Organizations today face many challenges and threats on the horizon and need to ready their people and organizations to be prepared for an array of these disruptions – digital and other. For many of us this means preparing our entire culture and requires deep changes to the “fabric of who we are”. In this opening session, we will tap into what we, as senior HR leaders, see as our top two challenges and/or opportunities for our own organizations during these roundtable self-introductions. This will be an extraordinary opportunity for participants to act as a touchpoint as the discussions continue throughout the Forum, with the goal of finding a path to solutions through shared experiences. Lorne will be opening the session at 8:30 am with a discussion on “Disruptions or Opportunities”.

An engaged workforce is a competitive advantage, and according to Gallop, companies with top quartile engagement rates average 22 per cent higher profitability!

While mobility can accelerate engagement, it is often difficult to sustain high levels of engagement among transferees, given the unique stressors and changes they experience. In this case study I will break down the award winning people culture at ATB Financial and investigate how mobility is used to stimulate employee engagement. I will be presenting with Ellie Sullivan, Senior VP Advisory Services at Weichert Mobility Workforce on September 12, 10:45 am – 12:00 pm.
