Monthly HR Leadership Events at UC San Diego Extension

Join us for a series of free and distinctive monthly events to connect and engage with San Diego’s dynamic HR community.

Each event is unique. Each month, we announce a new event and open the registration for that particular event. While COVID-19 keeps us from meeting in-person, online events are being offered.  Once we can resume our group gatherings, events will be held at UCSD Extension’s off campus building or will be hosted by companies throughout San Diego known for their innovation and success.

HR leaders and experts in their fields openly present their best practices, visionary ideas, practical solutions to challenges, and insight-provoking learning lessons. Discussions are candid and stimulating. Participants acquire key takeaways that can be immediately applied to their daily work and careers.

While there is no cost to attend, these events are limited to guests who are HR VPs, Directors, Managers, developing HR professionals aspiring to be in corporate HR roles, and participants/alumni of the UCSD HR Certificate and Leadership Programs.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions we have moved our events online for the fall and winter quarters. For the month of December our topic will be:

Optimum Compensation and Performance in 2021

While the markets and economy are more stable than they were in the early Spring, significant uncertainty remains, making compensation and performance practices more difficult. Company executives will need to wrestle with how to best balance employee engagement, motivation, retention and alignment with external stakeholders’ expectations.

  • What compensation issues are companies facing today that can impact them in the future
  • What mistakes are companies making and how to avoid them
  • How to communicate with employees about compensation during this difficult time
  • Industry specific examples
