Organizations that manage a shift-based (and hourly) workforce must contend with complex scheduling rules including labor laws and labor agreements. With more states and even cities supplementing US Labor laws, it can be difficult to keep up with all the changes. Many of these laws impact overtime pay, required break periods, and employee rights around a more predictable schedule–which can significantly increase your labor costs. By understanding labor laws, you can create better employee schedules, reduce overtime, and ensure compliance.
In this webinar, you will learn:
• What is driving changes to labor laws in states and cities across the US
• What are the key labor laws that affect employee scheduling
• How technology can help you automate and create better schedules
We will also provide some practical examples to help you understand the complexity of California, Washington, Seattle, and San Francisco labor laws. These same examples are often found in collective bargaining agreements (CBAs).

The employee survey came back with some concerning numbers. The managers with employees who are less engaged need to figure out how to turn it around... But where should they begin?

The Pension Protection Fund (PPF) released a consultation on 27 September 2017, setting out draft rules for the PPF levy and significant changes on the way this will be calculated. The changes are designed to improve the fairness of the levy, but will inevitably lead to winners and losers and for some schemes, the change in levy will be very significant.
We’ll be looking at the impact of the PPF’s proposals and what actions trustees and employers can take to reduce their levy.

You’ve heard “Do more with less” a lot over the last decade. But as teams get leaner, the talent marketplace is becoming more competitive. It’s a candidate marketplace and that’s why it’s now more important than ever to find, engage and hire talent as efficiently—and effectively—as possible.
Join us October 17 at 1 p.m. EST for our latest webinar: How Automation Is Enabling Lean HR Teams To Be More Productive.

Over one third of employers report losing candidates because of a bad background screening process. In a competitive labor market, even the slightest hitch in the hiring process can lead to a poor candidate experience and lost hires. In contrast, well implemented background screens can improve the candidate experience, reduce risky hires, and lead to reduced turnover.
You will learn:
-Why background screening is critical to the candidate experience
-What to look for when selecting and implementing a background screening provider
-How background screening can impact your overall employer brand and improve retention rates
It’s time to make the shift from an inbound recruiting strategy to the new school of recruiting and continuous candidate engagement. The foundation of new school recruiting is data and its emergence as the strategic differentiator in recruiting (just like it is in Marketing).
Join us on Tuesday, October 10 as Jobvite’s Rachel Bitte, Chief People Officer, and Matt Singer, VP of Marketing, discuss the evolution of recruiting, its parallels with marketing, and how to leverage data in transforming the recruiting culture within your organization from episodic recruiting to continuous candidate engagement. Key takeaways from the webinar include:
-Understanding your funnel and how it compares to industry benchmarks
-Adjusting to the market shift from a recruiter-based strategy to a candidate-based strategy
-Driving that change management across your organization
-Tracking your success with peers, management, and your executive team
Employees are the backbone of every organization and managers know that. When the focus is on getting new customers, creating new revenue streams, making a profit and being innovation - who has time to make employees happy. Aren’t they here to do a job anyway? Well yes, but they still need to know they make a difference. In this program, we’ll look at how happy employees can support your corporate initiatives and actually give you time back. And, it can all happen with minimal effort and budget.
Learning Objectives (for our sheet)
•Identify what your employees need from you
•Align employee appreciation with corporate strategy
•Set 3 goals to connect directly with your team
•Develop strategies to incorporate engagement into every day work
It’s easy to preach the value of sourcing, but it’s difficult to prioritize regularly. Why spend hours reaching out to passive candidates - who may never reply - when you can just respond to candidates who are actively looking?
Because proactive sourcing is key to filling your high-priority, hard-to-fill roles. Since Shopify zeroed in on proactive outreach three years ago, their growth has been explosive. They’ve skyrocketed from 550 to over 2,000 employees and made 387 hires through proactive sourcing, including 110 hard-to-fill roles.
What’s more? They've doubled their candidate response rate to cold outreach from 21 to 42 percent since rolling out Lever Nurture.
Want to know the secrets behind their unprecedented success? On October 10th, Recruiting Researcher Jess Verbruggen will share the outreach tactics that actually pique the interest of candidates, and ultimately lead to monumental growth.
Join us to learn:
- Why Shopify knew they had to prioritize proactive sourcing in the first place
- How they advocated to build a team of recruiting researchers who specialize in sourcing
- Concrete steps to increase your response rate to cold outreach
- The direct link between sourcing and massively scaling your team
In a global market that can be quick to change and volatile diverse skills and ideas are needed more than ever. However when faced with over 200 applicants or more for just two roles, time constraints and efficiency needed to whittle candidates down can lead to organisations missing these hidden qualities. Changing the way we recruit can be risky, but small changes in how we attract, select and interact with potential talent can make a difference long term. In this introductory webinar, suggestions about how to do this will be made and discussed.
Recruiting has to be more then just filling a vacant position – and retaining top talent is all about making the right selection to being 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

As women, we tend to undersell ourselves and avoid negotiating for what we want. We might hold back from seeking a promotion until we can tick off all the required experience. We may assume others will notice our work and ask us to lead the next project. And we certainly don’t want to brag about our accomplishments and why we deserve a bump in our salary. Frankly, we feel uncomfortable negotiating for what we want.
But we have to learn to go to bat for ourselves, using our authentic style and voice.
In this interactive workshop, you will learn:
- How to discover your true value
- Leverage it to craft an ASK for decision makers
