Opening Keynote:
The Architecture of Resilience: Critical Ingredients to Leadership Success

Employee burnout has reached epidemic proportions. What can today’s leaders do to proactively prevent this? How can leaders address the declining productivity, higher turnover, and absenteeism resulting from burnout? In this thought provoking keynote, Dorrie Fontaine, professor and dean of University of Virginia’s School of Nursing will reveal how strategically creating an Architecture of Resilience empowered her employees to focus on the organization’s core mission and exceed the organization’s goals and business objectives.

Lunch Keynote:
The 115th Congress and the Trump Administration: The Washington Outlook for HR Public Policy

Lisa Horn, SHRM
Director, Congressional Affairs
Director, Workplace Flexibility Initiative

Now what? Back in January, President Trump and Republican leaders of Congress promised to move forward with a very aggressive 100-day agenda, with many issues critical to the HR profession being at the forefront. Issues like repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, reforming the tax code, addressing interior immigration enforcement, including worksite enforcement and proposals to expand paid leave and workplace flexibility. Taking the past nine months into account, how will the issues affect employers and employees in your organization? How can you best engage and prepare for what’s ahead? This session will provide an up-to-date discussion of current congressional activity, as well as federal regulatory and judicial activity.
