HREA January Symposium

Jan 24, 2018 — HREA Spent the morning at FS Investments hosted by Ania Mikson, CHRO at FS and co-facilitated by fellow HREA Member, Lysa Dahlin, SVP, HR. We started with breakfast and networking, as well as an opportunity to briefly visit the modern art collection at FS ( and learned how FS integrates access to art and art education to help inspire its culture of innovation. We than begin the Roundtable Session with the opportunity to hear from Lara Rhame, Chief US Economist at FS Investments, who shared information and thoughts on the current state of the economy and critical areas of focus for business leaders such as the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and whether accelerating growth could have negative consequences we all should be thinking about. This first event in 2018 was a great way to engage with HR colleagues and problem-solve in real time. Topics covered included: Change Management - What are current practices (formal and informal) now that change is a constant and daily part of our businesses? Sexual Harassment - What operational and policy challenges do we have (or expect) in the wake of #Metoo and #TimesUp movements? Technology/Gamification - How are we using it to recruit college and millennial workers? Retention - What are we doing to retain early career professionals who are in high demand?

From Our Members

“As a Human Resource professional, you are invited to a number of seminars and networking events. The challenge is finding those that provide the best opportunity for professional development, exchanging best practices and engaging in high quality networking with peers. After attending the Human Resources Executive Alliance event, I can tell you that they have it mastered. Having the opportunity to hear first hand perspectives from the CEO of one the largest healthcare systems in the region was priceless. The HREA is the premiere networking alliance for Human Resources."
