    From top performer to first time manager...
    Jessica Brook - Culture Amp, Matt Grimshaw - The Pioneers, Chantal Wilson - Honest Burger Recorded: Jul 16 2019 33 mins
    Rapid growth inevitably means more people - which almost always means more managers. Ideally these managers bring a depth of experience from within the company, when processes and systems aren’t yet codified - these managers are the glue to how things work. With this in mind, many companies choose to promote from within. We know that managers are crucial to business success, so how do you set your managers up to succeed?

    Join us, The Pioneers and Chantal Wilson, Head of People from Honest Burger where we will explore questions, such as:
    - To promote or not to promote? Challenges, risks and rewards.
    - How to grow effective managers?
    - How to use employee feedback to amplify manager capability?
  • New Research to Elevate and Transform Employee Engagement Efforts
    New Research to Elevate and Transform Employee Engagement Efforts
    Erica Carranza, Ph.D. VP of Consumer Psychology Chadwick Martin Bailey & Christina Zurek Insights & Strategy Leader ITA Recorded: Jul 11 2019 51 mins
    Enriching compensation packages is an effective but expensive way to engage individual employees, and as recent research has revealed, many of the most common employee wellness and engagement initiatives are not yielding their promised impact. What are these initiatives missing?

    Join us to learn more about the results of a landmark study that seeks to answer this question by uncovering what engagement initiatives must accomplish for employees—on a psychological level—to be effective.

    Using scientific insight into human motivation and advanced analytic techniques, we will share several key findings from our research, including:
    •How tapping in to five critical psychological benefits can provide a framework for true, sustainable engagement
    •Why wellness and other popular programs aren’t delivering on the promise of employee engagement—and where organizations must focus instead
    •How organizations can determine the right combination of initiatives to deliver the key psychological benefits that ultimately drive talent retention
  • Building company cultures one human at a time
    Building company cultures one human at a time
    Golbie Kamarei, Chief People Officer, Culture Amp Recorded: Jul 10 2019 46 mins
    Culture is the biggest lever that any organization has to drive performance. Employees want to feel understood and valued as human beings while also being empowered and supported by leaders in their organization. Leaders who intentionally design, invest in, and prioritize their organization’s culture tend to experience an improvement in financial performance and customer satisfaction. We call this being “Culture First”.

    What does being Culture First mean to you and your organization? In this session, Culture Amp’s Chief People Officer, Golbie Kamarei will share strategies and insights on how to harness collective intelligence, data, mindfulness, company values, leadership and performance management to impact company culture, one human at a time.

    Jess Brannigan - Senior People Scientist, Culture Amp Recorded: Jul 10 2019 28 mins

In this webinar, we will examine how organisations can think about their approach from the employee perspective, and how they can best help individuals to make the most from performance management processes and conversations to develop themselves and their careers.

  • Building a Culture First Performance Management System
    Building a Culture First Performance Management System
    Melissa Paris - Senior People Scientist, Culture Amp Recorded: Jul 8 2019 30 mins
    The traditional approach to performance management isn’t working, with as many as 95% of managers dissatisfied with their organisation's performance management system, and 90% of HR leaders believing their system does not deliver accurate information about employee performance. Yet, effective performance management not only has a positive impact on employee engagement, motivation and productivity, but also allows your organisation to align individual performance with strategic business goals, driving the overall productivity and profitability of your company. Here, we’ll discuss how to build (or re-build) performance management to align to your business strategy, how to brand this strategy to gain employee buy-in, and how other Culture First companies have approached performance measurement and employee development to drive business success.

    In the competition to attract and retain talent across multiple generations, the best Employee Value Propositions include family-friendly benefits and policies.

    • Nearly 61%* of women would take an organisation’s gender pay gap into consideration when looking for a new job.
    • Flexible working is the top benefit people look for when considering a new role, way beyond any other typical benefits.**
    • Women put parent and carer benefits second only to flexible working when considering a new role**

    With online comparison sites and social media further increasing transparency on employer culture, policies and benefits, prospective and existing employees have never been more aware or had more access to this level of information. And it matters to them!

    In this webinar hosted by James Marsh, we’re delighted to be joined by a strong panel of guests from Barclays, PiPA, Hays, recruiting experts worldwide, and My Family Care / Bright Horizons.

  • The Gig Economy: Changing How You Manage Projects
    The Gig Economy: Changing How You Manage Projects
    Candice Benson Recorded: Jun 19 2019 53 mins
    Our economy is on fire! The latest numbers here in the U.S. show that companies added 263,000 jobs in April alone. And unemployment is down to 3.6%, which is the lowest since 1969. All of this growth and opportunity has companies struggling to hire the talent they need – and so they are turning to consultants and freelancers, those making up the Gig economy. Studies are showing that the need for supplementing their workforce will not slow down – especially in the area of project management.

