Laurie Bassi and Samuel Culbert to Present at the i4cp 2013 Annual Conference

i4cp is pleased to announce that Dr. Laurie Bassi, chair of the SHRM metrics standards committee and CEO of McBassi & Company, and Samuel Culbert, Professor at UCLA Anderson School of Management, will speak at the i4cp 2013 Annual Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona, March 18 - 21, 2013.

The 2013 conference will seek to challenge common assumptions about human capital and offer insight into the next practices that drive high performance. Each year the i4cp conference is consistently described as "the best human capital event of the year," highlighted by its vendor- and consultant-free networking atmosphere and senior-level, strategically focused sessions.

Reporting on Human Capital to Investors

There is a big push underway, led by SHRM, to create a broad set of "HR standards." Most controversial among these has been the standard for reporting on human capital to investors. Dr. Bassi, who has led this component of the SHRM initiative, will provide an update on the current state of the emerging standard, along with the controversy that has surrounded it.

Putting a Halt to Bad Management

Professor Culbert has developed a blunt yet sensitive way of framing situations that allows for all parties to engage in open, non-judgmental discussions. Author of Get Rid of the Performance Review, he believes that only by laying bare ALL the forces that drive people’s opinions and actions – including subjective, self-interested and political biases – is it possible to have an explicit, honest, yet matter-of-fact conversation. He has spent a career perfecting the skills and style that elicit such straight-talk.

Other notable speakers

Dr. Bassi and Professor Culbert will join previously announced speakers David Rock, the Founder and CEO of the NeuroLeadership Group, and CHRO of FedEx Express, Shannon Brown. Additional speakers will be announced soon.
