    Appreciation: How It Can Change Everyone's Career
    Rosemarie Wilson | Founder, Speaker, Coach & Mentor - Pragmatica Coaching Recorded: Dec 3 2019 54 mins
    When was the last time you were shown appreciation, recognition or gratitude in your place of work? How does it make you feel, when you’re acknowledged in this way? When did you last do the same, show appreciation, recognition or gratitude in your workplace?

    Gratitude is one of the most important ingredients that makes teamwork and camaraderie possible. Often businesses don't realise how much people care deeply about doing well, so why not recognise and reward your employees as a way to nurture and retain talent and by doing so encouraging employees throughout your organisation to do the same for each other.

    Let’s come together to discuss how to take the first step in creating a culture in which sharing appreciation and gratitude in the moment is as natural as showing up for meetings or checking emails.

    This webinar will explore the benefits of gratitude and appreciation for one another and how to stop shying away from it.

    We will cover:
    - Why should we be appreciative?
    - Recognition and reward, it’s not all about the money
    - Values and feeling valued
    - Benefits of a culture of appreciation
    - What practical steps can you take, be it employer or employee

  • Engagement Programs: How to See Success By Getting Managers Bought In
    Engagement Programs: How to See Success By Getting Managers Bought In
    Skyler Rogers, Senior Programs Manager at Kazoo Dec 11 2019 7:00 pm UTC 58 mins
    HR teams mean well with engagement programs — after all, engagement is essential for strengthening company culture, reducing turnover, and benefitting the bottom line.

    But ask many HR professionals about their struggles with these programs, and they'll point to one common setback: The lack of buy-in and adoption among managers.

    In fact, one recent survey found that 52% of HR professionals cite management buy-in as the biggest barrier to strengthening culture overall.

    This is especially alarming when you consider Gallup recently found manager involvement swings engagement scores by up to 70% among your employees!

    It's time to take managers from blame to fame and unlock the potential of your engagement programs.

    Join these employee experience professionals to see:

    - The fascinating recent research behind managers' role in successful engagement programs

    - Actionable advice HR teams can use to take managers from aware to care when it comes to engagement programs


    - Coaching and training tips for overcoming common pushbacks and making even the most skeptical managers your program's biggest advocates

    Businesses think of freelancers as a quick way to alleviate issues and tasks that their team doesn’t have the bandwidth for.

  • Driving engagement with L&D: Lakeland’s story with Fuse
    Driving engagement with L&D: Lakeland’s story with Fuse
    James Marsh, HRreview; Suzanne Allen, People Project Manager, Lakeland; Sam Lawton, Customer Success Manager, Fuse Universal Jan 30 2020 11:00 am UTC 60 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.

    - Why silos may be causing you to lose high potential talent
    - What to do about silos that have become a problem
    - Ways to build cross-functional collaboration

    Don't wait until it's too late. Assess and address your silo situations before they divide your business any more.
  • 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 Feb 4 2020 8:00 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.

    Family-Friendly Business Practice on a Global Scale?
    James Marsh,HRr; Jennifer Liston-Smith, MFC; Feb 6 2020 2:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    Increasingly employers want a joined-up global approach to supporting employees in combining work and family. Driven by the competition for talent, greater transparency on gender pay gaps and new gender-neutral expectations around parental leave, we need to ‘think globally and act locally’ working with differing cultural considerations, circumstances and expectations.

    In this lively and practical webinar, James Marsh will be discussing emerging global family-friendly trends and solutions with leading global employers and Jennifer Liston-Smith, Head of Thought Leadership at Bright Horizons Work+Family Solutions. We’ll place particular emphasis on what the UK can learn from, and offer to, other global regions.

    Since Bright Horizons acquired My Family Care in February this year, the combined business serves around 1,500 client organisations globally, bringing deep insights into best practice on policy and on provision from workplace nurseries and backup care to coaching for parents and carers, training for line managers and online resources such as the Parental Leave Toolkit.

    Deb Calvert Aug 4 2020 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    I once had a boss who said "I give you a paycheck. That's all the recognition you need." He was missing the point. No one NEEDS recognition... But, studies show, most people do a better job when they get it!

    What You Can Do to Improve the Employee Experience in Your Workplace
    Deb Calvert Oct 6 2020 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    The war for talent is heating up. Employees have options, and they just aren't as loyal as they used to be. But there is something you can do, something that will improve your rates of retention and stabilize your workforce.

    It's all about creating a better employee experience. It doesn't have to be outrageously expensive or terribly time-consuming. You just need the secret sauce that will help you to:

    -- Boost employee engagement
    -- Create a workplace culture that fosters a sense of belonging
    -- Ennoble and enable employees

    That may sound like an elusive fantasy. But it's not. Tune in to find out how you (yes, YOU) can improve the employee experience in your workplace.

    Succession Management: Don't Put So Much Stock in the 9-Box Model
    Deb Calvert Nov 3 2020 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    I don't like it. I don't think it works. And I have yet to hear a single example of its effective, objective application. The 9-Box Model for reviewing talent and for succession management is NOT all it's cracked up to be. If you're using the 9-box model, tune in for a contrarian opinion about:

    -- Ranking people as hi po/ hi per and using this in business decisions
    -- The unintended consequences of ranking people at all
    -- Why your 9-box model isn't really helping you develop bench strength
    -- The added dangers if your process isn't completely transparent

    And, yes, we'll also talk about alternatives that make more sense for effective succession management, talent development, retention, engagement, and other human capital needs inside your organization.