    The Project Management Institute (PMI), has stated that there will be a need for 87.7 million project managers by 2027 to meet business demands – and that our inability to meet the demand could result in $207.9 billion in GDP losses. By the same year, studies have shown that independent contractors are projected to become a majority of the workforce.

    Managing workers in the ‘Gig’ economy well is critical, enabling an organization to put the right talent in place where and when it is most needed – especially as talented full-time workers are harder to find and harder to keep.

    Attend and learn:
    •New strategies for resource allocating and planning, including a focus on the role, not the source, of the talent
    •How focusing on inclusion, diversity, and fairness is critical to weaving gig workers into your team
    •The four critical processes you must have in place to ensure success
    •Tactics needed to manage a new type of team
  • Leading Team or Organizational Change

  • Your Product is Your Best Salesperson
    Your Product is Your Best Salesperson
    Amanda Nielsen, Demand Generation and Strategic Partnerships at New Breed Jul 17 2019 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    This week Amanda Nielsen joins us to discuss how your company's product can be its best salesperson.

    Product-led growth. It's not just another B2B buzzword. Amanda will discuss why she only recommends one strategy for growth in the SaaS industry -- product-led growth. Product-led growth describes a business strategy that capitalizes on the merit and mileage of your product itself. And she knows it works because some of today’s most successful SaaS companies — from Slack to Atlassian to Calendly — were built on the inherent virality of their products.

    But how do you actually lead with your product? Does every company have the ability to use product-led growth to drive success? What if you can’t afford to offer your product for free?

    In this session, Amanda will answer those questions and more. You will walk away with a tangible plan for letting your products sell themselves.

    Enterprise growth requires executive leadership involvement when it comes to changing the culture, focus, or services an organization offers. To be successful, the growth strategy must focus on many things at once, including people. Every aspect of the organization has to work together, and here’s where HR’s role is crucial. Whether it’s a new product, or a shift in competitive focus, HR is intrinsic to helping the company stay competitive. HR’s role in driving the success of the organization includes a number of factors. HR must ensure the administrative function of the organization are handled, but must focus attention on the important role of sharing the culture and vision of the organization. Internal and external relationships will help shape the HR function, as well as your career.

    Jess Brook - Senior People Science; Bailey Edgell - Senior Customer Success; Gabriela Matias - Go Cardless Jul 25 2019 2:30 pm UTC 30 mins
    Diversity and Inclusion are not new concepts, but as we look to an increasingly intersectional future, many growing businesses are considering their approach.

    Some Diversity and Inclusion strategies sound great but are harder, in reality, to implement and many just feel like 'checking the box'. This is a new field full of challenges, so embedding D&I in your culture's architecture early on will ensure your organization has a diverse and inclusive culture as you grow.

    This instalment brings research and customer experience together to look at ways Culture First organisations make D&I an important pillar in their organisational culture.

    Where’s Waldo: Finding top talent in the crowd
    Lori Kleiman, SHRM-SCP, SPHR Aug 8 2019 9:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Recruiting has to be more than just filling a vacant position – and retaining top talent is all about making the right selection to begin with. Managers need to look at the scope of the role – and how that may have changed since the last person held the position. What do they really need in the future…and how can succession planning be impacted by hiring just the right person. Candidates look for jobs in a new way, and the tools available to managers to screen candidates should be utilized. Technology can be a huge time saver in communicating with and evaluating candidates. Tools in background evaluation and personality assessment will be reviewed to help managers determine which are appropriate to bring into their recruiting process. We will provide participants with recommendations to determine starting salary and the proper preparation of the offer letter. Finally, our discussion will conclude with the tools to identify top talent and ensure they are aligned with the long-term success of your organization.

    Learning Objectives:

    ·Options for filling the candidate pipeline
    ·Creating an interview experience that gets the information you need
    ·Embracing technology while still creating a personal connection
    ·Development in background and credit check compliance
    ·Full cycle recruiting goes beyond the offer letter
  • Managing culture during mergers & acquisitions
    Managing culture during mergers & acquisitions
    Bobby Melloy, Senior People Scientist, Culture Amp Aug 13 2019 5:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Mergers & acquisitions are a time of uncertainty for employees, managers, and leadership on both sides of the table. In fact, over half of mergers and acquisitions fail, and the most common reason is the human factor. Acquiring leadership may feel in the dark about the culture they are gaining, and unsure whether they’ll retain employees after the transition. There can also be cultural differences, employee politics, and ineffective communication. Knowing exactly what will happen to your own company culture during the process is nearly impossible.

    Organizations should consider the human factor just as important as any synergy, viability, or feasibility score. During this webinar, Dr. Bobby Melloy, Senior People Scientist at Culture Amp will discuss how to manage culture during mergers & acquisitions.

    You will learn:

    -Why culture matters during M&A
    -Managing culture during each phase of an M&A such as target screening and due diligence
    -Actions for prioritizing culture during the integration period
    -The positive impact of post-integration employee surveys
