Securities lending best practice and meeting the expectations of the 2020 UK Stewardship Code
The 2020 version of the UK Stewardship Code sets high expectations for how investors, and those that support them, invest and manage money on behalf of UK savers and pensioners, and how this leads to sustainable benefits for the economy, the environment and society.

This session will explore what best practice securities lending programme oversight looks like and how signatories to the Code can enhance their Code reporting to satisfy the raised expectations of the FRC.

New research by leading HR & Payroll provider, SD Worx, reveals that nearly half of European companies believe that COVID-19 will have a lasting impact on their businesses, and that we will have to radically change the way they work.

· How HR can deliver personalised employee experiences
· How HR leaders can increase digital maturity

Sarah Ballantyne - Dalriada TrusteesRecorded: Nov 11 202060 mins
“TPR has been encouraging trustees to take formal, external covenant advice now for more than 10 years, however this should not be just be a triennial valuation exercise, ongoing monitoring of the financial position and prospects of a pension scheme’s employer are key. Many Trustee Boards have used the uncertainties caused by the Covid-19 to request further and more regular financial information from their employer, whether easements on Deficit Repair Contributions were requested or not. This sharing of information should be continued and used to monitor and prepare for any reduction in covenant strength. In the last few weeks we have seen Covid-19 restrictions increase, with businesses facing cliff edges in government support and an undetermined outcome for Brexit there is the expectation of a sharp rise in corporate restructurings. Where there’s a threat of insolvency for the employer, trustees need to ensure that they have plans to run the scheme on a stand alone basis. By talking through a number of case studies where Dalriada has been Trustee, Sarah will demonstrate that preparation and getting the right advice can be key to getting a solution for members.”

So much time is spent on culture and the front end of the employee life cycle. We focus on Onboarding, Learning and Development, Diversity and Inclusion, etc. but how does your organization handle the end of the employee life cycle? When you have bad off boarding and don't communicate with your team it leaves room for stories and rumors. Not only does it create fear but it also makes your team wonder if they're safe. Coming up with an off boarding plan that suits your organization is just as important as the onboarding process.
Remember people matter just as much at the end of their tenure as the beginning no matter the reason for their departure. So I'll ask - How do you bury your dead?
Three specific Learning Objectives achieved by attending the session:

Jeanne Schad, talent solutions & strategy practice leader, Randstad RiseSmartRecorded: Nov 5 202039 mins
Many organizations know that letting go of people has downstream consequences to employer brand, employee morale and productivity, innovation and the ability to be agile and competitive once the economy recovers. Yet, with the magnitude and length of the current pandemic-induced recession unknown, many organizations may feel they have no choice but to lay off a percentage of their workforce. Rapid redeployment is a tool that employers can add to their repertoire – one that can actually be less expensive than outplacement, allow companies to retain tribal knowledge, and enhance agility and competitiveness, especially once the economy rebounds.
Join Randstad RiseSmart’s Jeanne Schad, talent solutions & strategy practice leader, as she explores the value of rapid redeployment as an important option for employers to consider as part of their workforce toolkit.
- how companies are changing their approach to layoffs
- how rapid redeployment can reduce company costs
- why current internal redeployment initiatives may fall short for today’s needs
- the tools and resources needed to successfully redeploy employees
- why now is the right time to promote a culture of ‘stretching’ and continuous learning
Adriane Massey, GALLUP-Certified Strengths Facilitator & Coach, Strengths ZoneRecorded: Nov 5 202049 mins
What could we have done to keep you? This is a typical question posed to top talent as they’re leaving your organization. But it doesn’t always have to be that way. In other words, you probably have a lot more control over retention than you think.
Gallup data shows that 51% of U.S. employees are actively looking for a new job or are open to one. The odds are relatively good that you probably have one or a few on your team who are looking to leave your company right now, even amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
On the positive side, slightly more than half, 52%, of voluntarily exiting employees say that their manager or organization could have done something to prevent them from leaving their job.
This session, led by Adriane Massey, a GALLUP-certified Strengths Coach, explores how to use Strengths now to prevent unwanted employee exits later.
Adriane Massey is the founder of Strengths Zone, an organization that specializes in Gallup-Certified Strengths Training & Coaching. She leads virtual workshops nationwide and coaches people through career and personal hurdles, using their natural talents.

Dealing with uncertainty and ambiguity. Walking on a tightrope. Taking a giant leap of faith. Some will, some won't. Some want to, but don't. The risks often seem too big and too dangerous... even when the rewards require a certain measure of risk-taking.
Why is it that some people seem better equipped for taking risks? What do they have, think, and do that others lack? How do they recover when those risks don't pay off? How can YOU take more risks, even if they could result in failure? And why on earth would you do that?
In this presentation, we'll break it down to examine:
- The benefits of failure (Yes! You read that correctly... there ARE benefits!)
- The qualities you can build to help you step outside your comfort zone
- How to evaluate risk and create your own safety nets
- The risks of inaction and succumbing to fear
Leaders step out in front. Sometimes they take risks that others won't. But they don't do it haphazardly or irresponsibly. They do it with a spirit of confidence, interest in learning, and yearning for continuous improvement. And you can, too!
