TalentCon Virtual Conference: Talent Management During Times of Uncertainty provides the information your organization needs to keep your corporate culture alive during times of uncertainty by focusing on engagement, retention, and employee productivity strategies.

The workforce of the future is finally here! For decades, experts were predicting that digital disruption would impact workplaces, but nobody predicted a pandemic would be the ultimate driver of this change. From remote work to corporate culture and everything in between, COVID-19 has changed the way we work and interact with our colleagues for the foreseeable future.

On top of the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 brought about renewed interest in racial justice and inequality with the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and countless others. As a result, HR professionals are now taking a second look at their diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) programs to make sure all employees are being represented and respected in the workplace.

With so much change in such a short amount of time, the future is clearly uncertain, but you can set your organization and your employees up for success by planning ahead. The TalentCon Virtual Conference: Talent Management During Times of Uncertainty delivers the strategies you need now to:

  • Create a diverse and inclusive culture.
  • Build teams in the age of social distancing and remote work.
  • Bridge the generational divide to create one cohesive workforce.
  • Establish a hybrid culture for distributed workers.
  • Train employees for future success.


After participating in this education, you will be able to:

  • Discover how new talent can successfully collaborate with your existing workforce.
  • Implement strategies for creating a more inclusive culture.
  • Create peer resource groups and other networking outlets to help aid workers.
  • Utilize peer-to-peer learning to develop and retain talent.
  • Recognize the difference between the internal and external characteristics of pressure and obstacles.
  • And more!


During the TalentCon Virtual Conference: Talent Management During Times of Uncertainty, you can earn valuable CEUs and have the opportunity to connect with speakers and get real-time answers to your most pressing questions during our live networking Q&A session at the end of each day.

Presented by Greg Hawks, Corporate Culture Specialist and Keynote Speaker

The three elements that create rapids in a river are the same that create rapids in the workplace: pressure, obstacles, and terrain change. These also happen to be the three greatest challenges in the workplace. We've had A LOT of change in 2020 and 2021. How do we effectively navigate these tumultuous times and stay on course?

In every raft, there is a guide. Their model of leadership gives us a perspective about how we can effectively contribute to the success of our teams. In our TalentCon Opening Keynote, Hawks will show you how to:

  • Recognize the difference between the internal and external characteristics of pressure and obstacles.
  • Learn to love obstacles.
  • Gain insight into leading like a guide, which appears contrary to standard leadership thinking.

But now a new generation has emerged: Generation Z. How does Gen Z talent differ from Millennial talent? What makes Gen Zs tick?

In order to attract and retain Gen Z talent, you must understand the generation as a whole and then create a game plan that will keep this talent pool retained for their entire careers. But where do you even begin? This session will help get you started!

3:25 p.m. – 4:25 p.m. Eastern / 12:25p.m. – 1:25 p.m. Pacific
Presented by Lisa Jackson, President, Corporate Culture Pros 

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, many businesses and organizations were forced into remote work settings to help combat and contain the virus, and as this remote work “experiment” becomes the new way of life, employers must come to terms with the fact that corporate culture has been forever changed.

If your workforce is divided among remote workers and in-house staff, you may be wondering how you can create a corporate culture that seamlessly combines these distributed teams into one united front. Well, you’re in luck! In this session, an industry expert will provide you with the tips and tricks you’ll need in order to create an optimal hybrid culture. You’ll also learn:

  • The importance of corporate culture as it relates to talent attraction and retention,
  • How to respond to negative Glassdoor reviews and implement change for a better culture,
  • The significance of using employee feedback to help improve your culture,
  • Steps for bringing remote workers and in-house staff together to create a cohesive culture,
  • And more!

Presented by Greg Hawks, Lisa Jackson, and Ira Wolfe

If you had questions from the day’s event, here’s your opportunity to get real-time answers from the speakers themselves in this live Q&A networking session. Attendees will have the opportunity to connect with speakers and their peers in an informal, virtual setting.


Day 2: Thursday, June 24, 2021

Peer-to-Peer Learning and Mentoring: Your Ticket to Better Institutional Knowledge
1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. Pacific
Presented by Thomas A. Toth, Managing Director and Founder, dWeb Studios, Inc.

While Baby Boomers still make up a portion of the workforce, organizations must start planning now for their eventual mass exodus. And if your Boomer workers have been at your organization for years, you’re probably panicking about all the lost knowledge they’ll take with them when they leave.

Fear not! There are a few ways you can overcome the knowledge gap, and it starts with utilizing your existing workers. Enter: peer-to-peer learning and mentoring. These training methods are a great way to boost your employees’ skill sets while keeping institutional knowledge in the workplace. In this session, you’ll learn:

  • How to implement a peer-to-peer learning program,
  • What major components must go into this training,
  • How to match employees up so they can create the perfect knowledge partnership,
  • What to do with the information that is learned, and
  • How to develop employees to take over for retiring leaders.


We Want Working Moms Back in the Workforce!
2:10 p.m. – 3:10 p.m. Eastern / 11:10 a.m. – 12:10 p.m. Pacific
Presented by H. Juanita "Nita" Beecher, Esq., Counsel, Fortney Scott, and Yolanda Hunter, HR Consultant

Throughout 2020, employers across the globe turned to mass layoffs as a way to reduce costs and stay afloat during the COVID-19 pandemic, but unfortunately for women, this talent pool makes up the largest portion of unemployed workers in the United States.

By January 2021, nearly 80% of all unemployed workers over the age of 20 were female. Layoffs aren’t all to blame; some working women decided it was better to not work at all and just stay at home to keep their families safe. As we slowly begin to return to “normal,” one thing is clear: We want working moms back in the workforce!

As we know, having a diverse talent pool is great for business for a variety of reasons, but given the trajectory of the pandemic, some workplaces are starting to revert to being entirely male-dominated. How can you attract and retain working mothers and other female talent? After attending this session, you’ll be able to:

  • Recognize the importance of having female talent in the workplace.
  • Implement strategies for hiring and retaining working mothers.
  • Understand how peer resource groups help diverse talent needs.
  • Create peer resource groups and other networking outlets to help aid workers.
  • Develop a culture that supports all female talent, especially working mothers.

Unconscious Bias Training Doesn’t Work—Try This Instead!
3:25 p.m. – 4:25 p.m. Eastern / 12:25 p.m. – 1:25 p.m. Pacific
Presented by Jason Treu, Chief People Officer, Unstoppable Workplaces

Unconscious or implicit biases are social stereotypes about certain groups of people that individuals form outside their own conscious awareness. While you may not think you’re discriminating against someone, your actions and words could be saying otherwise, and the consequences of these actions can have a lasting negative impact on your organization and its brand.

To overcome these biases, many organizations have tried to implement training programs, but as Starbucks learned back in 2018, this training may end up missing the mark. The company conducted unconscious bias training after one location called the cops on two innocent black men waiting for a friend. While Starbucks employees appreciated that their company acted and did something about unconscious racial bias in the workplace, they still felt that the training was lacking in some areas.

Starbucks’s experience has shown that unconscious bias training just does not work! So what can HR professionals do to help improve DEI in their organizations? This session will explore a variety of options to help you understand and overcome unconscious bias, and you’ll also learn:

  • The importance of DEI in recruitment and talent retention,
  • Examples of what unconscious bias looks like,
  • Strategies for creating a more inclusive culture,
  • And more!
