MGMT 1-2 | Building Kentucky’s Talent Pipeline: The Need for Employer Leadership in Workforce Development
Speakers:
Brittanie Dawson | Talent Pipeline Project Manager, Southwest Region, Kentucky Chamber Workforce Center
Laurie Mays | Equine Talent Pipeline Project Manager, Kentucky Chamber Workforce Center/KEEP

LaKisha Miller | Talent Pipeline Project Manager, Northeast Region, Kentucky Chamber Workforce Center
Sara Tracy | Talent Pipeline Project Manager, Southeast Region, Kentucky Chamber Workforce Center
Like many states, Kentucky is facing a workforce crisis. Bridging the Talent Gap, conducted by KYSHRM in 2017, found that 81% of Kentucky’s businesses are preparing for growth in the next three to five years. At the same time, 84% of employers have difficulties filling vacancies today. The talent landscape is changing and employer leadership is needed now more than ever. The Kentucky Chamber Workforce Center is changing the roadmap regarding an employer’s role in workforce development through a new initiative and tool known as Talent Pipeline Management (TPM). Utilizing supply chain management principles, TPM empowers employers to meaningfully engage with educators and stakeholders to build talent pipelines and drive improvement in how employees are recruited, trained, and employed. In addition to an overview of today’s workforce climate, this interactive session will dive into the most pressing workforce challenges businesses face today while exploring innovative initiatives underway to address them.

MGMT 1-8 | The Lonely HR – HR Departments of One!
Speakers:
Autumn Blakeman, SHRM-CP | Associate Consultant, Hanna Resource Group

Allison Pettrey, PHR, SHRM-CP | HR Consultant, Hanna Resource Group
Chase Adams, M.S., SHRM-CP | Consultant, Hanna Resource Group
In many small- to mid-size businesses, the HR department is a single brave soul (or, at the very least, it can feel like it). In this session, we will discuss tips, tricks, and tools to help streamline the tasks you are responsible for and make the function as impactful as it can be, from employee engagement to on-boarding to utilizing vendors. You’ll leave this session feeling empowered and prepared to take on any challenge (ok, maybe not ANY challenge, but a lot of them)!

MGMT 1-14 | The Impact of Human Resources on Employee Engagement: Diving Deep into the Practice (Approved for BMS credits!)
Speakers:
Mark Handley, MBA| Training Solutions Director, Incipio Workforce Solutions
Brad Shuck, EdD (FIU, 2010)| Associate Professor, Organizational Leadership and Learning, University of Louisville
Employee Engagement. We have all heard a great deal about it, and while most can acknowledge that having highly engaged employees is important. Determining the actions needed to move the needle on your organization’s aligned efforts around driving engagement is not always evident, or easy. The leadership function of Human Resources plays a critical role in setting the stage, defining the policies, and supporting the processes that all have a demonstrated and direct impact on the environment where engagement thrives. In this discussion-based, participant-centered session we’ll explore the areas where Human Resource professionals can have the greatest impact on the environmental conditions that influence engagement in their businesses, every day. Participants should expect dialogue and to leave with specific action-steps they can use to positively support their business and people through the intentional development of employee engagement.

MGMT 6-2 | The JHA: Key to Worker Safety
Speaker:
Dr. David Stumbo, OHST | Assistant Professor, Eastern Ky University
Workplace injuries account for substantial costs, both direct and indirect, so prevention is worthwhile. The Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) method is a proactive method for assessing risks and hazardous conditions present in the workplace and prescribing control measures to prevent injuries. The JHA method is recommended by OSHA. It utilizes your employees as a resource in the process, considers each job in terms of component tasks, allows prioritization by risk, and is supported by tracking systems which can range from simple to complex depending on the nature of the specific worksite. This program will detail the elements of the JHA process, provide an example demonstration, and provide you an opportunity to practice a JHA yourself.

At Norton Women’s & Children’s Hospital we collaborated with St. Matthew’s first responders to conduct an active shooter simulation over the summer. Learn how a community partnership can assist you in fine tuning your program.

MGMT 8-2 | Why “Re-Fit” Is as Important as “Best Fit”
Speaker:
John Broer | Curator of Epic Stuff, In2Great

The statistics on disengagement are clear – there is an alarmingly high number of people that consider themselves disengaged in organizations today. What companies fail to realize is that the statistics on disengagement tell us a story “after the fact.” Our attention needs to be on leading indicators that focus on the drives and traits necessary to be successful in a particular job or role and matching our people and their natural drives and traits with those jobs. This is what we call “Re-Fit” – analyzing and aligning our current work force to jobs that leverage their natural strengths and increase the likelihood of job satisfaction, increased performance, and enhanced engagement. This highly interactive session will offer the participants their very own behavioral data as a means of understanding how the analytics apply to the concept of Re-Fit.
