Cox Enterprises, Tyson Foods and Infomentis executives to serve as directors at IHRIM’s Innovation Forum in Atlanta

Share Article

IHRIM's Innovation Forum is an interactive event that teaches how to create HR value from the use of technology; how to calculate it, prove it and sell it to executive management. It's more than ROI -- it's about leveraging technology and knowledge to the bottom-line benefit of the organization.

5 at the Delta Air Lines Training Center in Atlanta, Georgia. Unique in its structure, the forum’s main objective is to have the attendees actively participate by working on a team. Each team has as its mission to create a business case presentation that addresses and provides a strategy to a fictitious organization’s C-Level Board of Directors that will show strategic and tactical initiatives to help solve the business problem or issue.

This year’s C-level participants include Gregory B. Morrison, vice president and CIO for Cox Enterprises, Inc., Kenneth J. Kimbro, senior vice president, CHRO for Tyson Foods, Inc., and Wendy Reed, founder & CEO of Infomentis. The Innovation Forum’s subject matter experts (SMEs) include Rich Berger, vice president of HR Process and Architecture for ACS Global HR Solutions, Outsourcing SME; Jane Paradiso, National Leader of Watson Wyatt’s Workforce Planning Practice, Talent Management SME; and James Hatch, partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers/Saratoga Institute, HR Metrics SME.

The value to attendees includes the opportunity to:
·    Work on a business problem that could be similar to one they are really facing,
·    Gain expertise from other attendees and subject matter experts on current topics,
·    Hear from actual C-Level executives what they expect from HR Technology and a Business Case presentation, ROI etc., and
·    Gain exposure and ideas from team members and all other attendees faced with similar problems and business issues and drivers.

According to one of last year’s attendees from GlaxoSmithKline, “This was an outstanding experience for me – one of the best, most practical developmental opportunities I’ve attended. The real-life scenarios, access to industry experts and access to C-level executives was great. First time I’ve been able to take on such broad issues.”

To ensure optimum participation and the ultimate learning experience, enrollment to the Innovation Forum is limited. Interested HR professionals can find out more at or at
