    FVSHRM welcomes Todd Kuckkahn to speak on the topic of talent attraction and development. This presentation will provide the opportunity for you to reflect on your organization's strategies and how they can be improved to have a positive impact on the talent and organizational strategy of your company.

    Culture eats vision. That must be the cornerstone of any talent attraction and retention strategy. Todd is on a mission to revolutionize corporate culture and leadership with his 5-step road map for a culture shift. Many look at talent attraction and talent retention as two separate strategies. They are actually two of the components of a 5-stage talent engagement cycle. It is a process beginning with the road map through recruiting your “alumni.” Todd will help you put these together and you will walk away with opportunities to impact talent at your workplace.

    FVSHRM welcomes Bob Simandl, from von Briesen & Roper, s.c., to address the topic of compliance within the HR function. He will discuss the shift in fiduciary responsibility of HR professionals and how they can protect their organizations from legal exposure.

    HR professionals have not been generally viewed as “fiduciaries” in their corporate role.  But times are changing.  In an era of highly litigious employees, and plaintiff counsel preferring “class actions” over individual plaintiff claims for litigation, the role of the HR professional is at the center of discussion.  Fiduciary liability is much broader than the ERISA based definition and requires consideration of the role from a practical side.  This has resulted in the need to reevaluate the positional responsibilities of the HR professional and taking action to safe-guard the HR professional from claims that can arise in the regular conduct of the job.

    Bob will discuss the steps to be taken now to address legal exposure in:

    1. Administrative responsibilities for employee benefit plans (pension and health and welfare)

    2. HIPAA considerations in the operation of group health plan offerings

    3. Employee confidentiality and the handling of “personal information”

    4. Necessary safe-guards related to the sharing of Company information with “peers” and others

    5. Wage and Hour compliance issues and obligations

    6. GINA pitfalls

    7. Advising employees with known “secrets” of the business

    Bob will discuss the legal concerns and considerations as well as steps that can be taken now to minimize the practical and operational vulnerabilities.  Questions are welcome in advance of the program for inclusion – which should be forwarded to rsimandl@vonbriesen.com.
