In this episode recorded during LGBTQ+ History Month in the UK, the discussion charts the changes and progress of Pride, Diva Media Group's plans for Lesbian Visibility Week and how organisations can get involved.

    Driving engagement with L&D: Lakeland’s story with Fuse
    James Marsh, HRreview; Suzanne Allen, Head of People, Lakeland; Sam Lawton, Customer Success Manager, Fuse Universal Recorded: Jan 30 2020 62 mins
    Forward-looking businesses are increasingly recognising the vital importance of an equally forward-looking learning strategy. It’s no longer a luxury; L&D is rapidly being recognised as a major driver that can boost engagement, staff retention, and business results.

    This is certainly the case for Kitchen and homeware business Lakeland, who wanted to bring their whole business together in one space and help drive communication between their teams . After adopting Fuse’s mobile-first Integrated Learning Platform, Lakeland saw their engagement rate soar to 75.8%.

    This major shift from creating resources instead of courses has been a winning strategy for Lakeland. But how did they do it?

    That’s just what they’ll be sharing. In this webinar, you’ll learn:

    • How Lakeland have brought their community and people together by opening up communications
    • Their sharing of best practices – how a great idea in one store is shared quickly across their retail network to maximise opportunities for increasing sales
    • The power and value of user-generated content from Lakeland’s own passionate experts
    • How better product knowledge and content lets Lakeland sell products through stories rather than features

    In fact, webinar is probably the wrong term for this – in reality, this will be a live interactive case study about how Lakeland are working to deliver real behavioural changes and break down the barriers to digital adoption. Their employees had always wanted to share knowledge; now they can and do.

    Webinar: What is Purpose?
    Simon Scott-Nelson - Air Marketing Recorded: Dec 19 2019 48 mins
    Reasons to Attend:

    Leading yourself or others, it doesn’t matter. At the end of each day, we are all looking for meaning and purpose for what and why we get out of bed every morning.

    It's an important aspect that impacts our daily lives.

    As a business and leader, you play an instrumental role in helping your employees finding purpose, and it should start with your business being 'purpose-driven' instead on 'product/solution' driven.

    Many employees feel that they are just working for a paycheck and aren’t contributing to the greater good of society.

    Without a sense of purpose, it’s difficult for employees to connect with their work and their company. Working with a sense of purpose boosts employee motivation, productivity, morale, and overall job satisfaction.

    Key Takeaways

    - What is purpose or meaning?
    - How do I find it?
    - How can I help others to find it?
    - Why should I care?

    Highspot Recorded: Dec 18 2019 20 mins
    Modern product marketing strategies serve to drive revenue, customer satisfaction, and retention. The days of simply packaging features into messaging and content are over. Product marketing must now enable all customer-facing teams to have effective customer conversations that will drive strategic growth. Failing to do so renders the rest of your corporate strategy meaningless.

    With the stakes higher than ever before, how can you turn your enablement strategy into action?

    In this keynote, Highspot CEO Robert Wahbe shares the three new pillars of product marketing success:

    –Enable your entire company to uplift the customer experience
    –Guide your teams and your partners to master what to know, what to say, and what to show at scale
    –Put analytics to work so your metrics matter in driving business decisions

    Now is the time to enable your company to master the customer conversation.

    Series Six, Episode Seven: Tales from a female AI entrepreneur...
    Julia Streets Recorded: Dec 18 2019 36 mins
    Tales from a female AI entrepreneur, capital raising, data bias, the ‘heroine’s journey’ and practical ways men can support

    In this episode host Julia Streets interviews Dr Catriona Wallace, a leading authority in artificial intelligence and Founder & Executive Director of fintech firm Flamingo.AI, the second only woman-led businesses ever to list on the Australian Stock Exchange.

    Recorded from Dr Wallace’s boardroom, we explore diversity and AI bias, war stories from her capital raising experience, Dr Wallace’s ‘Heroine’s Journey’ laying out the important stages of the female lifespan and what they mean for men and women alike, offering practical tips for ‘good men’ in supporting gender inclusion.

    At a time when New South Wales is in the midst of raging bushfires, Dr Wallace shares profoundly personal experiences of the destruction of millions of hectares of farmland in Australia – including her own – and the role that disruptive technologies can play to tackle climate change.

    We think this is a perfectly (and deliberately) timed episode for the holiday season: ideal for road trips; family discussions and general downtime, as much of this conversation challenges us to think about the financial services D&I discussion more deeply and beyond into the reality of our world at large.

    We hope you enjoy this episode and from us all, thank you for all your support. We wish you all a very happy and healthy festive season and look forward to returning with more interviews with industry leaders next year. Thank you for listening.

    • they’ve had problems with your company in the past - or
    • your lead time is too long

    Where Talent Acquisition and HR Need AI
    Tannen Ellis-Graham, co-founder of CareerKarma 360; Chris Murdock, co-founder IQTalent Partners Feb 19 2020 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Existing methods are not up to the challenges of talent in 2020. Organizations can’t find enough good people. And finding people is challenging enough; finding the right people even more challenging; and keeping them not easy either.

    You've heard of AI, but don't know exactly what it is, as well as if it can help with these challenges.

