Entrepreneurs contribute significantly to the world economy; the new businesses they create can drive innovation and will often result in the formation of new jobs. Yet almost 60% of UK businesses will fail within 5 years. New research from OPP shows the strengths, and possible blind spots, that people of each type will typically have when operating as entrepreneurs. If entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs are aware of these, it can give them a head start.
John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership at OPP, will present the results of the research, showing how MBTI type relates to your entrepreneurial orientation, and sharing tools for you to work out just how entrepreneurial your own (or your client’s) organisation is.

When recruiting people do you look for skills or potential? Talent is something that needs to be honed and continually developed and skills can always be learnt and improved. In an ever changing world organisations need people who can be flexible, continually learn and are able to take new ideas forward quickly. In short attracting people with a growth mindset and therefore learning potential will ensure your organisation is future fit. But even that’s not enough, you need to stand out against other companies as the place to work, a place where people will not only grow but be happy too.
“Great vision without great people is irrelevant.”- Jim Collins, Good to Great
Not that long ago, talent acquisition was referred to as the recruiting department – with no more responsibility than reviewing resumes, screening candidates, and organizing candidate interviews. The phrase “talent acquisition” is now mainstream and widely accepted by companies of all sizes.
Now you and your organization, your employee brand ambassadors, have a story to tell, one that draws people to your organization now, and in the future, so what’s YOUR STORY?
This presentation will identify how individual communication impacts the brand, how brands communicate and what it all means for recruiting and employer branding. This session will demonstrate how to utilize the best search engines and sourcing tools available today to find biographical information as well as lists of names of top talent on the web. We will explore a variety of search tools as well as essential techniques for leveraging social media sites to attract and locate the candidates that you need to fill your toughest requisitions.
There is a broad end-to-end focus needed; one which stretches from building a strategic employment brand, through sourcing and recruiting, all the way to onboarding top people.

Segmenting the Workforce
Creating, Validating and Maintaining an Employment Brand
Managing and Cultivating Candidate Relationships
Take up of SPL is building slowly but it is still low. If we are serious about unleashing the economic potential of women, then it’s not enough just to look at women as leaders. It also needs to be OK for men to be carers. Take up of SPL is therefore a key indicator. And one that enlightened employers have already understood is VITAL to their gender diversity aims.
In Spring 2017 My Family Care conducted a qualitative research study aimed at understanding not only WHY take-up is still relatively low, but to HOW SPL is being used by fathers and partners, WHAT impact it has had on their lives and careers as well as WHAT needs to be done to improve take up.
In this webinar we’ll be sharing our findings and inviting leading employer panellists to comment on the experiences within their organisations.

The schedule is at the center of life for many organizations. Who needs to be where and when is the foundational construct of running a business. And particularly in organizations with large amounts of hourly staff, or multiple shifts, making sure people show up as needed can be the difference between productivity and standstill.
In today’s world, simply executing an accurate and effective schedule is not enough. Scheduling has become a strategic element of the employer employee relationship, and a key translation point between business strategy and execution. By using tools to make the scheduling process more manageable for administrators, more interactive for employees, and more informative for the business, organizations can leverage the time and investment it takes to create schedules to deliver value far beyond the tactical.
Join Mollie Lombardi, Co-founder of Aptitude Research Partners, she explores the impact of automation integration mobile tools in the consumerization of technology are impacting not only how organizations create schedules in all environments from simple to highly complex and regulated, but the user experience for both employees and executives.

People often associate stress with workload, but issues that arise outside work are often the biggest triggers and contributors to mental ill-health – troubled relationships, financial worries or family problems. We spend so much of our time working that it’s almost inevitable we cannot leave our problems at the office door.
But is it fair for employers to ask questions about individuals’ personal circumstances? And is it appropriate or practical to offer support?
A range of wellbeing experts and HR practitioners explore these issues, debate best practice and provide practical guidance on a number of topics which could include:
•Types of stress and how they manifest at work.
•The implications of stress at work, and why work-life balance is an increasingly anachronistic idea.
•Ways of dealing with stress – should employers be proactive or stay out of it?
•How to equip employees to deal with stress at work (i.e Neyber)
STATE OF THE NATION – The DNA of Financial Wellbeing, 2017
Key findings. The last 12 months have seen great progress, however recent economic changes have bought us some big challenges and we will need to stay focused.
Encouragingly, employee wellbeing is starting to be recognised. Financial worries are still employee’s biggest concern.
Many employers are starting to think about their employee finances more broadly.
It is astonishing to think that as many as three quarters (75%) of professionals aged 25-34 already feel worn out by the type of work and the environment in which they work in. And as many as 57% of all professionals feel that way.
The threat of burnout is real and immediate. It is not reserved for middle age or later life. In fact, last year in the UK, younger workers took more days off work due to stress than older workers (roughly 65% of 16-24 young workers compared to only 24% of older workers).
In April 2017, Talking Talent conducted the study ‘working on burnout’ which looks to challenge all types of professional organisations to prioritise the importance of the wellbeing issues experienced by their employees in the workplace and at home. The research highlights the very real impact on individual and organisational performance when the subjective wellbeing of an employee is poor, and the risk of burnout is high.
In this webinar we’ll be sharing the findings and insightful commentary on what triggers burnout with professionals in UK businesses, identifying trends across family set-ups, industries and seniority of position, as well as offering key insights for employers on preventative approaches to burnout.
You’ll hear from Rob Bravo, Director of Wellbeing at Talking Talent on successful strategies to support employee’s holistic wellbeing, as well as leading employer panellists and an industry expert sharing their experiences and perspectives.
