The Fox Valley Society for Human Resource Management (FVSHRM) is the Fox Valley's leading professional association for members of the human resource management profession. As one of the local affiliate chapters of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), the Fox Valley SHRM Chapter is dedicated to advancing the human resource profession and serving its more than 350 members by providing them with a variety of opportunities for professional growth, leadership development, and networking.

Mission

The purpose of SHRM is to provide an opportunity for Human Resource professionals in the Fox Valley area to meet in a spirit of cooperation for purposes of education and information-sharing relating to human resource management. The Chapter’s mission is to enhance the professionalism of human resource management in the Fox Valley area, to establish friendly communication between the various employers, and to prepare human resource professionals for their roles as leaders and decision makers within their organizations.


Legislative Update

What happened to the American Health Care Act? (Spoiler alert: crash and burn).  Comp time for private employers? Expansion of FMLA?  Federal ban the box? Read more for what's happening in Congress!  And some equally interesting developments locally, with Wisconsin legislative proposals to increase the salary basis threshold (so that $970/week could still happen!) and prohibit employers from requesting past compensation history from prospective employees.

    What is Leadercast Live?
    Leadercast Live is the largest one-day leadership event in the world. Broadcast live each year from Atlanta to 100,000+ people in hundreds of locations around the world, Leadercast Live brings together many of the world’s most recognized and respected global leaders to create a leadership experience unlike any other.

    Leadercast 2017 will focus on what it means to be Powered by Purpose.

    What does it mean to be powered by purpose? To be part of a purpose-driven organization? To work with a team... of people who understand the meaning in addition to the metrics? To recognize that why you do what you do matters as much or more as what you do. Where defined values drive a strong culture and intentional leadership inspires amazing results.

    Leaders who are Powered by Purpose come from all walks of life … they are not limited to any single role or responsibility … no one type of company or industry or community. Instead, they have taken the time to distinguish their values, lead with intention, lift up their teams, and create a collective vision. And they are passionate about sharing their organization’s purpose with the world.

    Come to Leadercast 2017 – where every detail of the experience is purposefully crafted to inspire and engage you in surprising and meaningful ways. Discover the steps you can take to uncover your purpose … to reconnect to your organization’s why … and to truly live, work and play in this world, Powered by Purpose.

    Don’t let the idea of an HR Audit scare you!  Wipe out that mental image of a group of black suits with sunglasses tromping into your office.  That’s not the case with an HR Audit.  Instead, think of it as an HR Analysis and a roadmap to make your department even more effective.  A proactive review of your HR processes and structure can save you time and frustration, plus reduce your legal exposure. It can be as expansive or as focused as you choose.

    Join us for Insights and learn how an HR Audit can make your job easier.  We will discuss your options for the scope and scale of an audit and share recommendations of how to plan your audit project and how to ensure the audit findings result in action.

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 teamwork, motivation, engagement and recognition in their workplace.  Topics covered include:                                                                                                                

    • The Core Principles & Philosophy of Ubuntu
    • Creating a Shared Vision and Sense of Purpose
    • Inspiring Others to Greatness at Work
    • Creating Greater Rapport from Shared Experiences at Work
    • Creative Ways to Recognize Team Effort and Results

    Engaging & Retaining High Potential Employees Learn How Best to Identify, Develop and Retain Your High Potential Talent—Before They Leave Your Organization

    Organizations have dedicated and invested millions of dollars in identifying and developing High Potential employees (HIPOs) within their workforce.  This cream-of-the-crop top talent is often pegged for leadership roles early on in their careers and are the first to participate in innovative leadership development programs.  Despite the considerable amount of time and effort companies put into guiding them, studies show that many High Potentials remain unengaged in their work and continue to actively pursue other opportunities. In the last 12 months, 30% of High Potentials have changed jobs, a number that is expected to increase as the economy further improves.  Over 50% of executives feel their organizations are ineffective at managing and keeping top talent and 90% of CEOs rank a retention plan for the organization’s High Potentials as a top priority for Human Resources.  This session will cover the following topics:

    • The Need to Better Focus on High Potentials
    • How to Identify Your High Potentials
    • The Current Challenges with this Group of Top Performers
    • Six Strategies to Increase High Potential Engagement
    • A Case Study in Developing High Potentials    

    Discover the best practices of leading organizations as they seek to motivate and empower their High Potential population. Learn skills you can apply to your own workforce, from how best to identify High Potentials to keeping them engaged and invested in their work so that they can continue to perform at top levels. The time to get focused on these special performers is before they start leaving your organization!
