Pssst! Can you keep a secret? IAMPHENOM is NOT a normal conference. Will we talk about HR? Yep. Will we cover technology? Definitely. But we promise to do it in a way that excites and inspires. If you’re looking to cat-nap your way through one yawn-worthy session after another, this conference isn’t for you—it’s for the 1,000 other attendees looking to network, up their industry game, and feel good doing it.
From the topic of mindfulness to all aspects of talent experience management, be prepared to have your mind blown by HR visionaries, technology gurus, and expert storytellers. Actionable sessions featuring product training and innovation will solidify your understanding of the current talent landscape and prepare you for the future.
While our list of special guest appearances is still under lock and key, we guarantee they’ll live up to last year’s surprises, which included local celebrity boxer Bernard Hopkins and the Mummers!
What better way to get hyped up for what’s to come than by recapping last year’s highlights?
1. Opening Keynote with Mahe Bayireddi
Mahe Bayireddi, CEO and Co-Founder of Phenom People
To kick off the conference, Phenom’s CEO and co-founder Mahe Bayireddi welcomed attendees and introduced a new approach to managing talent today. Setting the tone for the rest of IAMPHENOM, Mahe discussed Talent Experience Management as the new direction for both the company and the HR industry.
2. HR’s New Strategic Role in the World of Work
Josh Bersin, Analyst and Founder of joshbersin.com
Talent is the #1 thing on the minds of CEOs. They’re hiring people as fast as they can to keep up with market demand, but productivity is slowing. To fill that gap, people are working more hours, getting less sleep, becoming more stressed—and employers are being asked to take responsibility for it. As hard as it is to work right now, the only way companies will be able to grow is through productivity and engagement.
3. Southwest Airlines Case Study: Making Adoption Stick
Greg Muccio, Director of Talent Acquisition at Southwest Airlines
Investing in a new Talent Acquisition tool can be an exciting step—but driving adoption among your team is a key piece to the implementation puzzle. Greg shared the journey Southwest Airlines took to get their HR teams aligned and using the Phenom platform to its fullest potential.
4. Managing Life's Choices for Stronger Experiences
Jess Elmquist, CLO & EVP HR, Life Time
The talent economy is in a constant state of change. Companies will win when they change their narrative while staying flexible in the way they approach the work of convincing today's talent that their company is the place to be, grow, and make an impact. How we think as talent leaders, act as talent nurturers, and inspire as mentors and coaches will make the difference long-term in who chooses to work for our companies and why they decide to stay.
