Employees today are reeling from the uncertainty and changes they’ve faced in 2020. To lead them through turbulent times, you need to not only recognize their feelings of fear and stress but understand how to respond to them. C2HR CON speaker Jennifer Sumiec of Empathia Inc. defines the three Ps of crisis management, identifies the four stages of how people react to change, and provides practical tips to embrace adaptability.


Allyship, Inclusion & Belonging Take Center Stage  

There’s a monumental difference between being included and feeling like you belong and thinking you’re an ally and actually showing up as one. During the virtual C2HR CON, a dynamic group of industry leaders will reflect on their personal experiences and share strategies for cultivating a truly inclusive culture of belonging.


Three Tips to Identify, Attract & Land a Passive Prospect 

Chances are your best candidate is not actively searching for a job. With nearly 30 years of recruiting experience, Laurie Kahn, CEO of Media Staffing Network, shares how to shift from a reactive to a proactive talent acquisition strategy with a proven three-step process to attract passive job seekers.



Avoid Three Mistakes When Pitching Your Innovative Idea 

Have you ever had a great idea that you just couldn't get your boss to buy into? We've all been there. The experts at The Cable Center's Intrapreneurship Academy, Robyn Bolton and Janice Silver, leverage their insight to help your creative idea take flight.
