Master Class

11:00 am - 11:45 am The Data-Driven CHRO: Improving the Effectiveness of Talent Analytics
HR Analytics has come a long way. From a boring cumbersome process to a highly anticipated business necessity that is vital to running a high performing company. Employers getting it right are focusing on measuring diversity, gender pay, skills gaps, labor utilization, retention rates, and even organizational network analysis. In this session, attendees will learn how to:
·         Highlight the most effective type, nature, and level of data to analyze
·         Review the different methods for capturing data  
·         Learn how to set up and sustain an effective talent analytics as a business disciple
·         Maximize ROI from your analytics investment 


11:00 am - 11:45 am Managing Ethical Practices in the Digital Age
Now, more than ever, ethics is “the price of admission in high-performing organizations.” A culture where misconduct is tolerated could result in huge turnover, loss of productivity and cascading effects on recruitment and overall competitive edge. Ensuring business -wide ethical practices have grown more difficult in the digital age. This Master Class will discuss how HR Leaders must expand their ethical charges, including the ethical use of data, the role of technology and the risk factors at play.  
•Define an ethical culture 
•Highlight the role of the managers’ influence in driving ethical behaviour and enforcement 
•Review the components of a successful ethics and compliance program 
•Learn about the effects of technology on ethics in the workplace 

11:50 am - 12:05 pm Mindful Leadership: A Full Contact Sport

Anyone that says that being a mindful leader is easy is lying! It’s hard work, but completely worth it. Mindful leaders know very little, but we know it, and have no fear. Unlearning what we think we know, and coming out from under the weight of our own certainties and narratives is the first step. Let’s take it together.
