Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

HR Strategy

  • Change is occurring at unprecedented levels which is leading to uncertainty and trepidation by leaders from the smallest to the largest of organizations. Yet there are some leaders and organizations who seem to thrive, not in spite of these circumstances, but because of them. They have learned to adapt and iterate their strategies just as agile teams do for software development. Ever wondered how to do that in your organization?

    The Adaptive Strategy Framework is your tour guide for strategic excellence in creating value based on iterative and incremental execution of Strategic Change to realize your organization’s vision and strategies. The framework encourages emergent thinking across Networked Teams and enables strategic adaptability through continuous refinement of an organization’s capabilities.

    The framework consists of Networked Teams (with roles), events, artifacts, and rules.

    All attendees will get a link during the webinar to download a free copy of the Framework. The Framework will be made freely available after the launch event though BSSNexus will retain all copyrights.
  • Christian Wirth talks about "The impact of cloud learning in today’s mobile workforce"
  • Are you a global company struggling to answer simple management questions regarding employees quickly? Is getting basic employee information slow, painful, laborious and time consuming? Do you report reactively on the past? Does your data sit in silos across multiple sources without one version of the truth?

    If you face any of these issues in your HR team, then join this webinar to hear from Fairsail about how HR can fly on instruments instead of flying blind.
  • Traditional project management approaches focus on measuring performance in terms of respecting time and cost estimates. Those measures confirm performance after the fact and do not address the main driver of project success: engaged high-performing teams.

    This webinar, co-hosted by Charlotte Goudreault and Claude Emond, will present the link between continuously engaged teams, superior performance and successful high value project delivery, as well as explain how agile values, principles and tools can help build and develop continuously engaged, high-performing project teams.

    Charlotte and Claude will also present and demonstrate, using real project data, a simple 3-step approach, based on agile techniques and inspired by their own experiences in projects, that will help you to quickly mobilize your teams (any types of teams, project-oriented or production-oriented) and keep them engaged and high-performing.

    Those who attend the webinar will be given access to a pdf copy of the presentation slides as well as to a copy of an Excel template that can be used as a support tool to monitor and improve team engagement.
  • Managing your people through spreadsheets? Struggling to engage employees? You may need a global cloud HR system. Find out why here.
  • Mitsubishi UFG has employees in multiple locations with complex cross-border statutory requirements, different benefits and processes in existence. Learn how consolidation of their legacy HR systems made managing this simple, improved HR productivity and delivered a better employee experience.
  • SolarWinds has achieved tremendous growth through both organic and inorganic activity including 12 acquisitions over a three year period. With such a rapid increase in employee numbers, the company required a robust and scalable cloud HRMS to manage the entire workforce and provide better workforce visibility to management. This video explains why SolarWinds chose Fairsail's HRMS.
  • More and more federal employees are making the transition to life after government. Regardless of where you are in your career, it pays to plan carefully for this life-changing event. Join us for a discussion of benefits available to federal retirees, pitfalls to avoid and key tips for making the most of your retirement.
  • Technology company DADI decided to dispense with offices for good. Founding partner Chris Mair explains why he rejected bricks and mortar and how the company runs on an entirely distributed basis.

    “We thought long and hard about the role of an office in the kind of company that we are and decided to give it a go without a permanent base.”

    Flexible Boss editor Heather Greig-Smith asks Chris what lessons other organisations can learn from this approach, looking at the infrastructure, culture and effort needed to make remote working a business success.

    This session will help organisations keen to embed flexibility and increase employee autonomy and engagement. Tips to help managers, departments and teams challenge the status quo - even if they want to keep their offices as well.

  • More and more companies are taking an international view, in order to try and insulate themselves against economic woes in individual countries and are opening offices in far flung climbs.

    So with this in mind how should HR departments approach the task of making businesses more mobile? How should issues regarding ever changing legal and immigration rules be approached for example. And how should HR departments deal with the difficult task of assisting employees in relocating individuals and the more complex task of relocating families.
  • Essentially, employer awards are a great way of building employer brand both internally and externally.

    They provide a 'short form' way of getting a company's message and culture out both internally, and to potential external talent.

