  • Is your culture right to support the SMCR?
    Is your culture right to support the SMCR? Philippa Grocott Sep 13 2017 12:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    How many times have you seen in FCA publications, be it the Business Plan, The Conduct Risk Report or a speech or an article made or written by an FCA executive the word culture?

    In the FCA’s 2017/18 Business Plan it stated “Our focus on culture and governance in financial services and its impact on individual and firms’ conduct is a priority. We will continue to promote the right cultures, behaviours and effective governance across the industry to deliver appropriate outcomes for consumers, markets and competition consistent”

    Culture forms an important part in demonstrating these changes. With the embedding of the of the new Senior Managers Regime in Banking and the implementation for other regulated firms coming along in 2018 there isn’t a better time to ensure your strategy, governance and underlying culture are aligned.

    The FCA wants to see progress on culture, alongside embracing the requirements of the Senior Managers and Certification regime, SMCR. They have made it clear that senior management teams will be held to account for failings in company culture. Taking time now to ensure that a strong framework is in place to satisfy the regulators will give your senior managers and their teams the confidence they need to go about their day to day duties.

    The reputation (and revenues) of your business depends on your approach to culture, and conduct risk and of course, SMCR. Every week we hear of another corporate failure that has eroded the trust in the industry – better business culture has become a regulatory priority.

    Agenda

    •A Reminder of why SMCR was introduced
    •What you should have in place now
    •What is the right culture?
    •Examples of behaviour that undermine your culture
    •Key Actions

    During the webinar we will cover:

    How does a truly strategic organization think? What is strategic thinking versus strategic planning? What are the vital few factors that will determine your organisation’s long-term success or failure and are they on your radar screen?

    Who should attend.

    People with 10 years management experience minimum up to and including C-Level in all disciplines responsible for strategic decisions or large scale operational issues - so they have large budget and many people reporting to them.

    Managers and senior management from all areas of the organisation having responsibility for planning and achievement of key business objectives.

    Why you should attend.


    - Reflect on how you got where you are as an organisation;

    - What factors were critical to your success? What factors were the basis for your success?

    - What held you back – prevented you from being even more successful?
    - What could you have done differently


    Understand what are the most critical factors that will better ensure your organisation is a “winner” in the future (e.g., next 3-5 years).

    Find out which ones you may be missing and what to do about it before it’s too late and you become just an “average or good” organisation when, with a little effort and the right strategic thinking and creativity, you could take the organisation to the next level of performance and move toward “greatness”.

    Win and Wow Customers – 6 Best Practices for Onboarding in Banking and Insurance Sheryl Kingstone-451 Research, Jim Marous-Financial Brand, and Sarah Johnson-Kofax Sep 21 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Banks, credit unions and insurance companies may have differing business models, but they all have a common goal: better conversion and retention rates.

    Fortunately, better customer onboarding usually translates to better conversion and retention. For this reason, organizations continue to invest in digital technologies to streamline operations and eliminate time-consuming online interactions in areas such as new account opening, loan origination and policy applications.

    Those first information-intensive interactions, of course, are the most critical: you usually only get once chance to win a new customer’s business. But winning is only part of the equation. What if you could win—and wow—customers from those first moments and keep them engaged throughout the onboarding process?

    Mark your calendars for this upcoming webinar, where industry experts will share six best practices to help your organization win and wow customers:

    • Easy—Enable instant image and data capture via web and mobile technology
    • Accurate—Extract data from pictures of physical documents without error-prone manual entry
    • Automated—Invest in workflow tools to automate and track completion of process steps
    • Visible—Empower staff and customers with process transparency and timely communication
    • Consistent—Ensure data is complete and integrated across internal systems
    • Efficient—Meet expectations for speed, while effectively managing regulatory risks

    Speakers will include:

  • Engaging Your Employees
    Engaging Your Employees Eugenie Biddle, NS&I and Jess Hardy, The Team Nov 8 2017 10:00 am UTC 45 mins
    It is estimated that disengaged employees cost the UK economy £64bn through lost productivity, poor service delivery, and reduced discretionary effort. So consider the impact employee engagement makes to your bottom line, human and financial resources. What could be the positive impact engaged employees have on operational performance and profit? How can you leverage a compelling employer brand to ensure you attract the right talent for the right jobs? And how do you use internal communications to effectively inform, engage and inspire employees to thrive?
    Getting the brand right on the inside of the business will help maximise the brand on the outside. But it requires strategy and tactics to work together in harmony to create an employer brand consisting of loyal internal brand ambassadors, which in turn will have a positive effect on your company.

    To follow or nofollow? That is the question. Nick Gomez & James Barber (Co-Head of SEO & Senior Account Manager) Dec 5 2017 11:00 am UTC 60 mins
    To really understand what is going on with follow vs. no follow links, we need to provide a bit of background about how most links work in the realm of SEO. When a site page gets an inbound link, which is a hyperlink pointing to that page, the page gets a small SEO boost. Think of a link as a point, and the more links you have, the more points.
