Virtual Workshop 3 - Making Remote Work Successful: Evidence-Based Recommendations for Engagement and Well-being *FULL*

This event has reached capacity and will no longer be accepting additional registrants.

 

Delivery Method:  Virtual

Date/Time:  Wednesday, April 13, from 7:00am - 11:00am PDT

CE: TBD

Presenters: Tammy D. Allen, University of South Florida, Stacey Levine, LinkedIn, Kristen M. Shockley, University of Georgia

Coordinator: Jan L. Harbaugh, SHL

 

Intended Audience: 

Intermediate: a general audience at the post-graduate level. The workshop is intended for I-O professionals and HR practitioners who have some familiarity with remote work and who are interested in understanding the latest remote work research and practice.
 

Abstract:

Remote work is here to stay. A new normal is taking shape as an increasing number of employers intend to make full or part-time (hybrid) remote work permanent. Given the current environment, what do we know? How can we cultivate employee wellbeing and work-nonwork balance, performance, engagement, and collaboration?
 

Detailed Description:

A recent Gallup poll found many full-time workers continue to work remotely and expect to do so for the rest of 2022 and longer. Moreover, the majority of remote workers want to continue to work remotely for some portion of the workweek and would look for employment with another organization if the option was lost. Remote work offers both opportunities and challenges. This workshop will focus on sharing research and evidence-based best practices, opportunities, and potential pitfalls associated with 1) managing employee wellbeing and work-nonwork balance when the boundary between work and nonwork disappears, 2) facilitating employee performance and establishing effective communication processes, 3) developing a remote work culture that facilitates collaboration and engagement, 4) special considerations for fully remote versus hybrid arrangements.
 

Learning Objectives:

This workshop is designed to help participants:

  • Understand three or more benefits and three or more challenges associated with remote work.
  • Develop awareness of the connection between remote work and employee wellbeing.
  • Identify three or more best practices for enhancing the wellbeing and performance of remote workers.
  • Consider three or more new ways of organizing work to facilitate collaboration, wellbeing, and performance within remote and hybrid environments.

In-Person Workshop 2 - Bringing Artificial Intelligence into Your Organization: Practical Steps

Delivery Method:  In-Person

CE: TBD

Date/Time:  To be held April 27th, 2022 at the Washington State Convention Center; 8:00am-12:00pm OR 1:00pm-5:00pm PDT

Presenters:        Michael A. Campion, Purdue University

                                Emily D. Campion, Old Dominion University

                                Robert Gibby, Facebook

Coordinator:      Matthew Fleisher, FTI Consulting

 

Intended Audience: Introductory and Intermediate. The workshop is intended for I/O professionals and HR practitioners who are interested in understanding AI solutions and developing a plan on how to bring AI into their organization.

 

Abstract:

This workshop focuses on artificial intelligence (AI) and its uses in personnel selection and staffing, performance, training, and other traditional I/O areas. Participants will learn what AI can, cannot, and likely should not do, and they will develop a plan to leverage AI to solve problems in their own organizations.

 

Detailed Description:

Artificial intelligence techniques – including machine learning – are likely to impact I/O greater than any other innovation in our lifetime, fundamentally changing practice and research. These can be powerful tools to improve traditional I/O areas such as selection, appraisal, training, engagement, turnover, and others. This workshop is intended to help I/O practitioners with traditional statistical skills get started using AI.  We will provide practical advice as we work through potential AI applications, accessible tools, and steps to follow. The goal is for participants to walk away with a concrete plan for implementing AI in their organizations to solve a problem.

 

Learning Objectives:

This workshop is designed to help participants:

  • Explain the ways in which AI can improve traditional I-O areas such as selection, development, engagement, appraisal, turnover, planning, etc., drawing from both current innovations in practice and leading-edge research. For example, this can occur through automation to reduce costs and enable people to focus on higher-value work, providing decision support at key moments across the career lifecycle to enable employees and managers, predict turnover and improve retention.
  • Describe the applicable tools, the information needed, resources available, skills necessary to develop, and practical steps necessary for I-Os with typical statistical training to develop AI solutions in their organization. For example, this includes a review of user-friendly software (e.g., SPSS Modeler, SAS Miner, Amazon SageMaker Canvas), as well as programming languages already used in organizations (e.g., Python).
  • Design a plan to develop an AI solution to an I-O problem in their organization.

In-Person Workshop 3 - Reimagining Performance Management for Maximum Impact: From Performance Management to Performance Enablement

Delivery Method:  In-Person

CE: TBD

Date/Time:  To be held April 27th, 2022 at the Washington State Convention Center; 8:00am-12:00pm OR 1:00pm-5:00pm PDT

Presenters:        Alan Colquitt, John Deere

                                Edie Goldberg, E. L. Goldberg & Associates

Coordinator:      Anne Hansen, Amazon

 

Intended Audience:

The intended audience is Intermediate to Advanced practitioners who consult or work in organizations focused on talent management, performance management, rewards and recognition, and/or compensation/benefits. Foundational knowledge of existing applications of performance management in organizations is required to get the most from this content.

 

Abstract:

Imagine a world where employees are energized by performance conversations not depleted by them.  In this workshop we will discuss where PM took a wrong turn and why it is time to fundamentally flip the script on performance management, focusing it on enabling and supporting performance instead of managing it.

