind of Diversity #WorkHuman

Women of HR

I classify myself as an “extroverted introvert” – I do enjoy being around people, but I appreciate my alone time just as much. I work in a pretty “chatty” environment that makes it hard to concentrate at times, and the walls certainly help. And if we make assumptions that everyone thrives in the same type of environment, we may be missing the mark and sacrificing productivity and achievement. That could be a whole other blog post. Diversity in the workplace.
