  • How to Expose Your Company Culture to Successfully Attract New Employees
    How to Expose Your Company Culture to Successfully Attract New Employees
    Evert-Jan De Kort, Head of Brand Strategy & Founding Partner | mad about you Recorded: May 5 2020 61 mins
    How to improve the candidate experience and your overall Employer Brand Strategy in times when employees can make or break your reputation?

    Not so long ago, people were used to looking for a job that matched their skills and professional interests. These days however things have changed quite a bit and expectations about work have become much more intertwined with life.

    In today's digital age, we see people actively taking control over their work life. Employers adapt their people processes and technologies to accommodate for 'work becoming fluid'. Today’s employees want something more: meaning, purpose. A reason to live work well. They expect to enjoy the feeling and conviction that what they do matters.

    Candidates who consider applying for a job, are more than ever looking for information about the company and the people working there. The answer they are looking for is: “Can I identify myself with that company, and the people who work there?” Hence, attracting people with success to your company requires a well-considered employer culture at your company; the candidate experience starts from the inside.

    A company culture that encourages transparency, pride and ambassadorship is brought to life in a clear Employer Brand Story and Values. There are 4 conditions for an Employer Brand Story to work: it has to be True, Meaningful, Inspiring and Engaging.

    In this talk we will further explore the perspectives of the so-called work-life balance, learn the pitfalls and strengths of culture & values, and look at how some soul-searching inside your company is key to get outside talent in.
  • Human Flourishing for Empowering High Growth Cultures
    Human Flourishing for Empowering High Growth Cultures
    Tony Holmwood, Culture Strategy & Change Facilitator, Outperf4m Recorded: May 5 2020 61 mins
    For a person, flourishing is the ability to grow as a human being through good times and through life struggles. In the process, they seek to live lives of meaning and aspire to fulfill their potential. William James, the founder of modern psychology stated that the greatest discovery of his generation is that human beings can alter their lives by ultimately altering their perceptions and attitudes.

    Emerging developments in the field of neuroscience, moral/social psychology and behavioural ethics, are challenging our understanding of the ‘rational human.’ While we may have choices, collective social forces easily eclipse values such as personal integrity. The reason is our need for ‘social belonging’ influences both behaviour and mindset. Research supports 50-70% of an organisation's culture is influenced by leadership behaviour. But for employees to flourish, HR and leaders may need to change their mindset to inspire future pathways and rally employees behind a bold vision.

    In his book “Best Behaviour”, Tony Holmwood uses behavioural modelling and research to prove how environmental perceptions and social connection influences self-value. In this presentation, Tony examines how by engaging, motivating and empowering employees, HR and leaders can coach:

    - Job characteristics, circumstances like having more autonomy and job security for positive personality change.
    - Environmental perceptions by creating open, safe, secure workplaces that have a profound effect on employee self-control and confidence, wellbeing, productivity and engagement.
    - With reference to his behavioural development framework, how aligning behavioural learning to functional and professional development objectives will supercharge growth.

     Craig Mackenzie,  Head of Strategic Asset Allocation, Global Capital, Aberdeen Standard Investments Recorded: Apr 8 2020 29 mins
    Strategic Asset Allocation and ESG are closely linked.

The relationship works the other way too. We suggest that SAA can direct private capital to where it’s most needed to help alleviate our pressing social problems. In this webinar, Craig Mackenzie will seek to examine some of the more important aspects of that relationship and offer some practical investment solutions.
  • Revisiting Strategic HR
    Revisiting Strategic HR
    Jon Ingham Recorded: Apr 6 2020 58 mins
    In this hour-long webinar, Symposium trainer Jon Ingham offers an introduction to his forthcoming digital learning programmes and an overview of his insights on strategic HR. Viewing this on-demand webinar will be highly useful preparation before attending any one of our upcoming live learning programmes.

    Whilst HR has many urgent, transactional priorities right now, this is actually a great time to think more strategically too. The need for HR to be more strategic has been talked about for over 20 years now so it is no wonder that there is often a tendency to dismiss the idea of strategic HR. However understanding what being strategic means, and being able to act in a way which delivers this, is still really important.

    Firstly, although we need to continue engaging and helping to manage the workforce differently, we can also often do this in way which provides more transformational opportunities too.Remote working is the most obvious example. Many people are now communicating with their organisations using digital technologies, but they are still doing this in a centralised way. There is a compelling need to support people and our businesses by moving towards a more distributed approach in which people are able to engage outside of their traditional functions and divisions to increase their performance and broaden their contributions.

    Secondly, we can also use this time to prepare for a more strategic focus once we have passed through the current crisis. Whether we are looking at HR business partnering, organisation design,innovating HR practices or digital HR, there are really substantial benefits to be gained from acting more strategically. We can prepare to transform our approaches in all of these areas now, to increase our contribution when we have a chance to do so.

    Improve your skills, respond to the present crisis, and have more strategic impact when we move beyond this unprecedented time.
