Atomic Habits: How to Get 1% Better Every Day

How can you see dramatic improvement in your personal and professional life? As a natural impulse, many people attempt to take big steps toward self-improvement. However, taking big steps often results in failure or only temporary gains. You rarely see the permanent results you want. The key to successful change is setting small habits. In this entertaining talk, James Clear focuses on the science of small habits, how they work, and how their effects compound and multiply over time.

Fostering Culture in a Hybrid Workplace

One thing is certain: We are never going back to the old way of working. And we’re long past the era of relying on Zoom happy hours and social Slack channels to make employees feel more connected and engaged. Innovative People leaders are developing new functions, creative programs and policies, and measures to ensure that culture thrives in the modern workplace. Here, a panel of leaders explains how you can build an engaged hybrid culture at your company.

Taking a People-First Approach to Compensation

Historically, running a compensation cycle has been a tedious and dreaded manual process. Lattice Compensation helps HR teams easily manage every part of the compensation review process in a secure, centralized hub — so you can put spreadsheet stress in the past. In this session, we’ll talk about the new Lattice Compensation product and hear from customers about how they’ve streamlined their compensation process by connecting Performance and Compensation with Lattice.

How HR Pros Can Respond to and Manage Burnout

In many ways, HR has been an unacknowledged frontline worker during the pandemic — and according to a recent BambooHR survey, 87% of HR pros still report facing their own mental, physical, and financial well-being challenges on top of continuing to help employees through the same thing. This panel, led by Cassie Whitlock, Director of HR at BambooHR, will discuss strategies for HR leaders to manage burnout and focus on their own well-being.

Building a Transparent and Equitable Company

Communication and equity may be the keys to getting hybrid work right. For starters, remote workers expect the same degree of transparency and access as their onsite peers. They also deserve an equal opportunity for growth — both in their career trajectory and compensation. This panel will discuss how hybrid and remote-first companies can adapt their talent and total rewards strategies to foster a more transparent, equitable workplace.

The New Era of (Re)gathering

Companies and organizations are looking back at a year of canceled in-person retreats, holiday parties, and Bring Your Kid To Work Days, among many others. As we enter the “next normal,” how do we re-gather? How do we ease the apprehension? How can companies develop a hybrid meeting and event culture that equally engages those back in the office, and those employees permanently working from home? How can we build connection among colleagues that have never met in real life? Author Priya Parker answers important questions on how to rethink and rebuild a post-pandemic approach to gathering.

How to Create an Anti-Racist Workplace

When James White was CEO of Jamba Juice, he intentionally transformed and diversified their corporate culture. In turn, the company’s market cap jumped 500 percent. In a special video episode of the Lattice All Hands podcast, James says this is not a coincidence. It’s a result of what he and his daughter, Krista White, call anti-racist leadership. James and Krista co-wrote the book Anti-Racist Leadership: How to Transform Corporate Culture in a Race-Conscious World, which they describe as “a practical field guide for CEOs and other leaders who are looking to transform their company culture to suit the needs of a new decade.”
