Human Resource Executive Forum® Empowers HR Professionals to Adapt to "New Normal"

Unique Event at HR Week™ Helps Senior-Level Practitioners Navigate Today's Market Realities; Register by March 26 to Save $200.00

HORSHAM, PA--(Marketwire - February 2, 2010) - "We need a clear view of the new normal. Despite some talk, many people are not dealing with the new reality of the market at a fundamental level," said Dr. Jac Fitz-enz, one of 32 esteemed presenters at the Human Resource Executive Forum®, the newest part of the 8th Annual HR Week™. Taking place at the Hilton New York, April 12-14, 2010, the Forum provides an intimate venue for high-level HR professionals to exchange practices and insights in disciplines including: HR Leadership, HR Technology, Talent Management, Recruiting, Benefits, and Workforce Planning/Analytics. Plus, a new bonus session from the Cornell University Center for Advanced Human Resource Studies, "Becoming a Chief HR Officer: How to Get There and What You'll Need to Succeed," will kick off the Forum before Monday's Welcome Reception.

In "The New Face of Workforce Planning," Dr. Fitz-enz, founder and CEO of Human Capital Source, will help the senior executives in attendance synchronize their HR departments by creating a strategic human capital management model. Rather than patch over old problems with short-term solutions, attendees will gain a solid understanding of the "profoundly new market" and guidance to create a clear, winning strategy.

To help manage and execute the new technology trends necessary in today's marketplace, Jason Averbook, co-founder and CEO of Knowledge Infusion, will moderate a panel of experts in "How HR Technology Will Become Your Organization's Most Important Technology."

"We will be discussing how HR leaders can stay sane in a period of chaos as the worlds of people, technology and compliance collide with cost containment measures like we haven't seen in the past decade," said Averbook.

Across the seven sessions, attendees will hear from nationally recognized experts and HR executives from Aetna, BASF, Capital One, CIGNA, Coca-Cola, Comcast, Hewlett-Packard, Hilton Worldwide, IBM, Oracle and other elite organizations.

HR Week™ will also host an Expo offering innovative products and services for HR initiatives. The complete HR Week™ agenda is available, and registration is open for individuals and teams to attend this premier HR professional development experience.
