    “Diversity is being invited to the party;

    Inclusion is being asked to dance."

    Presenter: Anthony Paradiso, MS, SHRM-CP

    Location: Virtual (Registrants receive access info via email)

    “Diversity is being invited to the party; Inclusion is being asked to dance” coined by Vernā Meyers, Esq., a nationally recognized expert on diversity and inclusion, demonstrates the necessity for us not to look at diversity as a one and done solution to meet an organization’s diversity goals...it’s so much more than that. Inclusion takes that diversity and mixes it all together drawing out the uniqueness everyone brings to an organization, lifting up its employees and successfully moving the organization forward towards social and financial success. Join us as we explore unconscious bias – discussing what it is; how we address it in our everyday lives and how we can address it in our workplaces & in recruiting.

    Learning objectives: 

    1. To discuss & understand the famous quote by Vernā Myers (a D & I expert), “Diversity is being invited to the party; inclusion is being asked to dance.”
    2. To better understand the concept of unconscious bias and how biases have an impact in recruitment.
    3. To realize we all have biases, own our own activity & commit to action.

    Engage Your Employees to Increase Productivity & Profit

    Presenter: Lily Benjamin

     Thursday, April 11th, 2019 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM  

    Location: Lloyd Staffing, Melville, NY

    Be part of this dynamic and thought-provoking session, in which Lily Benjamin’s background will inspire the generation of ideas on how to foster a culture of engagement and performance in your own organization. Lily will draw from her own experience on championing and driving enterprise-wide large-scale change management strategies to increase employee engagement, despite inherent and overwhelming challenges of doing more with less in today’s marketplace. During this session, workgroup exercises will focus on the following objectives:
    • Gaining support from C-suite leadership
    • Aligning professional development initiatives with overall business strategies
    • Identifying strategies to increase employee engagement and personalize talent development
    • Sharing best practices in a globally matrixed organization

    According to recent research on the service-profit chain, there is a direct correlation between engagement and profitability. For this reason, focusing on employee engagement is a business imperative and a key to improving business performance. Employee engagement is a hot topic, as it has become understood that value is created by satisfied, loyal, and productive employees. Keeping employees satisfied and retaining top talent is a challenge due to changes in the global marketplace, as organizations have become flatter. There are now more interdependencies all around, both internally and externally.

    Increasing engagement by leveraging the service-profit chain does not happen by chance. Elite CEOs and senior leadership must focus not only on clients but also on strategies of engagement that promote employee commitment and increased organizational performance. Leadership must be strategic and visible, as it is the perception of support that promotes employee loyalty to the success of the company, which leads to positive organizational performance.

    In this session, Lily will draw from her experience in designing and integrating employee engagement strategies, generating significant cost savings, productivity, and organizational performance.

    The emotional experience of work is often overlooked in today’s professional settings. In an effort to better understand the emotional experiences of leaders and employees, as well as how emotional experiences impact organizational performance, it is important for talent development professionals to deepen their understanding of what emotional intelligence is and how it works.

    Learning objectives: 

    1. Learn about emotional intelligence.
    2. Learn how to apply emotional intelligence within organizations
    3. Learn how the use of emotional intelligence assessment and training can improve organizational performance

    About Richard A. Mendelson

    Dr. Richard A. Mendelson is a Professor in the Graduate Psychology Department at Keiser University. He is a Member of the APA, SIOP, and CREIO (Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations). His research focuses on emotional intelligence applied to work and educational settings, blending emotional intelligence with artificial intelligence, and he also dabbles in the manner in which emotional intelligence impacts surgical outcomes for chronic

    pain patients. He has published articles about emotional intelligence in peer-reviewed journals, books, and is currently editing a book about emotional intelligence in higher education for Jossey-Bass (scheduled for release, Fall 2019).
