Webinar Information

The Human Resources WebSeries offers monthly webinars with esteemed Cornell University faculty. New webinars are being scheduled often in order to bring you the latest in industry news, trends, and best practices.

Join our live panel discussion for women leaders as we explore how to bring balance and equity to workplace power dynamics. The panel will feature three thought leaders from the SC Johnson College of Business at Cornell University.

We’ll examine individual and organizational strategies for overcoming gender bias and stereotypes at work and how women can succeed in leadership positions. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask our panelists questions directly throughout the discussion.

Your Human Resources subscription will include access to these recordings of past webinars.

Workers in our growing gig economy are stuck in a regulatory grey area where they fit neither the standard legal definition of employee nor that of independent contractor.

There recent interest in differentiating a new, third category of employment: the independent worker. The idea, according to a 2015 discussion paper by The Hamilton Project, is to create an independent worker status that’s neutral compared to employee status—offering gig workers many of the same protections and benefits, while allowing intermediaries to pool workers to lower the costs of purchasing or providing insurance or other benefits without risking the relationship turning into that of employer/employee.

Join eCornell on September 18 12PM EST for a live online roundtable discussion on the future of the independent worker with Seth Harris, former Deputy Secretary for the U.S. Department of Labor alongside faculty colleagues from Cornell’s ILR School, professors Susanne Bruyère and Stephanie Thomas.

Let’s work together to help define the brave new world of independent work.

Servant Leadership is fast-becoming a prominent leadership style, and for good reason: It tends to increase trust and collaboration among team members, helps to build coalitions and community, and promotes ethical business practices.

While many leaders use the power of their position to direct and control employees, the Servant Leader listens; her focus is on understanding employees to develop and support them. Servant leaders flip the traditional relationship between the employee and the leader, fostering a strong service culture by empowering and involving workers.

Join this live interactive discussion, where we’ll discuss how servant leadership can transform your organization to one that is service-centered and culturally inclusive. This event is ideal for both the aspiring and experienced leader.

In our daily lives, we’ve become used to shaping our own experiences using technology (apps), new business models (Uber) and through feedback (Yelp). Just as consumers have more opportunities than ever before to shape and influence their experiences and interactions with the products and services they buy, employees increasingly expect this same type of experience in the workplace.

In this webcast, Chris Collins, Director of Cornell’s Center for Advanced Human Resources Studies (CAHRS) will discuss how these forces are impacting employees’ expectations and how companies are starting to rethink how to engage core employee populations through the use of technology, increased employee involvement through the use of design thinking, and reshaping the employee experience through new workplace designs. Professor Collins will also talk about the implications of these new activities for the HR function and HR leaders.
