12:40 pm - 1:10 pm Reimagining Talent Management to Drive Business Performance and Evolve the Enterprise: An Agile Workforce

Fernando Sanchez-Arias - Chief People Officer, Global Custom Commerce The Home Depot
The changing demographic profile of the workforce is shifting the expectations of the work experience; new technology trends are reshaping the world of business; talent pipelines continue to shrink as the US approaches a state of full-employment; digital disruption continues to challenge organizations to transform and reskill. In such a context, business leaders have to re-think the way their organization is designed around new ways of working. The concept of career is morphing into a continuous learning experience, enabled by always-on, on-demand learning; talent attraction and retention continue to challenge leaders to improve the employee journey and focus on enhancing the employee experience; workplace culture continues to play a key role in all of the above.

Our engaging opening keynote will introduce the discussion on how can Chief Talent Executives help drive performance, create value, and prepare the organization of the future, in which agility and cooperation play a central role. Topics include:

•Redesigning the organization around new ways of working to foster cooperation and agility
•Rolling out new talent programs: how to ensure wide-spread adoption?
•Leading culture change: a continuous process of transformation

3:35 pm - 4:10 pm What do Employees Really Want? Enhancing Employee Experience to Increase Engagement

We have all heard how many “actively disengaged” employees there are in the workforce. Despite years of companies trying to drive engagement, the number of disengaged workers hasn’t changed much, if at all. Why is it that most employee engagement programs don’t show results? Employees want to be heard; they want to be valued and they want to make a difference. Employers want – in fact, need – productive, engaged workers. Perhaps there is a different way to think about employee engagement.

In this session we will share a transformational approach to employee engagement that actually works. These simple and effective methods can help L&D and HR departments to yield engagement and performance improvements broadly across the organization. Be prepared to learn:

  • The key link between engagement, performance and success (both personal and organizational)
  • How L&D and HR departments can improve both engagement and organizational performance
  • The most common mistakes companies make before, during and after an employee survey and how to avoid them




The challenges are well known: businesses continue to face a huge gap for diverse senior-leadership positions. We see fewer women, and people of color, at each step along the path to the C-suite. The barriers are increasingly well-known too: a mix of cultural factors, ingrained mind-sets, and outdated behavior, as well as a lack of an effective framework to tackle the challenge.

This session will explore a grass-roots approach to broaden the access to development for diverse leadership. Join the Prudential and Perry Ellis Talent Development leaders as they share an innovative approaches to:

•Tapping into a broader range of women leaders than what is readily available in the linear talent pool
•Working with the community at large to explore unique opportunities for local diverse talent
•Moving the needle from mentoring to sponsoring, encouraging other leaders to take ownership of the development at different levels, such as directors, and managers.

Transforming your business performance often times means transforming your corporate culture, employee selection, and employee development programs at the same time.
