HRPBC September Dinner Event and Pre-Meeting Workshop

Event Title: It Is Another Great Day… An Inspiring Roadmap to Effective Leadership

Presented by: Dr. Alvin B. Jackson Jr.

Program Description:

There are many strategies and traits that respected leaders possess. Many leadership skills can be taught and learned. However, passion and inspiration—the most essential elements—must come from within. Dr. Alvin Jackson Jr. will provide an inspirational “feel good” perspective on leadership theory with “real life” experiences and applications. Learn how to prepare for and recognize leadership opportunities to advance your careers by using a road map to success. He will share with you how to use personal experience and opportunities to shape your leadership lens.  He will blend theory with application to help you to:

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Apply full passion for effective leadership and goal attainment!
  • Discover that leadership is who you are, not your job title!
  • Develop leadership skills that are deliberate, individually and strategic organizationally!
  • Build an effective leadership culture that is evident in the attitude and actions of the staff (how the business of the organization is conducted)!

This program has been submitted for HRCI recertification credits through HRCI. 

Pre-Meeting Workshop

Event Title: One Size Does Not Fit All: Trends in Compensation Strategies

Presented by: Dr. Linsey Willis

Program description:

Engaging, motivating, retaining and gaining the commitment of employees are worldwide challenges and dilemmas for HR professionals and the companies they serve. Compensation strategies vary worldwide and one size certainly does not fit all. 

The major learning objectives for the attendees include: 
  • How important the job tasks, job enrichment, job design, employee drive, and employee commitment are based on survey research and a literature review. 
  • What the trends are regarding employee incentives, intrinsic motivation, employee commitment, managing employee benefits and the importance of investing in your employees is. Research findings that reinforce the latter will be summarized.
  • The differences between compensation systems in multinational corporations and domestic companies, and how entrepreneurial companies compensate their employees.
