    ‘Nudge for Good’ to Build Brand Trust
    Maria Borstnar, Consumer Psychologist, Engagement Adviser, Nudge2Engage Dec 13 2018 10:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Nudge: Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth, and Happiness, the ground-breaking behavioural economics work, is now 10 years old. The ‘nudge’ approach is already widely used in financial services marketing but it can still do more - as a positive brand engagement strategy.

    Financial services can build brand trust by adopting a ‘nudge for good’ approach - not only delivering marketing responses but making a positive difference to their customers’ lives at the same time.

    Because social media is already outing brands employing marketing nudges that trick customers into actions not in their best interests, #sludge, - does it mean that 2019 calls for more coherent corporate ‘nudge’ policies?

    We present ideas on using ‘nudging’ tactically and strategically to positively engage people with financial services products and brands.

    Join this webinar, led by experts from Cranfield School of Management to hear the results of the Q3 Global Supply Chain Risk Report.

    The Global Supply Chain Risk Report is a joint study by Cranfield School of Management’s Centre for Logistics and Supply Chain Management and Dun & Bradstreet, which investigates the level of supply chain risk faced by European companies with international supplier relationships.

    Analysis has been carried out using data supplied by Dun & Bradstreet, which included around 600,000 anonymous transactions between European buyers and their suppliers who were located in more than 150 countries worldwide.

    During the webinar, we will focus on the Q3 2018 report, published in December 2018. We will cover the background, the key findings and practical implications for procurement professionals.

    Register now to learn:

    - The level of supply risk in Q3 2018
    - The differences across key industry sectors and how this should be considered in procurement decisions
    - How dependency on key suppliers changed compares with the previous quarter

  • Measuring Factor Exposure Better to Manage Factor Allocation Better
    Measuring Factor Exposure Better to Manage Factor Allocation Better
    Felix Goltz, Research Director, ERI Scientific Beta. Dec 13 2018 3:00 pm UTC 53 mins
    Factor investing offers a big promise. By identifying the persistent drivers of long-term returns in their portfolios, investors can understand which risks they are exposed to, and make explicit choices about those exposures.
    In a new white paper entitled “Measuring Factor Exposure Better to Manage Factor Allocation Better: A Critical Approach to Popular Factor Box Initiatives,” ERI Scientific Beta presents a critical approach to popular factor box initiatives through two contributions questioning the choice of factor menu and factor proxies and the way in which the measurement of the latter is implemented.
    When it comes to information about factors, providers offer analytic toolkits to identify the factor exposures of an investor's portfolio. However, these analytic tools do not employ academically grounded factors and their factor finding process maximises the risk of ending up with false factors. These non-standard factors also lead to mismeasurement of exposures and may capture exposure to redundant factors. In the end, analytic tools for investors do not deliver on the promise of factor investing and they also lack transparency.
    Additionally, we may question the way in which the measurement of factor proxies is implemented. Most popular factor analysis tools used by investors deviate from the models used in research because they choose to use factor scores instead of betas. An additional problem is that the one-dimensional nature of factor scores does not take into account correlations across different factors. This leads to the double counting of the exposures of factors that are highly correlated. Lastly, many popular factor scores combine variables into composite factor scores. Combining factor scores into composite scores makes the mismeasurement problems worse as composites from skewed score distributions may be biased towards one of the variables.
    This webinar will review these issues of factor risk measurement and will show how these can be countered.

  • Understanding the Impact of Labor Laws on Employee Scheduling
    Understanding the Impact of Labor Laws on Employee Scheduling
    Dorothy Pults, Director of Product Marketing at Shiftboard Dec 27 2018 6:00 pm UTC 52 mins
    Organizations that manage a shift-based (and hourly) workforce must contend with complex scheduling rules including labor laws and labor agreements. With more states and even cities supplementing US Labor laws, it can be difficult to keep up with all the changes. Many of these laws impact overtime pay, required break periods, and employee rights around a more predictable schedule–which can significantly increase your labor costs. By understanding labor laws, you can create better employee schedules, reduce overtime, and ensure compliance.

    In this webinar, you will learn:
    • What is driving changes to labor laws in states and cities across the US
    • What are the key labor laws that affect employee scheduling
    • How technology can help you automate and create better schedules

    We will also provide some practical examples to help you understand the complexity of California, Washington, Seattle, and San Francisco labor laws. These same examples are often found in collective bargaining agreements (CBAs).

    About the presenter:
    Dorothy Pults recently completed a significant research project on US and International Labor Laws and GDPR compliance implications for scheduling shift-based (hourly) workforce. Dorothy has held leadership roles in engineering, product management and product marketing at fast growing companies including EMC, Limelight Networks and F5 Networks drive record customer growth and is recognized for her work aligning products to meet the unique needs of customers.
  • Risk Reporting
    Risk Reporting
    Dr Simon Ashby Jan 7 2019 11:00 am UTC 75 mins
    Are you looking at implementing a new risk reporting framework or update one that you have already? In this webinar we will explore some of the options that are available. Learn how to get the most from tools such as risk registers, risk and control indicators and risk matrices. Consider the options available when designing reports and identify the limitations of common risk reporting practices.

    Risk reporting is an important output from the risk management process and should be a key input into both strategic and operational decision making. But if the wrong tools are used or reports are poorly designed then reporting can do more harm than good. Are your reporting arrangements adding value to management decision making and promoting intelligent conversations about risk tasking and control or are they little more than a procedural exercise?
