To ensure its reputation as an open and collaborative forum, the annual event is closed to vendors and consultants.

McCord’s book, Powerful: Building a Culture of Freedom and Responsibiltiy, will be the subject of her presentation at the i4cp 2018 Conference. McCord advocates practicing radical honesty in the workplace, saying good-bye to employees who don’t fit the company’s emerging needs, and motivating with challenging work, not promises, perks, and bonus plans. She argues that the old standbys of corporate HR―annual performance reviews, retention plans, employee empowerment and engagement programs―often end up being a colossal waste of time and resources. Her road-tested advice, offered with humor and irreverence, provides a different path for creating a culture of high performance and profitability.

The i4cp 2018 Conference is often ranked among the best HR events of the year due to its exclusive senior-level networking atmosphere and forward-looking presenters. Registration is now open – sign up by the February 2 early bird deadline to save $300.
