Lunch Breakout | Outsourced Accounting Departments: No Longer “Alternative”

Location/Time: | 12:00 - 1:20 PM | Salon B

Presenter: Bill Gerber, AccountingDepartment.com, Co-Founder, Vistage Sponsor

Now is the time to stop thinking of outsourced accounting departments as an “alternative option”. As mainstream as internal departments, outsourced accounting departments are so much more than their historical stereotypes—and businesses that are moving to this model routinely find they are more competitive, strategic and agile. Learn why outsourcing isn’t “alternative” and how your company can leverage this knowledge to stay ahead of the competition.

 

Lunch Breakout | The Path to Talent Planning Success

Location/Time: | 12:00 - 1:20 PM | Salon A

Presenter: Kurt Wilkin, CEO, HireBetter

You have probably spent countless hours developing your business strategy and detailed financial plan. But do you have the right people in the right seats to make it all happen? And how do you determine whether you do or you don’t? HireBetter CEO Kurt Wilkin maps out a path for turning talent planning strategy into actionable reality using real-world case studies from the front lines of business. You'll leave the session knowing how to get started treating talent as a strategic lever for business success.
 

Lunch Breakout | Why you're losing great employees: Decoding the engagement challenge

Location/Time: | 12:00 - 1:20 PM

Presenter: Rich Sweeney, Founder and CEO of R.H. Sweeney Associates and Partner of The Predictive Index

When engagement is strong, a company will flourish. But the costs of getting engagement wrong are extreme. Disengaged managers alone account for somewhere between $77 billion and $96 billion in costs annually and it is estimated that $11 billion is lost annually due to employee turnover which is often the direct result of low engagement. And around every corner is another company who has a survey and a promise to make it all better. With so much help available, why is it such a challenge?
