“People are an organization’s most important resource,” is a commonly cited leadership notion that is seldom fully realized in today’s organizations.  What things can any manager or member of the organization do to encourage and support the best efforts of everyone working together on joint goals to better serve the public, more efficiently use taxpayer revenues, and increase the meaning and purpose of their own lives to boot?   Best-selling author and international expert, Dr. Bob Nelson (1501 Ways to Reward Employees, The Management Bible, Ubuntu!) will share his research, philosophy and techniques for maximizing human potential in organizations today.

1. Five Trends Shaping the Future of Work – An Overview of the Leading Labor Trends that will Affect all Organizations in the Upcoming Years


Several emerging human resources trends will come to dominate the competitive success of every organization.  In this session, leading authority and international best-selling author, Dr. Bob Nelson will share his research and insights on the emerging workforce trends as described in his book 1501 Ways to Reward Employees (the new edition of 1001 Ways to Reward Employees that sold 1.7 million copies).  The trends that will be presented are:


  1. The Pending Shortage of Skilled Workers
  2. The Rise of the Millennial Generation
  3. The Expansion of Contingent Workers
  4. The Evolving Role of Virtual Employees
  5. The Globalization of the Labor Market


Dr. Nelson will present current research and data about the above trends and specifically address what HR professionals need to do to help create a sense of urgency in leading their executive team to proactively address these issues before they become problems for the organization and its ability to compete.  Attendees will leave with a broader perspective on the leading labor trends impacting human resources and practical strategies for addressing those trends in their workplace.


Second Session - 10:45am – 12:00am


2. Strategies for a More Engaged Workforce – Research-based Strategies for Increasing Employee Engagement in Challenging Recessionary Times


Most employees today feel overworked and underappreciated and the Great Recession has added to this burden. During times of change when we are asking them to do more with less, they report feeling less valued and more stressed for their efforts than ever before. Based on his award-winning book Keeping Up in a Down Economy and 1501 Ways to Reward Employees, Bob Nelson, Ph.D., will expand your thinking of how best to leverage the potential of your staff -- even with little time, resources or budget. This session will focus on core researched-based elements found in strong cultures of engagement that inspire employees to new levels of performance and help to create an exciting, positive work environment and competitive people advantage for the organization even in tough, challenging and recessionary times. Based on recent engagement research, six dimensions will be presented with examples that any manager/organization can implement to create a more motivating work environment for their employees today:

• Create a Clear and Compelling Direction

• Direct, Open and Honest Communication

• Involve Employees and Encourage Initiative

• Increase Employee Autonomy, Flexibility and Support

• Continued Focus on Career Growth and Development

• Recognize and Reward High Performance


Dr. Nelson will show how these elements can be brought to bear through specific techniques and applications, drawing upon his own research and doctoral work as well as experience in working with hundreds of organizations on the topic. He will show how the best companies take a focused and long-term strategic view of their employee resource that systematically integrates the engagement practices into the daily work practices of its managers, identifying and acting on opportunities in timely and specific ways. This session will be filled with specific real-life examples and techniques that can be immediately applied back on the job by attendees to systematically leverage, build and sustain a culture of engagement in their workplace.


Third Session – 01:00 pm – 02:30 pm


3. Creating a Culture of Recognition - Build Recognition into the Strategies and Behaviors of the Organization, Transform Your Workplace into an Employer of Choice


Recognition for performance represents the single most validated principle for driving desired behavior and performance in today’s challenging economic times.  The primary reason why managers don’t use recognition is because they report “they aren’t sure how to do it well,” according to doctoral research by Bob Nelson, the primary thought leader on this topic and an international best-selling author of the multi-million copy 1501 Ways to Reward Employees and The 1001 Rewards & Recognition Fieldbook: The Complete Guide. Dr. Nelson will show you how to create a culture of recognition, regardless of the size or type of business you are in. Compared to the average company, employees in a recognition-focused company are 5 times more likely to feel valued, 7 times more likely to stay, and 11 times more likely to feel completely committed to their jobs and mission of the organization. This presentation will expand your thinking of what recognition really means and what you can do to build it into your culture. Far from being a “fuzzy feel-good notion,” Dr. Nelson will show you practical ways as to how you can get your managers to treat employees in a way that maximizes their willingness to use their best efforts on a daily basis to create an exciting, positive work environment that produces more focused, competitive employees that better serve the strategies of the firm. Attendees will learn:


• The business case for recognition; why it’s the smart business thing to do, not just the nice thing

• Recent research about what most motivates today’s workers in tight, recessionary times

• How to leverage and maximize the effectiveness of recognition – even with little time or resources

• How to get managers on board in both supporting and doing more recognition

• How to harness the power of best practices from other organizations, as well as your own

• How to build and sustain progress, keeping your recognition efforts fresh and relevant


Forth Session – 03:00 pm – 04:30 pm
