Froedtert's DEI Journey

D&I Now What?

Strategic Opportunity:

During the Coronavirus & Social Injustice Learning Circle on June 15, 50 people gathered to discuss the implications of the Black Lives Matter movement in the workplace. Specifically, the way in which L&D should respond. From multiple chat comments during the session, there is a clear struggle to find the right way to talk about race and racism in the workplace. After decades-long narrative about meritocracy, we are forced to confront the role of race, positive and negative stereotypes (white privilege) play in hiring, developing, and promoting employees. The conversation is fraught with challenges.

What we will explore together:

During this session, we’ll explore those difficult topics and strategies Organizational Learning & Development may apply to navigate an incredibly challenging topic.

Learning 4.0 Framework

Applied Learning Science + Workflow Learning
Strategic Opportunity:

Organizations are striving to develop a culture of continuous learning by developing coaching strategies and fostering a collaborative working environment. Engaging co-workers, communities of practice, learn by doing, and various microlearning solutions to unlock continuous learning for the digital age. Through a collaborative ecosystem of tech-savvy peer-to-peer and expert assessments, employees actively engage in the mastery of skill development. Asynchronous coaching strategies can help organizations reinforce skills, facilitate feedback, increase collaboration, and share expertise across teams.

What we will explore together

In this session, Tim Foley will share Navistar’s case study on efforts to build and curate learning teams around an Agile process with their Performance Innovation Team.

  • Using Learning 4.0 strategies for expanding our coaching paradigm from a 1-on-1 activity a Coachee receives from a Coach.
  • Integrating coaching strategies with technology-based platforms able to scale a culture of continuous learning and feedback.
  • Tapping a rich body of knowledge workers’ peer coaching + feedback to help management scale knowledge retention & skill building.
  • Establishing meaningful social learning connections and training strategies at scale.

Building a Comprehensive DEI Training Program

A Peer-Review A DEI Training Framework For Changing The Conversation
Strategic Opportunity:

Last June during the Coronavirus & Social Injustice Learning Circle on June 15, 50 people gathered to discuss the implications of the Black Lives Matter movement in the workplace. Specifically, the way in which Learning & Development should respond. From multiple chat comments during the session, there is a clear struggle to find the right way to talk about race, racism and other topics related to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace.

After a decades-long narrative about meritocracy, we are forced to confront the role of Learning and Talent professionals in attracting, hiring, developing, engaging, retaining, and promoting employees, while honoring our commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Creating a meaningful DEI Framework for corporate learning is fraught with challenges.

What we will Explore Together:

Tomás Ramírez would like ELE to peer-review his team’s newly developed DEI Training Framework that is divided between Power Skills and DEI content building.

PURPOSE | On-boarding and Employee Experience

Modern Onboarding Ideation

Improving Employee Experience
Strategic Opportunity:

The present (and future) reality of work requires organizations to rethink traditional ways of onboarding new employees. The “what” of orientation likely will stay the same. For example, introducing employees to the Culture, Mission, Vision, and Values of the organization; sharing information about strategy, structure, goals, and initiatives; and acquainting the new employee to relationship-building resources and support available to help them be successful in their new role. The “how” is a different story. The “how” is more challenging, both in tactics and tools and in the impact on metrics such as new employee engagement

Discussion Points:

To help guide this discussion, we will be covering some of the following questions:

  • To what degree have the goals for your onboarding program changed since the declaration of the pandemic? If they have changed, how have they changed? If not, how might they need to change in the new reality?
  • What changes have you had to make to the “how” of your onboarding program?
  • What challenges have you experienced in adapting the “how” of your program?
  • What tactic, tool or process have you implemented successfully?
  • What measures are you looking at for the success of your onboarding program? Are you still using those measures?
  • What changes, if any, have you seen in your onboarding metrics? If you’ve had a significant change, how have you responded?

THE 2021 LEAD NOW! LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT TRENDS REPORT

Your Culture Changed During the Pandemic.

How Are Leaders Responding?
Strategic Opportunity:

As the workplace wrestles with remote work, social justice issues, mental health challenges, increased digitization, and political unrest, how does this impact the way we view and develop our leaders? We expect leaders to set the tone, paint the vision, and remove obstacles to allow work to get done. Identifying the latest leadership trends is critical to inform what expectations, skills, and mindsets leaders need today to rally their teams for the future.

What we will Explore Together:

To kick off this session, Daniel will share from his recent leadership development survey top ten result findings & what skills are critical in the next 18 months. As a group, we will explore together tools, research, and insights on changing the way we develop leaders post-COVID-19.

