A Conversation with David Le Mentec

1:15 to 2:15 p.m. ET Thursday, Oct. 26

David Le Mentec headshotJoin us for the next Conversation Series event of 2023, featuring David Le Mentec, who will talk about the science behind navigating today’s uncertain workplace.

In the ever-evolving world of work, it's crucial to keep up with the latest trends. Trend #7 of the 2023 SIOP Top 10 Work Trends is all about reevaluating people strategies during times of economic uncertainty. We've all witnessed the challenges that workers have been grappling with in recent years, from economic instability to inflation, unexpected layoffs, and the looming fear of a recession. So, how can organizations step up and provide the best support to their employees in these trying times? In a world where turbulence seems to be the new norm, we need to empower our workforce to better handle uncertainty. It's time to move away from the traditional response of simply cutting costs and instead shift the focus to making people the most valuable asset within an organization. This is where I-O psychologists and HR professionals can make a significant impact by reshaping outdated organizational strategies and driving us toward an economy where people come first.

David Le Mentec, an L&D Architect with more than 23 years of experience in top-level organizational development for multinational corporations, will offer fresh insights into the behaviors essential for this moment in history. He'll be honing in on the crucial changes happening within organizational leadership.
