Learning to Learn Is the Future of Work

Joe Marin, Vice President, Education and Training, Printing Industries of America

There's a changing relationship between learning and working. What is learned today will likely not be relevant in a few short years. Your staff needs training opportunities to stay relevant and productive--employees who continuously learn transform into leaders who are productive, happier, and stick around longer. But what's the right formula--and more importantly--what is your company's responsibility in all of this? What does "good" looks like when it comes to learning? Joe Marin will lead a discussion on the changing relationship between learning and working; "old" thinking and "new" thinking when it comes to changes in careers, jobs, and work; how work has become the primary place where we learn--and what you can do to support and foster employee development.

The lack of an emotional connection to a job is common among so many--but not for the highly-motivated, and often overlooked, group of individuals working with different circumstances, such as intellectual and developmental disabilities. These extraordinary men and women desire to work in their community and feel empowered to do so. They bring a level of joy and authenticity to the workplace, directly affecting other employees and the company as a whole. Ivy Slater will interview Amber Coffman, National Director of Jobs Development and Eileen Schwagerl, Jobs Program Supervisor from Best Buddies on ways that companies should embrace these individuals, welcome them to their organization and provide them with the best support necessary to achieve their goals.

Managing the Risks Of "Bring Your Own Device": Information Security, Employee Privacy, and Beyond

Philip Gordon, Shareholder, Littler Mendelson

Employers, in droves, are getting out of the business of providing mobile devices to their workforce as employees increasingly insist on using their personal mobile devices to do work. The cost savings and boost in employee productivity of this BYOD movement have been a boon for employers. However, the movement to BYOD, if not properly managed, puts an organization's confidential business information and trade secrets at risks of misappropriation and increases the likelihood of damaging security breaches involving employees' and customers' personal information. At the same time, employees' concerns about the impact of BYOD programs on their privacy are spiking as personal mobile devices become repositories for highly confidential information about personal health, family and more. To complicate matters further, employers cannot ignore the potential that moving to BYOD will result in non-exempt employees working off-the-clock or the possibility that cost savings will be reduced because of state laws mandating reimbursement of BYOD expenses. This presentation will address all of these critical risks and provide practical recommendations for addressing them.
