    Abstract:

    Got cloud? If you’re an SMB, you’ve already been there, done that. But are you really extracting maximum value out of your cloud hosted solutions?

    SMBs use an average of five hosted services, between IaaS, hosted email and collaboration and business applications – and that number is expected to climb to almost ten cloud services by next year. Everyone’s dabbling, but SMBs crave the cloud sophistication of their enterprise-grade competitors.

    - How are enterprises pivoting so quickly to respond to operational goals and drive bottom line results?
    - How can SMBs use cloud functions to serve an ever-impatient customer base?
    - Can SMBs realize the kind of growth and innovation through cloud services that enterprises expect?
    - And more importantly, how do SMB CIOs get their hands on all of those pretty, shiny enterprise toys?

    We’ll answer those questions and more with this expert panel of enterprise leaders who will share their strategies for success that SMBs can copy by using cloud services.

  • IRM is leading the debate on risk culture. Drawing upon the wealth of practical experience and expert knowledge across the institute, we have developed guidance for organisations wanting a greater understanding of their own risk culture and practical tools that can be applied to drive change.

    As seen in the business press every day, embedding risk management into an organisation to the extent that it reliably makes a difference is a difficult task. To achieve this, boards must keep how to manage risks high on their agenda, and to continue asking themselves, whether they have the right culture, people and processes.

    What do we mean by risk culture?

    Risk culture is a term describing the values, beliefs, knowledge, attitudes and understanding about risk shared by a group of people with a common purpose, in particular the employees of an organisation. This applies to all organisations from private companies, public bodies, governments to not-for-profits.

    What does a good risk culture look like?

    An effective risk culture is one that enables and rewards individuals and groups for taking the right risks in an informed manner.
  • With over half of companies not feeling well enough prepared for an IT disaster according to recent research, Ian Daly of Plan B Disaster Recovery will be sharing his best practices on how to build a DR solution you can trust. In this webinar we’ll cover:

    - What counts as an IT disaster?
    - What are the common causes?
    - How can you better prepare for an IT disaster?
    - Testing – what should you be testing and how often?
    - What level of reliability should you be striving to achieve?
    - How to maintain trust in your disaster recovery solution
  • James McAlister has been developing and facilitating exercises for over 30 years. He was the lead author for the BCI Good Practice Guidelines 2013 Chapter 06: Validation, which focuses on exercising. The webinar will introduce an exercise model and simple techniques to enable participants to conduct their own effective exercises.
  • With business continuity planning covering everything from natural disasters to building infrastructure, resilient businesses will have thoroughly tested IT backup in place for their critical applications, such as failover connectivity and secondary datacentres.

    But what happens if the resilience of the underlying IT is untested? Trends such as BYOD, Cloud and Mobility are creating new challenges for IT, particularly with maturing technology, where the risk to information security and business continuity could be high. New applications that have been integrated into existing systems can expose multiple points of failure as data is transferred in different formats between different systems.

    In this webinar, Lucas and Mark will be discussing how to ensure that in today’s interconnected business, all unforeseen IT eventualities are mitigated before the crucial BCP test. Here’s how:

    - Establish a strong Quality Assurance process that drives consistency across your organisation
    - Regularly assess the overall quality of your IT systems to highlight any risks and potential points of failure
    - Ensure that IT is central to all decisions involving the adoption of new technology across the organisation

    This session is essential for not only understanding the practicalities of safeguarding the resiliency of your IT but also how to develop underlying controls to prevent new ways of working spiralling into business continuity failure.
  • This webinar is based on actual experiences gained in conducting BCM tests under varying conditions and environments, including ICT as well as Business and Incident Management testing across a number of industrial sectors. During the webinar We will be discussing the lessons learnt from some of the following topics relating to recent tests:
    - The challenges of Testing in Africa
    - Relocation testing, announced and unannounced
    - Barriers to effective relocation
    - Environmental, political and geographic obstacles
    - Expectations and Cynicism
    - Social media
    - Component testing, integrating both technical and business challenges
    - The Crisis Management Simulation
    - Real time Scenario based testing – pros and cons
    - Lessons, a snapshot
  • Representative IT DR testing is essential to demonstrate that the capability will meet the businesses recovery requirements and justify the investment in the ITDR. However the challenges with ITDR testing and shortfalls within the underlying programme often leads to tests that prove little, give the organisation a false sense of security, deny any opportunity to improve the capability and ultimately put the organisation at risk.

    In this Webinar we will explore the challenges associated with ITDR testing, how to overcome them and the pointers to the issues in the underlying programme.

  • How to deliver better, leaner field service Recorded: Sep 25 2014 32 mins
    Mary Bohney, Director, Engineering Field Services Practice and Joe Lampinen, Director, Engineering APG
    Do you deploy technical field service talent for repairs, upgrades, installations, remediation, break-fixes or calibration of medical devices? If you do, you are no doubt managing increasing administration, compliance and regulatory requirements, alongside the need to find talented engineers to do the work on time and on budget.

    As a supplier to one of the most heavily regulated industries in the world, the quality and timeliness of the technical support your customers receive is critical—not just when things go wrong, but every single day for routine tasks too.

    Recalls, product upgrades, government mandates and scheduled quality checks or repairs all take significant resources to staff and project manage. As compliance requirements and product complexity increase, so too does the task of properly installing and maintaining the medical devices that millions of patients rely upon each year across the US.

  • 4 Reasons to Improve Employee Engagement Recorded: Jun 5 2013 61 mins
    Anthony Raja Devadoss, VP - KellyOCG, APAC & Thomas McCoy, Director - The Employee Engagement Institute
    With all the numbers and statistics that pass across executives’ desks, it’s no wonder the employee engagement score feels like one drop in a very large ocean.

