HR and People strategies are always evolving. We’re far from the days of traditional annual surveys, and more companies are starting to embrace the idea of continuous listening strategy. Similar to building a culture of feedback, continuous listening means gathering feedback more often across the employee lifecycle.
Always listening to your employees often results in people feeling ignored. Here, we’ll explore the definition of continuous listening strategy, how it’s enabled by technology and in-person feedback, how companies have found success with frequent feedback and how you can get started.
When applying for roles as a D-level or C-suite executive, many people pour all their energies into their CV and often end up neglecting their cover letter. No longer a mere formality, a stellar cover letter can, in fact, be the difference between success and rejection.
Join our upcoming 45-minute webinar ‘How to Craft a Winning Cover Letter’ to get insight, tips and tools to ensure recruiters will be placing you on the interview list.
The session will be hosted by our CV Specialist, Brendan Gurrie, who has helped to expertly craft bespoke cover letters for hundreds of In Touch members. Brendan will explore how a great cover letter should complement your tailored CV. It must both pique a recruiter’s interest and adds an extra dimension to your resume.
During the webinar, Brendan will share his expert knowledge, looking at the dos and don’ts of cover letter writing, revealing the common mistakes many people make and explaining how to ensure you maximise the potential of your one-page pitch.
The following topics will be covered during the session:
- Why a cover letter counts
- Back to Basics - don’t let silly mistakes ruin your chances
- Research - make sure you know the company and how to sell yourself to them
- Crafting the Cover Letter - what you must include to guarantee success
There will also be the opportunity to ask any outstanding questions you may have during a 15 minute Q&A session at the end of the presentation.
We hear over and over again that employee engagement is low. A 2017 Gallup report shows 51% of the workforce is not engaged, and 16% are actively disengaged. What’s missing in our workplace cultures that has led to such low engagement?
Connection. Connection between people - between employees and their leaders. Between teams. Between people and their companies. We have so much technology at hand to bring us together, but it may actually cause us to drift apart. Think of the email or text you send to a coworker sitting right across from you. The instant message you send instead of picking up the phone.
This lack of connection leads to less collaboration, innovation, trust, and engagement. But companies can take active steps to build more interaction and relationships between their people, and use practices, like appreciation, to create a more integrated culture.
Join Mindi Cox, Senior Vice President of People and Great Work at O.C. Tanner, as she shares insights and best practices on how to create a more connected workforce in today’s increasingly disconnected environment.
During the webinar you’ll learn:
• The importance of human connection in the workplace today
• How to foster high-quality interactions among employees and teams
• The impact of having a connected workforce on company culture and employee performance

All systems have weaknesses – places where a determined attacker has the potential to breach security and either disrupt your organization or steal your data. Defending your organization and its digital assets starts with understanding your vulnerabilities. Therefore, cybersecurity planning must begin with a solid understanding of the places where your systems, processes, and staff are vulnerable to attack.
The single weakest part of any system is the people who use it. People are vulnerable to a wide range of exploits, including social engineering attacks such as phishing, which attempt to fool people into revealing passwords or other sensitive information, to insider threats, where employees take advantage of their position to breach security. Phishing remains the number one intrusion vector for threat actors.
Cyberattacks can come from software, hardware, and people. Business professionals must defend against attacks from all of these sources. Although it may seem out of your control, you are not helpless against cyberattacks. There are things you can do to help protect your digital assets.
Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, for a discussion about cybersecurity with Toni Flores, editor of “The Language of Cybersecurity," M.K. Palmore, Senior Federal Law Enforcement Executive for the FBI, and cyberdefense specialist, Keyaan Williams of Cyber Leadership and Strategy Solutions, LLC. We’ll discuss the current state of cyber warfare and help you understand a variety of vulnerabilities, exploits, defenses and controls.

In this webinar, you will learn 6 stages of the marathon of life, the ups and downs and how they relate to life and building a business.
Life is a roller coaster and we can't control the things that happen to us, but we are in control of the how we RESPOND. The word "responsibility" means our ability to respond to life.
"Marathon of life" and keeping ONE foot in front of the other (repeat theme)
What you BELIEVE SHAPES everything about your LIFE.
With our business- I believe that it ISN’T OUR circumstances that make us UNHAPPY (we all go through hard things).
It’s our ATTITUDE in our circumstances that really make us unhappy. Attitude is a LITTLE THING- that makes a BIG difference.
"You are in charge of your own race"
MILE 1- Expectations (they lead to disappointments- When CHANGING YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES isn’t possible - Change your PERCEPTION/BELIEF about your circumstances. )
MILE 5- Embrace your blisters (Shift from MOTIVATION to DEDICATION- an attitude of whatever it takes)
MILE 10- Let it go. (Get rid of ANYTHING that will HOLD YOU BACK. What you resist, persists.)
MILE 16- Conquer your heartbreak hill (we all hit a wall- it's not here to stop you, but PUSH you further than you would naturally push yourself- this is where you build strength)
MILE 20- No me without YOU (surrounding yourself with the right people - they will make you bitter or better, chose wisely)
MILE 26 - (finish line) - never really a finish line- it's about finding the JOY in the journey
WHEN YOU CONNECT the dots looking back at the marathon- everything was here to help you grow- same goes for life.

