2016 Catalyst Awards Conference

March 16, 2016

Brad Harrington - Empowered Employees: Effective in Work and Life

Women are often asked if they can “have it all,” but how often are men asked if they want more? How can corporate policies and public actions help all employees achieve true work-life effectiveness? Recently, the public and private sectors have started to focus on creating workplaces that empower employees to be effective in all aspects of their lives. Innovations include adopting gender-neutral family leave policies, instituting flexible work scheduling, and conducting pay equity studies in order to close the wage gap. How can corporate policies influence societal changes and vice versa? In this session, women and men with and without children will discuss how to build workplaces that engage and support employees at all life stages.

AWLP 2016 Future of Work Forum

March 8-9, 2016

Jennifer Fraone - The Emerging Workforce: Attracting, Developing and Retaining Today's Top Talent

By 2020, 50% of the U.S. workforce will be Millennials and by 2030, 75% will make up the global workforce. One of the greatest challenges for organizations today is determining how to attract, develop and retain this talent. It's critical to understand what drives and motivates them and what factors encourage engagement, loyalty and longevity with an organization. A November 2015 study of 1,100 young professionals from five leading organizations provides data and insight into what this new workforce wants and how organizations can enhance the employee experience to best appeal to high-potential talent.