Building a Resilient Workforce

How to engage and upskill for impact in the face of the unknown
Strategic Opportunity:

Current circumstances in our country and the world thrusted organizations into the reality that the future of work is NOW. What does this mean for talent management leaders and the people in your organizations? There aren’t any playbooks or best practices for us to reference. This is a time for reinvention. What will it take to keep talent aligned with the business while addressing the health and well-being of every human being in the workplace yet to be defined?

Discussion Points:

In this session, we will focus our discussion on two questions:

  1. What does "ReTooling" mean in terms of new key competencies, practices and priorities for yourselves and other leaders.
  2. In the context of uncertainty, what talent management strategies do you recognize need to stop, start and continue?

Data-Driven Talent Development

Building Data-Driven Talent Strategies 101

Best Practices and SEC Reporting Requirements
Strategic Opportunity:

Talent leaders commomly ask themselves, “Am I making an impact on the business?”. The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) wants to know the answer to that question as well. Effective now, all US public companies are required to report the material value of their human capital. What does this mean for the L&D function

What we will Explore Together:

Building data-driven talent strategies should include basics such as:

  • What’s the ROI on the initiative?
  • How are companies (L&D Dashboard / KPI's) reporting today?
  • How will L&D measure and report human capital value going forward?

We will discuss all of these critical questions during this session for clear guidance on how to stay compliant with the SEC mandate.

The State of Skills 2021

Degreed's Latest Research
Strategic Opportunity:

Massive workforce shifts in 2020 have forced countless workers to refresh their current skills — and build new ones. If you’re wondering what skills are critical to you moving into 2021, it depends entirely on who you are, where you work, and what you do.

Which new skills, if any, would you like to learn?

We've Found:

Degreed has organized the following data by your country, industry, and job role to help you identify where skills are most at-risk of becoming obsolete. Our aim is to help workers, team managers, and business leaders focus their limited energy and investments on developing the most urgent skills.

Explore the Data:

Among the 5,000+ workers, team managers, and business leaders we surveyed, demand is strongest for technological skills. However, they’re also looking to develop their social and cognitive skills.

Degreed’s State of Skills 2021 Report is available as a PDF in Spanish, Portuguese, German, and French.

Why is Positivity Critical for Future Success?

A recent paradox has emerged as employee engagement has risen slightly but well-being has suffered a decline. As we transition from a COVID-19 environment to a post-COVID environment, well-being is playing a key role. We’ll discuss this perplexing challenge, seek to understand these divergent realities, and discuss the role of positive psychology and its relation to well-being.

Leadership Rewired

An Oshkosh Corporation Case Study​
Strategic Opportunity:

The human-centered era of leadership has arrived. In this ever-evolving era managers are challenged to adapt – and often rewire – how they lead their team. Learn from the experience of Oshkosh Corporation’s OD practitioners as they share ways in which their organizations are fostering this leadership evolution.

Learning Together:

In this session, we’ll focus on how Oshkosh Corporation designed a Leadership Development Workshop to grow leaders’ strategic thinking capabilities by providing the tools, techniques, and behavior patterns to help them:

  • Integrate coaching strategies with technology-based platforms able to scale a culture of continuous learning and feedback.
  • Tap a rich body of knowledge workers' peer coaching + feedback to help management scale knowledge retention & skill building.
  • Establish meaningful social learning connections and training strategies at scale.

GE Renewable Energy

Reimagining
Corporate Learning

Re-thinking LXPs and the learning organization in the context of Lean principles
Strategic Opportunity:

In this session, you’ll get the opportunity to explore the GE & UL approaches using Lean and dynamic work to foster individual learning as part of organizational learning & development.

What we will explore together:

Lean thinking as self-directed learning strategy which develops people reasoning by incorporating self-reflection. Self-reflection is a diagnostic on to itself. Reflection is “practice.” The Lean part of this equation is also a focus on eliminating waste in performance and execution of one’s skills that are deployed in the flow of work.

Learning organization is the capacity of an organization to reinvent its products/ services through the collective learning of its employees. They will acquire the personal learning mastery and along with the leaders, they have to identify learning opportunities, solve problems, share the solutions and make them accessible for reuse and product/ process improvements

Discussion Points:
  • We explore and have a conversation on the following questions:
    1. 💡 How can we design the learning organization without additional technology investment and in a “scrappy or agile” way?
    2. 💡 WWhat are the components of a learning organization that emphasize the Lean principles and behaviors?
    3. 💡 GE’s approach on integrating personal learning into organizational knowledge. A step-by-step process for comprehensive L&D with Lean mindset.
    4. 💡 UL’s approach to dynamic work design in coordination/ collaborative work hands-offs.
