    But what role does technology play in a workforce that is dominated by heavy machinery and workers who don’t sit in front of computers all day?

    In this webinar, Sean Fennell (CEO) and Julie Currid (COO) of Initiafy discuss the challenges blue collar workers face when it comes to technology and how companies might adapt their offerings to overcome these hurdles.

  • The latest research shows that HR and Talent staff are struggling to deliver the reports to support their business colleagues. One of the reasons behind this is the multiple and disparate HR systems environment. Additionally, expectations are growing that HR will deliver strategic and analytic insights from their data, when in reality most struggle to progress beyond operational reporting.

    Join this webinar where our experts will help you understand why this happens. Then see a completely new way of working with data and reporting, to solve these foundational issues and deliver analytics from your existing data.

    We will show you a reverse of the traditional ‘dashboarding system’ where the system finds insight through intelligence to uncover what’s important and relevant for you…and best of all, it delivers the findings in English.

  • The workforce landscape is rapidly changing – the rise of the contingent worker dramatically enforces this. In Western Europe, up to a third of workers are not full-time or part-time employees.

    Instead, they are contractors, freelancers, temps, agency workers, outside vendors working on projects, or other types of contingent workers.

    In this session, learn about the seismic shift away from permanent staff; what is driving individuals to take up non-permanent positions, what this means to HR, and how best to manage and integrate in to a total workforce strategy.
  • Learning cannot be separated from work. Informal education frameworks put development at the centre of an organisation. This creates a culture of learning that will result in more productivity, less churn, retention of existing talent, attracting top talent, and most importantly ROI.

    This webinar will examine ‘best practice’ for in house learning, the key areas of developing a truly effective learning solution and looking at case studies, the lessons learned and the pitfalls to avoid.

  • While most parents would be delighted if their offspring wanted to become an accountant, lawyer or even an actuary, they may be less encouraging if their son or daughter said they wanted to be a hacker. This is the negative manifestation of working in the cyber security industry that is often portrayed in the media. The reality is very different, with careers in cyber security providing fantastic opportunities that are hugely varied, really challenging and help to do good for society.

    Structured career paths provide an opportunity to progress quickly with jobs in large audit and accountancy firms through to small specialist boutique start-ups, as well as the chance for international work and creating new businesses. In addition, the whole industry is very diverse and is looking for people with a very wide range of talents.

    The problem is how do we communicate this to people who may be interested in the industry? Just as important for young people, how do we get to the influencers; their parents and their careers advisors to understand what an exciting place the cyber security industry is to work in and what they can expect in terms of the types of company they could work for and their salary expectations.

    The problem can be partially solved through education, information and support from businesses working together with a consistent message designed to encourage the very best people into the industry.

    In this presentation, Ian Glover from CREST will look at the challenges of attracting the brightest young people into careers that traditionally have an image problem and providing a strong career path once they are in. In particular, he will focus on the importance of properly-run internships and Government funded initiatives to educate and inform.

  • In times of increasing employee choice and the ‘portfolio career’, does HR think about the talent in our organisations as consumers just as our marketing teams would view our customers and clients? Recent research by the Henley Business School suggests not. Professor Nick Kemsley, non-exec Director of Head Light and Co-director at Henley Business School Centre for HR Excellence will share the findings from research from Henley Business School. He’ll explain why he thinks many talent management models are based on out-dated assumptions and that a real shift of HR thinking and action needs to be taking place now.

  • We are approaching a time when your business will have to manage the needs and behaviours of four different generations all at once. And make no mistake, each generation behaves very differently.

    A multi-generational workplace is inevitably a complicated one. People of different ages typically have different perspectives on the world. They disagree on the most fundamental issues. They dress differently, eat differently and travel differently. And more pertinently, they work differently.

    Using the latest research, insights and opinions available, Russell Beck, Impellam’s Head of Consulting, examines the challenges inherent within a multi-generational workforce.

    He’ll be focusing on the three generations that are currently the most abundant at work; Baby Boomers, Generation X and Generation Y.

  • There is no better marketing for your organisation than a good candidate experience. It reinforces positive perceptions of your business, as well as setting the stage for high levels of employee engagement and performance.

    Meanwhile, a bad candidate experience can be more than a missed opportunity to engage new employees. It can also severely reduce a company’s ability to hire quality talent in the long term – and, because each candidate is also a potential customer, a bad experience can even hit the bottom line.

    Please join Futurestep, alongside Talk Talk and Fonterra, as we discuss how the right talent acquisition strategy and process can significantly enhance a company’s competitive advantage.

    During the webinar, we will explore the impact on your overall brand of key candidate interactions, how to develop a better understanding of candidate touch-points, and some of the innovative strategies developed to collect candidate perceptions and manage the total candidate experience.

  • The talent in your organizations – the front line employees who are usually paid hourly - perform incredibly valuable work. They are often the first employees seen by the customer. They’re the seasonal or part-time employees who help the business during really busy times. Selecting, engaging and retaining an hourly workforce is critical to organizational success. And hiring hourly employees isn’t exactly the same as salaried staff recruitment. In fact, it can be harder and take more strategy.

    Join the Findly team and Sharlyn Lauby, author of the blog HR Bartender, as we discuss what it takes to find the best hourly talent for your business. You will benefit from Sharlyn’s seasoned views on:

    - What today’s hourly workforce wants

  • Many UK companies highlight that one of their main recruitment issues is the centralisation and standardisation of their overall recruitment process. If these processes are not standardised companies can lose not only time and money, but the opportunity to locate and hire the right personnel. Even the most simple things, like the word ‘hire’ can have a variety of definitions within the same company causing confusion and inefficiencies. Software can help solve these issue and structure the recruitment process so all information is in one place and there is a streamlined process to find, hire, and retain top talent.
    This webinar will take you through the key stages of centralizing your recruitment process, explain the benefits of standardisation and examine a case study, the process they went through and some of the lessons learned.
