  • B2B data has entered its third era – but has yours?
    B2B data has entered its third era – but has yours?
    Joel Harrison, Adam Leslie, Andy Grant and David Kershaw Recorded: Oct 31 2018 62 mins
    We're entering the third age of B2B data.

    Customers are more cynical than ever about giving out their data and GDPR legislation can lead to huge fines for companies that break or bend the rules.

    Many B2B brands have seen their email databases decimated by the compliance process, and their access to market severely compromised as a consequence.

    At the same time, the rise of Account Based Marketing (ABM) demands a complete rethink of the information required for an effective B2B database (both in terms of breadth and depth), whilst the re-emergence of direct mail as a means of engaging hard-to-reach executives demands the recreation of lost skillsets.

    In this webinar, we’ll examine the impact that these diverse factors (and others) are having on your B2B marketing data, and more importantly provide practical tips for to ensure you are ready and effective for both today and tomorrow.

    Topics for discussion include:

    • How GDPR and PECR legislation are changing the nature of the internal marketing database.
    • How to make your database ABM-ready and compliant.
    • The impacts and implications on data of a world orientated towards inbound marketing.
    • How to use external data sources and resources to make your marketing fit-for-purpose.
    • Why data quality is now more important than ever, and how to achieve the gold standard.

    Understanding the Impact of Labor Laws on Employee Scheduling
    Dorothy Pults, Director of Product Marketing at Shiftboard Dec 27 2018 6:00 pm UTC 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.

    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
