HR Policy Charts Course for the Future at Washington Policy Conference

September 14, 2018

HR Policy Chair Pam Kimmet, Chief Human Resources Officer at Cardinal Health, launched a groundbreaking Washington Policy Conference saying, “Washington never ceases to change, presenting us with new challenges and—certainly in recent times—providing great theater.”

“We are uniquely positioned to play a key role here,” Kimmet continued.  “It is our responsibility to bring new thinking to what the right practices should be for our respective companies in a way that will be compelling to the talent we need.”  (Note: It was announced this week that Pam Kimmet will become CHRO at Manulife Financial Corporation beginning October 1.  Ola Snow will succeed her as CHRO at Cardinal Health).

Fear author Bob Woodward, on his first book stop, headlined the slate of premier political commentators and policymakers analyzing Washington’s challenges, including Sophia Nelson, Jonah Goldberg, Ruth Marcus, and Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA).

One giant leap for the Association:  HR leaders, led by HP Chief Human Resources Officer Tracy Keogh, took an in-depth look at the future of work, including a trailblazing initiative headed by Stephanie Lundquist, Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer of Target Corporation, that capitalizes on the Association’s ability to collectively find solutions and add value for members.

HR Policy staff facilitated a membership-wide conversation taking a deeper look at the policies confronting senior HR executives.