    And in a marketplace where more of the talent than ever before has work and family commitments, some employers are leading the field!
    We’re joined by two organisations running key award schemes, Working Families and workingmums.co.uk, to discuss the trends in making work+family work and what they look for when it comes to award entries.

    We’ll also be hearing from multi award winning employers who’ll be sharing their stories.
  • Hiring executives through inbound is a reality. Just ask Tony Le from IAC Publishing who hired 3 executive positions using recruitment marketing on the SmartRecruiters platform, saving him $250,000 in executive search fees.

    This webcast will explain how to provide an amazing candidate experience and give you the tips and tricks to resurrect your inbound candidates.

    Recorded at the Hiring Success User Conference 2016, Inbound Isn't Dead features, Tony Le from IAC Publishing and Roy Baladi from SmartRecruiters.
  • Learn how employers use backup family care to keep their employees engaged at work – and on the job – when an unexpected change in how they care for a child, parent, spouse or other family member arises. Two leaders in employer-sponsored family care solutions will share real-world examples of how leading employers across the U.S. leverage backup family care to get the job done every day.
  • We can all get stressed from time to time. Sometimes things really boil over, what MBTI users call ‘being in the Grip’, but much more often we just have to manage the everyday stresses of life.

    In this webinar, Penny Moyle, CEO of OPP, and John Hackston, Head of Research, will take you through how, when we become stressed, an over-reliance on our strengths means that we don’t perform at our best, but how an awareness of our MBTI Type will help us to avoid, survive and master the effects of stress. They will also show you how to use new imagery and resources to explain these concepts to others.

    You don’t need to be a qualified MBTI Practitioner to participate in this webinar, but it will help if you know your MBTI Type preference.

    NOTE - There was a sound problem on this webcast so you may want to skip between 14:58 and 17:56. Apologies for the inconvenience.
  • A live webinar on Q1 2016 capital market performance. A global overview will be discussed, as well as the returns of stock and bond asset classes in the US and international markets followed by Q&A.
Its so easy to get caught up in the minutia – but you’ve got to get work done. And then there is your personal life…yes, that is important too! We are all learning that work/life balance is a myth – it’s about work life focus, and owning critical pieces at the right time. Our programs helps attendees understand roadblocks to their day and get more done, while maintaining control of their expectations and constraints. We look at actions and priorities, empowerment and evaluation as tools to take control of your day.
  • The proposed Fair Labor Standards Act changes coming in 2016 will have major implications for your organization, but it will impact the bottom line most of all. Do you know what it will cost you in additional pay and overtime? Are you prepared to be audited if you have Independent Contractors?

    This one hour session will walk through all the current proposals and probable changes to the FLSA in 2016. Suggested pay rates will more than double for some employees, budgets will rise across the board as costs rise, and exemption categories are being inspected closely. There may be alternatives to these changes that you can use in your operation to make sure you’re in compliance NOW and plan for tomorrow.

    We’ll cover:

    • Strategies for dealing with the new requirements
    • Formulas for adjusting Salary/Hourly Rates
    • Communication Techniques for discussing these changes with employees
    • Are they Independent Contractors or Employees?
    • Who is exempt and who isn’t
  • So what has been the impact of Shared Parental Leave? Is it a revolution that’s finally taken the gender issue out of parenting, or still a small ripple among a few daring pioneers?

    One year on from the legislation coming into effect, this webinar will look at the following areas:

    • How employers have changed their parental pay and policies.
    • Take-up, strategic impact and the factors that have influenced it
    • What challenges and successes employers have experienced since implementing changes.
    • What employers have learnt and how it has affected their broader approach to working parents
  • Today’s concept of a manager is about people development, being supportive to a variety of needs, having techniques to help you manage your own mood, put others in ‘good humour’, be resilient, self-motivated and motivate others amongst other more technical skills is a must. Being the ‘go-to manager’ that is approachable and supportive when others need you are all part of the skills needed in today’s working environment. Laughology understands the role of the manager has changed, in fact even using the term manager seems old fashioned. Team leaders, people leaders or even just leaders seems more apt. It’s all about knowing how to stay on-top in order to keep your team on-top, happy, supported and feeling good. Understanding more about the brain and how it works helps people and organisations increase their ability to recognise their potential and ability, to take on challenges, persist and develop. We call this Growth-mind set, developing people by encouraging high –expectations and supporting them through this process.