Innovation has quickly become an overused and distorted word. At Money20/20 Europe expect to cut through the hype, explore what measurements we can use to benchmark innovation and get to the heart of sustainable and commercial step change. A key question which has moved back up the C-Level agenda of established; banks, tech companies and payments companies is:
"How can incumbents deliver meaningful game-changing innovation?"
There are three options available for incumbents, and at Money20/20 Europe we’ll be developing deeper into each one:
1. Can organisations transform their cultures to execute true innovation internally within their organisations? (cultural transformation)
2. Perhaps tech transformation is the way forward, partnering or acquisitions to do so?
3. Or do they need to achieve business model transformation by building something entirely new outside of the organisation?
These options are being heavily debated in boardrooms throughout Europe, with a number of high profile banks recently announcing plans to build brand new subsidiaries. Some of the traditional banks, payments and tech companies are pursuing a few or all of the options while others are sitting on the fence. Which is most effective and why? What are the dynamics at play that determine success for different types of companies? Hear from the leading companies in our industry as they share their incisive insight on the successes but also the failures and the lessons learned.

A SmartTalkHR Webinar with Ben Eubanks
How do we move beyond checking the box on performance management to engage in high-impact performance activities? New insights uncovered by Lighthouse Research reveal a clear distinction between the performance management and engagement practices used at high-performing firms versus their lower-performing peers. The top-performing companies leverage a mixture of recognition, regular conversations, and other practices to create more engaging workplace experiences for their employees, ultimately driving engagement and performance to new heights.
In this #SmartTalkHR webinar, HR analyst Ben Eubanks took us through the research to discover what it can teach us about how to improve our approach to performance management. More practically, we examined some case studies and stories of companies that have modified their approach to performance management to reap a variety of rewards. You will learn:
•The deep links between engagement, performance management, and business results
•How to adapt performance management practices to improve outcomes
•Best practices from other firms that have changed their approach to performance

Do you ask for what you want? Or, do you simply take what you’re offered?
There is magic in asking. The strongest friendships, top sales teams, and most successful businesses have one thing in common – courageous people who feel the fear and still ask for what they want. People who achieve the best results are people who know how to ask outrageously. In this presentation, Linda Swindling shares tactics and strategies which help people show up powerfully and ask for what they really want. She’ll show how to spot the other people’s negotiation (DEAL) styles in order to communicate effectively and create outrageously great outcomes. Team members and their leaders will know how to negotiate the best deals at work and in life with confidence and integrity.
After attending, participants leave with strategies to:
Turn negotiations into a conversation instead of a confrontation;
Show up powerfully and communicate effectively so that others will listen;
Reach winning results with integrity and confidence;
Create significant connections with key people and attract support for their ideas;
Spot other people’s negotiation (DEAL) styles; and
Make confident decisions and embrace strategic risk taking.

It can be difficult to onboard users to new and complex interfaces and workflows. New research shows that images and video enhance understanding and retention of complex information and tasks and can even increase productivity, but software often changes quickly and requires regular updates and localization. How can we leverage the power of visual communication without having to constantly localize new visual content?
Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guest, Daniel Foster, Strategy Lead for TechSmith, for this free one-hour webinar. Daniel will show you how a Simplified User Interface helps you create powerful and useful images to help your users better understand your content, while extending its shelf life and often eliminating the need for localization.

Tune into this live panel discussion with experts across industries, fields and backgrounds for an in-depth, peer-to-peer fireside chat to answer these questions and more.

Employee engagement and retention is the #1 issue on the minds of today’s CEOs and is a top discussed topic in HR. As a result, organizations have implemented solutions and tools that help gather feedback regularly, resulting in greater access to and an accumulation of feedback data than ever before.
But the real challenge is, how can we translate the deluge of data into meaningful action? In this research-based presentation, Josh Bersin, global industry analyst, will discuss how organizations can move from “feedback to action”—and give executives, managers, and employees the tools and information they need to make work better. Join Josh as he explores the role of people and technology as partners in this change, from frequent conversations to AI to action-planning tools, and more.
