This timely livestream session will clarify key terms related to sexual harassment and gender discrimination, using real examples to show what does NOT fall under these categories.


Key Takeaways: 

  • Very few interpersonal conflicts at work qualify as discrimination
  • Very few negative interactions are retaliation
  • Simply reciting legal definitions is not enough — live training is a must to truly clarify what IS discrimination


Learn how behavioral power skills can enhance employees’ real potential at work and set them apart from others, especially when it comes to being identified as the future talent senior management is searching for internally.


Key Takeaways: 

  • Behavioral power skills are now more valuable to both employers and employees
  • Hard skills are soft and soft skills are hard (they are difficult to build and take extreme effort to obtain)
  • Learn the key to career progression


In this interactive session, HRO Today Association leadership will review research reports released in the first quarter of 2020, as well as preliminary data that is being finalized. HRO Today‘s research into how HR executives feel the pandemic is impacting their organizations will also be discussed.——————————————————————————————————————-

Key Takeaways:

  • How to track people analytics in a feedback-first workplace
  • Rethinking organizational structure and embracing reverse power dynamics
  • Embracing the “Work-family” model to maximize performance
  • Leveraging technology to return to employee engagement basics
