Cloud Technology presented by Mercer (9:15-10:45)

More and more, the way employees experience HR is through technology. Whether it’s through a web-based application, on-line chat, e-mail, or a mobile app, employees for the most part expect – maybe even want – an e-HR experience, and they expect it to be an exceptional consumer-grade experience.

At the same time, investments in HR cloud solutions continue to grow. Gartner suggests that spending on cloud-based HR solutions is growing faster than spending on installed or on-premises HR software, and cloud-based HR software will be 50% or more of total HR technology spending by 2017.

So it’s worth stepping back to make sure we understand: how cloud technology improves the user experience; the impact cloud technology will have on HR, and the business; and how we as HR professionals can effectively manage this change.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this session attendees will understand:

  • How cloud solutions differ from the legacy, on-premise solutions, and how that helps HR organizations deliver a better employee experience and better value to its customers
  • The impact of today’s best-in-class HR cloud solutions on HR and on HR’s customers, and how HR professionals need to re-tool in the new environment
  • What the common change management challenges are, and strategies for addressing them

Affordable Care Act Changes presented by Dorian Smith (11:00 – 12:00)

Republicans are attempting to make good on their campaign pledge to repeal and replace “Obamacare” (aka the Affordable Care Act).  We invite you to join our experts for a lively discussion on health policy issues affecting employers. While it is virtually impossible to know today where the legislative landscape will be in a month from now, our experts will be prepared to provide you with details on the latest and greatest regarding health care reform, which at the time of this seminar, may include enacted legislation.

Creating Inclusive Communities presented by Candace Baer (12:00 – 12:30)

Each of us has a story to tell. These stories of diversity and inclusion enrich our campus communities and move institutions along the path to greater cultural understanding and competence. CUPA-HR launched the Creating Inclusive Communities project to celebrate the experiences, perspectives and humanity of higher ed HR professionals. The project consists of portraits and narrative along with accompanying videos that provide an inspiring and insightful look into the unique and authentic lives of its subjects, their journeys and stories. Conversation starters and facilitation guides act as a resource for initiating conversations about diversity and inclusion on your campuses. In this session, you will gain insight into the project which will enhance your campus efforts to create more equitable and inclusive campus communities.
