Explore ways to change the process from compliance to communication to drive your organization forward.
Having a solid employee engagement strategy can turn current employees into brand ambassadors, amplifying your recruitment efforts year-round. Studies show that happier, more content employees do better work, increase productivity and help recruit great talent to the organization.
In fact, companies with employee engagement programs achieve 26% greater year-over-year increase in annual company revenue, compared those who do not have formal programs (Aberdeen, October 2015).
Every company, of course, has unique challenges and attracts different talent to its workplace. That’s why your strategy to engage employees should be tailored to your company size, culture, products and services, and industry.
-How employee engagement positively influences company culture and reputation
-How to weave company core values, mission and culture into all your messaging
-How to turn employees into brand ambassadors to tell ideal-fit job seekers why your company is a great place to work

There has always been change in our profession. We originally started by implementing disaster recovery programmes. Soon after that, the businesses realized that the people aspect of recovery was needed as well. The results were the beginning of business continuity programmes. DR and BC have worked together almost two decades now with great success. We are now at a major transformation point again. Business continuity is now sharing more information and interacting more with security and compliance groups.
This session will go over what most of us already have in place, what we will need to add, and how all three groups interface together to provide a new resilience program for your environment. The goal of this session is to show the interactions between risk management, business continuity, security and compliance that form the components of a resilience programme.
Business continuity can be a high pressured role at times, with many decisions having to be made under that pressure. It is important to be able to manage it effectively and so ensure the right decision is taken, whatever the circumstances. In this webinar, Paul Breed MCBI presents a decision making model which includes:
Information - (Fact, Assumption, Gaps - urgency)
Threat and Risk Assessment - based on Identity, Capability, Intention
Development of a Working Strategy - that dovetails the Threat and Risk Assessment
Options - ideally from a predetermined tactical menu that reduces time critical decision making
Action - based on the agreed option together with contingencies
Review - constantly review the decision especially when new information comes to light

Building a high-performing sales team comes with its own set of challenges. It differs in many ways from hiring for other departments and understanding what to focus on can be the difference between success and failure.
But how do find the best candidates? And how can you get them up and running while also making sure they are completely knowledgeable on your product or service?
View this on-demand version where CEO Mikita Mikado and the CEO of Close.io, Steli Efti will discuss:
-Finding the right sales talent for your business
-How to interview and onboard candidates in the least amount of time
-How to develop good processes for sending HR documents
Effective organizational resilience depends upon the ability of senior management teams to predict and therefore adapt to rapidly changing external threats. The lead time once enjoyed by decision makers to analyse and respond is ever decreasing. Traditional planning methods, do not allow leaders to anticipate global challenges as they generally focus inwards and rely on historical data.
The presentation provides some basic advice on how you could use horizon scanning methodology to help predict future risks to your organization.

Join us for Part 3 of this compelling 4-part series on mobile data. After all, it’s not news that when it comes to apps, consumers can be very fickle, engaging for one download and then abandoning the app. In many ways, an app marketer’s real job only begins after the install. Boosting engagement metrics and increasing the lifetime value of app users is what really matters more than ever.
A compelling value prop and smart design are necessary but not sufficient to keeping people engaged. You also need to apply data and technology on an ongoing continuous basis to strengthen and sustain your user relationships, and in turn boost the LTV of the average app user by extending both their “lifetime” and their value. Furthermore, being proactive about managing churn, and retargeting users outside of the app itself, can mean the difference between success and failure.
Join this exclusive VB Live event as experts from retail, hospitality and on-demand services demonstrate how to:
* Use the right technology to maximize LTV of app users
* Optimize each user engagement to avoid app abandonment and churn
* Learn acquisition-engagement tactics such as: pre- and post-install segmentation, organic growth, retargeting and reward-based acquisition
* Aaron Price, SVP of Marketing, Expedia
* Rob Willey, VP of Marketing, TaskRabbit
* Jillian Burnnett, Director of Customer Success, mParticle
* Stewart Rogers, Director of Marketing Technology, VentureBeat

At TechGirlz, we've spent the last decade peeling back the onion and found that role models in the workforce will not fix the problem, mentors will not fix the problem, improving the pipeline at college or even high school will not fix the problem. Techgirlz has identified that by engaging girls in technology in middle school via curriculum designed to inspire these girls and delivered by members of the industry, we can actually make headway on increasing girls and eventually women in technology.
However, what happens when we inspire a generation of young girls to consider technology as a career but don't have a plan to keep them engaged? Once the fire has been lit, how are we planning to keep these girls interested as they weave their way through high school, college and the start of their careers to ensure that these efforts are not wasted.
In the first half of this talk, Tracey Welson-Rossman, founder of TechGirlz, will discuss the TechGirlz methodology that has successfully lit the technology fire in over 5000 middle school girls. The second half of the talk, presented by Cristina Martin Greysman, Sr. Director, Partner Experience at Sungard Availability Services, will focus on ideas for keeping these girls in the tech pipeline throughout for their entire careers.
Are you a woman in technology or perhaps an organization looking to create a welcoming space for a diverse workforce? The statistics show a dismal picture, only 25% of the computing workforce are women, 3 % are African-American , 5% are Asian and 1% are Hispanic women.

This talk includes tips and suggestions drawn from real life experience on how to survive and thrive in this field and what companies can do to create a diversified workforce.
Sushila has 20 year's experience in computing infrastructure, business and security and has worked in a number of diverse areas — telecommunications, risk analysis, credit card fraud, and has served as a legal expert witness. Sushila worked with the insurance industry in Europe and America on methods of underwriting e-risk insurance based on ISO27001.

The hi-tech industry is highly competitive when it comes to employing top talent. As technology continues to advance, so does the demand for top-notch employees.

How are you going to reach new players in new regions with your current team and budget? It’s no easy feat, and can be an expensive risk for a new game. You’re stuck between the costs and workload of meeting the needs of new players, and the risks of taking on more infrastructure than your game can support. You might think the promise of the cloud will save the day, but moving from a centralized infrastructure to the cloud can be a massive undertaking, with lots of pitfalls and hidden costs.
Join us for a deep dive into how some publishers are pushing the limits of technology to deliver great multiplayer experiences globally, without having to scale up their server footprint, or launch a painful, time consuming migration to a cloud infrastructure.

* What risks to look out for in terms of network stability and reach in different parts of the world
* How to mitigate internet roadblocks from a centralized data center

People aren't trees. We don't attempt to grow wherever we are planted. Instead, we uproot ourselves and find places where we know we can grow. To retain skilled talent, you'll need to develop and challenge them. Join us to get some new talent management and recruiting ideas that will lead to deeper roots, reduced turnover and strong company culture.
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
