Will Rogers Theatre, Oklahoma City, OK
June 28th, 2018 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Our program title - OK2030  

A strategic plan to improve Oklahoma’s economy, quality of life, business climate, workforce and fiscal stability

The State Chamber of Oklahoma Research Foundation recently launched OK2030, a strategic vision plan to move Oklahoma to the top of key national rankings by the year 2030. Executive Director Dr. Jennifer Lepard details the goals, strategy, messaging and metrics behind the plan while highlighting the legislative victories achieved this session.  This workforce readiness initiative will provide immediate take-aways for the human resource professional on how to conduct a massive new idea from setting goals, developing the plan and getting started across departments within the company and beyond.

Learning Points for the HR professional:

  • Determine the goal setting process from surveys, interviews, steering committee and sub-committees
  • Examine strategic management considerations after conducting interviews of past and present “C-Suite” leaders
  • Develop understanding of individual differences and perception with regional forums across the state to gather input from the stakeholders
  • Create an accountability dashboard to keep the stakeholders, both internal and external,  up to date on progress made to develop the plan.
