MEGA SESSION: Workplace Trends: Survival Secrets for the Next Decade

SHRM 2015 Annual Conference
This session will help you understand and prepare for trends that will dramatically affect your organization.

New employee demographics, attitudes, wants and needs are changing almost as fast as technology which means a radical shift in the way we conduct business, communicate, train employees and manage talent. You will learn about the changes in the family structures as well as the shifts in workforce composition. Morford will also share how to balance the demand for individual work/life balance with the long-term needs of the organization. Learn how to proactively address the legal issues that will arise as these trends begin taking place to avoid costly liability and begin developing new business programs that will address future organizational shifts.
