Please join us for our April All Area Luncheon to hear Lisa Horn, SHRM’s primary spokesperson on workplace flexibility share her keen insights on the benefits of Workplace Flexibility and learn about HR Public Policy Initiatives under the current administration.
WORKPLACE FLEXIBILITY: THE NEXT IMPERATIVE FOR BUSINESS SUCCESS AND HR LEADERSHIP
Workplace flexibility has become a key business strategy to leverage the talents and skills of today’s increasingly diverse, aging, and multi-generational workforce. In this session, you will learn how flexible work arrangements such as job sharing, flexible scheduling, phased retirement, and telecommuting can drive employee engagement, productivity, retention, and benefit your organization’s bottom line. You will also examine key HR strategies for implementing flexibility as well as legal issues to consider. And you will hear about new resources and opportunities as a result of SHRM’s partnership with the Families and Work Institute, including the “When Work Works” initiative.
HR PUBLIC POLICY OUTLOOK IN THE 112TH CONGRESS AND OBAMA ADMINISTRATION
With Republicans in control of the House of Representatives and Democrats holding a slim majority in the Senate, the 112th Congress has been mired in steep partisanship. However, the Obama Administration has been busy announcing a series of regulatory rulemaking activities to advance its HR agenda, which some claim is an effort to short-circuit the Congress. Learn about these and other public policy initiatives that have important consequences for HR professionals, as well as how you can influence the debate in Washington over these issues.
Lisa Horn serves as the Co-Leader for SHRM’s Workplace Flexibility Initiative and partnership with the Families and Work Institute (FWI). She is responsible for the overall direction and execution of the Society’s partnership with FWI, including outreach efforts to SHRM affiliates, development of products and services for the membership, and coordination with SHRM’s public relations campaign, We Know Next.
