This session will help you become more aware of the connection between profitability and associate engagement and the role that engaging learning experiences have on overall organizational health.

Topic: Rehire don’t retire: how to keep the wisdom of your baby boomers to reduce the leadership gap.
If 80 are the new 60, your retiring baby boomers have the challenge and need to keep working. They might need the money as their retirement fund will not cover their longer lives and they need to stay active. On the other hand, you have a leadership gap because your talented millennials lack the experience to be the new leaders.
Create a win-win strategy in your organization establishing programs that will allow you to keep the wisdom of your retiring baby boomers and transfer it to your emerging leaders to reduce your leadership gap.
This program will present ideas on how to create a network of internal and external mentors, coaches and facilitators with your own experienced workforce to accelerate leadership and develop your people.
From mentoring programs to mastermind facilitators to professional coaching your retirees are an asset you can evolve instead of lose.
Retiring programs will benefit by participants learning how to create programs to retain wisdom of retiring people with effective programs.

Topic: The term competency is understood and manifested multiple ways. Competency programs can become complex.
This complexity leads to frustration during program implementation. Organizational leaders rebel at the amount of time taken to perform assessments, supervisors get frustrated determining who can really perform the work and wonder about the program’s value, and employees struggle to reach vague definitions of achievement.
Kent Nuttall presents a strategy to create competence and qualification structures that are simple while still differentiating personnel achievements. Competence programs, built on work output provide greater clarity of employee expectations and provide increased guidance for the creation of employee development strategies.
