Workforce Magazine Spring Event
On June 11, Workforce magazine hosted their Spring 2014 live online event to help people better understand employee matters within companies. The 4 ½ hour event had many speakers including Gary Barbosa, Director Workforce Strategy and Planning at Lockheed Martin Corporation and Laura Agostini, Chief Talent Officer at JWT Worldwide.
Many topics facing HR were covered from promoting wellness and creating a great place to work to dealing with regulations. Gary Barbosa explained how workforce planning can positively impact decisions such as strategic partnerships, site selections and projects to pursue.
Laura Agostini emphasized how enjoyable places to work have better stock market returns and much less employee turnover. She further explained that good company cultures are designed and must be continuously managed with involvement at every level.
Attend Live, Online
This was a great event to be able to attend virtually. It helped shine a light on how employee decisions are so important in companies and how there are many success stories and ways to make an impact.
Also, I enjoyed seeing the passion from people from a broad variety of industries. Creating great places to work is important for all industries because it improves motivation and allows people to more easily come together on solutions.