    But it’s not. Employee engagement is a business measure like no other.

    No matter what your legacy issues may be, or what your employee engagement results have been in the past, it is possible to create a highly engaged workforce quickly, easily and without disproportionate investment in time, money or technology.

    Engagement is NOT an annual survey. Engagement is frequent, relevant and meaningful feedback and recognition. And the right tools will deliver exactly this. In this webcast, we will share 4 reasons to improve employee engagement as well as tips to get you started.
  • Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go - The Career Development Imperative Recorded: Mar 14 2013 61 mins
    Dr. Beverly Kaye and Jason S. Morga, PHR
    Study after study confirms that career development is the single most powerful tool managers have for driving retention, engagement, productivity and results. Nevertheless, it’s frequently the thing that gets sidelined. When asked, the number one reason managers give is that they just don’t have time. Don’t have time for the meetings, the forms, and the administrative hoops.

    But there’s a better way. And it’s surprisingly simple: frequent short conversations with employees about their career goals and options, integrated seamlessly into the normal course of business. Kaye and Morga will identify three broad types of conversations that have the power to motivate employees more deeply than any well-intentioned development event or process during this webcast. These conversations will increase employee’s awareness of their strengths, weaknesses and interests; point out where their organization and their industry are headed; and help them pull all of that together to design their own up-to-the-minute, personalized career paths.

  • The Autonomous, Empowered and Highly Virtual Workforce Recorded: Feb 7 2013 61 mins
    Lance J. Richards - GPHR, SPHR, and Megan Raftery | Kelly Services
    The changing dynamics of the modern workplace are causing employees to closely evaluate career choices and their options for advancement. The idea of a career-for-life with one employer has certainly waned, but it is not entirely dead. At the other extreme, many employees now believe it is in their best interest to seek out opportunities with multiple employers, building their network and skill set along the way. This volatility in the labor market seems to be the new norm, and it poses special challenges for both employees seeking to advance their skills, and employers wishing to retain the best talent.

    Join us as we explore the changing attitudes of workers surrounding job mobility, career progression and work-life balance as part of a shift to a more autonomous, empowered and highly virtual workforce.
  • Attracting, Retaining and Managing Top Talent Recorded: Dec 13 2012 45 mins
    Teresa Carroll - SVP, Centers of Excellence & GM
    The 2012 Kelly Global Workforce Index shows that most workers feel under-valued, and frequently think about resigning—and this is a major issue for employers as they seek greater productivity from their people.

    Employees across the globe have experienced unprecedented economic turmoil, and they are restless. The findings of the 2012 KGWI report suggest that organizations seeking to attract and retain the most highly talented candidates need to do more than just focus on their HR performance; brand recognition and corporate culture are central to the way they are perceived in the broader labor market.

    This webcast will help employers who are looking to increase retention and find solutions to their talent management challenges by helping them understand:
    - Employees seek movement to gain skills and develop
    - Happiness at work is linked to the meaning they derive from it
    - Meaning at work is largely about an individual’s ability to excel
  • The Leadership Disconnect Recorded: Nov 20 2012 55 mins
    Megan Raftery - Sr. Manager, Workforce Research & Intelligence and Lance J. Richards, GPHR, SPHR - VP Office of Innovation
    The vast majority of workers have not had an opportunity to fully digest the various academic theories of leadership, but they do see it in practice every day, and they have well-defined views about what constitutes good leadership. Our latest workforce research reveals that globally, just 38% of respondents are satisfied with their current management’s leadership style. Given the importance of rock-solid leadership in our current business climate and the resources that businesses devote to enhancing their leadership capabilities, this is a worrying gap for employers and employees alike.

    Join us as we take a closer look into the issue of leadership in the contemporary workplace from the employee perspective. Explore with us the way that workers think about the quality, direction, and style of leadership, and the degree to which they share the goals of those who head their organizations.
  • The STEM Talent Gap Recorded: Oct 18 2012 48 mins
    Tim McAward, VP, Centers of Excellence - Engineering and Megan Raftery, Sr. Manager, Workforce Research & Intelligence
    They may be relatively small in number, but they pull more than their fair share of economic weight. Amid higher unemployment and economic turmoil, we need them now more than ever. STEM jobs (roughly 97 occupations that fall into the science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields) are part of a critical cycle of economic growth. They are vital for national competitiveness, fueling the economy and creating more downstream jobs. Unfortunately, there are a number of factors that are inhibiting new entrants to STEM fields and luring existing participants away to others. Learn more about these forces and what employers can do today to turn the tide.
  • Key Findings, KGWI: The Rise of Social Media for Personal and Professional Use Recorded: Sep 12 2012 33 mins
    Todd Wheatland, VP, Head of Thought Leadership & Marketing and Megan Raftery, Sr. Manager, Workforce Research & Intelligence
    The 2012 Kelly Global Workforce Index shows that most workers feel under-valued, and frequently think about resigning—and this is a major issue for employers as they seek greater productivity from their people.

    The explosion of social media across the globe has transformed personal communications and opened up myriad of opportunities for interaction across communities, regions and peer groups. Along with the opportunities come challenges, nowhere more so than in the workplace. The spontaneous and free-ranging character of social media can sit uneasily in a work setting.

    Understanding and managing the workplace issues associated with social media is an evolving discipline. However, it is clear that attitudes toward social media are far from uniform. Generational, occupational and regional variances shape the way that people embrace these platforms.

    A fundamental question is whether there is a place that social media can, or should, occupy for individuals in the contemporary workplace. Views on this are divided.
