The MAPI Human Resources Council provides a vendor-free forum for senior human resources leaders to share best practices on issues such as employer healthcare strategies, performance management, employee development programs, and executive compensation. Our semiannual meetings focus on interactive dialogue amongst peers from leading manufacturers and an in-depth roundtable discussion addressing the front-burner issues of interest to human resources executives.
WHO should attend?
Attendees are typically members of the MAPI Human Resources Council. If you are a member and can't attend, please contact us about having a senior member of your team attend in your place. If you're not a member but are interested in attending, please let us know. All attendees must work for a manufacturing company or industrial distributor.
What makes MAPI council meetings different?
Roundtable discussions: Rich dialogue on the issues you care about, moderated to keep discussions focused on the "so what."
Peer to peer sharing: There are no talking heads. Almost of the content is delivered by your peers at global manufacturers, sharing experiences candidly.
No death by PowerPoint: While our presenters deliver outstanding content, we schedule ample time for interaction and Q&A, so that you can dig deep on the topics that matter.
No pitches: Our council meetings aren't sponsored, and there are no sales pitches. None.
Balance of strategy and utility: Our council meetings deliver great content around strategy and peer-tested frameworks for putting those strategies into action.

Two Council members will describe how their companies are viewing and evolving the effectiveness and efficiency of their performance management type practices. One of these members will also provide an update from the prior spring meeting on his company’s initiative eliminating the formal performance review process.
In recent years many manufacturing companies have implemented new human resources information systems or updated their current systems. Two Council members will share their HRIS implementation/update experiences.
Cutting-edge performance management includes ratingless appraisal, ongoing feedback, and crowdsourced performance feedback. Gerry Ledford from the Center for Effective Organizations at USC has led multiple research studies on these practices in the past 18 months, including a study of 244 users of cutting-edge practices that was conducted with support from WorldatWork and a quasi-experiment in an insurance company that adopted ratingless appraisal. Gerry will summarize key lessons from this new research, looking at their effectiveness, key factors that determine success or failure, and the role of CHROs and other HR professionals in the adoption of these practices.
