  • Align your Stars: Creating Strategic Talent to Support Organizational Goals
    Align your Stars: Creating Strategic Talent to Support Organizational Goals Lori Kleiman, SPHR SHRM-SCP Recorded: May 17 2018 29 mins
    Leadership in human resources requires an understanding of the strategic initiatives and the ability to align organizational talent with success. Planning for the future needs of human capital is a key component to success as an HR executive.

    In this action-packed program, we will look at performance management through the lens of strategy and executive interactions. Attendees will walk away with an understanding of what to look for in a strategic plan, and how to craft performance discussions to ensure only those that are headed in the same direction as leadership are considered top talent.

    We will review an HR Topics proprietary tool that helps organizations evaluate who is really top talent, and what those individuals might need to move to the next level. Finally, we conclude with recommendations of how to incorporate changes to the performance conversation into the organization and impact a culture shift that will drive results.

    Learning Objectives:

    ·Identify the strategic goals and initiatives for your organization
    ·Understand the business metrics that drive success in each organization
    ·Review external opportunities that will create meaningful change for top talent
    ·Create communication tools that will impact C Suite engagement

  • Not Good Enough: The Need for a Patient-Focused Content Strategy
    Not Good Enough: The Need for a Patient-Focused Content Strategy Paul Perrotta and Scott Abel Recorded: May 17 2018 62 mins
    Being a patient in need of life-saving medical treatment can be cripplingly frightening—even the bravest humans often find their nerves of steel are no match for fear of invasive surgery or therapy for serious illnesses like heart disease or cancer. Many patients find themselves trapped on an anxiety-ridden ride made worse by the presence of poorly designed, ambiguous, frustrating and confusing healthcare content. Confusing jargon, misplaced focus, and a lack of empathy are common problems with information provided to patients during their journey toward healthfulness. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

    Join Paul Perrotta for a lively discussion with Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, about his recent battle with brain cancer. Scott will discuss the content challenges he discovered while attempting to navigate the disorganized, inconsistent, and often less-than-useful healthcare content provided to him by hospitals, doctors, laboratories, transporters, specialists, nurses, medical device companies, technicians, pharmacies, and insurance providers.

    We’ll hear Scott’s first-hand account of his experiences navigating brain surgery and cancer treatments and learn how adopting a patient-focused content strategy may help professional communicators improve healthcare information provided to those who need it. Come prepared to ask questions of Scott.

    One lucky attendee will win a free pass to Information Development World conference, November 27-29, 2018, in Menlo Park, CA. The theme of the conference is “Creating a Modern Online Technical Resource Center.”

  • Work It: The Secret for Success for Women in Business Today
    Work It: The Secret for Success for Women in Business Today Carrie Kerpen, Founder and CEO, Likeable Media Recorded: May 9 2018 60 mins
    When Carrie Kerpen co-founded Likeable Media in 2007, the social media agency was one of the first of its kind. Six years later, when she stepped up to become CEO, times had changed. The market was crowded, the competition was fierce, and she couldn’t help but compare herself to the heads of other agencies, all of whom were pretty much the same: Loud. Extroverted. Male. In order to reinvent her company to keep up with the changing times and come out on top, Carrie had only one choice: She had to work it.

    What is working it? Working it is about understanding who you are, what you want, and what you bring to the table. Working it means refusing to compare yourself to others and instead focusing on your own unique super-powers. Most important, working it is the key to unlocking the biggest secret for achieving success: There is no one right way. There is only your way.

    Key takeaways include:
    •How to use your gut to make smarter decisions, faster
    •How to tap into your network to help you avoid blind spots
    •How to make your weaknesses work for you, not against you

    The intersection between technology and human security is a difficult challenge for any organization to tackle, and although detection technologies are advancing, criminals are rapidly evolving their techniques and tactics to even greater levels of sophistication.

    - Strategies to make awareness stick

    Start Ups - Diverse By Design Juliet Eccleston, Co-founder and CEO at AnyGood? Recorded: Apr 6 2018 28 mins
    When you’re developing and refining a proposition, it can be easy to focus simply on what most people need and and how you can provide it as quickly and cost efficiently as possible. The 80/20 rule right?

    Those involved in start ups are in the unique position of being able to re-write the rule book. They can be unconstrained within their design process by traditional corporate boundaries and move beyond something that works for most, to something that is both inclusive and extraordinary.

    If you’re in an early stage start up, or are in a larger organisation and have a proposition that’s being developed and refined, tune in and I’ll share my learnings.

  • Holy Trifecta of Global Content Success
    Holy Trifecta of Global Content Success Val Swisher May 30 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Technical communication professionals revolutionized the publishing world with the introduction of structured writing and intelligent content. By adopting innovative methods, approaches, and content standards, we were able to craft and deliver content to multiple channels quickly, often with reduced effort and cost. And, we’re not done yet.

    When technical content is required for global audiences, intelligent content alone is not enough to tackle the obstacles multilingual content introduces. Combining structured intelligent technical content, terminology management, and translation memory together can solve these challenges. We call this the Holy Trifecta of Intelligent Technical Content. When all three of these are leveraged together, we can produce consistent content that is on-brand, on-message, and easy to read in every language.

    In this session, attendees will learn:

    * A clear description of intelligent content, terminology management, and translation memory

    * An understanding of how they are interrelated and why they are important to technical communication projects

    * A game plan for coordinating all three in order to create intelligent content that works, all the time, on any device, in any language

    How do we simplify complex concepts, with far less words, and content that is truly engaging?

    Motion infographics combine the best elements of minimalism, instructional design, and information architecture to produce content that people love.

    Join The Content Wrangler and Saiff Solutions for a discussion about infographics and their usefulness. We'll examine some examples of effective motion infographics, and hear from the creator of one of them.

    By attending this webinar, you'll learn:

    • What is so great about motion infographics?
    • What does it take to produce effective, engaging visual content?
    • What are the challenges?
    • How do I get started?

    Are your agents empowered to deliver outstanding service, or are they forced to navigate disjointed tools, and bound by policies or KPIs that ultimately result in frustrated customers?

    Creative Interviewing - Thinking beyond the question Lori Kleiman Jul 18 2018 7:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Recruiting has to be more then just filling a vacant position – and retaining top talent is all about making the right selection to begin 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.
    Learning Objectives:
    ·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
