We provide an introduction into how to leverage behavioural science to better understand not only the corporation’s stated values but also the lived values of employees. By assessing institutional and individuals values, we can ascribe a numeric “score” that measures the cultural alignment (and misalignment) within the workplace. As a result, HR professionals gain the intelligence they need to recruit, retain and engineer a highly-engaged, top-performing workforce.
Learn how quantifying corporate culture can benefit:
* Executives: Increasing company profitability & employee performance
* Managers: Maximizing employee engagement & workgroup productivity
* Employees: Understanding cultural fit & opportunities for advancement

Under the GDPR, consent must be obtained in an understandable and easily digestible format, using clear and simple language. By offering people genuine choice and control over how you use their data, it helps you build trust and enhance your reputation.
The problem for a lot of businesses is that their legacy systems usually don’t document the level of data required to prove that a valid, unambiguous consent or contractual acceptance was obtained. Manual processes and paper plague the most common transactions and introduce friction in the moments that matter most to their business.
Whether acquiring consent from new customers or renewing consent from your existing database, you can do so with DocuSign’s secure and user-friendly solution. Attend this webinar to:

A growing number of states have or are planning to legalize marijuana for medical or recreational use. At the same time, many are also dealing with the opioid epidemic plaguing the country.
Many states limit adverse employment action for medical marijuana use, and in Maine, employers can’t discriminate against an employee for off-duty marijuana use. As a result, employers are faced with complex challenges related to state human rights issues, state compliance issues and the increasing cost of noncompliance.

Defined benefit pension schemes with future service benefits have been largely forgotten by the DWP and the Pensions Regulator, but future service costs can cause even more problems (for those employers that do wish to provide them) than the well-publicised past-service deficits.
A few high profile schemes, such as Royal Mail, have started to ask for legislative changes to allow “Collective DC” (or CDC) schemes to be used in the UK. Barnett Waddingham Partner, Paul Hamilton looks at how DB future accrual works (or doesn’t work) in the UK, and is joined by Rajish Sagoenie, Managing Director of Milliman Pensioenen in The Netherlands to talk through his experiences of working with CDC schemes there.

Our experts will talk about importance of mentoring — though that it's not for everyone — how to find the right mentor and mentee for you, and how it's an important part of building a career in tech.

You'll learn about informal and formal guilds that support that mentoring, and what companies should do to facilitate these benefits.

Recruiting has to be more then 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.
·Options for filling the candidate pipeline
·Embracing technology while still creating a personal connection
·Utilizing pre-employment testing at the right time for the right results
·Development in background and credit check compliance
·Full cycle recruiting goes beyond the offer letter
