Employee Experience: Is Your Company Living Up to Expectations?
Panelists include
Stacy Leger, Talent Acquisition Manager, May Institute
Toni Shelton, Manager of Professional Development, Denver Public Schools
and more!
Moderated by Patrick Casey, Director of Recruiting, HqO

When we think of “employee experience (EX),” the number of years a worker has with a specific skillset comes to mind, but that’s not the case. In today’s candidate-driven market, EX refers to the experience you are offering employees that work at your company. By offering employees a favorable experience, you’re more likely to retain your top performers longer. But how do you go about offering a terrific EX? In this panel discussion, your leadership peers will cover the ways in which their company successfully implements a good EX and offer strategies for you to take home and try out at your organization.


How to Improve Performance Management Through Training
Moderated by Toni Shelton, Manager of Professional Development, Denver Public Schools

It can be time-consuming, cumbersome, and loathed by many. That’s right, we’re talking about the dreaded performance review. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Training is a valuable way to keep workers on track, year-round, so when review season arrives, your workers won’t be surprised. But how should you go about training your workers on what is expected of them all year long? Share ideas and strategies for improving the performance review process with your peers in this roundtable session.
