The Role of Social Media in Communicating Total Rewards
Monday, May 23  |  1:30pm - 2:45pm
Forum Code: FORUMM1

Everywhere we turn, we are hearing about how social media is changing the way people are communicating both professionally and personally.  Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter are part of everyday vocabulary but also part of strategic business plans.   And we are told that if our organization isn’t using social media, we will be quickly left behind.   While there is lot of information available about the use of social media for consumer marketing and employment recruiting, how are companies successfully using it in the total rewards profession?  And most importantly, what is your organization doing with social media in the total rewards area? How are you using social media to enhance your internal communications efforts?

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear what others are doing as well discuss your organization’s approach.  Together we’ll explore the pros and cons, share success stories and potentially hear about some not so successful choices.  Most importantly, we will learn from each other about what opportunities exist and how we can best leverage them for our organizations.

Performance Management:  Moving From Theory to Reality
Monday, May 23  |  3:15pm - 4:30pm
Forum Code: FORUMM2

The challenges of performance management continue to frustrate many in the HR profession.  After many years and much talk, survey results confirm that not much has changed.  The majority of organizations are less than satisfied with their performance management programs. For many, it seems like the same issues come up again and again.  Yet, the design and redesign of performance management programs don’t fix the problems.  Is performance management viewed as just another HR process instead of having strategic value?  Or are you one of the few who have had great success in this area?

Come join us to share your experiences and recurring issues with your peers and colleagues.  During this highly interactive session, we’ll explore not only the challenges, but also a new direction.  We’ll discuss how to move past the theory and head towards a future where performance management can truly make a difference in your organization.

Future of Total Rewards: Part 1 – Rebuilding After the Financial Crisis
Tuesday, May 24  |  10:45am - 12:00pm
Forum Code: FORUMT1

The financial crisis has provided an opportunity for total rewards professionals. With little or no money for merit increases, bonuses or incentives, organizations have to rethink the employee value proposition on how to motivate and retain key talent.

Come share your viewpoints on whether these changes are temporary until the economy returns or if they represent the future of total rewards and hear what other organizations are thinking.

Future of Total Rewards: Part 2 – What Are the Possibilities?
Tuesday, May 24  |  1:30pm - 2:45pm
Forum Code: FORUMT2

Let’s assume the recession has changed the employee value proposition. Both employers and employees needs and desires have been altered. Thus, let’s explore what can be done in the area of total rewards to adapt to these changes. What possibilities and options are available to organizations?

Have you ever considered developing customized total rewards plans for each individual?  Is it the best way to deliver to each employee what’s most important to him or her?  And is it realistic to achieve individual customization based on the internal culture of your organization? Customization is just one option though. What else might organizations do to attract, retain, and motivate employees during this new era?

Come participate in a lively discussion about a different way of achieving total rewards success.   Share the victories and challenges you have experienced while trying to attract, motivate, and retain key individuals with different needs and priorities.  And discuss how an organization’s culture can affect success based on the level of flexibility needed to really make  these different options work.
