    Understanding the Impact of Labor Laws on Employee Scheduling
    Dorothy Pults, Director of Product at Shiftboard Recorded: Dec 27 2018 52 mins
    Organizations that manage a shift-based (and hourly) workforce must contend with complex scheduling rules including labor laws and labor agreements. With more states and even cities supplementing US Labor laws, it can be difficult to keep up with all the changes. Many of these laws impact overtime pay, required break periods, and employee rights around a more predictable schedule–which can significantly increase your labor costs. By understanding labor laws, you can create better employee schedules, reduce overtime, and ensure compliance.

    In this webinar, you will learn:
    • What is driving changes to labor laws in states and cities across the US
    • What are the key labor laws that affect employee scheduling
    • How technology can help you automate and create better schedules

    We will also provide some practical examples to help you understand the complexity of California, Washington, Seattle, and San Francisco labor laws. These same examples are often found in collective bargaining agreements (CBAs).

    Workforce Shift Scheduling: Turning a Task into a Strategic Advantage
    Mollie Lombardi, CEO and Co-founder - Aptitude Research Partners Recorded: Dec 4 2018 62 mins
    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.

  • Bringing Customer Experience into the boardroom
    Bringing Customer Experience into the boardroom
    Amanda Clarke and Nick Bush Recorded: Nov 8 2018 60 mins
    How often have you heard senior executives state that “nothing is more important to us than our customers” or “customer satisfaction is our number one priority”? And how often have you found that there’s a yawning gap between these stated priorities of the business and the experience delivered to the customer?

    According to research company Forrester, “84% of companies aspire to be customer experience (CX) leaders, but only 1 out of 5 deliver good or great CX.” Yet, there are many examples of companies delivering outstanding success by having a clear focus on their customers’ needs and wants and providing a superior experience to deliver those needs and wants.

    As Non-Executive Directors or Consultants, we have a duty to ensure that businesses we work with deliver a great result for their customers, people and shareholders. We can do this by bringing the customers’ needs and experience more powerfully into the boardroom.

    Drawing on his many years of experience in developing strategies for companies to help them improve their customer experience, Nick Bush will illustrate the importance of genuine customer-centricity to business success and give you some tips to be an effective champion of customer experience in the boardroom.

    Learning outcomes
    At the end of this webinar you will be able to:
    1.Articulate the advantages to a business of being genuinely customer-centric
    2.Understand the distinction between customer experience and customer-centricity
    3.Understand the linkage between customer experience and employee experience
    4.Use “next practice” thinking to bring fresh perspectives into the boardroom conversation
    5.Use a process to identify the return on investment from customer experience initiatives
