Panel of Senior Executives to Discuss Winning Strategies to Drive HR Leadership in Current Economy; Register by January 29 to Save $300.00

HORSHAM, PA--(Marketwire - December 1, 2009) - Human Resource Executive® Conferences today announced the details of the all-new Human Resource Executive Forum®, part of the 8th Annual HR Week™ taking place at the Hilton New York, April 12 - 14, 2010. Produced by Human Resource Executive® magazine, the Forum provides an intimate venue for high-level HR professionals to exchange practices and ideas. It will feature open and insightful discussions on HR Leadership, HR Technology, Talent Management, Recruiting, Benefits, and Workforce Planning/Analytics.

World-class HR thought leaders have accepted invitations to present and moderate the seven advanced-level sessions, including Patrick Wright, the William J. Conaty GE Professor of Strategic Human Resources at Cornell University's ILR School. Doing what he does best, Wright will lead discussion among a panel of experts in the HR Leadership segment, "Human Resource Executive® Senior Executive Roundtable: HR Imperatives for 2010 and Beyond."

"The past 18 months have required incredible adaptability from firms in terms of their employee base, strategies and access to all forms of capital. HR has played a critical role in helping firms survive the downturn and implement new business models," said Wright. "The chief human resource officers in this leadership session will provide the insights they gained over these tumultuous months and discuss the priorities that they now face," said Wright.

The seven discussion panels are comprised of nationally known experts and executives from IBM, Aetna, Comcast, Gap, CIGNA, Tyco, Hilton, Oracle, Hewlett-Packard, Yale University and other elite organizations. From the unmatched presenters to the comfortable setting, this event is a rare opportunity to take part in a conference that is focused exclusively on helping HR professionals navigate through today's most pressing business issues. Furthermore, attendees will have many chances to speak face-to-face with colleagues during networking receptions and lunches.

HR Week™ will also showcase the expanded HR & EEO in the Federal WorkplaceTM Conference and the HR Week™ Expo, packed with leading vendors offering innovative advice, products and services to help HR departments navigate post-recession initiatives.
