August Breakfast

The Future of Work: The Future is Now

Presented by: Chary Krout, SPHR
SVP HR First tech federal credit union

We know that our organizations are only as great as our people. Attracting and retaining the best people is no longer enough; with the strengthening presence of AI, learning to flex our skills to accommodate a different kind of employee, their needs, and a changing workplace experience is critical to our teams.


Come with us on this journey to leverage process and tools to create experiential learning that serves our workforce today, and develops the teams of tomorrow. What you’ll learn includes:

  • Reframe recognition: How peer, crowd-sourced programs redefine employee experiences
  • Kill the performance review: Leading continuous 1:1 conversations to create shared accountability and shared success
  • Leveraging the right data: What predictive metrics can tell you – about today and the future


About the speaker

A native to the Pacific Northwest, Vice President of Human Resources and SPHR, Chary Krout has been helping members and employees reach their dreams for more than 20 years at First Tech Federal Credit Union. Beginning her career at First Tech as a teller in 1995, Chary worked her way through the organization in various roles and was appointed Vice President of HR in 2014. Her passion for constantly improving the employee experience in her many roles at First Tech has resulted in measurable differences across the 1,400 employee organization in the areas of compensation, benefits, recruiting and performance management. Many of these enhancements have come from analyzing and using data to discuss areas of improvement in leaders’ teams through Leadership Success Reports and gauging employee satisfaction via an annual Employee Engagement survey. Under Chary’s guidance, the use of data has also significantly improved First Tech’s wellbeing program, WiredWell, by utilization of a scorecard to target benefit use of employees.  A self-proclaimed baseball mom, Chary hopes to one day see her two boys graduate from college and finish building a wood cabin with her husband in southwest Washington. When she’s not working to enhance the employee experience or watching her son’s baseball games, Chary serves on a board of trustees for a scholarship fund at Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon.
