Taking Your Diversity and Inclusion Strategy to the Next Level Through Benchmarks, Measurement and Analytics


Date: July 30, 2015

Time: 2:30 p.m. ET


Most organizations understand the value and business necessity of building a diverse workforce-one that's able to achieve the results needed to win in today's highly diverse global marketplace. Yet despite this realization, many employers continue to fall short when it comes to making it a reality. 

The fact is, diversity is more than just "the right thing to do"-it's a business imperative! If companies are ultimately going to successfully grow their businesses and improve their bottom lines, they're not only going to need to make diversity a part of their organizational DNA, but will also need to more effectively measure the impact of their initiatives and provide meaningful, actionable data to their organization's leadership. 

In this webinar, David Tulin and Dr. Ed Hubbard, two of the foremost experts in diversity best practices and analytics, will share a blueprint for building a world-class diversity strategy-and the part measurement and analytics can play in achieving a business ROI. Among other things, participants will learn best practices for crafting effective programs and policies, the metrics leaders care most about and effective ways to report relevant data to them. 

Following the event, attendees will also receive two takeaways: a copy of the soon-to-be released Global Diversity & Inclusion Benchmarks ® publication and Dr. Hubbard's Diversity ROI (DROI ®) Take-Away Measurement Tools.

Controlling Healthcare Costs: How the Best Performing Employers Succeed in Improving Engagement to Impact Outcomes

Date: June 24, 2015

Time: 2:30 p.m. ET


Healthcare trends that escalate year over year make it essential that you get the most value from your employee healthcare program. During 2015, employers will continue to work to manage costs, respond to the Affordable Care Act, improve healthcare quality, and increase employee engagement in their own personal health. 

However, those companies that are most successful at controlling healthcare costs take a more holistic and assertive stance in using emerging innovations to improve results than others. These "best performers" are focusing on benefit design, population health and helping employees become better healthcare consumers, all while moving away from paying fee-for-service in order to hold providers accountable. 

A key goal is met when the right person gets the right care at the right place at the right time. In this webinar, Shari Davidson, vice president of health care cost and delivery at the National Business Group on Health ®, who has more than 25 years of experience in large employer healthcare management, will share successful strategies for engaging employees to impact quality and cost. 

You will hear about best practice tactics for: 

• Employee cost-sharing designs and consumer-directed health plans (CDHPs); 

• Implementing resources such as second opinion programs, navigators/advocates, transparency tools and telemedicine; 

• Network optimization and value-based contracting; 

• Chronic condition management, risk factor reduction and care-gap improvement; and 

•Specialty pharmacy cost management and more.

Crisis Communications: Crafting an Effective Strategy for Turbulent Times

Date: June 9, 2015

Time: 2:30 p.m. ET


It's hard to predict when a crisis is going to hit your organization, but you can be pretty certain that day is going to come. And when it does, will you and your team be prepared?

As some companies have learned the hard way, crises can take a costly toll on the workforce and employee-engagement levels. In the most extreme cases, the impact could take years to recover from.

In this webinar, the presenters-a leading communication counselor and a senior HR executive with years of experience addressing organizational crises-will share their communication strategies for successfully navigating crises when they eventually do arise.

Merrie Spaeth, founder and president of Spaeth Communications, will cover why an enterprise-wide model and philosophy of communication can help HR leaders manage both the internal and external challenges associated with any crisis or reputation-threatening event.

Ivan Thompson, senior vice president of HR at Just Energy (the nation's second largest retail energy seller) and a former senior HR executive for Dr Pepper Snapple Group and other large enterprises, will share the lessons he's learned as he's addressed a broad range of crises and challenging situations, ranging from labor disputes, major staffing reductions and workplace accidents to executive turmoil and serious allegations from key regulators, just to name a few. He will also outline what to do (and not do!) from the perspective of internal HR/communication.

Health Improvement and Beyond: Taking Workplace Wellness to the Next Level

Date: April 22, 2015

Time: 2:30 p.m. ET


As companies compete in a hyper-competitive world, the challenge of sustaining employee engagement and improving the holistic well-being of employees can be seen as two sides of the same coin. Leading companies know that the employee's pursuit of happiness and the organization's pursuit of profitability are not mutually exclusive but rather reinforce each other! In this webinar, Michael Thompson of PwC Human Resource Services will discuss how the talent agenda is being enhanced with a holistic well-being focus. 

Some of the key areas he will discuss include: 

• What is wrong with most wellness programs today and how can they be rebooted to encompass well-being? 

• How do we shift the focus from managing healthcare costs to improving engagement, enthusiasm and energy? 

• How can other elements of well-being (financial, emotional, purpose/spirit, community) be integrated into the approach? • How can technology be leveraged to activate the five pillars of change? 

• How can the power of "and" provide an multiplicative effect in change efforts? 

• What is the interplay between mind, body and performance? 

• Why do mental health and well-being deserve a special focus, and what is the pay off? 

• How does this approach better meet the expectations of a new generation of employees? 

After an initial presentation, Mike will address questions from webinar attendees in hopes of giving them further insight on how they can apply these concepts to their own organizations.
