Patty McCord, the former chief talent officer for Netflix and cocreator of the “Netflix Culture Deck,” which Sheryl Sandberg has called perhaps “the most important document ever to come out of Silicon Valley,” will deliver the keynote address at HR Comply 2018 and Workforce L&D 2018 on November 15, 2018, at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Given today’s #MeToo and #TimesUp era, Ms. McCord’s insights could not come at a better time.

HR Comply (formerly BLR’s Advanced Employment Issues Symposium, or AEIS) provides important legal and regulatory updates and proven best practices to navigate labor and employment law and human capital management challenges. The curriculum is designed for HR professionals, executives, and in-house counsel.

Workforce L&D focuses on how to build a superior professional development program that supports business growth and workforce retention. The curriculum is designed for learning and for HR professionals and employers that understand the critical business importance of talent development.

These professional communities will converge on Las Vegas on November 15 to hear McCord’s innovative thoughts on how businesses should be run during her hour-long keynote address, The Time for a Culture Shift Is Now: How to Fix a Broken Culture and Inspire Teams to Achieve Greatness. She’ll share insights from her new book (published January 2018), Powerful: Building a Culture of Freedom and Responsibility—which The Washington Post named one of the top 11 leadership books to read in 2018—on why most companies fail at hiring, motivating, and creating exceptional teams.

McCord, who is regularly interviewed by publications such as Harvard Business Review, NPR, Fast Company, and The Wall Street Journal, brings a wealth of knowledge based on her 14 years with Netflix, where she was continuously exploring new ways to work. Her philosophy on talent development and workplace culture are revolutionary, and she will arm conference attendees with actionable strategies for shifting workplace culture to keep up with changing business needs and for motivating and inspiring the workforce.

“Given today’s #MeToo and #TimesUp era, Ms. McCord’s insights could not come at a better time. She’ll touch on ways to identify and work toward fixing a broken culture that could be contributing to negative stereotypes or inequitable practices that can damage a company’s reputation and its people if not put in check,” said Cathy Gray, BLR® senior managing editor, HR and Compensation.