 

Detailed Description:

Over the past decade countless solutions have been proposed to improve performance management (PM) and most have failed because they haven’t addressed the real problems:  The core purpose (reward distribution and pay for performance), and the flawed principles underlying PM practices (classical economics and stimulus response-psychology).  PM is also failing because it has not kept pace with the changing nature of work and organizations. 

 

Fixing PM will require a fundamental re-thinking, positioning it as a key part of the organization’s management process, providing direction and alignment, and ensuring progress toward organizational goals instead of as part of a rewards-distribution process.  Fixing PM will also require that we adopt new practices based on more contemporary thinking and models of how to motivate employee behavior and performance. 

 

Learning Objectives:

This workshop is designed to help participants:

  •  Understand where PM has failed organizations and why
  •  Understand the changing nature of work and the implications for PM design
  •  Rethink how performance management adds value to an organization
  •  Understand and define new principles and models that should guide PM design in the future
  • Design new PM practices that enable employees and organizations to achieve high performance

Date/Time:  To be held April 27th, 2022 at the Washington State Convention Center; 8:00am-12:00pm OR 1:00pm-5:00pm PDT

Presenters:        Lisa Harpe, DCI Consulting Group

Jone Papinchock, DCI Consulting Group

Mark Girouard, Nilan Johnson Lewis

Coordinator:      Kevin Reindl, San Diego Gas & Electric

 

Intended Audience:  Intermediate. Participants should have a working knowledge of personnel selection practices, EEO concepts and laws related to workplace discrimination, but participants do not need to be experts in the subject matter.

 

Abstract:

In this workshop, the I-O and attorney presenters will address regulatory changes, significant case law developments, and a range of EEO issues related to talent selection and management (e.g., pay equity, the use of artificial intelligence, the impact of COVID and Black Lives Matter, and the ADA and personality testing) and implications for I-O and HR professionals.

 

Detailed Description:

Equal employment opportunity (EEO) and related laws continue to be critical areas for I-O psychologists and HR professionals involved in workplace research and practice. Every year, there are significant court rulings and regulatory updates from federal agencies like the EEOC, DOJ and OFCCP. In addition, whether in response to activist shareholders, employee or societal demands, companies are increasingly evaluating the fairness of their practices in ways that can both lower and raise legal risk. Following the employment lifecycle from recruiting to assessment to onboarding and talent management, the presenters will discuss new court cases, regulations, agency guidance, the impact of recent societal changes, and the evolving role of I-O and HR professionals in identifying and mitigating areas of legal risk in this fast-changing landscape.

 

Learning Objectives:

This workshop is designed to help participants:

  • Gain familiarity with the legal risks at each stage of the employee lifecycle.
  • Understand recent court rulings, regulations, and federal agency guidance related to HR practices.
  • Discover how internal audits in response to internal and external demands can raise or lower legal risk.
  • Determine potential EEO risks in terms of likelihood of challenge and of successfully responding to a challenge.
  • Identify 3-5 strategies for defending personnel systems throughout the employee lifecycle.

In-Person Workshop 5 - Integrating Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) Science and Practice

Delivery Method:  In-Person

CE: TBD

Date/Time:  To be held April 27th, 2022 at the Washington State Convention Center; 8:00am-12:00pm OR 1:00pm-5:00pm PDT

Presenters:        Victoria Mattingly, Mattingly Solutions

                                Sertrice Grice, Mattingly Solutions

                                Bernardo Ferdman, Ferdman Consulting

Coordinator:      Kelsey Klausing, Hogan Assessments

 

Intended Audience: 

Intermediate. The workshop is intended for I-O professionals and HR practitioners who are interested in best practices, new strategies, and methods that integrate a scientific approach to implementing DEI in the workplace. General audience at the postgraduate level. No previous experience or knowledge is required; however, attendees should have a role that requires or would benefit from incorporating scientifically grounded DEI principles and practices.

 

Abstract: 

Both science and practice are critical to DEI initiatives, yet they are often disconnected. Our goal is to facilitate the integration of DEI science and practice by reviewing relevant scholarship, key topics, and concepts; exploring DEI measurement; and challenging participants to consider how organizations can close the DEI science-practice gap.

 

Detailed Description: 

While the events of the past year have spurred organizations to invest in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) more than ever, many DEI initiatives do not take full advantage of relevant scholarship and research or of scientific methods. I-O psychologists are uniquely positioned to help organizations take a scientific approach to building more diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplaces. Presenters will provide an overview of key scholarship and research on DEI and will address the importance of interdisciplinary communication and collaboration and of integrating science and practice for the most effective DEI work in organizations. They will discuss key topics and concepts, as well as approaches for DEI measurement, and will challenge participants to consider ways to better integrate DEI science and practice in their own organizations. Participants will also consider strategic rationales for DEI and will engage in a think tank activity to map out their own consultative approach to defining, measuring, and influencing DEI initiatives.

 

Learning Objectives:

After attending this workshop, participants will:

●     Understand how to define and quantify the four major constructs of DEI (diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging) from the perspective of both science and practice

●     Gain insights from key scholarship and research on DEI and understand how these can impact communication and collaboration specific to DEI

●     Integrate and translate science-based insights and approaches into practical DEI solutions

●     Produce a high-level measurement strategy plan to use in their ongoing DEI work
