July Dinner Meeting

Speaker: Jim Gallo, MS, SPHR, SHRM-CSP
Title: Performance Management? Time to get off the Hamster Wheel

Employees can be a major source of competitive advantage and organizations understand that performance feedback is important for human capital development.  Yet supervisors often put minimal effort into performance assessments, and subsequently employees receive the same minimal benefit.  Effective on-going feedback is key to the success of any performance management program. The lack of a performance feedback dialoged within organizations can be a silent killer. We believe the practice of revamp, revise and incorporate new performance management systems are often misguided strategies and of little value to organizations without understanding the individual complexities of feedback and the context in which they exist.

It is time to change the performance management paradigm and jump off the never ending Hamster Wheel! 

This session will explore the science of why performance management systems (PMS) continue to be the Achilles heel in performance improvement and will provide practical solutions on changing the paradigm.

1. Better understanding of what is plaguing our performance management systems
2. Understand the complexities of giving and receiving performance feedback within the workplace 
3. Gain practical solutions for increasing the effectiveness of performance management systems

This program has been submitted for both SHRM and HRCI Recertification credits.

Speakers: Lara Donlon and Jonathan O’Connell
Title: Preparing and Planning for Your Defense With Recent Legal-Related Human Resources Updates 

In the unfortunate event a current or former employee asserts a claim against his or her employer, human resources professionals are likely to play an important role.  This presentation will discuss issues relating to planning and preparing for various legal claims that may arise from a human resources perspective.  Types of claims that will be discussed include discrimination claims asserted under local, state, and federal equal opportunity statutes and ordinances, wage and hour claims asserted under the Fair Labor Standards Act, and claims involving non-compete and confidentiality agreements. With this information, participants will be in a better position to assist their employers in preventing, responding to, helping to address, and resolving legal claims that may arise in the workplace. 

This session will also provide an update regarding recent legal human resources-related developments under state and federal law, including any proposed revised Fair Labor Standards Act regulations that are likely to be issued in the next several months by the U.S. Department of Labor.  With this data, participants will be better able to provide focused training and compliance efforts within their organizations. 

This program has been submitted for both SHRM and HRCI Recertification credits.
