RESOLVE Was Incredible

The Last Few Years Have Tested Your Resilience.
You've Survived & Thrived. Now What?

The pandemic has shown itself to be a pivot point for the world of work. You’ve emerged a stronger leader than ever before. But, now, it’s time for the next challenge: Evolving your total rewards strategy to win in an increasingly competitive and quickly changing talent market.

First Person Advisors hosted super-human resources leaders on April 28 at the NCAA Hall of Champions for the return of the RESOLVE conference presented by Paylocity and SIHO.

National Speakers. Inspiring Talks. Real-Life Takeaways.

The RESOLVE 2022 lineup was stacked. Plain and simple. 

Behind the Scenes of the NFL’s Largest Mental Health Initiative

Kalen Jackson

Vice Chair & Owner of Indianapolis Colts

Kalen Jackson is involved in multiple functions of the Colts organization, including coordinating the team and Irsay family’s philanthropic and community efforts. One of those initiatives is Kicking The Stigma, which the Irsays launched in 2020 to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health disorders and raise money for treatment, research and other mental health resources in Indiana and beyond.

In an in-depth conversation with Mark Minner, she discussed why the Irsays launched Kicking The Stigma, what they’ve learned over the past 18 months, and what you and others can do to join this important cause.

Unleashing Your Company’s Potential Through Intentional Development

Jason Riley, GE Healthcare

Head of Global Talent Strategy

Does your business have an intentional development strategy to compete for talent?

Jason Riley’s affinity for enabling success through the lens of transformational talent strategies is a common thread throughout his professional achievements.

During the Great Resignation, organizations are constantly asked to do more with less. Talented employees are sought after more than ever before. Learn from Jason’s experience and story. Make “the how” as clear as “the what.”
