Governor JB Pritzker on Thinking Big: The Accomplishments of His First Days in Office, and His Even Greater Plans for Illinois Families and Businesses

jbpritzkerheadshot.jpg

Governor Pritzker promised to think big for Illinois on the campaign trail--and he’s set out to do just that since his inauguration. From passing the minimum wage increase to plans to improve the state’s roads and bridges, the governor’s goals are aggressive. Earlier this month, Pritzker shared with the State-Journal Register that he’s “excited about the fact that we have so much energy and enthusiasm for accomplishing a lot in this first legislative session.” He’s made it clear from his first few months in office that he plans to waste no time making his vision a reality. 

Join The Executives’ Club of Chicago on Wednesday, June 19th where Pritzker will share all that he has accomplished in his first months as governor, as well as outline his bold vision to lift up working families. The governor will also speak to his own career as a businessman and the ways that vast experience informs his work as governor to support Illinois businesses, create jobs, and grow the economy statewide.

Kohl’s CEO Michelle Gass on Leveraging the Strengths of Your Brand in Times of Change

Michelle Gass
CEO
Kohl’s

According to the U.S. Commerce Department, ecommerce sales reached a new milestone in February, surpassing general merchandise retailer sales for the first time ever. With the rise of online shopping, traditional retailers are in unknown territory: how does a company innovate without losing what customers, and employees, love about the brand? Addressing this issue through technology innovations and strategic alliances with unexpected partners, Kohl’s CEO Michelle Gass is positioning the Wisconsin-based retailer to separate itself as a stand out in a challenging industry.

On June 5th, Kohl’s CEO Michelle Gass joins The Executives’ Club to discuss how companies can innovate while remaining true to their brand DNA. After more than 16 years with Starbucks, Gass joined Kohl’s as Chief Merchandising and Customer Officer, where she played a key role in the company’s strategic transformation, including aggressively moving into Active and Wellness, accelerating digital growth and strengthening Kohl’s position as a leader in loyalty. She was appointed CEO in May of 2018, and is one of only 24 Fortune 500 female CEOs. Join us as Gass discusses how companies can navigate a changing business landscape while remaining loyal to their core strengths and historic values.

Wired to Work; What Neuroscience Can Teach Us About Total Rewards

digangi.png

Presenter
Dr. Julia DiGangi
Founder
NeuroHealth Partners 

As the future of work grows increasingly complex, organizations are challenged to develop a total rewards program that engages employees in meaningful ways. Subsequently, there have been many efforts undertaken around issues of pay fairness, transparency, social recognition and employee wellness. However, many of these initiatives fall short because they fail to consider the most fundamental piece of the equation: the human brain. Why people are attracted to their jobs, how long they stay and when they leave are, most essentially, questions of human behavior. This program will focus on what science can tell us about our “wiring” and how these factors affect workplace behaviors such as motivation, performance and relationships. It will provide ready-to-use insights to help industry leaders examine their organization’s goals in the context of what we know about the brain and how it affects performance at work.

Global Leadership Series: Merging Profits and Social Responsibility

Copy of Copy of Tales from the Top.png

Date: Wednesday, April 3, 2019 
Registration and Networking: 11:15 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Program: 12:00 p.m. – 1:15 p.m.
Location: The Westin Chicago River North, 320 N Dearborn St., Chicago, IL 60654
Speaker: Arne Sorenson, President and Chief Executive Officer, Marriott International, Inc.
Moderator: Connie L. Lindsey, Executive Vice President and Head of Corporate Social Responsibility and Global Diversity & Inclusion, Northern Trust

In 2018, Fortune 500 companies generated $12.8 trillion in revenue. That’s a sum greater than the GDP of many developed countries, only behind the 2018 GDP of the US and China. At the same time, the latest data from the Edelman Trust Barometer shows that global consumers are expecting business to lead on social issues. Can a company be seen as more than its profits?

Whether driven by conscience or force of consumer expectations, corporations are attempting to take their civic responsibility seriously. But what will the next generation of corporate social responsibility look like?

Join us April 3rd for a conversation with Arne Sorenson, CEO of Marriott International, the world's largest hospitality chain, on the initiatives Marriott is taking to broaden its commitment to corporate social responsibility. From training employees to recognize signs of human trafficking, to installing panic buttons in its hotels to increase safety, to eliminating plastic straws at its restaurants, Marriott is continuously working to incorporate social responsibility into every aspect of the company’s business strategy.
