Social Networking: How it Can Improve Talent Acquisition Efforts

Madeline Laurano, Talent Systems Practice Manager, The Newman Group
The buzz around social media as a recruiting tool has exploded over the past few years. In today’s uncertain economy, organizations are revamping their existing talent acquisition strategies and technology options - and social media is taking center stage. Every organization is looking for integration from their existing technology with social networking sites such as LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook.
In this webinar, Madeline will discuss how social networking sites can help organizations improve talent acquisition efforts in the following areas: strengthen employer branding; create transparency within the organization; target a geographically diverse pool of qualified candidates; drastically reduce time and costs; and onboard new hires.

    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 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.

  • 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.

    Year-over-year, the number of organizations moving from one-off communication tools to a more collaborative approach are growing dramatically.
