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

Evidence-based governing and citizen-responsive services are essential for today’s state and local officials. We demand from our leaders informed decisions that increase cost-effectiveness and enhance public life.

Through conversations with leaders and expert practitioners, Route Fifty will explore the data-centric strategies and tactics used to inform decision-making, enhance the citizen experience with government services, and increase community engagement.
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.

Additionally, we’ll talk about key things to consider when developing a meaningful performance management process for your organization.
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.

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.

In the private sector, customer satisfaction is a hallmark and requisite for business success. Meanwhile the federal government, despite having the largest customer base in the country serving millions of American citizens everyday, had traditionally focused its efforts on ensuring the mission success rather than customer satisfaction. A majority of citizens are dissatisfied with how well the government works, frequently citing a lack of trust between the government and public, difficulty in seeking relevant services or information from federal agencies delivered on their own terms and a slew of other complaints that could be addressed through improved customer service. How can the government influence customer-focused change within their organizations and boost citizen satisfaction in the services they provide while continuing to meet mission needs.
At Government Executive and Nextgov's 2017 Customer Experience Summit, we'll explore the strategies and success stories behind citizen-centric government.

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)

Not delegating appropriately or effectively stymies employee development at every level. When managers hoard work, they inadvertently rob next level and high potential employees of growth opportunities.

We'll cover it all in this workshop, complete with take-away tools to get started.
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.
