  • The talent in your organizations – the front line employees who are usually paid hourly - perform incredibly valuable work. They are often the first employees seen by the customer. They’re the seasonal or part-time employees who help the business during really busy times. Selecting, engaging and retaining an hourly workforce is critical to organizational success. And hiring hourly employees isn’t exactly the same as salaried staff recruitment. In fact, it can be harder and take more strategy.

    Join the Findly team and Sharlyn Lauby, author of the blog HR Bartender, as we discuss what it takes to find the best hourly talent for your business. You will benefit from Sharlyn’s seasoned views on:

    - What today’s hourly workforce wants
    - Why hiring hourly employees is different
    - 5 strategies for sourcing hourly talent
    - How to measure your effectiveness
  • Few people actually calculate the true cost of bad meetings, in fact, the Harvard Business Review discovered:

    - 15% of an organization's time is spent in meetings
    - 67% of meetings are rated as ineffective
    - 92% of people multitask in meetings
    - $32 Billion dollars is wasted in bad meetings

    The reality is, meetings are still a crucial part of running an effective business. The value of effective meetings saves companies an average $2,600 per employee per year.

    In this webinar, you'll learn how to save time + money through the power of Integrated Meetings, we'll show you a process we've taken over 15+ years of research to perfect and refine meetings that you can apply immediately in your company and with your team.

  • Performance analytics have become increasingly advanced with traditional means of tracking the effectiveness and efficiency of the recruitment function giving way to far more sophisticated methods. Questions around how we measure RPO success and what we use to do so are more pertinent now than ever.

    To find out what companies really think about RPO metrics and how they could be improved in the future, Futurestep partnered with HRO Today Magazine to undertake a primary market research study among users of recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) services. We focused our investigation on three key areas:

    - What Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are being used in the RPO space?
    - How satisfied are users with those metrics?
    - What metrics do users want that they don’t currently have?

    Please join us as we review the findings of Measuring Up?, our research report about RPO metrics, and discuss the relationship between successful recruitment metrics and successful RPOs.

  • The latest research shows that HR and Talent staff are struggling to deliver the reports to support their business colleagues.

While the law is complex, the government agencies tasked with enforcing its provisions ensure complete compliance through the use of intensive plan investigations and the administration of significant financial penalties.

  • While most parents would be delighted if their offspring wanted to become an accountant, lawyer or even an actuary, they may be less encouraging if their son or daughter said they wanted to be a hacker. This is the negative manifestation of working in the cyber security industry that is often portrayed in the media. The reality is very different, with careers in cyber security providing fantastic opportunities that are hugely varied, really challenging and help to do good for society.

    Structured career paths provide an opportunity to progress quickly with jobs in large audit and accountancy firms through to small specialist boutique start-ups, as well as the chance for international work and creating new businesses. In addition, the whole industry is very diverse and is looking for people with a very wide range of talents.

    The problem is how do we communicate this to people who may be interested in the industry? Just as important for young people, how do we get to the influencers; their parents and their careers advisors to understand what an exciting place the cyber security industry is to work in and what they can expect in terms of the types of company they could work for and their salary expectations.

    The problem can be partially solved through education, information and support from businesses working together with a consistent message designed to encourage the very best people into the industry.

    In this presentation, Ian Glover from CREST will look at the challenges of attracting the brightest young people into careers that traditionally have an image problem and providing a strong career path once they are in. In particular, he will focus on the importance of properly-run internships and Government funded initiatives to educate and inform.