    Developing and supporting happy teams (what-ever you like to call yourself) starts with developing the individual. At Laughology we understand and have researched the principles of happiness and how to create teams and individuals that are emotionally flexible. We understand happiness is about understanding human beings, not about processes and systems but developing humans to help them reach their potential and in turn they will commit to helping the organisation reach theirs.
  • Teamwork is seen as a business prerequisite, but as we know not all teams operate at the same level. This is true at the top of an organisation as it is elsewhere in the business. Establishing the basics around clarity, team goals and dynamics will get you good teamwork and of course good results. The difference between a good team and a high performing team is small, but the results can be up to a 3 times as much. So what are the levers and what could a team and team leader do to develop them into a great team?

    This webinar aims to answer two questions:

    •What are the characteristics of a High Performance Team?
    •What can a team actually do to become one?
  • Joining the C-suite requires a different skill set then being just a great HR professional. Do you struggle with getting your CEO's attention? Do you feel stuck in compliance and administration? How do you expand your perspective and get the recognition you deserve? The answers lie in taking control of your own career. This session will focus on what you need to do to be the strategic executive who is action-oriented and embraces technology to drive your strategic plan forward. This session is designed to empower you to integrate HR with the rest of the organization – and give you the voice to take your career anywhere you want to go!
  • Today’s fast moving, highly competitive marketplace is placing unprecedented pressure on organisations and individuals to develop and change. From taking advantage of technology innovations to capitalising on the opening up of global markets, protecting ourselves from economic uncertainties to understanding the expectations of our customers and workers; the need for strong leadership has never been greater. Why? Because everything rises and falls on leadership.

    And leadership is not about position or job title. Leadership is about the person. Strong leaders give hope and confidence. They provide the optimism that leads to success and achievement, an optimism that can so easily be affected by uncertainty and change. Leadership is a skill that can be learnt and developed.

    In this webinar Simon Jackson will share his experience and insight that has been gained over many years working with leading global brands on transformation initiatives that have focused on leadership development and change programmes. We will explore the essential elements of leadership and how our behavior so significantly affects those around us. We will look at the inner game of leadership to understand how our own thinking may be holding us back.

    If you are an experienced leader, how do you know how you are doing? Whether you are an experienced leader or you are aspiring to lead others, we all have the ability to grow and become better leaders.

  • Most employers are coming to understand that the age-old, post-and-pray advertising tactics aren’t working, and many are venturing into a more progressive approach: Recruitment marketing. Fundamental challenges to this approach include defining key performance indicators and how to measure success.

    According to the latest findings from Lighthouse Research & Advisory’s benchmark survey, Modern Measures of Success in Talent Acquisition, 78% of companies say that measuring performance in Talent Attraction and Engagement is important or critically important. The only problem (and it’s a big one) is that 45% of companies are relying on inconsistent, or anecdotal data. Among retail employers, 38% aren’t tracking performance data at all.

    On March 15th 2016, 11am PDT / 2pm EST, Lighthouse’s Principal Analyst, Kyle Lagunas, will share key findings from his research on modern measures of success in these critical capabilities including:

    –What key metrics hiring organizations are tracking today
    –How they’re tracking performance data in these areas
    –What insights they’re generating as a result
    –How they’re leveraging these insights to optimize recruiting performance

    Register today and as a thank you we will send you complimentary report including a summary of key findings from the research post webinar.
  • This session will be focused on the practical approaches deployed by top performers to source energy and maximise impact as leaders and individual contributors.

    It will draw on the latest thinking in the field of psychology and leadership to identify habits which when applied consistently help people to gain momentum and progress in key areas of importance in their working and personal life. A holistic approach is needed which allows a given individual to work on physical, emotional, intellectual
    and spiritual /transformational habits which can help them to not only to enhance intrinsic satisfaction but also to raise their level of resilience and resourcefulness in their working lives. This session will cover the top habits which have been found to be most effective in all fields of life i.e. corporate, creative and sport .
