While some organizations remain unresponsive to the transitions in their employees’ lives, smart companies understand that proactively supporting employees through important life events is not just compassionate, it’s good business. More and more high-profile companies such as Google, Netflix, Adobe, and Microsoft are offering extended paid maternity and paternity leave as a talent attraction and retention tool. Having family-friendly benefits and policies is a start, but it is not enough. The most positive impact on organizational outcomes occurs when leaders foster a supportive work-life culture.
In this signature research conducted in partnership between Kindercare Education and HCI, we explore how organizations are supporting working parents before, during, and after their leave for a birth or an adoption. Based on a research study of almost 300 U.S. organizations, you will learn:

How effective these work-life offerings are at attracting talent and preventing turnover
How HR functions can help working parents assimilate back into workforce regardless of the amount of leave taken

According to author and long-time advisory consultant Ken Gonzalez, leadership is not a spectator sport, you need to actually try being a leader in order to become one. Ken also says that leadership now matters far more than management.
Larry Cooper says that anyone at any level can be a leader - the real role of existing leaders is to nurture and create new ones. Larry also believes that when an organization’s leaders no longer have to make any day-to-day decisions is the point at which they will have achieved true leadership agility.
So with all the talk about leadership agility and how leadership is now more valued than management, how are we to make sense of it all?
In this lively talk Ken and Larry will explore the differences between leadership and management, why leadership now matters more, the real role of leadership, the challenges to achieving it, and what leadership agility looks like. Finally, they leave you with three key take-away’s for better understanding the premise of true leadership agility.

It’s the HR issue that’s here to stay. The Office for National Statistics predicts that by 2017, 30% of the UK workforce will be over 50. This percentage is only going to increase.

Employer(s) leading the field share their experience, challenges and successes on the key issues for the over 50’s including caring for older loved ones, flexibility, health and wellbeing, and multigenerational working.
Improving customer experience across the federal government continues to be a priority for the Obama administration. While the road to success is full of challenges, agencies are starting to plan and deliver mission services by putting customers and citizens at the forefront of their decision-making.
Customer service champions are helping to deliver better services through the intelligent use of technology and improved management and governance, and agencies are beginning to map their many interactions with citizens to provide an improved customer service for the American public.
This continued emphasis on customer experience has the potential to transform the way people interact with government in myriad ways, from paying taxes and receiving benefits to simply navigating its many services. But developing customer-focused strategies is still a major challenge for most agencies accustomed to the bureaucracy of government, and it needs to remain an emphasis for progress to continue through to the next presidential administration.
Employees going through the transition to parenthood can be lost from the most demanding roles in the workforce and/or from the talent pipeline, unless we pay attention to this area.

And equipping line managers for effective, timely communication as well as tips on avoiding pitfalls makes a huge difference.
In this webinar we examine the business case and hear first-hand from employers who are reaping the benefits.
Change is occurring at unprecedented levels which is leading to uncertainty and trepidation by leaders from the smallest to the largest of organizations.

Millennials are narcissistic, entitled, and the only way to keep them interested is by providing office perks made famous by Silicon Valley tech giants, right? Wrong. To remain competitive, organizations must understand – and respond to – the unique needs and demands of millennial workers. In this webinar you’ll learn strategies for evolving your talent initiatives to more effectively engage and retain the millennial workforce.
The corporate landscape is becoming more talent-centric; where business insight and social tools are essential, modern Human Resources (HR) needs to refocus its strategies around the employee experience to address this business need.

The key to sustaining corporate culture ultimately lies in identifying, recruiting and selecting top performing talent; talent that already fits – and thus will sustain – your culture. But how do you do that? Most organizations tend to follow the “bull’s-eye” strategy – highly focused on hitting the center of the dartboard: the skillset. However, organizations can benefit from refocusing from only the “bull’s-eye” to the entire target in identifying top performing talent. Attendees will learn how to connect the dots between attraction/selection, evaluation and development, all the while using competencies and success attributes required to not only be a top performer, but to fit culturally. They will also learn how to consistently apply these criteria when selecting and hiring talent, managing and assessing performance, and training and development throughout the lifecycle of the employee.
Attendees will gain insight and understanding into how implementing predictive success attributes, structured behavioral interviews and weighted evaluations can help identify top performing talent – talent that fits and sustains your culture.

What really makes it work from the point of view of employees, and has much changed in the last 2 years?
