Take this information back to your own workplace to help encourage financial wellness or learn about resources to help your employees. 

Not only will this workshop be valuable to you as an HR professional, it may give you some ideas for your own financial wellness.

Chance will share stories from his experience with his own finances as well as ideas he has learned from others. 

Session 2 Topic: The Future of HR - Can HR Be More Agile?

How can HR move more quickly to respond to the ever-changing needs of the organization?   We are experiencing unprecedented waves of change, and this will continue into the future. New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman writes in his latest book, “Thank You for Being Late,” that we are living in an “age of acceleration,” where the pace of change in technology, markets, and nature is doubling every year.  Our accepted truths about how society, politics, and business work are no longer relevant or useful—they have become obsolete!   Organizations must rethink the ways they operate—from strategy, to values, to operating models, to working with customers, to how work is performed. Thus, HR must rethink the way it operates and how HR work is performed.