    In this webinar, you’ll see how embedding AI into the employee lifecycle, starting with the candidate experience, could dramatically improve the way people are hired, trained, and managed. Adapting AI has helped leading organizations achieve a 35 percent decrease in time-to-hire, 50 percent more requisitions managed per recruiter, and an 81 percent increase in internal hires, among other benefits.

    Join this webinar to learn about using AI for:
    — Making career sites more personal
    — Finally improving the “candidate experience”
    — Allowing recruiters to match jobs with people, based on job candidates' skills (not just the job they have now)
    — Giving people growth opportunities instead of having them quit
    — Improving diversity

    Succession Planning
    Tom Buck, Owner and Managing Director of the Calder Group Feb 27 2020 10:00 am UTC 45 mins
    How to pass on the wealth you create in your lifetime is becoming harder to plan and manage. From multiple marriages, to divorce and taxes, your estate can easily end up in the hands of someone you never thought could inherit.

    We look at some of the challenges that can affect succession planning and look at the reason why a simple will fails to deliver for the modern family!

    In this informative webinar, we explore the issues that arise and take a look at some of the solutions we use with our clients to ensure their wishes become reality on death

    We will also look at the issues that surround property ownership and investment when it comes to succession planning. How the way in which you hold and maintain your investment properties can actually provide different options of mitigating taxes on death, while being able to maintain control of the rental income as well as the capital and ensure your lifestyle remains unaffected.

    Finally, there is the myth of the Million Pound Inheritance! As we enter the tax year where the threshold for your estate before Inheritance Tax reaches the promised seven figure sum, we explore the reality. How being successful could actually cost your estate £140,000 in death duties and how the ownership of certain assets, or assets held in the wrong name can cost your children thousands of pounds.

    Webinar: The Number 1 Reason You Are Not Hitting Quota

    Let’s face it… selling isn't easy. Sometimes it seems easier to lure a ravenous lion with a lettuce leaf than hit your monthly sales target. Even the best, most seasoned salespeople will feel pressurized from time to time and result in them not hitting the target. It’s this pressure that spawns excuses – excuses that detract attention away from a salesperson’s performance (or lack of it).

    I hate hearing excuses; it feels like people are trying to blame others rather than accepting their own failings. But what are the top excuses you’ll hear from a salesperson?
  • What’s the Big Deal About Candidate Experience Anyway?
    What’s the Big Deal About Candidate Experience Anyway?
    Christine Rowe, Head of Human Resources at Vault Consulting LLC Mar 17 2020 7:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    There are so many buzzwords that are floating around the HR/Recruitment world. War on Talent, Candidate Experience, Employee Experience, that is can be tough to understand and sift through what really counts.

    So, what about Candidate Experience? Does it really matter? In short yes, it is a critical part of how a company can recruit and yes, retain talent. From the moment you connect with a candidate you are building a life long relationship with that person, whether you hire them or not. Candidates do not expect to get every job they apply or connect to; however, they are quick to remember a poor experience. Creating a strong candidate experience (i.e. it’s not the 90’s or even the 2010’s anymore) is critical to a strong recruitment or talent acquisition strategy.

    In this webinar you will understand what it means to have a strong candidate experience, how to up your candidate experience (and believe it or not – it’s not as difficult or expensive as you think) and be aware of some of the pitfalls you can avoid that can inadvertently be giving your company a bad reputation.

  • Childcare & the Gender Pay Gap – Baby Steps or a Giant Leap?
    Childcare & the Gender Pay Gap – Baby Steps or a Giant Leap?
    James Marsh, HRreview; Denise Priest, Director of Employer and Strategic Partnerships at Bright Horizons Apr 30 2020 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Research (published by LSE, London School of Economics) suggests there is stronger evidence for the impact of childcare and in-work benefits on closing the gender pay gap, than there is for parental leave and pay policies. OECD evidence also suggests affordable quality childcare is the main driver in achieving better female labour market participation outcomes.

    What are leading employers doing to make it easier for talented and experienced working parents to ‘have it all’? How do you keep career on track and yet be the parent you want to be? And is helping with childcare the glaringly obvious solution that employers might be overlooking?

    By April 2020, we’ll have data from three rounds of Gender Pay Gap reporting. It’s clear that truly closing the gap will take decades to achieve and there are some home truths in the data: it’s not an homogenous picture. The gender pay gap among all full-time employees stands at 8.9%, little changed from 2018 while for age groups under 30 years, the gender pay gap for full-time employees is now close to zero. It is at childbearing years that the gap sets in and never closes.

    At 72% the female employment rate in 2019 was the highest seen since comparable records began in 1971 (52.8%) and yet, as the recent Government Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy consultation document on Family Support summed it up: ‘Women who have children are more likely to: leave employment; reduce their hours of work; move into lower paid roles; and move into roles which are not commensurate with their qualifications and experience. In short, it appears that mothers are trading-off pay and career progression for increased flexibility.’

    Join James Marsh, our panel of employers and thought leaders including Denise Priest, Director of Employer and Strategic Partnerships at Bright Horizons, for an insightful and lively discussion.
