Alec Arons – Director, Risk Advisory and Tony Popanz – Manager, Risk Advisory for Experis
In 2012 stakeholder expectations relating to the role and performance of internal audit functions will continue to grow. In addition to their core activities, internal auditors are being asked to take on greater roles in understanding and assessing business, technology, financial and operational risks, and developing and retaining organizational talent. Unfortunately, while strategic expectations continue to grow, many internal audit organizations are being asked to do even more with less or at the same resource levels as previous years. To meet these demands and challenges, audit leaders are seeking innovative strategies and approaches to enhance the performance and value of internal audit.

After attending this webinar, you will be able to:

•Identify leading strategies to improve the performance of the internal audit function while aligning internal audit contributions with strategic objectives
•Leverage continuous monitoring and data analytics to improve efficiencies and risk-based execution
•Retain and build critical thinking skills and competencies that are in high demand right now

  • Identifying and Attracting Top ERP Talent Recorded: Oct 3 2013 58 mins
    The world of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) has spurred more complex and highly specialized systems with increased penetration in foreign markets, industry specialization, and functional and technical modalities. As the tools grow in complexity and continue to cross varying areas of the business, so follows the increased desire to identify and attract the ideal ERP talent that will not only fit, but flourishin your unique ERP environment.

    Identifying Top ERP Talent
    In today's corporate climate, companies must differentiate themselves in the marketplace. This starts with the organization’s most important commodity - people. Which means the days of finding functional or technical generalists are over.

    Identifying top ERP talent doesn't have to be difficult, but it does take persistence and concerted effort by Human Resources for sourcing and policy purposes, and, quite often in cases of subcontract relationships, also by Procurement. We'll discuss overarching strategies related to sourcing, social media, industry affiliation networks, and current corporate networks.

    Attracting Top ERP Talent
    Attracting top talent doesn't have to be difficult. After participating in this webinar you should be able to increase your odds of attracting the ideal candidates by being able to assess the following:

    • Is your organization being portrayed accurately and in the best possible light?
    • Are job descriptions/postings being utilized efficiently?
    • Do they accurately reflect the role, technology and thought leadership you are looking to attract?
    • Is your organization plagued with a too complex and overly long interview process?
    • Is your organization known for any ERP thought leadership or intellectual property?
    • Are innovation, ingenuity and collaboration hallmarks of your organization? Why it matters...
