October 14, 2015 ~ Addressing the Elephant(s) in the Room: Communication Across Cultures
Human Resources leaders and practitioners must continue to reinvent themselves to stay relevant in a workforce that gets more and more diverse everyday. It is essential to understand the nuances in attracting and developing diverse talent. Thus, understanding and embracing cultural differences can go a long way in creating a more inclusive work environment. Talent management must become more than just "checking the box". HR leaders must instead begin to focus on the positive impact a truly diverse and inclusive work environment, where everyone feels engaged and motivated to deliver top performance, can have on a company's top and bottom line business results.
In this session, we will discuss:
• The role that implicit bias plays in organizations, and
• How to move past the "elephants in the room" to create authentic relationships.
Participants will walk away with resources for further study, and key scenarios to share with their organizations to begin these important discussions.
