1:00 p.m.
Drive Organizational Change Without Overloading Managers
Presenter: Sarah Evans

On top of an already challenging job with an often unwieldy span of control, today’s managers are also asked to implement five, ten, fifteen or more organizational initiatives. Organizations need to re-scope the clinical manager role to enable managers to focus on advancing the organization’s most critical priorities (without burning out).

Win Talent in a Candidate-Centric Market
Presenter: Micha'le Simmons

An increasingly diverse array of health care organizations are going after the same pool of talent, and competition is getting fierce. To succeed, you’ll need to shift from an “employer- centric” approach to recruiting to a “candidate-centric” one, where applying is easy and candidates hear back fast.

Build the Right HR Business Partner Model for Your Organization
Presenter: Micha'le Simmons

Many health systems are pursuing an HR business partner model—but changing the structure of HR isn’t enough to deliver meaningful value to the organization. The model will fail if business partners have the wrong scope, the wrong skillset or the wrong support around them.

Win the Loyalty of Your Millennial Nurses

Turn Annual Performance Management Into a Year-Round Conversation
Speaker: Michale Simmons

Organizations within and outside of health care are increasingly questioning the value of all the time spent preparing for and delivering annual performance reviews. We’ll discuss case studies of companies that have “eliminated” (or at least, dramatically deemphasized) the annual review and re-allocated managers’ time to giving feedback throughout the year.
