8:30–9:30 a.m. Welcome & The Employee Experience: Your Competitive Advantage: Julia Johnson, Wipfli LLP
Customer experience. Fan experience. Employee experience. Everywhere you turn there is an emphasis on the “experience”. The employee experience is more important today than it was yesterday, and it will be more important tomorrow than it is today. In this session, a discussion with like-minded professionals will occur to explore how we can structure the growth, development, opportunities, and work environment for employees in order to attract, motivate, and retain in this ongoing competitive talent landscape. We will touch upon the impact that COVID and the labor market continues to have on our banks and how it is impacting our structure, culture, performance management processes, compensation, and related topics.

11:00–12:00 p.m. How “Smart” Are Your Emotions?: Jackie Rolow, SHAZAM
How often have you been told to check your emotions at the door? There’s a growing field of research on the value and importance of emotional intelligence — an individual’s ability to use information to guide thinking and behavior to adapt to different environments or achieve one’s goals. Understanding and using emotions correctly can make you a better communicator and, ultimately, more effective in your job. Learn strategies to increase your emotional intelligence and use that knowledge for better decision-making. With a greater understanding of your emotions, you’ll experience positive impacts in both your professional and personal life.

It’s no secret that today’s workforce is stressed out and stretched thin, while employee engagement, retention, and satisfaction are at an all-time low. But checking out isn’t the answer – life is just too short to spend each day doing something that does not bring you joy.
In the middle of all difficulty lies opportunity. It’s time to recharge, re-energize, and Seize Your Opportunity. In this program, audiences will discover effective ways to bounce back from daily challenges and stress in a constructive manner that promotes positive growth, empowering them to break free from survival mode and rediscover the joy in their work.
